Hi, I'm Claire!

I'm a certified holistic nutrition consultant who offers empowering support to women and families. I specialize in pregnancy and postpartum nutrition, lifestyle, and supplement care, as well as education on introduce your baby to solid foods. I am certified to help with certain conditions during these stages of life or can help guide you if you are simply seeking to rebuild your diet in a biologically and ancestrally consistent way. 

I'm a daughter of God, wife, mom, college graduate who found her calling after graduation (RIP my Communications degree), furry dog + cat owner (RIP all my black clothes), and meme queen -- after all, isn't humor just another form of medicine?

My husband and I were so incredibly excited to welcome our first baby in July 2023. This feels like both a new beginning and the culmination of a very long, very difficult journey. For four years, we struggled with two losses and then unexplained infertility. No doctor could explain why I could not get nor stay pregnant, as on paper, we were both as healthy as could be. 

Over time, I became more and more frustrated with the limits of our western healthcare system when it came to situations like mine. If I was so healthy, why wasn't I getting pregnant? I saw doctor after doctor, specialist after specialist, but the only thing I gained from them were medical bills. I felt very intuitively that there must be an answer - a root cause - and that if I didn't find and address this answer, my fears and issues would follow me even if I tried IUI or IVF. 

Being a research nerd, I began to look into into other methods of healthcare with an almost feverish obsession. There had to be answer somewhere. Chiropractic care, acupuncture/TCM, functional medicine, low-toxic living, naturopathy... The deeper I went, the more answers I found. My lifelong IBS, 12 years of undiagnosed endometriosis, chronic anxiety, and more were all connected to bacterial + parasitic infections and a very standard, toxic diet. Within months of addressing these issues with a holistic practitioner, my IBS went away, my periods became pain-free and returned to regularity, and I have not had a single anxiety attack since.

 

At the same time as this was happening, I became very interested in low-tox living and nutrition. With my husband cheering me on, I created a blog detailing our journey and all the things I was learning. Friends began coming to me for advice on diet and lifestyle, especially in regards to common female conditions like hormonal issues and fertility care. I'm a lifelong student and a big fan of continuing education, so I enrolled in the Oh Baby program to learn more about supporting women (and myself) through nutrition and supplementation. Halfway through my program, one year after detoxing the infections, and one week before a scheduled laparoscopy for the endometriosis... I received my first positive pregnancy test after 2 1/2 years of infertility. 

My pregnancy, birth, and postpartum were nothing short of magical, and I credit everything to God and the path that He put me on. That's not to say they were perfect, but instead that I felt empowered nutritionally and mentally to handle whatever came. If it weren't for the struggle of 4 years of trying to conceive, the loss of my two little ones, and the murkiness of infertility, I wouldn't have the opportunities I do now. I wouldn't have the compassion, empathy, and experience that can help other women on their journeys. What better way to honor those small lives?

With over 1,000 hours of education and independent research, I am so excited to get into the weeds and empower you to understand your own health better. Whether you're here because you want to get pregnant, you already are a mom, or you're simply curious, I look forward to meeting with you and offering a guiding hand.

My Philosophy

My goal is to empower my clients with information and research, so that they can make the best decisions for their health - even when that information may go against conventional recommendations or outdated government guidelines.

I believe in the body's innate ability and desire to heal, and that the way we live, eat, and think has a powerful impact on that ability. By realigning our lifestyle with our biology and ancestral approaches, we are able to provide our body with the support it needs to function at its best.

I believe that fertility is the apex of wellness, and should be prioritized even if you are not interested (currently or at all) in having children. Procreation is an overabundance of metabolic energy, similar to luscious hair, regular digestion, and a strong immune system. 

I believe that resiliency - not invulnerability - is the goal of health. By supporting your body according to its unique design and needs, you will be better able to withstand the storms of life: stress, hardship, sickness, etc. True health does not mean you will never deal with sickness, stress, or aging, but instead handle them with resiliency, grace, and peaceful understanding, both physically and emotionally.

I believe in empowering women to regain control of their own health and teaching informed consent. In this age of information, it can be difficult and confusing to know which way, method, or lifestyle is the correct one. By providing risk vs. benefit analysis based on personal experience, traditional wisdom, and current research, I put the power back into my clients' hands so that they may make the best decisions for themselves and their families.

I will not rescue you,
for you are not powerless.
I will not fix you,
for you are not broken.
I will not heal you,
for I see you in your wholeness.
I will walk with you through the darkness,
as you remember your light.
