Hi, I’m Jessica and I was once just like you. My diet was dominated by deep fried things covered in cheese and glasses of wine. I had a high stress job and took work with me on my vacations. I started to have memory issues, fatigue and hair loss. But I really knew something was up when I found a lump on my throat.
Hi, I’m Jessica. I’m a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, former sustainable building expert and passionate health and wellness teacher.
I teach busy professional women like you how to recover from chronic diseases even if you’re juggling work, family and domestic life like a pro juggler in a circus.
I do this by working with you one on one and teaching online workshops that show you the exact steps to take to start training for that marathon that you’ve always wanted to wear a salmon costume to. I provide you with the tools you need make necessary changes as simple as possible so you can focus on what’s important to you, not your illness.
[re: Online Program] You are so good in presenting everything! I really like your voice and your style, not too slow and not too fast. Really like your expertise too, it comes through how competent you are in so many areas. You have done a great job in studying and also presenting the most important stuff in a pedagogic, easy to understand way!Mari - Sweden
How I Got Here
I found a lump. I’ve never been very sick in my life. Always the healthy one in my family. I ended up at the doctors got a diagnosis of Hashimotos and a goiter.
I would be on medication for the rest of my life. Except I’d never feel as energetic as I used to. In fact the last time I can remember feeling great was in high school!
What the heck happened? Sadly this would happen two more times. My hair started falling out leaving big bald patches (alopecia areata) in my otherwise full head of healthy hair. Then I got a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis. I was just floored. I couldn’t figure out how to climb out of this mess. I was obsessed with finding answers and more importantly find solutions.
Through a lot of self experimentation, working with naturopathic doctors and training to become an integrative health coach, I’ve discovered nutrition, detoxing heavy metals and other environmental toxins, eliminating infections and some small lifestyle changes for me have helped me to be on my road to recovery.
The entire time I was going through this process I couldn’t stop thinking about how many women are out there going through the same thing – feeling frustrated, ignored, told there’s no hope and then being sent home with pills that only mask symptoms if that. I am passionate about helping you not go through what I went through or at least short cut that whole process. Don’t let it take 8 years for you to get back on track. I’m here to help.
