For seven years I searched for answers regarding my health. Once I realized I was getting nowhere fast with allopathic medicine I dove head first into every alternative healing modality available. I read books. I studied. My healing would take a few steps forward and then a few steps back. The longer I stayed ill the more I learned. I realize now that God had a very unique “schooling” plan for me. Fast forward to 2020 and I became an Integrative Health Practitioner (IIN, IHP) actively helping my clients take their health into their own hands. Together we peel back the layers of toxicity to find the root cause. We use supportive tools like my self designed Measureable Muscle Testing Method (MMTM) blood chemistry and continuous chat support between protocols to help identify triggers and solutions. When you truly address the root cause your body will amaze you at how it seamlessly rebalances itself. Let’s rebalance together!

My chronic illness story started well before I was aware chronic illness was a term.
A traumatic series of events growing up added to my toxin bucket early on. Following wisdom teeth removal at age 18, my health became a mystery from constant fatigue to adult onset acne to brain fog, the list goes on and so began the relentless search for the root causes of my health issues. From diet, exercise, sleep, to candida, clean beauty products and stress management I researched high and low. My efforts produced temporary results and after seeing markers for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis in my bloodwork I started on an endless pursuit to uncover the root cause. Upon learning parasites, lyme and mold were common root causes for those dealing with chronic illness I embarked on my own journey to heal. This led me down a path of making myself dangerously sick, forcing me to quit my job; leaving me bedridden. By the grace of God I was referred to Laura after seeing multiple functional doctors and practitioners. Through her Measurable Muscle Testing Method (MMTM) Laura was able to identify exactly what was going on in my body and had the intuition, education and knowledge to approach my healing carefully and strategically by opening up my drainage pathways, supporting my cellular/immune function and eradicating pathogens, mold, lyme and toxins.
After just a few months and passing thousands of parasites and releasing hundreds of trapped emotions I started to turn a corner and knew that the most difficult thing I had experienced in my life turned into my God-intended purpose (and teacher) to help and support others through healing, too. I was blessed with the opportunity to join Laura J Perry in her practice in 2020 and have been a teammate and understudy of her expertise and method for almost a year while gaining education and certifications to better support clients from both a physical and emotional standpoint. I believe the two are interconnected; one cannot be addressed without the other. I look forward to working on identifying the root causes and blocks present in your body - uncovering its innate ability to heal you.

My health journey began on January 28, 2016 at 3:30 am. I was being rushed to the emergency room in the midst of a life threatening event that would change the course of my life forever. I didn’t realize it then, but it took years to get to this point. Looking back at this moment, I felt it was the grace of God forcing me to slow down. I was given a second chance to take a deeper look inside, to not only address my physical body, but all of the trauma and loss that I neglected to address over the years. I knew deep in my heart that one day continuing to disconnect from all of this, while putting a smile on my face for myself and others would make me sick in some way. What I didn’t know was how it would manifest, but here it was. My only coping mechanisms, over-exercising and under-eating, depleted my body even more and set the stage for my dire circumstance. Little did I know this experience would become one of my greatest blessings.
In spite of what had just happened I saw countless medical and naturopathic doctors who told me nothing was wrong and my “labs looked great”. Frustrated with their negligence, I realized that I couldn’t count on anyone else to save or fix me. This led to endless hours of educating myself and gaining certifications so I could understand what was happening inside of my body. I discovered root causes like parasites, mold, viruses, heavy metals, and bacteria that contributed to my illness. These were things nobody had talked to me about before. I started working with a practitioner who helped navigate me through this new world, and I started feeling better knowing this was an important piece of my puzzle. I intuitively felt there was something missing, which was the emotional side and dealing with my past trauma. This was exacerbating my root causes and keeping me from making further progress in my healing. Discovering the connection between the physical and emotional components of healing brought me huge progress I hadn’t experienced to this point. These things needed to be addressed together to fully heal my body. Throughout my journey I shared my experience and knowledge with others. I found this to be helpful for those who were looking for answers, as well as a pivotal part of my healing. My practice organically started in this manner from my own passion for finding the root causes in each individual. It was my goal to be the practitioner I wished I found early in my journey, not wanting others to waste the time and money I did to finally get here.
I came across Laura’s practice and method in which she addressed both the physical and emotional aspect of healing. Immediately I knew I wanted to be a part of her practice, surrounded by these amazing like minded women. It was the missing piece for me professionally and felt like home. Working with Laura and her methods extensively truly tied things together for me. I am fortunate to have such a well versed mentor in this space.
Now looking back on that day in January, I see my life truly has come full circle. My experience gives me the opportunity and honor to walk alongside others, helping identify their root causes from a physical and emotional standpoint. It truly is my dream to be able to help others on their healing journey. This experience has truly been my greatest blessing. I look forward to helping you identify your root causes to uncover your body’s innate ability to heal on all levels.

Several years back, my daughter fell extremely ill and experienced life-altering symptoms that shook my family and me to our core. After seeing multiple specialists and spending thousands of dollars... we still didn't have answers as to what was wrong with her. Some doctors turned us away, a few told me I was crazy and others tried to push multiple prescription drugs on her at the tender age of 4.
I refused to give up on my daughter and accept that she would have to suffer like she was for the rest of her life with no answers as to why. I was desperate to help my daughter and was willing to try anything to help her- even if that meant stepping outside my comfort zone and going rogue from traditional Western medicine. Thankfully, I took a leap of faith and was introduced to a whole new world of holistic health and wellness. I learned the ins and outs of why it's important to find the root cause of things and why quick fixes are not the answer. We finally started finding answers for our daughter and received an official diagnosis that she did in fact have a very serious autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder.
I'm in this space because I know firsthand what it's like to have the traditional medical system fail you time and time again. I'm here because I want to help you learn how to be your own health advocate- just like I was for my daughter.
I strive to provide a deep and meaningful holistic experience for clients. Above all, my intent is to help you find total health & wellness through natural means, and assist you in unlocking your true power of healing yourself physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

My chronic illness journey began in 2014. In June of 2013, I went for a hike and came home with 13 ticks on my legs. I never had a bullseye rash, I never suspected Lyme disease. For 6 months I had on and off allergy symptoms that eventually disappeared, until my health crashed. My fatigue level got so severe I would bring a large coffee & 2 espresso shots to my retail job where I could hardly survive a three-hour shift. Shortly after, I started experiencing digestive symptoms, an essential tremor, and muscle weakness simultaneously. I knew something was seriously wrong with my body, but I had no idea what.
I was turned away at the emergency room twice and was told to go home and see a psychiatrist and eat more calories. I went for countless blood draws, CT scans and saw 9 doctors over the course of a year and a half. My gut health was ruined, I could hardly eat. And my list of 32 symptoms and growing was so debilitating I dropped my college courses and could not work. At 21 years old I was sure my life was over. Yet, I knew there had to be a way. I believed in my body's ability to heal. So I began my holistic journey on an endless path of determination to prove all those doctors wrong and find my way back to true health and vitality.
Now, I see that my own experience with Lyme & co's, mold illness & more has truly put me on the path to finding my true purpose and passion. I believe all of us have an inherent God-given right to heal and feel amazing. After pioneering my own holistic journey and finding Laura, I have proven to myself what I always knew to be true: that the power that made the body heals the body, and that given the right supportive environment and protocols, you can make your way back from anything.
My purpose and my goal is to help others so they may never have to endure what I have endured, and to show others that healing on all levels is possible. I am your partner in believing and your partner in healing, so you may never have to feel how I felt when I was turned away by doctor after doctor. If you've been called to heal, you're in the right place.
