About Me: I am a licensed massage therapist and gluten free lifestyle coach
I have been doing massage therapy for over 10 years professionally, but I actually started doing massage as a small child! I've always had a natural inclination to make people feel better. I believe that as a society we are incredibly touch deprived and massage provides an essential service in helping with our general well being, as well as easing stress, pain, and treatment of injuries.
In 2003 I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Prior to that diagnosis, I was morbidly obese, diagnosed with fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, depression/anxiety disorder, hypoglycemia as well as having high blood pressure, hypothyroid function, and high cholesterol. The treatment for Celiac Disease is strict adherence to a diet free of gluten (the protein found in wheat, barley, and rye). Since cutting all gluten out of my diet I have lost 115 pounds and am off all of the prescriptions that I was on.

I am now on a mission to help others who are newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease or those who think they may have Celiac or may be gluten intolerant
I am also an amateur chef (I love to cook) and I have been doing healthy food Food Demo's with Dr. Joe Esposito and Lori Walth, and Lori and I have been asked to do Gluten Free Demos in addition to what we do with Dr. Joe Esposito! We are very excited about this!
I also offer individualized Gluten Free Lifestyle Coaching sessions! Click link for more info!
Nini's Fun Dough is a gluten free play dough that is safe for children with Celiac Disease or Autism. It is handmade by me and kid tested and approved by my daughter and her friends.
