It's Thanksgiving 2011 and I just stepped on the scale, after the big family meal, in full clothes and shoes. Ridiculous, right? I mean, why wouldn't I wait until the next morning, before eating and getting dressed? Because I wanted to see the absolute worst. I was looking to lose weight, fed up with how I felt in my body and I wanted to know where I was starting from, the worst case, the biggest I had ever been. I guess I thought if I can handle what it says after eating and fully clothed, then I can handle anything. I was trying to scare myself into action. I wanted to see a high number so that I would finally do something and make some changes. I was trying to kick my butt into gear. And actually I had just come off a 10 day raw vegan diet, as an experiment, so I was already trying. But I needed motivation to keep going, not necessarily raw, but keep eating healthy, super healthy. Since then, I have been on a plant-based, mostly gluten-free diet. Right now, I am 20 lbs. lighter than that day. I lost all the weight in the first year, and have been able to keep it off to this day. I don't see myself ever getting out of control again. Talk about sustainability!

My transformation led me to want to help others find their way. Not go on a diet, but change their eating habits as well as habits of thought around food, lifestyle and personal growth. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge and experience, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
