A holistic nutritionist, real-food lover, and unwavering optimist dedicated to helping you live your healthiest, most vibrant life.

I'm on a mission to take the guesswork out of healthy living and put the power back in your hands.

No matter what has brought you here, I'm delighted you came. I'm here to help you achieve your greatest health and feel comfortable and confident in your body so you can live a full, energetic, productive and happy life.

You see, I meet people every day just like you who are feeling stuck and looking for more than a quick fix; they’re looking for solutions that that fit seamlessly into their busy lives and will serve them for the long haul.

And guess what? That was me fifteen years ago, too. I endured my own suffering and battled with chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, sugar addiction, brain fog, and worst of all, I listened to my inner critique and shamed myself every day of the week. 

So don't worry, I get it. Every one of us has a story. The good news is we don't have to let our stories define us if we don't want to. You can learn how to take your power back and create a new story - if you choose.

As a holistic nutritionist with over 10 years experience coaching thousands of women (and men!) on their health, I've seen everything from gut-wrenching confusion about food (quite literally), to unbudging waistlines, and lives burdened by constant nagging symptoms.

Which is why my intention is to share with you how to take your health into your own hands, to nourish your body, and optimize your wellbeing… all to inspire you to become the driver of your own wellness journey.

I'm in this to make a difference; to help you build a healthy lifestyle that not only serves you, but one that you truly love.

So my friend, are you ready to reclaim your power over your health so you can stop waking up feeling only 'okay' and start feeling amazing every day?

You can start where you are, right now.

All you have to do is take the first step...

Seven Random Things about me


On a more personal note, here are seven things about me that might surprise you.

  1. I’m not ‘perfect’ with my diet and I don't think it's realistic for anyone to deprive themselves of the human experience of indulging every now and again (indulgence is different than over-indulgence!!). I love indulging in the occasional treat... my vice is chocolate!

  2. I have a history of over-committing myself and then feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Now I’m quick to notice this in my clients and I love helping them come up with plans that are simple and manageable, yet still highly effective.

  3. I grew up on a farm. My childhood summer days were spent in the garden harvesting veggies, or selling fresh corn by the baker's dozen in the farm stand. This is largely where my deep rooted appreciation for the simplicities of food stems from. Although our family farm is no longer, I'm a strong advocate for supporting small-scale farms not just for the huge nutritional benefits, but also to support the community and local agriculture.

  4. I'm a terrible recipe-follower! Most nights, I jam out to tunes in my kitchen and throw together whatever I have in my crisper. I understand not everyone operates like this, but when you grow up on a farm I think you get used to getting creative with whatever you have on hand.

  5. I believe life is meant to be fun and enjoyable - we just have to allow it to be! Healthy living doesn't have to feel like a chore, contrary to the rap it gets. I want you to experience transformational changes and enjoy the process along the way.

  6. I have a serious love-affair with Mama Earth. I'm a recycling, composting, eco-conscious freak. Living in harmony with nature is my jam, be it picking up trash I find when I go for a walk, grocery shopping with my reusable bags, cleaning my home with biodegradable products, or lathering up with a lotion that's free of chemicals. I believe we can all do our part to make this planet a cleaner place, and live a healthier life because of it.

  7. Most days you can find me and my husband chasing our passions (and our dog) at our home on the coast of Maine, or exploring the great outdoors in the White Mountains at our Airbnb rental. Check it out here!

That's me in a nutshell! Thank you for reading my story - I'm so glad to be connected to you! Click here if you're ready to book a complementary mini-session, and let's dig in!
