About Me

My Story

Founder of BioWhole Nutrition, my journey into this wonderful world of Nutritional Therapy came through a series of health events that led me to discover the healing powers of food. After the birth of my first child, I experienced a complete burnout, also known as adrenal dysfunction. Along with that came a whole host of other issues which eventually did resolve from dietary and lifestyle changes.

In 2015, my family got relocated to Taiwan where I started experiencing Gastrointestinal symptoms, Chronic Fatigue and Migraines. Once again, I ended up in a complete burnout. I remember visiting one doctor to another, and not getting anywhere with answers. Tired, frustrated and confused, it was on this path that I found The Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION). I decided I was going to study Nutritional Therapy so that I could heal my body and improve my quality of life. I studied with ION for four years and it was the best decision I ever made.

Food is truly medicine and I now educate my clients to understand how powerful every bite of food can be.  I look at food as information and empower my clients to make the right choices that serves their bodies and lifestyle. Our bodies are innately very smart and when we feed our bodies nutritiously, health and vitality come to surface.  I always tell my clients that “the body always wants to heal” and It is really up to us to enable that by choosing the right foods and lifestyle interventions that serves us. Alongside my consultations, I use strategic tools such as behavior change and motivational Interviewing which are foundational to my interventions.

In an attempt to keep up with current research and to keep the learner in me alive, I am currently pursuing my BSc Honors in Nutritional Therapy from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition. I am a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Counsel (CNHC). I adhere to their code of ethics and strict confidentiality and regularly keep up with clinical practice by attending lectures and conferences.
