Meet Vanessa

You feel stuck with your weight, joint pain, diabetes, indigestion, high blood pressure, or an autoimmune disease, and don’t know what to do.

You are finding it difficult to live a fulfilling life with your current state of health.

You are frustrated with conventional medicine and its shortcomings?

You just have a sneaky suspicion that there are simple, effective, natural, easy, and often inexpensive solutions to your health problems.

You think that maybe, just maybe, better health is just around the corner, if only someone could show you the way.

You want to be happier, more productive, and to live LARGE, not in size, but in scope.

I understand and want to help.

I am the salmon who has been upstream, who has swum against the current, and can help you on your course to navigate autoimmune disorders, chronic disease, weight loss, and aging gracefully.

Because of my own health struggles I have spent a gazillion hours researching and searching for solutions. I have discovered many ways to promote healing, significantly support my health, and remain high functioning in spite of autoimmune conditions and other health challenges.

As a registered nurse who is passionate about helping people become healthier and happier, it really pains my heart to see people suffering needlessly. I have had my own difficult health journey so I know how hard it is to live a productive, joyous life when struggling with disease and health issues.

Nursing is my second career; my first career was raising six children and helping my husband run his business. I have immensely enjoyed all of it. Then I became certified as a health coach in order to better help people with their health goals.

My autoimmune illnesses have further prepared me to help others. In 2007, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I had been feeling like I was slowly dying. During that time I had chronic, severe abdominal pain; foggy brain; skin issues; horrible memory; depression; and 52 other physical complaints. I know, because I wrote them down one day and counted them.

I love life and fill my time with working as an RN part time, cooking, writing, hiking, reading, playing the guitar, and keeping up with my ever growing family. And of course all things health: books, magazines, podcasts, seminars, etc!

Better health is just around the bend. 

I know from experience that there are so many things you can do to reclaim your health and vitality. I deeply believe in root cause healing. Check out some of my articles and glean from what I have learned and discovered. I offer various programs that can help you achieve your goals.
