I will empower you to prevent, improve or better manage cognitive decline and early Alzheimer's disease by providing education, support, resources, encouragement, and gentle accountability. I've created a private, support group on Facebook where you can learn, ask questions, and connect with others on the same path. My digital courses will soon be available and provide a step-by-step process for the implementation of all aspects of the ReCODE protocol.
As a health educator, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, and ReCODE practitioner, my approach is holistic, scientific, educational, and collaborative. I'm not a doctor. I don't diagnose or prescribe medication. I empower you to improve your brain health through the functional wellness practices that are foundational for the prevention, reversal, and better management of Alzheimer's disease. This includes testing information, educational results reviews, lifestyle and supplement recommendations, referrals to appropriate doctors, and implementation support.
You should also know...
What you also need to know about my approach is that I get it. Every woman in the photo on the left had or has Alzheimer's (my grandmother in the wheelchair, aunt, cousin, mother - photo taken in the early 90's). With a long family history of the disease, I understand the emotional and financial difficulty of an Alzheimer's diagnosis. I know what it’s like to make the heart-wrenching decision to put a parent in a care facility. I know how it feels to wonder if it could happen to you, and I know how quickly that thought is dismissed — and yet, how it also lingers. I know what it’s like to be determined to prevent Alzheimer’s disease in my own life, to search for a solution and to feel skeptical. It's a bold claim, but I'm confident that I will not get Alzheimer's disease, even though my genetics increase my risk. I use the Bredesen ReCODE Protocol to maintain and improve my brain health for the prevention of Alzheimer's, and I invite you to do the same. When you step beyond fear and uncertainty by taking action, you will gain confidence.
I'll keep you informed...
Alzheimer's is a complicated, chronic disease that has many underlying contributors. Fortunately, they can be found with the right lab testing, and then optimized through the implementation of a mostly lifestyle-based program. A diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment or early Alzheimer's disease needs immediate attention.
There's a lot to learn and it can feel overwhelming. If you want to take an easy step toward living an anti-Alzheimer's lifestyle,

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). FDN is a type of detective work that seeks to identify the underlying causes of disease instead of treating symptoms. Using functional lab testing, we can identify healing opportunities and engage each client in a health building process based on the data we collect. This process will include: Diet, Rest/Sleep, Exercise, Stress Reduction, and Supplements.
Bredesen ReCODE practitioner. I received my training from Dr. Bredesen at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in 2016. I have access to ongoing practitioner support, which includes continuing education and the ability to order the ReCODE and Reverse report for my clients.
I received my training as a health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world's top health and wellness experts.
I received health coach training at the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. The health coach certification was developed by trusted medical doctors and is based on a complete approach to wellness that includes instruction in the four pillars of health: lifestyle, exercise, attitude, and nutrition.
My background also includes 14 years with an educational neuroscience company founded by world-renowned neuroscientists, whom I had the opportunity to get to know and learn from directly.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Education from Florida State University and a master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Central Florida.
My combination of functional health experience, health coaching, neuroscience, and teaching uniquely positions me to provide educational solutions for the prevention, reversal or manage Alzheimer's disease.
