Hi! I’m Sharon from Simple Family Wellness!
I am a wife to my fantastic husband, mother to five beautiful and crazy kiddos, Registered Dietitian and homeschooling mama! Whew! That’s a lot of hats and I love each of them.
I served in the Navy after studying oceanography at the United States Naval Academy and being on the ocean was fantastic; the stars, the sound of the waves . . . I loved it. Then I re-connected with my childhood crush and we got married. I decided to shift into a healthcare career but before I really got that going we had our son! As a result of that little bundle of joy I decided to stay home, instead.
Then things changed.
About this time I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, my mother was diagnosed with a major, life changing digestive issue and my husband was training for a military assignment. Breastfeeding our new little guy wasn’t the peaceful motherhood experience I’d wanted and we put him on formula. I felt so guilty and defeated.
All of the sudden I realized just how little nutrition knowledge I really had. I was essentially operating in the dark. I began researching nutrition for endurance athletes, nutrition for my mom’s condition, infant nutrition, and there was only one book about my disease I could find, so I read that. It was overwhelming.
I had an Idea!!!
For the first time I came to understand the phrase, “you (REALLY) are what you eat,” and decided I was going to help other people with nutrition questions. But how could I do that staying home with now, not just one, but two little people?
I went back to school and pursued a second degree in Dietetics and (finally) credentialed as a Registered Dietitian – a nationally recognized nutrition expert! I started this website and, after having three more babies and regaining my health, I’m proud to say it is ready for you!
This website is for you, mama.
