I have been a nutritionist for 17 years, specializing in plant-based prevention and reversal of disease. I am a certified lifestyle medicine practitioner through the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and am uniquely educated in how lifestyle impacts health. As a certified life coach through The Life Coach School, I am trained to work on any problem. My knowledge in nutrition and lifestyle medicine comes together with my training as a life coach to help my clients not only make the very best changes in their lives, but also learn to manage their minds so that these changes become integrated seamlessly into their lives.
why I do what i do
“My dream is to help others learn how to eat to live a life of health and wellness instead of chronic disease and discomfort.”
As a mom of young kids, I felt mom-like and not in a good way. I was bursting out of my jeans. But worse than that, I felt too big for my skin.
One day I noticed that my seatbelt was cutting into my stomach. That was a first.
I thought, I’m a dietitian, I know better. I felt ashamed because I was preaching healthy eating, but I wasn’t always eating healthy.
I was on the “one is never enough” plan and it showed on my body.
I remember the phone call from my doctor’s office--bad labs. I thought, what am I doing? I know better.
Then the shame fell away and I had a new feeling, conviction.
I decided I was going to take care of myself and I started following my E.A.S.E. plan (which now I share with my clients).
E: eat greens
A: add fiber and color
S: subtract processed foods
E: exercise my body, exercise my voice and work on my mindset
I felt healthier. No longer exhausted. I didn’t shove my words down with food anymore. I said what I was thinking instead of snacking. Now I weigh 102 lbs. My weight has stayed the same for over 10 years. Jeans slide on with no effort (except those double zeros!). I no longer fear the seatbelt.
Now I help others do the same.
