"Experience is the best teacher."
As a teenager struggling to find balance in my approach to eating, I sought refuge in taking advice from miscellaneous magazine articles, diet books, and false online claims about nutrition. Back then, I was overwhelmed by cards stacked against me, such as a deluge of "food halo" terminology, celebrity-pushed fat diets, nebulous food certifications, wrongly stigmatized food groups, and worst of all, a culture that championed the notion that a specific body shape was synonymous to a perfect picture of "Health."
Luckily, things started to change for me throughout my schooling and with practice; I started to realize that obsessing over arbitrary numbers and exercise wasn't the answer.
Through my experiences, a suspicion that had taken root as a teenager was cemented into fact: I want to dedicate my life to helping those struggling with their own biases, convictions, and outside sources of misinformation that further lead to body dysmorphia and an adverse relationship with food.
I want to help you ditch that obsessive relationship with food and fitness culture once and for all. I wholeheartedly believe that YOU are the expert of your own body and experience, and I am here to guide you as you follow your inherent wisdom.
