Hi, I’m Nina!
and my stress levels used to control my entire life.
If you feel like your anxiety and stress levels are taking control of your life, you’ve come to the right place - because I’ve been right there with you.
A few years back, I was working as a middle school choir director (traveling between 2 buildings and teaching over 500 kids - oy!), studying for my masters degree, and I was filling EVERY single minute of my day with to-do lists and tasks.
I was living my life in a state of chronic stress and I was ignoring all of the little warning signs that my body needed me to slow down.
Eventually, my body just couldn’t keep up.
All of those years of chronic stress had finally turned into uncontrollable anxiety.
Everything just felt HARD.
Situations I used to never think twice about had me on high alert and in extreme worry-mode.
Not only was my anxiety affecting my mental-state, but it had begun to affect my entire body, too.
My hormone levels were all out of whack -- causing unbearable exhaustion, irregular and painful periods, acne, and a rollercoaster of mood fluctuations.
I felt absolutely miserable, and I knew it was time to go see my doctors for help.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get the answers I was looking.
I left my appointments with no answers to my symptoms besides a prescription for anxiety medication and a recommendation for birth control to boot.
there had to be a better way
I knew there had to be a better way, and that’s when I turned towards holistic health and took matters in to my own hands.
Right then and there, I made the choice to learn how to listen to my body, how to get to the root of my anxiety, and I was committed to learning what foods would help my body thrive again.
For the first time in my life, I was learning how to slow-down and prioritize ME again.
it was the best decision I ever made.
Now, I am a full time women’s holistic health coach (after teaching in public education for 7 years), I host a wellness podcast, and I’m ready to help YOU reconnect with your body’s intuitive wisdom too.
Anxiety & Hormone Coaching
My passion is helping women see how beautifully unique and self-healing they are.
That means that your nutritional and lifestyle needs are going to differ from those around you… and that is why a holistic health coach can make all the difference in your success.
You deserve a coach that is ready to dive deep with you, listen to your specific concerns, and give you the individualized guidance you need.
Let’s drop all the outside wellness noise and figure out what’s right for you.

I still teach private voice and piano lessons because music is such a huge part of my life.

You can most likely catch me flowing on my yoga mat, sneaking in a quick meditation, or gabbing on my podcast, Finding Your Shine Podcast.
I strongly believe that we can build a community of women who aren’t controlled by their anxiety and hormones. It’s time that women feel empowered to show up as the BEST versions of themselves int his world.
