About Mari

Mom headshotI am a mother, wife, recently became a grandmother!, nutritionist, teacher and speaker. 

I have struggled with allergies, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances, and migraine headaches (not easy with a busy household!).  Medications gave me  minimal, temporary relief, but certainly no resolution. I didn’t feel right driving four kids around while medicated. I didn’t want to manage my symptoms and “survive” the day but solve the problem, and feel better! Most importantly, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t unknowingly contributing to these problems. I had migraines with every period, I looked at the calendar and dreaded how I knew I’d feel those days. Was there any way to prevent them from happening in the first place?  Being a scientist, I went on a search for a better way to manage my pain.  In my quest for answers, I learned about functional nutrition and never turned back! It made so much sense! By giving my body what it was missing, making better food choices and lovingly supporting it, allergies and migraines are no longer an issue for me and my hormones are under control. I’m a work in progress, still working on nourishing my precious adrenal glands and finding that sweet work-life-play balance.

My Education & Background

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and a Masters Degree in Nutrition & Exercise. I have always been fascinated by Human Physiology— how this amazing body of ours works. I have additional training in Functional Nutrition which beautifully combines my background in science and nutrition.

Besides nutrition counseling, I have been a teacher and a builder (one house under my belt!).  I also have experience as a Lactation Consultant and as a speaker,  teaching/giving conferences on various topics including Nutrition, Christian Parenting, and Abstinence Education. I speak English and Spanish.
