MY PHILOSOPHY

Here’s the thing. Life is short. How can we make it as full as possible? In my opinion, food and movement can and should be some of life’s sweetest pleasures. I help my clients find a healthy balance of eating and moving so they can THR!VE and live a full life that is rich in joy.

My approach to nutrition is not one size fits all. I don’t believe in quick fixes or fads. Instead, I offer an individualized approach to food that is rooted in science and takes into account everyone’s unique relationship to food and exercise, biochemistry, and particular lifestyle challenges. I want to know YOU so I can be your partner on this journey.

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) with over 10 years of experience coaching people through their health and wellness journeys. But guess what? I’m also a real human being: I’m a mom, a spouse, a working professional, and I’m trying to balance it all — just like you! I don’t have it all figured out, but I’m excited to share my knowledge with you.

EAT
EAT
I love all the foods! I believe that nearly all food can be incorporated into a healthy diet — in my world, no food is “good” or “bad,” and I eat and drink almost everything (ok, except garlic — too much hurts my stomach). In our family, we eat a mix of plant-based meals and animal proteins. It’s also important for me to know where my food comes from — in fact, my husband hunts and cooks the majority of our meat, and we have an urban “farm” that yields plenty of fresh produce year round.
MOVE
MOVE
Movement, exercise, physical activity — call it what you want. Do it how you want. I was formerly a dancer and competitive triathlete, but these days I love group fitness classes, running, yoga, and just about any outdoor activity. I don’t waste my time with exercise that I don’t enjoy, and you shouldn’t either! Most weeks I aim to get a mix of endurance, cardio, strength training, flexibility, and low impact movement. I’ve continued building strength and fitness as I move into my mid-30s — even after raising two kids. It is possible, trust me! I believe that anyone — no matter their age, background, or present circumstances — can be an athlete.
THR!VE
THR!VE
I thrive in creativity. I thrive when I’m around people and cooking for people I love. I thrive in exploring new places. I thrive when I feel at home. I look forward to the simple things in life just as much as the big stuff — farmers market season, long daylight hours, fresh air, the smell of the sea, my morning cup of coffee with cream (yes, real full fat cream!), decorating for the holidays, snuggles and giggles with my two kids, and traveling the world with my love. I don’t feel like I am thriving every single day — like any journey, there are ups and downs. But I do believe that being able to EAT well and MOVE often (and in the ways that feel good to you) will enable us all to THR!VE!
