18 years into a career focused largely in Massage Therapy & body work, I decided to add a new focus to help my clients heal through proper Nutrition. I found early results extremely rewarding which provided the ambition to go back to school and expand my ability to help others.
In 2016, I completed my two-year certification as a Nutrition Consultant through Bauman College in the USA. I use whole food nutrition to help people feel their best and achieve their goals. Healthy isn’t being “skinny”, its having more energy, fueling your body to feel your best and taking care of the body you were blessed with.
I believe in making your nutrition program a new healthy lifestyle not a diet. No more yo-yo dieting and poor relationships with food; instead we work together to ensure long-term, rewarding results.
I coach clients to build a healthy relationship with food and making the connection between emotion and mind as to “why” we have the eating behaviours we do. I have a genuine passion to help others create the Best Version of themselves through body work, exercise, and Nutrition; creating overall health. .
I come from a family history of obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart conditions. We can’t control our genes but we can control how we feed them. This helped me decide to obtain a proper education as a Nutrition Consultant to create the best lifestyle & body to fight off these genes/conditions. Due to my family history, having a mother conquer cancer 3 times and wanting to raise my children healthy, I wanted to have the best knowledge possible to help my family and others with Nutrition.
I live a crazy busy life raising a family with 3 young kids, husband, farm life and working full-time to better others. I want my children to have the knowledge on what Healthy looks & feels like and how to fuel their bodies.
I have successfully worked with a variety of people ranging from family health, doctors, sport teams, teens, elderly, cancer clients, naturopaths, fitness trainers, and with dieticians.
