About Mari

Mom headshotI am a mother, wife, grandmother, nutrition and wellness coach, teacher and speaker. 

I have struggled with allergies, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances, and migraine headaches.  Medications gave me  minimal, temporary relief, but certainly no resolution.  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, and often before, and after my period too.  I looked at the calendar and dreaded how I knew I’d feel those days. Was there anything I could do to prevent them from happening in the first place?  Being a scientist, I went on a search for a better way to mange the excruciating pain.  That’s when  I learned about functional nutrition and never turned back! It makes so much sense! By giving my body what it was missing, making better food and lifestyle 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.
