Hello I’m Tera

Nutritional Therapy Practitioner & Beautycounter Director

My name is Tera, I’m a founder and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner at Branch Collective Wellness.  I grew up in LaCanada, CA but now reside in Laguna Niguel, CA with my husband, children ages 10 and 12, husky mix, Bogey and Toothless the bearded dragon!

I have a B.S. in Animal Science from Oregon State University, M.A. in Counseling from Webster University and am Certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.  I have been a Registered Veterinarian Technician (nurse) specializing in Emergency/Critical Care for 21 years.  

After dealing with my own battles of IBS, digestive issues and food intolerances during college and later when I became pregnant with my first I became passionate about not just putting a bandaid on symptoms but finding out why they were happening.  I went through a lifestyle clean up and have shared that passion now for years with others.  I am very enthusiastic about helping people with digestive discomfort, food allergies and helping to navigate how to live a cleaner, less toxic lifestyle.  My hope is to help others by breaking what traditionally they have been taught, through a holistic approach.  I enjoy gardening, traveling, cooking for my family and spending time at the beach!

I am able to see clients virtually and in person!  I am available for both nutrition and lifestyle consulting.
