I help busy, successful women feel fit, develop mindful eating + fitness habits, and make healthy lifestyle changes to support
long-term weight loss and vibrant health.
I haven’t always been an active, healthy person. The pressure and demands of my thriving travel & event planning career and my lack of understanding of healthy eating meant I spent most of my adult life overweight and exhausted.
Before discovering the power of mindful eating and the importance of clean, nutritious food, I tried every diet out there. I ate a vegan diet and saw some success, but was still overweight. So I tried Weight Watchers, My Fitness Pal, and even reintroduced meat to try the popular low carb, high fat Keto trend.
Until I discovered a holistic approach that helped me shed over 70 pounds … and keep it off for good.
After graduating a in-depth Integrative Nutrition Certification program, I now coach women just like you who want the freedom and energy that comes from reaching a healthy weight and feeling good about what you put in your body in a
sustainable and achievable framework.
I achieved the success I had only dreamed of when I learned how to slow down and make time for healthy, conscious eating and regular exercise.
When I finally learned how to ditch the diet and embrace a holistic approach to my health, I started seeing real, permanent change.
Let’s be clear: Being overweight is not a crime and the number on the scale does not mean you are less valuable as a person.
But when I was overweight, I did experience many challenges, both to my health and self-esteem. I found myself unable to engage in certain activities and was exhausted by my workload and personal responsibilities.
I wasn’t thriving.
I wanted to enjoy my life and fully participate. Being overweight was holding me back from living life as the fit, vibrant, joyful person I wanted to be… and I knew that couldn’t be my story.
Things changed for me once I understood the importance of mindful eating and clean, whole food nutrition.
I didn’t have to trade the exhaustion of being overweight for the exhaustion of counting calories and following a strict, unsustainable diet.
Eat the right foods that will nourish your body and make you feel good without stress
Trust yourself to know when you are hungry instead of relying on a clock, social setting, points or calorie counting to dictate when, what and how you eat
Move your body daily in ways that are enjoyable instead of forcing yourself to follow a specific workout plan that does not fit your fitness personality
Do all of this and lose weight with a new healthy mindset & strong habits
I have traveled throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Central America and the Caribbean. I even moved to a remote island off the coast of Panama and stayed for 4 years...loved every day living near the beach.
Chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and anything ginger are my all time favorites.
I make a delicious gluten free, vegan
dark chocolate chip cookie!
I never met a stranger and I can talk for hours.
BUT I crave and enjoy at least two hours everyday to be alone and recharge or to engage in introspection...my healthy way to befriend myself and connect with my thoughts and feelings.
Yes, I am a young grandmother to two beautiful grandchildren.
I often have people ask me,
"What do you have your grandchildren call you?"
I proudly say Grandma!
I started by simplifying my diet and eliminating what didn't serve me. Then I took a good look at things causing stress to my body and life and created simple habits & routines that supported how I wanted to feel.
I feel lighter, happier, and my health & energy
