In 2007, I began my pharmacy journey working as a technician for a major drug store chain. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University College of Pharmacy with my PharmD in 2013.
Since then, I have practiced in traditional retail, mail order, call center and independent retail pharmacy settings.
Long shifts, artificial lighting, toxic work environments and other factors led to a lot of physical and mental stress over time. One day, I decided that enough was enough. I was on a mission to find my health and happiness again.
Annual checkups with my doctor would tell me that I am an average, healthy woman in her mid-30's. But my physical and mental symptoms continuously told me otherwise.
Despite an average 8 hours of sleep every night, a solid exercise regime, and a large support system, I felt like crap!
Brain fog, sore joints, mood swings, lack of energy and focus seemed to be a daily occurrence. So I turned to functional medicine for answers.
With a more guided approach and setting attainable goals, I was able to balance my stress levels and successfully alter my nutrition. My health was rebalanced, where the mental and physical me were no longer living in opposition.
Having hit my own version of rock bottom when it comes to my health and taking action to correct the damage I inflicted, I decided that I should not be the only one to benefit from my knowledge and experience.
