About Leslie

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 13 years old after several long and awful months being ill. If you’re reading this, you may relate to feelings of frustration with Dr.’s visits in which your symptoms were brushed off, getting one inconclusive test after another, or trial and error with heavy duty medications with no relief and/or LOTS of side effects.  

Right after I was diagnosed, I was told that the etiology of the disease is still unknown, there was no cure, and nothing else to do but take medication for the rest of my life. 

I knew that somehow I wasn’t just

going to be a victim

to this disease for the rest of my life

and that I would not be beholden to medications.

 

Being so young and so sick was difficult because I was confused and didn’t know how to advocate for myself. However, the blessing is now I’ve had several years to learn about autoimmunity, natural ways of healing, self-care, and what works for me.  

 

I am now a Registered Nurse, Integrative Health Coach, and Certified Yoga Teacher that works with individuals living with autoimmune diseases who suffer from pain, fatigue, and worry. I offer empowerment and hope through personalized coaching so they can feel vibrant, beautiful, and productive.

Collectively, autoimmune diseases are among the most prevalent diseases in the U.S.,

affecting more than 23.5 million Americans.

They are more common among women.

When I have a flare up, I feel like I have nothing.

Without good health, everything in my life suffers from relationships, to work performance, to mental health and motivation. There’s no energy left to give out. Can you relate? 

 

I walk this path with you, and I can help you take charge to turn your life of scarcity into a life of abundance.

 

I’ll partner with you on your individual journey, bringing empathy, understanding and patience mixed with professional expertise, and evidenced-based methodology.

Who is stopping to ask why?

We must change our paradigm of health in which medication and invasive procedures are preferred over lifestyle interventions and natural ways of healing. After a lot of self-experimentation I learned how to manage my condition and live a life full of abundance (and with hardly any medication)!  How you ask? By making small yet profound adjustments to ALL OF THE THINGS! Food, sleep, movement, spirituality, relationships, my physical surroundings, and resiliency.

Are you suffering from fatigue, pain, or

emotional instability?  Are your job, relationships, and productivity suffering?

 

Your lifestyle could slowly be

wearing you down and making you sick.
