It all started with…

Hi Friends!

I am the creator of The Golden Gut, a community of self-healers encouraged and inspired to find wellness of the body+mind+spirit though your gut! I was raised following the Golden Rule to treat others how we want to be treated. So shouldn’t we offer this same respect to ourselves? And that, my friends, is how The Golden Gut came to be!

It is my hope to help others understand the important roles that our gut plays in our lives! My journey trusting my gut all started with an E. coli infection and C. diff colitis diagnosis that left me to figure out a new normal with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Over time, I have slowly learned how to take care of my gut health, which has ultimately allowed me to deepen my gut feelings and grow in areas of self-development that only trusting my gut has lead me to!

I know that many of you seek to find a balance with your gut, whether that be with your gut health or gut intuition. With The Golden Gut, I hope to help awaken a more mindful community, learning how heal, trust and take care of our gut!

I’m a Midwesterner through and through. I live in Indianapolis with my husband and our fur babies, but will forever be an Ohio girl (Go Bucks!). I adore long walks along the Monon Trail and staying active, trying out  health-infused cafes and restaurants, and admiring local artisans at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market. My Golden Rule in life is to stay curious, eat feel-good foods, and just love!

I adore new experiences and new people, so please don’t be a stranger! DM me on Instagram at @thegoldngut (yep! No E) or drop me a note at! I hope you stay a while, relax + find a friend in me.
