Nutrition & Holistic Health Counseling
Health Coach and Personal Chef
There are no quick fixes to achieving optimal health. Most diets are created for the masses, a one size fits all approach. While these fad diets may work in the short term, results are temporary. I believe the key to longterm success is changing habits that can start a chain reaction that leads to positive, lifestyle changes that ripple throughout your life.
Together we will identify what needs to be changed, one step at a time. Results can only happen with change. The first step can be overwhelming but I will be there to support and guide you. With support and accountability, anything is possible. Together, we will create healthy habits that are easily integrated into your life. I stand by my clients every step of the way in creating-long term, sustainable, and meaningful change.
Whether your goals are to lose weight, include more nourishing and whole foods into your diet, increase your energy and vitality, reduce stress or introduce activity into your weekly regimen, we will work together to find out what habits and lifestyle decisions will best serve you.
The only plan that will work for you is one that is customized based on your individual needs.
As a working mother of three, I always struggled with trying to juggle all my responsibilities and also take care of myself. Ultimately, my family and work responsibilities came first and my health suffered. For many years I struggled with hypoglycemia, weight, and digestive issues and that lead me to dig deeper and learn more about taking control of my health when my doctor’s couldn’t help me.
After many years of working in the health food Industry as an entrepreneur and sales representative I decided to follow my dream and pursue a career where I can help others realize their health & wellness goals.
Cooking is another passion of mine! I hold healthy cooking classes where I share tips, technique and recipes that will transform everyday meals. We not only talk about real food as nourishment and as a remedy for many chronic illnesses, we also make amazing creations that are simple, yummy and packed with vitamins and nutrients!
I am in the in-house nutritional counselor at Sportsite Health & Racquet Club and Centerville Yoga. I also have a partnership with the catering department at Whole Foods Market to support them with their catering needs.
