Sheila, Founder of Seeds of Nutrition, is a Master Nutrition Therapist and a Gut Sleuth™ that helps health-minded individuals uncover the root cause of their ailments so they can find their happy energetic selves.
Sheila’s passion for functional nutrition and her focus on gut health stems from the benefits she herself has experienced from nutritional therapy. She received her training from the Nutritional Therapy Institute, and is Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition. Also having a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and a Master’s Degree in Education, her combined background makes Sheila an empathetic client partner, health educator and practitioner.
Previously as the Lead Nutritionist, Sheila collaborated with Functional Medicine practitioners within an Internal Medicine office. As a certified Brain Health Coach and Heartmath Practitioner, Sheila recognizes that all systems within the body are interconnected; therefore, unexpected sources can impact overall health.
Sheila keeps her nutritional knowledge current by regularly researching the latest nutritional discoveries, attending conferences, continuing education and collaborating with colleagues in the health and wellness community.
Sheila and her family were blessed with a tremendous amount of support during her journey with cancer. Helping others currently battling cancer is a priority for Sheila. She shares her story to groups in an effort to raise awareness and encourage both life-saving stem cell and blood product donations. Sheila also enjoys volunteering with both the Small Choices Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting cancer patients and their care givers, and the Dear Jack Foundation which supports the physical and emotion needs of adolescent and young adult cancer patients and survivors. Sheila also donates a portion of proceeds to cover costs associated with nutritional services for cancer patients in need.
