Hi, I'm Natalie.
A functional nutritionist, master health coach, and mindset expert who specializes in female hormones, metabolism, and thyroid disease.
I'm a mom of 3, wife of a veterinarian, obsessed with lattes, Boston Terriers, horses and the beach.
I also have Hashimoto's and PCOS.
My journey to where I am now wasn't met without years of being dismissed by medical providers.
Multiple miscarriages, and handfuls of prescribed anti-depressants.
I was told I was depressed, needed birth control to "balance my hormones", and needed to "rest more" for my fatigue.
My perseverance (aka stubborn-ness) lead me down the path of self-healing when no one would help me.
I was tired of watching my life passing me by, and at one point told my husband "this must be what it feels like to die".
I knew there was more for my life. I wanted to thrive- not just survive.
My family and I divide time between the mountains of North Carolina living in Asheville, and the sea in Wilmington, North Carolina.
When I'm not moming, or supporting my clients (and drinking copious amounts of lattes) I'm spending time on the beach, paddle boarding, hiking, riding my Peloton, knitting, or horseback riding.
I am a foodie at heart enjoying tacos, donuts and noodle dishes.
I enjoy spicy margaritas and love exploring craft breweries.
My sense of humor is dry, and while I don't watch a ton of TV, I prefer humor (Schitt's Creek)
and Star Wars
The unfortunate part is most of my issues stemmed from a poor relationship with food and my body. Using food as a reward, exercise as a punishment and trying to fit my body into an unrealistic standard.
