My Services


I am a Certified Nutrition & Wellness Consultant, but you can think of me as a Nutrition "Personal Trainer”.  My counseling techniques employ behavioral changes that are customized to your needs based on my whole food-plant based nutrition knowledge.  My job as your health coach is to provide you with the best nutritional guidance, so that you will be able to make better informed food decisions. With my guidance, your journey to a healthy lifestyle will be attained through continually learning about the alternative choices available to you. 

You will be forming new healthier habits that will soon become a part of your daily life.  I will strive to guide you on your healthy lifestyle journey by emphasizing the mind-body-spirit aspects of the WFPBD, and how incorporating them can strengthen your self happiness.

My goal is to help you embrace good healthy nutrition so you can age gracefully, with much more energy, confidence and peace!

My recommendation for my clients is to strive for a 90% WFPB meal plan.  My recipes and meal plans and will show how this can be accomplished to accommodate any lifestyle. Busy working families, empty nesters, active seniors and anyone seeking natural healthy nutritional advice can benefit from my sessions.
