Aren’t my genes set in stone? If I can’t change anything, why get tested?
It’s often assumed that we can’t change our genes — so why even try? The truth is that while we can’t change our DNA code, our gene expression is a bit of a different story. Our genes express themselves in different ways, and not only affect how we interact with the world around us, the world around us affects how our genes express themselves. That means that lifestyle and food choices we make can actually influence how our genes work. Our genes aren’t set in stone, and there’s a lot we can do to help them impact our health.

I began my career working in the pharmaceutical industry. I transitioned into natural medicine over 15 years ago when my son was young and had health problems due to gluten and other food allergies. Since then, I've remained passionate about healing the body with whole foods and other holistic modalities. I have formulated many gluten-free & dairy-free health products that have been sold nationwide and I love sharing my passion for health and wellness through patient care and education. I'm passionate about longevity and how diet and environment can influence the way we live and feel younger. I'm a mother of two, a chronic dog adopter, and love sports, travel, and photography.
