Our Mission To Support
Butterfly Holistic Nutrition + Lifestyle and Pamela’s ultimate goal is to support individuals dealing with Hashimoto’s and other autoimmune conditions who are ready to embark on a healing journey… to help clients achieve optimal health and happiness by educating and empowering them with valuable nutrition facts.
Journey Toward Nutritional Healing
Pamela's personal journey allowed her to discover the power that food and mindset play in healing and managing her disease's symptoms.
In her early 20's, Pamela experienced a long list of hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue, lowered stress response, stomach pain, and occasional hair loss.
She remained undiagnosed until her first pregnancy at the age of 34. It was then, (with the realization that a lifetime prescription of thyroid medication was necessary even after her pregnancy) that her interest turned to researching hypothyroidism further.
Finally after convincing her doctor to run an antibody test, the results showed elevated antibodies and the diagnosis was confirmed… it was Hashimoto thyroiditis.
Even through her struggle with postpartum depression and being overwhelmed with a colicky baby, Pamela remained determined. She was compelled to learn everything she possibly could about Hashimoto’s. In doing so, her true passion as an advocate for those with autoimmune conditions became evident and evolved.
She attended night classes at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition while also raising two young children, graduating as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) in 2017.
In the same year, Pamela launched her private practice based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada where she supports others struggling with autoimmune conditions.

Past Meets Present
Originally from Germany, Pamela moved to Canada in 2010, to join her soon-to-be husband. She now calls Ottawa home, enjoying life with her husband and two children.
Pamela brings valuable skills from a previous fast-paced and detail-oriented career in foreign trading in Hamburg, Germany, and later specializing in organizational management. These abilities continue to contribute to the research, organization, and management methods she employs in her current business.
In addition to her work, Pamela enjoys singing in a local chorus, dancing for exercise, gardening, and reading. All of which are conducive to a focused and grounded approach to her life’s challenges, as well as her life’s calling.
