Tell us about your occupation.
I am a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition from Bastyr University. I am also a Colon Hydrotherapist and Lymphatic Therapist at The Tummy Temple (A Naturopathic Clinic) in Seattle, WA.
Why did you choose to go into your particular field of medicine/healthcare?
I love food and nutrition and have always been interested in my diet and how it shapes the way I feel. I had many digestive issues when I was younger and colon hydrotherapy along with dietary changes and detoxification changed my life! I love supporting people with Nutrition, Colon Hydrotherapy and Lymphatic Therapy to feel their best.
