2023 – after 6 months of chemo
Hi, I’m Caitlin
Welcome! I’m a dietitian and cancer coach.
Have you been diagnosed with cancer?
Or maybe you’re interested in learning more about food sensitivity testing.
Either way — you’re in the right place.
In 2022, I was given the life-changing diagnosis of stage 3b, ER+/PR+ Her2- lobular breast cancer.
It rocked my world.
Can you can relate?
I’ve struggled with overwhelm and anxiety about my diagnosis. I’ve put pressure on myself to “eat perfectly” so the cancer “doesn’t come back.”
I’ve felt helpless after being told nothing I did, outside of conventional cancer treatment, was helpful.
I’ve longed for the carefree life I had before my diagnosis.
I’ve doubted my own intuition and instead, listened to the “experts’ rules” about how to treat my breast cancer.
Thankfully, I didn’t give up on my quest to feel more empowered and take back some control over my own cancer journey.
I’ve found an approach to thriving with breast cancer and it is life changing.
This approach has transformed not only me, but also my practice as a dietitian-nutritionist.
I want to help you learn how to thrive after your cancer diagnosis.
As a child, I was always interested in nutrition. Growing up, I had asthma, allergies, digestive issues, and I was sick more than my friends.
Through trial and error, my mother helped me discover which foods triggered some of my conditions. It fascinated me to know that food had such power over how we felt.
I guess it was destiny that I decided to become a dietitian-nutritionist.
After college graduation, I worked in Japan for 2 years and then worked in corporate America before deciding to pursue my passion and get my masters in nutrition.
But being trained as a dietitian-nutritionist did not equip me to deal with the psychological aspects of a stage 3 breast cancer diagnosis.
I felt Anxious. Helpless. Mad. Confused.
Then I started taking action.
If my conventional doctors were telling me there was nothing to do besides traditional cancer treatment, I was going to prove that there WERE things to do to increase my chances of a full recovery.
So I dove head first into cancer healing research, PUBMED, podcasts, books, papers, websites and courses.
I learned healing factors that other cancer thrivers used on their cancer journey — giving themselves the best chance at living a long, healthy life.
Then I found the empowerment I had been searching for that helped me reclaim my body.
It took away the fear and replaced it with coming alive to what’s possible in my life and my health.
I’ve learned what to prioritize when it comes to healing from cancer.
Yes, I pursued conventional medicine for breast cancer treatment — surgery, chemo and radiation felt like the right options for me at the time.
But I ALSO layered in holistic treatments and significant lifestyle changes on top of the traditional things I did.
This helped me recover faster and with fewer side effects that others typically experience going through the same thing.
I learned how to thrive in spite of having a cancer diagnosis.
I’m here to offer you radical hope as your cancer coach.

Now It’s Your Turn
Let’s tap into supporting your body and living your best life after your diagnosis.
Caitlin’s Education & Training
I lived, studied, and worked overseas in Europe and Asia for several years. Then after a decade in corporate America, I felt the urge to pursue a career in health and nutrition. So I went back to school to earn a masters in nutrition.
After graduation, I completed a full time, nine month dietetic internship. During my internship, I counseled hundreds of patients with conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, diabetes, overweight, obesity, and patients in the ICU.
After becoming a registered dietitian-nutritionist, I completed four additional world-class holistic trainings for healthcare practitioners.
Then, after 1 year of conventional breast cancer treatment along with holistic practices to help me heal, I’m feeling more full of life than I ever have!
I enjoy helping those who are ready to tap in to their inner wisdom so they can heal.

I love being able to make a difference in people’s lives.
As a cancer coach, I help clients live a healthy and meaningful life. My passion is to help clients thrive beyond the diagnosis – as I myself discovered what works best for my health and well-being.
There is a way for you, too.
Let me help you find your way, so you too can experience life as it is meant to be – feeling as good as possible during and after your cancer treatment. Free to love yourself and your life.
Caitlin Outside of Work
When I am not helping clients make lasting changes in their health, I enjoy spending time with my husband and being a mother to our two active daughters.
I love cooking, painting (paint-by-number — I’m no artist!), spending time with family and friends, traveling, taking long walks, meditating, volunteering with my family, reading nutrition books, and providing resources that educate and uplift.
