Private Eye for Vital Health, LLC
Holistic Health Practitioner
I have had a lot of different experiences in my life - all of which I believe have led me to this point of my career. I have a strong teaching/coaching background dating back to when I was a teenager with horseback riding, then subsequently became a certified secondary level English teacher. As my interests evolved, I felt a calling to health care, so later earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). Always gravitating to the difficult cases that weren't well understood because they really needed help the most, I continued my education and became a Board Certified Neurologic Clinical Specialist (NCS). However, throughout all of this I wasn't able to conquer my own personal health challenges and started to struggle to do my job secondary to worsening symptoms. After having a lot of frustrating experiences with both conventional medicine and functional practitioners, I decided to take a deep dive into the space myself. I studied and became a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P), which not only helped to shed light on my own case, but also really opened my eyes to the possibilities of helping people take their health into their own hands and become better advocates for themselves. Constantly watching my family, friends, and patients struggle with understanding their mysterious symptoms has been very frustrating. I am determined to learn as much as I can and help as many people as possible to open their eyes to the reality of modern health issues. Even with everything I have gleaned over the years in my personal health journey, it has been difficult to decipher the conflicting views and claims regarding gluten. I believe that this Certified Gluten Free Practitioner (CGP) education is absolutely essential to assist anyone with proper healing and health building. I am very thankful to have found this education and group of professionals, as we will all keep learning together and striving for excellence in this space!
