Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to livE
HEALTH IS WEALTH
Hello and welcome to my site! As a Registered Dietitian, Health Coach, and Fitness Instructor, I have an extreme passion for nutrition and exercise because of the positive effects they have on my mind, body, and spirit. I believe that taking care of your body is the key to a happy life, not just for physical health, but mental health too. I have been working in the health and fitness industry for over 19 years, and nothing is more rewarding to me than helping people live happier, healthier lives!
Like most Dietitians, nutrition has always been at the top of my priority list. Then after watching my husband get diagnosed with CNS Lymphoma and battle through years of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant in 2010, it really solidified my belief on health being absolutely essential to quality of life. We don't realize how important our health is until it is taken away. Even though we can't control everything that happens to our bodies, we CAN control our food and lifestyle choices.
I believe in finding balance, and eating whole food based nutrition. My job as a Dietitian is to educate on proper nutrition, and to help you meet your personal health goals without feeling deprived. With the right education and commitment, anyone can commit to a healthy lifestyle! You are WORTH it!
I am a firm believer in the 80/20 rule: fuel your body with great nutrition MOST of the time, and allow yourself to enjoy your favorite foods on occasion. Take some time to seek out the foods you love and find ways to recreate your meals with healthier clean ingredients. I have a sweet tooth, so I like to bake sweet treats with natural clean ingredients. Check out my favorite "go-to" recipes!
