After completing her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry, Toréa has embodied transformation and self-discovery. She’s worked at some of the leading dot-com Silicon Valley companies, has held executive positions and she used to be a professional pilot flying jets for private families & charter companies out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Her diagnosis of two debilitating autoimmune diseases brought her back to biochemistry, not only achieving full remission, but also certification as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner. During that time discovered her love of coaching and the process of transformation.
Today, Toréa is an expert coach, wilderness retreat leader and former professional pilot. She’s been a Functional Medicine Practitioner for more than a decade and she works with clients all over the world to support and help reverse chronic illness and putting symptoms into remission.
She also curates exceptional transformational experiences for clients in health, wellness and business. Her methodologies are based in functional medicine & neurolinguistic programming principles yet takes it to a whole new level with her self designed BioNeuro Blueprint™ process so clients can understand and support their entire being by addressing not only the physical, but also the emotional, spiritual and energetic bodies. She’s passionate that every client can live their lives to the full, no-holds-barred version of their dreams!!
She is the author of the Wellness Optimizing Journal, the curator of the Wellness Curiosity Collective private community and she teaches the unique 12-week Transformation Academy that can be enhanced with functional medicine and/or personalized 1-to-1 work. In addition to being an active practitioner with Mycology Psychology, she also hosts the Wildly Optimized Wellness podcast and curates several in-person retreats across the country each year.
