About our Guest:

Missy is a lover of puns, 5-year-old-knock-knock jokes, dogs, kindness, and chocolate. She was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease at 8 years old after gaining 50 pounds in a matter of months. For years, she took thyroid meds yet struggled with anxiety, hair loss, depression, gut issues, and her weight ballooned to over 275 pounds. The doctors insisted her labs were “normal” so she began seeking out her own solutions. She got a master’s degree in nutrition and even bought a health food store in an attempt to solve her nagging thyroid symptoms. Through trial and error, she discovered a few simple tests to help uncover the root cause of her problems and helped her end the exhausting Hashimoto’s battle after 28 years. She now helps women everywhere do the same!
