Nutritionist. Chef. Food Lover.
Love Food. Live Well. These are words I live by every day, helping to create the foundation of my food philosophy: shop smart, cook simply, enjoy eating and feel great. As an experienced nutritionist and trained chef, I believe the path toward optimal well-being begins when the body is properly nourished.
Making wholesome choices and engaging in every day food preparation is essential for achieving healthy lifestyle goals. Passionate about food and cooking (and eating), I strive to educate and inspire others to improve their eating habits through food talks and cooking demonstrations.
I’ve spent much of my career as an educator and consultant in the workplace wellness industry, managing employee programs, delivering seminars, and supporting individuals as they strive to improve their personal state of health.
With unique training in health supportive cooking and specialized diets, I'm able to customize presentation topics and coaching programs to best suit the needs and interests of my clients.

I practice stress-management in the kitchen!
My professional drive comes from the commitment to keep fit as a runner and practice mindfulness for staying focused and present. As a working mom of two munchkins, ages 6 and 4, Iife is definitely busy, so I continually strive to nurture it all. Luckily the kitchen is my 'happy place', so even on my day off I'm usually in there, exploring my true creative outlet and best form of stress-management.
I now offer all sessions exclusively through online platforms. This allows to me reach any and all persons, no matter the size of the group and from wherever they may call work or home these days. We can connect instantly and get started loving food and living well, together!
