I was tired, stretched waaay too thin, life was hectic and I was ready to crack at any moment.

But sometimes we don’t have the luxury to be weak.

I’ve always been a huge nutrition nerd. I wasted years reading boring books, blogs written by questionable people or taking yet another course to learn what healthy eating really meant. It took diagnosis of “infertility” for me to finally see a Functional Nutritionist. I had tried almost everything and this was my last resort.

After 3 months following her advice to the ‘T’… I got pregnant.

I’d already paid thousands to fertility specialists, wasted countless hours on appointments and had been an emotional wreck. But for a fraction of the price plus total commitment on my part I got what I so badly wanted.

Because of this profound experience, I went back to school to get my Master’s Degree. I wanted to help others who are pulling their hair out trying to reach a goal that is equally important to them.

Admit it…

You’re so sick of trendy, dull and sooo-played diet programs that it’s easier to stay trapped where you are.

If only someone would light a 🔥fire under your a$$…

Don’t feel frustrated. There’s a reason for this.

To see those ridiculously dramatic results you need a program that’s working for you.

Your secret desires ~ Your “embarrassing” excuses.

Plus clear steps, “on-your ass” accountability/motivation and personal guidance that crowds out any excuses.

You deserve a Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Program designed for you.

I’ll remove the guesswork → you’ll get a very specific plan that supports your goals.

What I do

I listen - create - simplify - push you and make you accountable.

I’m like a coach in your back pocket.

The more I know about you, the quicker and more dramatic the results can be.

Especially because your needs are different than everyone else’s.

So let’s get cozy….

After we chat, laugh (humor is included- no charge) and know exactly what you’re looking for (and what obstacles are in your way) I create simple, actionable steps for you to take. 

Then you follow-up ~ I’ll tweak your program as we move along.

And be by your side to push you through.

Your journey may be challenging and will be intense.

Trust the process….

You bring the Zeal ~ I’ll bring the rest.

Who it's For

I created this space with overworked heroes in mind:  Cops, Veterans, Active Duty, Firefighters, ER staff and Corrections. This is a grossly underserved community that have unique demands putting their health and lives at risk (see stats below).  

 Anyone who needs help is welcome here.

Why it's Different

I look at you as an individual: your history, struggles, desires and roadblocks. Like a Detective, I go in deep and look for clues that may be hindering your goals. 

How it Works

You contact me. We talk for 15 minutes and see if we're a good fit. When we work together, I do a nutritional analysis and look at your health history.

If you’re working with a Physician, I connect with them and review your files and healthy history - I play well with Physicians.

If you’re not, we go even deeper into your goals, any perceived roadblocks or challenges and what YOU need to succeed.

From there:

I set you up with a Tailor-Made Nutrition and Lifestyle Plan including very specific resources like a short daily/weekly check-lists, tools to support you in areas you’re struggling with or a S.M.A.R.T. plan (well-established tool that you can use to plan and achieve your goals).

I’m also a whiz at finding solutions to problems.

I love listening - because that’s where the answer lies.

You will build new habits - this is how you make permanent changes. I will make these changes achievable for you. I want you to get so f@cking excited that your fevered determination far exceeds your unworthy excuses.

What I'm Not

I'm not a Doctor and DO NOT provide medical advice.  Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

What to do Next

Feel free to contact me and see if we're a good fit. Or just keep cruising around my website. You may find answers here.

My Why

I created this space with a very specific purpose: to help cops, firefighters and military stay exceedingly strong.  Every day we lose members of our First Responder family on the front line.  I have personally felt this loss. These enemies also take a different form on the inside: lack of focus, depression, fatigue, heart disease, weight gain and sleep deprivation.  

Take a look at these statistics:

It has been proven over and over that shift-work and disruption in sleep rhythm is devastating to your psychological and physical health. It has even been officially classified as a probable cancer risk.

Shiftwork DOES influence your food choices (and not for the better)

In 2016, 14% of all on-duty deaths for Police Officers were related to heart-attack alone.

In 2012, a study was released that showed 40% Police Officers have a real sleep disorder.

In 2015, a study was released that showed almost 1/3 of  Police Officers studied have Metabolic Syndrome (which means a much higher risk for heart disease, stroke and other health issues). 

In 2016, 108 Police Officers took their own life.

In 2016, 20 military veterans took their own lives EVERY SINGLE DAY.

In 2015, 59% of Firefighter on-duty deaths were due to stress/medical.

In 2016, 1027 Firefighters completed a survey about behavioral health. Almost half of them reported that they have considered suicide in the past. Firefigher/EMS mental stress and PTSD is growing.

In 2015, a 5 year study was completed that showed Firefighter have a MUCH higher rate of cancer.

It starts with you.
