My Background

I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.

During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

Making Nutritious Foods To Stop & Savor

I’ve always been a bit of a foodie. My mom would encourage me to tinker around the kitchen as a child.  In fact, I created my first recipe when I was 5 years old.  I served up graham crackers and applesauce with a sprinkling of cinnamon to my little brothers like they were homemade nutella crepes.  Food has always been an expression of love for me.  Just ask my friends about my strawberry rhubarb pie!

Naturally, it made sense that I would focus my creativity on gluten-free and sugar-free recipes when I discovered that I was pre-diabetic and allergic to wheat.   Not to worry though, no bland or cardboard textured gluten-free food here! In place of starchy flours, I use various nut flours (such as almond flour, coconut flour) because of their added protein and fiber.  Instead of refined sugar I use either Stevia or organic agave as sweeteners given their much lower glycemic index.

In my house, food = love.  Nothing says “I dig your haircut” like cherry cupcakes, nothing says “I wanna snuggle” like smoked Gouda mac and cheese, and nothing says “I’m sorry for scratching the car” like Vietnamese ginger beef.  I cook for my family every day and thought this site would be a great way to share my love with everyone.

Take a bite.  Take a breath.  Enjoy!
