I am an interior designer, speaker, advocate, content creator, and podcast host and the CEO and Founder of Health & Home, a revolutionary interior design business that creates beautiful, functional spaces that also support better health.
After becoming chronically ill, I began investigating the factors that could have contributed to such a severe and sudden onset. In the process, I learned something I hadn’t learned in interior design school. The design of a space, and what you put in it, can have a powerful impact on your health – for better or worse.
This motivated me to continue studying the correlation between health and the interior environment during graduate school and various certificate courses. It became abundantly clear that this was an issue, and it wasn’t being addressed.
Subsequently, I developed my approach.
Minimize Toxins + Optimize Design = Maximize Health
This approach ensures that chemicals in the home environment are minimized by replacing unsafe products that can cause disease. The next step is optimizing the design of the space so that it intentionally and naturally supports a healthy lifestyle. When these two methods are used cooperatively in the home, it becomes possible to truly maximize the health of those living there.
This all finally led to the creation of Health & Home, as well as the Health & Home podcast and YouTube channel. I began public speaking in an effort to create more awareness about these topics, and to help others create healthy environments for themselves and their loved ones in an easy, accessible way.
From design students to medical professionals, to any person who lives in a place they call “home” and wants to prevent disease and optimize their health – my talks are engaging, informative, empowering, and may even be life-changing.
