My personal story

They told me that fertility treatments were my only option. But they were wrong.

I started TTC at age 34, thinking I was super healthy – I loved to run and ate gobs of kale- so I didn’t anticipate that when my IUD came out, my period would go with it. I knew enough to know that missing my period was not good.

Somehow, I eventually did get pregnant, only to lose the baby 😓.

I left my doctor’s office frustrated and confused that she didn’t care to investigate what was wrong. She said everything came back “normal”, so she’d refer me to a fertility clinic. End of story. 

But my instinct told me there was an underlying issue that needed to heal. Long story short, I got myself from missing periods and a heartbreaking loss, to now, the mom of two rowdy healthy boys.

I’ve spent the last decade as a dietitian, integrating the best of evidence-based medicine with holistic healing, to help hundreds of women restore their cycles, balance their hormones, and get their baby. 

It’s your turn!

Knowledge is power, and I want to share mine with you

If your cycles are irregular or missing, you’re figuring out PCOS, hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA), or you-have-no-idea-what-because-all-they-told-you-was- “unexplained”, then I can help you to:

  • Restore regular cycles and balanced hormones
  • Achieve an optimal weight for a healthy pregnancy
  • Improve egg (and sperm!) quality for easier conception and less risk of loss
  • Build a healthy uterine lining, that’s a welcoming home for baby-to-be
  • Rest assured that you’re doing everything within your power, and that your body is ready to make a healthy baby. 

TTC can be lonely, but it doesn’t have to be. You don’t have to go it alone, and you don’t have to reinvent the wheel figuring it all out. I got you.

My Professional Story

After earning my MS in Nutrition Science & Policy at Tufts University, I trained in clinical research and medical nutrition therapy at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center. I specialized in endocrine disorders, namely PCOS and obesity, as I supported clinical trials researching novel treatments. 

In 2012, I moved to Portland, Oregon to accept a position at OHSU, where I developed and managed prenatal wellness programs for the academic medical center. I saw the powerful impact lifestyle changes had on a woman’s fertility and pregnancy outcomes. I became obsessed with prenatal health and haven’t looked back.

I opened my private practice in 2015 and dove deep into women’s health, including advanced training in Women’s Integrative & Functional Medicine with Dr. Aviva Romm. 

The preconception period is a unique window of time when you have the most influence over the health and wellbeing for generations to come. This is where my life’s work is centered – on teaching women like you how to nourish yourself so you can grow the family of your dreams and have enough energy to enjoy the wild ride of motherhood.
