I completed the Ideal Protein weight-loss program after the birth of my son. Not only was I able to lose the baby weight, but I was also able to lose more than expected in just 4 short weeks! I was so thrilled with my transformation that I decided to implement this amazing program into my chiropractic clinic.

Since then my passion for nutrition has grown immensely. Not only have I seen patients feel better about themselves with their new, healthy weight, I’ve seen many health transformations. As a result of their weight loss, many of our patients with diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and thyroid dysfunction have told us they were able to reduce and even eliminate their medications. Returning health from the inside out is the most important aspect of this program. I am truly honored to be a part of this journey with my patients.

As an acupuncturist, I have been passionate about nutrition and metabolism for over 15 years. In my practice I have counseled many people on the benefits of eating a whole foods diet. In addition, I have prescribed herbs, supplements, and exercise in order to facilitate weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes.

What I love about the Ideal Protein diet, is it gives me an additional tool to use with my patients who are either struggling with losing a few extra pounds or are in need of a more serious intervention. Working with patients to achieve their weight loss goals with Ideal Protein, I get to help people change their lives. I truly love my work!
