Personalized Nutrition Coaching

Peak Performance
& Optimal Health

We’ve all heard the saying “you are what you eat.” As an experienced, registered dietitian, I take that saying one step further and add “what you eat affects what you can do.” Because it’s true. Not only does what we eat affect our body composition, but food is our fuel and how we perform — what we can do — is directly related to what we put into our bodies.

What To Expect

My Process and Your Outcomes

Meeting 1

Our work together starts with a nutrition intake and analysis and also an in-depth discussion about any issues you are having, your current daily habits, what you want to achieve and what your time frame is. If you need lab work, we’ll discuss and coordinate that as well.

We’ll explore your strengths and weaknesses, and how you want to work together, as in schedules, timing and remote versus in-person. My main goal in this first session is to get a better understanding of you and your goals and to meet you where you are right now.

Going Forward

Together we will create an individualized game plan for your nutrition, supplements, activity and more to help you reach your long-term goals a little bit each day.

You'll have access to an online portal where you can communicate with me and easily track things like food, sleep and energy levels. We'll set up a time to chat weekly, and I'm always on call for questions and support.

First and foremost, after working together, you will have accomplished or be on your way to accomplishing your primary goals, such as weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, performance improvement, better sleep and more.

But beyond that, you will gain a deep, life-changing understanding of your body, nutrition and overall wellness. You will look at health from a whole-body, whole-food perspective that can help you look forward to a lifetime of good habits and health. You’ll also gain confidence in your ability to make smart lifestyle choices for the rest of your life.

In most cases, accomplishing a life goal isn't easy. But it will be fun, we will celebrate successes, and it will change your life.
