Your Personal Program

Step 1


Let’s discuss your goals and how, together, we can get your there.

Step 2


Together we’ll move strategically through your personal program created specifically for you, your challenges and your goals.

Step 3


Spend less time worrying about your goals and more time achieving them.



I’ve met so many people who are frustrated that they can’t lose weight, have no energy, and can’t move the way they used to.  They have the aches, and illnesses that we associate with “normal” aging.  They’ve tried diets that don’t work, have taken the newest supplement that’s all the rage and still feel tired and uncomfortable in their own bodies.


This does not have to be you!


Unfortunately, we’ve all been doing the wrong things.  You see, diets don’t work because you are uniquely you.  You have your own DNA, genes, and culture.  We all eat different food and move in different ways for different lengths of time.  We have different bone structure and size, body shape and weight.


What this means is that your body processes, digests, absorbs, and uses food and nutrients differently than anyone else.


So, you see, a diet that works for your friend or cousin probably won’t work for you.


I’ve been there, I understand, for years I hated what I saw in the mirror and when I tried to change it by following what was working for my friends, it never seemed right for me.  That’s why I became a personal chef, personal trainer, and functional nutrition and skincare expert and created a program that worked specifically for me and now, I feel amazing!


And you can too!


The program I created for me is not the same program I use for my clients, and not the one I’ll create for you.  Yours will be based on your specific challenges and goals and we’ll work through it together.
