About Jessica


Hello there!  My name is Jessica.  Thank you for dropping in.

I was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune condition, in July 2016 after persistently advocating for myself for several years.  I’m now transitioning to a healing diet, Fall 2016.  My journey continues here, on my new Small Kitchen Big Love blog www.smallkitchenbiglove.com  (Excited!)

I’m on a journey to heal and put myself in remission using the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) as my nutritional manual, specifically helped my Mickey Trescott’s book, among other resources.  I also take medication for my disease, and am curious to see if I can slowly reduce the dosage as my body heals.

I am a wife to my one true love, a mom to four little blessings, and a daughter to an unconditionally-loving mom diagnosed with Hashimoto’s only a day apart from each other.

I love sunsets, coconut milk, and the ocean, preferably all together at once.  I am water.  My husband is fire…a perfect balance placed together by God.

Jessica has a Bachelor of Science in Therapeutic Recreation and is a Certified Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
