My Training

My passion for helping others began years ago when I pursued a Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Case Western Reserve University. After falling in love with this field and how it improved my ability to help others change their lives, I decided to then pursue a Master's of Science in Human Nutrition from Arizona State University

After earning my BS and MS, I realized I needed one final piece in my education to be able to work with clients in a one-on-one setting. This is when I discovered the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and earned the certification as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (INHC). 

At this point, I felt I finally had all of the necessary pieces to start my business and help others achieve the lifestyle they have always wanted. At the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories such as– Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between. 

This program allowed me to expand my knowledge of Nutrition beyond what is taught in a university setting. I feel that being well-versed on modern dietary approaches in addition to what is recommended by the USDA is the best way to accommodate the needs of each unique individual client. You are all unique and bio-individual and a "one-size-fits-all" approaches simply do not work for health and nutrition!

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients 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 relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
