ABOUT NERD MOM NUTRITION
I've always been interested in food and health.
I've also always loved Star Wars, playing video games, Harry Potter, DnD, and reading fantasy/sci-fi books.
When I graduated high school, I decided to go to Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Ottawa. I proceeded to work in several restaurants, and started a business degree at Memorial University. Then, by the age of 22 I opened a small restaurant in my hometown, St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Around this time, I noticed that my hands had some eczema on them. I would go to the doctor who would prescribe me some cortisone cream. It would clear up temporarily but it would always come back. I always found this frustrating and disheartening.
Fast forward a few years, I met and married my wonderful husband and we have 2 young children. I started to take a real interest in healthy foods to help start my children out on the best possible path. I decided to become a health coach to help me learn how to do this.
My own health issues
After my little guy was born, my energy tanked. I was exhausted, overwhelmed, moody and I had lost Kelly and become this entity called "Mom".
One day, I was cooking supper and the kids were fighting about something kids fight about and I got so overwhelmed that I yelled at the kids.
They started crying, and I felt sooo guilty that I just sat down on one of their little red lego chairs and bawled my eyes out.
This wasn't what being a mom was supposed to be like...
That was the line in the sand. This is where I knew that for me to be the best mom, I had to get me back and start taking care of myself.
So I decided to go back to the drawing board and look at my diet, lifestyle and mindset. After making some changes I am starting to feel much happier, more energetic and more like my wonderful nerdy quirky self!
I want other busy nerd moms to feel amazing! They need to love life, not just suffer through it. There is no need for suffering, there is usually a solution. Many times food, mindset and lifestyle changes can help. My goal is to help as many busy nerd moms as possible get the energy to love life and ditch the mommy guilt just like I did!

After suffering 10 years with chronic eczema, Kelly was amazed that within 6 months her eczema completely cleared with diet changes and natural remedies.
A couple of years later Kelly had her second child and like many new moms found herself exhausted all the time, lacking self care and experiencing a constant roller coaster of emotions. She knew she needed to get her energy back in order to be the best mom she could be.
It was this experience combined with her previous eczema condition that ignited her interest in natural nutrition.
