#1 most pesticide-riden produce item. Make sure you know where your produce is coming from and that you only buy organic from the ”Dirty Dozen” list.

The average American eats about eight pounds of fresh strawberries a year – and with them, dozens of pesticides, including chemicals that have been linked to cancer and reproductive damage. A jaw-dropping amount of chemicals and pesticides are used in the production of non-organic strawberries. Learn more about it at

It's great to be on the trail again with my pup for a Monday morning hike to get the week started off right! 🐕‍🦺 🚶‍♀️

Shout out to @debbyjewesson at @therootsgroup for having such a presence on my bookshelf...This doesn't even count the audible books! :)

As a new entrepreneur and female business owner you have given me the knowledge and confidence that I CAN DO THIS! I wouldn't be where I am today without you.

Take time to get outside and smell the flowers...🌻

And doing it with your pup makes it even sweeter! 🐾


As I walk away from 2021, I realize that it was one of the hardest of my 42 years. Now, looking forward into 2022 I am committed to bringing only positive energy with me and making this an amazing year. I have so many exciting new changes to look forward to, both personally and professionally!⁠

For 2022 I COMMIT to:⁠

🔆 Spend more time in nature, where I feel grounded and connected⁠

🔆 Ignore the self-doubt and uncertainty that I sometimes experience as an entrepreneur, and instead embrace the unknown with curiosity and excitement⁠

🔆 Appreciate and nurture relationships in which love and loyalty are unconditional, and stop spending my energy in those that aren't⁠

🔆 Make self-care and nurturing a mandatory part of my daily practice (yes, practice what I preach)⁠

🔆Practice stepping out of my comfort zone a little more (like posting all of this on IG haha), as this is where true growth and opportunity lies⁠

Another day with Dr K on one of my most favorite AND complex topics...AUTOIMMUNE THYROID DISORDERS.

Digging deep into the latest, cutting-edge research on how to treat these patients from a functional medicine perspective.


Just a little weekend family WOD + Maddie the Boxer.

Spending the day with Dr Kharrazian learning more about the enormously complex topic of AUTOIMMUNITY. Brilliant scientist, clinician and teacher.

Autoimmunity is rampant in the United States and will continue to increase as we expose ourselves to dirty food, dirty air, environmental chemicals and unhealthy lifestyle with poor sleep, lack of movement and high stress. 🏭🧪🍩

Learn how you can prevent an autoimmune condition or manage your existing autoimmune condition and prevent others with functional medicine.

So true!

Laughter, friendship and the memories we share will be the only things we take with us. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors.

This is my echinacea plant from my garden. Each year it returns bigger and more beautiful! In addition to it's beauty, echinacea can be used for medicinal purposes. It's most helpful for preventing viral infections but also has been shown to reduce the severity and/or duration of upper respiratory tract symptoms.


Make sure you take advantage of the sale and stock up on your clean, non-toxic skincare and makeup. Don't forget your sunscreen!! 🌞☀️🏖⛱



Thank you @happytimebee for letting me sample your Heal Everything Multi-Use Body Whip and Sleep Head Spray. Both smell delicious and I love the silkiness of the Body Whip. Especially nice on my dry hands! Yum!! ♥️♥️♥️


Another IFM conference in the books, virtually!! I always leave feeling even more inspired to spread the word about FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE. Can't wait to share the new things I've learned.
Particularly in these incredibly uncertain times of covid-19 it's so important to focus on preventing and reversing chronic diseases and living a clean lifestyle with clean food, clean air and clean water. 🚰💦🥗🥓🥑 Thank you Dr Susan Prescott, immunologist, pediatrician and artist for your beautiful (she literally hand-made each slide), empowering and relevant presentation. I hope to see the same presentation on TED talks soon! What an inspiration!! 🖼🎨


So excited to get my @whoop ♥️

As a functional medicine NP I teach my clients every day about the importance of sleep!! 💤😴💤

WHOOP measures stages of sleep, heart rate variability (HRV), and resting heart rate (RHR) to help you optimize recovery so you can operate at your peak performance.🏋️‍♀️

So interesting to see the how the HRV plummets when I've had a stressful day or haven't optimized my sleep. Even better is that WHOOP then gives you tips on workout intensity and sleep to help in recovery. I've already noticed a marked improvement in my performance and sleep.😴

Will definitely be recommending to my clients!! 03/31/2020

Happy National Puppy Day!

In the midst of these diffict times I can't think of any other place I'd rather be than with my puppy Maddie.

The science is overwhelming that owning a pet improves mental and physical health.

1. Improve your immune system 😷💪

2. Reduce blood pressure and cholesterol❤

3. Decrease feelings of social isolation (so important right now!!) 🥰

4. Increase your opportunities for exercise and outdoor activities🌄

5. Increase levels of serotonin and dopamine, "feel good" neurotransmitters that reduce stress and make us feel happy😁

So while we're all in isolation for covid-19 be sure to take advantage of all of the amazing health benefits of having a pet!!🐕🐕‍🦺🐶

I'm passionate about clean skincare and makeup. You would be amazed at the number of chemicals we put on our skin every day, most of which are unregulated.
