Hello! My name is Grace, and I am the human being behind this website. I originally created this space to give myself a cathartic outlet through writing about my experiences. My passion for wellness sparked in college while I was in the midst of completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training. When I became aware of the power food possesses over our health, I changed my lifestyle and never looked back.

I am originally from Southern California but am now a Portland, OR native. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in August 2018, and am on a mission to spread awareness about this completely misunderstood illness. I sat through many frustrating doctor’s appointments where medical professionals addressed individual symptoms rather than the root cause of my ailments. Conventional medicine seems to lack the holisitic approach necessary to uncover chronic disease. As I make my way further through this journey I am hoping to help others by sharing my experiences.

During the day you can find me detoxing at infrared sauna, drinking matcha, making gut-friendly recipes, practicing yoga, or educating myself about functional nutrition. I graduated from Boston University in 2017 with a Finance degree, but right now healing is my full time job. I hope that once I am in remission I will be able to go into a line of work that allows me to harness my passion for wellness as well as put my business expertise to practice.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, and happy thoughts. You can contact me at nativegrace@icloud.com.
