My Story


my story

As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands.  

I spent a lifetime loving to eat. I grew up on fried foods and refined sugars. I was unhealthy but didn’t realize it. Everyone around me was the same. With heart disease, diabetes and cancer in my family history, IBS( irritable bowel syndrome) headaches, inflammation, pregnancy loss and anxiety in my own life- I had to make a change.

After removing grains and legumes from my own diet my body began to heal itself daily. Most all my symptoms are gone and I owe it all to knowledge of food and lifestyle changes.  

I have spent the last 15 years managing and counselling in a crisis center. Health coaching and wellness go hand and hand with many years of experience. My goal is to help others. I work to change lifestyles, not diets. I customize each session for my clients to fit their individual needs. What works for one doesn’t work for all. There are hundreds of diets, let me help you make a lifestyle difference you can not just see but can feel.




I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between. 

I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including: 

  • Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
  • Deepak Chopra, MD World Leader in Mind-Body Medicine, Director of Education at The Chopra Center, Bestselling Author
  • David Katz, MD, MPH, Authority on Preventive Medicine and Weight Management, Director of the Yale Prevention Research Center
  • Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, Chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard’s School of Public Health and Bestselling Author
  • Andrew Weil, MD, Bestselling Author and Expert on Integrative Medicine and Mind-Body Interactions
  • Gabrielle Bernstein, Motivational Speaker, Life Coach, Bestselling Author
  • Susan Blum, MD, MPH, Functional Medicine Doctor, Founder of Blum Center for Health

  • Mark Bittman, New York Times Columnist, Bestselling Author

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with clients like you to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.

Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationship as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
