Why I decided to stop practicing at Dr Ellen Simone's Clinic.
This post is coming in a little late. But it's time I was real about who I am and where I am going.
I have been struggling to come up with the right way to talk about this publicly.
I suppose I should start at the beginning...
Back when I decided to go back to school to study nutrition, I didn't know where this path would lead me. All I knew was, I needed to understand holistic health to help myself and possibly others around me who may be suffering with similar autoimmune conditions. I thought to myself... Wouldn't it be cool if I could start a blog just like the vegan bloggers I so admired, but I really had no Idea how far I would take this whole nutrition thing. Afterall, I was just a vegan girl living with RA trying to get by as a hairstylist, and lower my day to day pain.
Once I began studying, I knew I had to share what I was learning with the world, and shortly after, Nomshell was born. It was incredibly fun to put this blog together and share it with the world! What else could I do I wondered? Several people, from fellow students to instructors believed I should get into clinical practice- I believe they may have seen something in me that I didn't really see myself. When I finished my program I was introduced to Ellen and we became fast friends, bonding over yoga, food and city life. She was opening her own clinic it seemed to be kismet. (We still remain close friends!)
I have enjoyed my time with Dr. Ellen and working with my extraordinary clients for the better part of two years! I would not change a moment of it. Simply put, I had another opportunity come my way and I knew I couldn't turn it down. Unfortunately that meant leaving the clinic which was a difficult decision to make. However, I am extremely excited to go down this new path, working with Fullscript, a company that strives to grow the wellness community and make it more accessible and easier to navigate for Practitioners and Patients alike! And Hopefully this new job will allow me a bit more time to spend on this humble blog... my first love!
Thank you to all of you who have supported me and touched my life in some small way. Each of you is special and it warms my heart knowing you're there reading my articles and recipes, and sharing them with your friends and family.
To my very extraordinary clients: I can't thank you enough for letting me be a part of your wellness journey, you are the reason I am so passionate about food and it's capacity to heal, I have seen it do wonders for my own health and yours. I am incredibly grateful for the experience! I hope you will all continue on your road to health and vitality.
