Hi! I’m Carla
I have always been interested in health, resulting in the majority of my career focused on sales and marketing of medical products used in hospitals that positively impacted patient’s lives and clinical outcomes in the operating room and intensive care units. My interest and passion drove me to explore healthcare from another lens- one focused on interventions that support Nourishment, health and wellness.
So, at mid-life, I decided to shift my career; from a sales and marketing consultant to a practitioner dedicated to partner with those who are interested in making shifts and creating goals to support their health and wellness.
To provide foundation for this change, I decided to pursue this knowledge through several academic programs. My studies have focused on traditional herbal medicine, and chronic disease management for aging adults, from a sociological perspective. Rounding out my education, I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition.
I believe that Nourishment is an essential key to our health, particularly as we continue to age. I continue to be inspired by those who actively explore those interventions that support their health; even in the presence of chronic illness.
As you can see, I love learning!
Shifting my career, at mid-life, has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences so far. You may have heard of the phrase, “always be learning” – I embrace that spirit of curiosity and knowledge. There is a wisdom to aging that continues to inspire and drive me toward the future- and I hope it does for you as well!
