Meet Amy

Holistic Wellness Practitioner, Coach, and Nutrition Specialist 

I am a homeschooling mom of three wild and active kids, a former elementary school teacher, retired high school field hockey coach, and now holistic practitioner and dedicated advocate for children’s health and nutrition. I enjoy asking, and being asked, hard questions, learning new skills, nourishing family and friends with nutritious and delicious home-cooked meals, working in my garden, and taking long reflective walks alone in the woods.
 

I began pursuing this path of holistic wellness when conventional medicine and all the “experts” couldn’t provide the answers I needed to help heal my second child, who was born with a number of puzzling health challenges. For almost a decade, I have been educating myself in the area of ancestral health, functional medicine, and whole food nutrition, and am convinced that this approach is, and always has been, the heart and soul of human health. My passion is helping moms discover their untapped potential for health and vitality, so they can then nurture and safeguard their children, who are our future.

I have a Master’s Degree in Teaching and a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Virginia and am certified as a Primal Health Coach, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Functional Hormone Specialist, and Functional Blood Chemistry Specialist. With each new area of study, I am more amazed at the divine complexity and innate wisdom of the human body. We are, indeed, fearfully and wonderfully made!
