my journey to ikigai


Hello! Welcome to Ikigai Nutrition. I started my practice to support those struggling with health and weight management issues through nutrition and lifestyle guidance that is not only effective but also achievable and sustainable.  Prior to my career in nutrition, I worked as a Research Sales Representative in the Biotechnology industry. Though the position was rewarding in some aspects, it quickly became evident that I was sacrificing my physical and mental wellbeing for the betterment of my employer.  My resulting lifestyle was filled with poor habits and terrible diet choices.  Thus when I finally decided to leave sales to pursue my new path in nutrition, I can say with sincerity that it was truly the best decision I have ever made.


Now I want to help my clients accomplish what I was able to achieve, as I strongly believe that we can all sustain healthy lifestyles by utilizing food as nature first intended. I aim to empower my clients in establishing their own ikigai as they develop and maintain healthier habits. For when equipped with the proper nutrition, we can all be at our individual bests in health and longevity.​
