Nutrition and the tools connected to how we eat can affect every aspect of our lives—not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. I am truly grateful to share my knowledge and whole body approach with the individual clients, as well as the nutritional businesses that support them. My goal is to reinvigorate your sense of self and purpose, explore where you’re at and where you would like to go.
I work with individuals to re-establish their relationship with food, supported by scientific evidence and a compassionate approach.
I consult with businesses to evaluate their offerings and facilitate strategic enhancements that will optimize patient and client servicing.
My enjoyment of both the science and the emotion of nutrition propelled me to become a subject matter expert in my field, and I welcome the opportunity to share my skill and passion with others.
