About Me



I’m a nurse with a life-long passion for health, frugal wellness, and holistic nutrition.  In my spare time, I can usually be found playing with my sons, watching movies with my husband, or blogging…usually with SuperMom coffee or a homemade kombucha in hand. My love of Harry Potter borders on obsessive, and I’ve recently discovered a passion for painting, even though I’m not very good.

My interest in holistic health and wellness became personal in college when I developed stress-induced health issues, including terrible eczema, lactose-intolerance, severe acne for the first time in my life,  and a total weight gain of close to 45 pounds.

Transitioning to a toxin-free lifestyle helped me lose all the weight as well as gain mental clarity, the energy to exercise, healed my skin, and balanced my emotions. I did so all on a very tight budget, and I love sharing the tips and tricks I learned along the way. Everyone can live a healthy lifestyle, no matter your budget.

  1. I just recently went process food free, it’s been a struggle! Mainly for food prep as you mentioned! I’m excited to see someone on the other end of the spectrum, something to look forward to! Thanks for the post!

    1. That’s great, Kayla! It’s definitely a process, but it gets easier with practice! Soon processed foods will be foreign to you. 🙂

  2. Hi there,

    I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I’m working on a medical delivery project and I think it’s something you could definitely relate to. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.
