NUTRITION

ABOUT ME

As a NASM Certified Nutrition Coach, food fanatic, farmers’ daughter, and former farmers’ market manager, you can say I’m kind of obsessed with how we as humans interact with food.

Whether you are looking for recipes and healthy eatings guidance, a beginner’s guide to nutrition labels, or are in need of a complete lifestyle change, let’s talk.

I create programs unique for each client, and never will one person have the same protocols as another. Even two people with the same goals will have different regimens simply because all of our bodies, likes and dislikes, and budgets are different!
