My Healing Journey
Before becoming a board-certified integrative holistic family physician and health coach to thousands, I was an overweight and unhealthy child. Born and raised in Illinois and completed residency in South Bend, Indiana, after which, I joined Physicians HolisticHealth Alliance. There, I witnessed firsthand the struggles each patient suffered to heal their underlying issues, and their frustration on where to begin to help heal their issues. With my team at PHA, which included a nutritionist, psychotherapist, exercise physiologist, chiropractor, acupuncturist and other board certified physicians, I was determined to get to the root cause of disease for each patient and myself. After researching hundreds of holistic books/publications from the top professionals, with hundreds of success stories in all her patients and experiencing firsthand the power of healing as I lost 50 pounds, beat hypothyroidism, eczema, sebhorrheic dermatitis, acne, fatigue, alopecia, muscle/joint pain, weight and digestive issues, all with balancing a growing family and work! My enthusiasm for holistic health continues to grow and thrive. Years of study and interactions with patients have transformed my life as a doctor and coach to people with chronic conditions. In 2015, I moved to my home town where I continues my passion at Prairie Trail Family Medicine, Aurora, Illinois. Everything I prescribe, she have painstakingly researched and lived myself!
What Else Am I Up To?
Enthusiastically educating and impacting lives is my hobby, passion and life-purpose, and resonates in all that I have accomplished in such a short time: a rapidly growing social media presence, published articles, public speaking events and success with healing diseases.
My articles are regularly published by Holistic Primary Care and the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine, which has also featured me in its member spotlight. I continue to teach classes and workshops on how to holistically manage health conditions, most recently with for The Documenting Hope project.
I have made it my lifelong mission to ignite the flame of holistic health in all patients/families and practitioners, and have written a book called, “The HolisticRx: Every Patient’s Guide to Healing and Preventing Chronic Disease”.
My crazy life at home is filled with five young, very active boys (4 sons and a husband). So I am constantly surrounded by an enormous amount of testosterone. My parents sacrificed everything they owned to put all four of their children through medical school. For that reason, I am very blessed that I am able to focus on my hobby-- helping families heal and prevent disease, despite a crazy and busy schedule.
Let’s be honest: implementing lifestyle changes to keep you and your family healthy is hard, especially when you don’t know where to start, what you can do to fit into your busy lifestyle keep your family and wallet happy.
The most frequent question I get asked from ALL my patients is, “What can I realistically eat to optimize health?!”
Join my family and I will send you my main recipes and tips in, “Happy Healthy Tummies : My Family's Favorite Fast & Easy Recipes (that Heal too…Shh)" to help you jump start your health towards healing and prevention!
Let the fun begin! Yay!
