I’m a health and nutrition coach with over a decade of experience in teaching and coaching. I’m fascinated by the powerful impact lifestyle and nutrition choices have on our health. They can influence and shape us on every level of our being: physically, emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually.
As a certified functional nutrition coach my approach combines natural living and newest scientific insights. While I love to nerd-out about nutrition, physiology, gut microbes, genomics and such topics, I always bring it back to a holistic point of view and to practical application. Food can be pleasure, prevention, and medicine at the same time.
But there is no one diet that fits everyone, because we are all unique. Finding the right way to eat for you personally can maximize your health and well-being.
Are you ready to improve your health through better nutrition and lifestyle choices?
Are you tired of being tired all the time? Do you want to get rid of digestive problems, blood sugar issues, improve your energy levels, strengthen your immune system, and feel better overall?
If you’re interested in personal coaching you can get in touch here and book a free 15-minute session to see if we’re a good fit for working together.
