I'm your plant based, ginger bestie who loves all things holistic healing! On my days off you can find me thrifting, listening to vinyls, riding my bike or hanging out with my baby nephew, Elijah. My ride or die (Coco) and I love all things Indie- Indie music + Indie movies. Working with my hands, connecting with soul mate clients and helping you all heal has been the biggest joy of my life.  Always rooting for you!

I TOOK A SCARY LEAP + GOT OFf
BIRTH CONTROL: AGE 23

I knew that I couldn’t do it by myself and I needed a medical professional to find out internally what was causing chaos.

That’s when I discovered naturopathic medicine!

I worked with a local naturopath for about 6 months and my skin got a lot worse… I wasn’t diagnosed with anything and wasn’t satisfied with the answers or health care I was receiving. While that area of my healing was lacking, I was doing everything in my power to make acne my bitch. I invested in advanced acne courses, spent countless hours talking to mentors / experts in the field (who I adore so much!!) and spent all my time reading about holistic esthetics and holistic healing.

AS YOU CAN SEE, YA GIRL WAS HURTING.

Thankfully, when I went to see the new naturopath… my life was forever changed.

I was diagnosed with PCOS, poly cystic ovarian syndrome. A hormonal disorder that if gone untreated can give you the lovely symptoms I had been suffering with: acne, weight gain, excessive hair growth etc.

I had to completely change my life. The way I ate, the way I managed stress, and so much more. From the moment I went off birth control July 2020 to this picture in February 2021 I was consistent with my skincare routine and facial treatments. I practice and preach holistic esthetics because you can not heal externally if you don’t heal internally.

JULY 2021 to NOW!

I know that there’s so many of you that feel like you’re drowning out there, just like I was. Acne is physically, emotionally and mentally painful. It is exhausting to feel like you’re doing everything it takes to heal and feel well, but spinning in circles.

I am so proud of my acne journey. I have dedicated my life to understanding acne so I can help educate, support and guide you through your skin healing journey as well. I know what skincare ingredients / products work, I know what facial protocols will get you the results you crave, BUT I also know that unless you’re internally healthy- you’ll be stuck. I’m here to teach you all I know! Let’s enjoy the journey.

Always rooting for you!

ACNE WAS HERE + HAPPENIN’: AGE 12 - 22

First it began on my body - back, chest, neck. Eventually working its way onto my face- oh the joy!

I saw multiple dermatologists, gynecologists and worked closely with my primary care(s). Not one single medical professional gave me a diagnosis or tried to find the root to my symptoms.

Some prescriptions provided a little relief, but it was always short lived and always came back much….much worse.  I don’t have any picture documentation of this time in my life as I was swallowed with immense embarrassment and shame.

It was a dark chapter in my life and I’m so grateful I didn’t give up!

THE NEW YEAR COMES AROUND AND
MY health felt like a dumpster fire...

It felt like overnight my health was set on literal F I R E.
My acne went from mild to severe. Covering me from head to toe in painful, inflamed breakouts. At this time I stopped working with the prior naturopath as I felt I wasn’t being truly listened to and helped.

A client of mine recommended her naturopath’s facility as they specialized in women’s hormone health. Not going to lie, I was timid. I had already invested in the prior naturopath and I was scared to invest out of pocket. I knew deep down that whatever was going down internally needed a doctor who knew their shit and was willing to put the work in to help me figure it out. No amount of skincare and facial treatments was going to resolve this severity of breakouts.

I REALLY STARTED TO FEEL THE HARD WORK PAY OFF.

Acne has settled down. Scarring is quickly healing and inflammation is diminishing. My new diet and lifestyle is now a habit. My naturopath is proud of my progress. The hard work is paying off baby!!
