Lauren's Journey: "The sessions were really eye opening, and really showed me ways to focus on the little things in life that I could make changes instead of having to change everything about everything I do every single day... I have a better outlook when I Iook at food. When I look at what I'm making for my family, when I look at meals, when I go to the grocery store and when I shop, I am more aware of what I'm buying and I think more about the ingredients of the food, I think more about the preparation of the food. I look for ways to substitute... I've found ways to drink more water... I do have a huge list of recipes... I would definitely put this to women who work full time, moms that have full time jobs outside the house that need some sort of way to reduce their stress through time management, and changing the little things in your life..."

Shannon's Journey: "I was living on pizza and cereal... I wanted to feel better, and healthier and have more energy, and feel better about myself... I felt like you understood where I was coming from and the struggles that I had and the reason behind why I was eating the way I was out of convenience and habit Then you didn't try to revamp everything I ever ate...it was nice that I could slowly work towards the changes I wanted to make without doing anything drastic that I would have abandoned. .... Total revamp of how I look at life, and how I look at food, and where I find my peace and joy. I don't crave food anymore,so foods more about eating for what I need and what feels good, which is totally NEW! I've always lived,"I'm craving pizza," so I have pizza. "I'm craving Mexican," so I have Mexican. The food drove the decisions, and NOW the overall goal of BEING HEALTHY is what drives the decisions. I moved to Florida. I felt like I was free to make my own decisions, and take care of my own life. I lost 51 pounds. I sleep better. I have more energy. My joints don't hurt. (I would recommend this program to) people who are stuck.... anyone is struggling with how to do enough nutritionally, and the right portions, and how to do it in day today life. I appreciate you helping to get me where I am healthy and happy again!"
Christina's Journey "I was not really knowing what direction to go. I was hoping to find different ways to exercise, and be encouraged... to have a mentor and someone to have my back, and check on the diet I was eating, and give me suggestions as to different ways to modify, and different ideas of how to go about getting my meal planning together. I really had a great time! You are so nice and comfortable. I felt an immediate friendship with you. I have found a better way to motivate myself... the best ways to get my nutrition. I think this is for everybody, from healthy people..to the beginner..to the middle: who know what to do, but need the kick to do it! Your support, and your kindness, and the way you were willing to find answers to my questions, or even things I hadn't thought of... I just really recommend you to anyone!"

Has everyday life gotten in the way of your health and well-being? Are you stuck doubting yourself, wondering if real change is really possible for you?
I get it!
My story began a few years ago, I was living in Los Angeles and found myself stuck in the daily grind. I was working 40-70 hours a week as a nanny, and although I loved the little ones, I was overwhelmed, and completely stressed out.
I became engaged, and realized how uncomfortable I was in my own skin. My now husband traveled for work and we spent the majority of our engagement apart. This give me the time and space to really take a look at myself. I began to say yes to me, started to create some boundaries around work/home life, started incorporating more empowering movement like yoga and hiking, and spent time with friends and loved ones.
As the daughter of a home economics teacher (who cooked everything with a stick of butter and a can of cream of something) and a pastry chef father, I quickly realized that eating this way was no longer working for me. I started making small shifts around food, adding in more plant based, unprocessed foods. In just a couple months I lost 25 lbs and gained so much more. More energy. More excitement. More curiosity. What had I done to feel this good, and how could I help other women feel this same sense of empowerment?
That is what led me to study Holistic Health and Nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. While at IIN, I studied over 100 dietary theories, and lifestyle management techniques, from the world's top health and wellness experts. Bringing this knowledge along with my own wellness journey has enabled my coaching practice to completely transform lives! We have worked together on a range goals from weight loss, stress reduction and menu planning to establishing sustainable self-care practices and re-balancing hormones... A few of my clients have even brought home happy, healthy babies after infertility issues and loss, which is so dear to my heart.
My husband and I lost our first child, Audrianna, a couple hours after her birth. The outpouring of love, and support, that we received after loss, and the depth of love and sense purpose I uncovered, is what motivates my journey and practice. Her presence in my life has challenged me, unearthed me, and inspired me to use this gift of life, and to use all the love I have within me, as I support other women on their wellness journey's. If you are ready to create lifelong sustainable change, I would love to support you in your journey to wellness!
As Seen In:
I had the privilege of studying under experts such as:
- Walter Willett, MD: Chair of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health
Chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard’s School of Public Health as well as the author of Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating.
- Andrew Weil, MD: Director of Integrative Medicine, University of Arizona
A best-selling author whose books include: Spontaneous Healing and Eight Weeks to Optimal Health. Dr. Weil is a Harvard Medical School graduate and world-renowned expert on medicinal herbs, mind-body interactions and healing systems. He also started the Integrative Medicine program at the University of Arizona.
- Deepak Chopra: World leader in the field of mind-body medicine
A holistic healer and author of more than 50 books translated into over 35 languages. Deepak is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and one of Time Magazine’s “Top 100 heroes and icons of the century” and “the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.”
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health. I am so excited to join with you on your journey to wellness!
