My career as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner goes much deeper than a love for nutrition. Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. Over time, math and science became the two dominating subjects and loves in my life. In high school, I became involved in the Korean martial art of Taekwondo and eventually earned my Black Belt. Resulting from a project completed during an anatomy and physiology course in my senior year, I decided to pursue Exercise Science in college. I thought that this major would perfectly bond my love of math, science, and health of the body and mind. I graduated from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon with two Bachelors of Science degrees in Exercise Science and Mathematics. As a result of yet another project, this time for an internship requirement for my Exercise Science major, I found out about the Nutritional Therapy Association. After dealing with skin issues for years, I thought that a nutrient-dense diet that was vastly different from the Standard American Diet might finally be the way to help combat my skin troubles (Spoiler Alert: It did!). Upon graduating from Linfield College, I dove right into the certification program, and soon after graduated from the NTA as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
I opened my practice as an NTP as a way to share my knowledge with those around me who might also be dealing with health issues who want to look for an answer outside of the pharmaceutical industry. Find out how I can help you!
