I am your guide and support for creating a healthy lifestyle that you love and sustains you!

As this has been my own personal journey in healing. I am so grateful to continue in helping others overcome trauma and health challenges.

Unlike a traditional nutritionist, I focus less on protein, calories, fat, and carbohydrate intake. You’ll never receive a restrictive list of foods from me. Instead, you’ll effortlessly crowd out unhealthy foods and replace them with delicious, nourishing ones. With my help, a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle becomes second nature. We’ll work on developing healthy habits that you’re excited about that will last a lifetime. I wasn’t a vegan all of my life, and I understand the journey many of us take from omnivore to plant-based. I am passionate about helping you make the journey a smooth, safe, and enjoyable one.

In 2008, I opened the first vegan, plant based cafe in Chesterfield, MO. In 2010 I opened the first raw vegan, plant based cafe and yoga studio in St. Louis, MO. Both locations held cooking demonstrations, classes and workshops. I also worked with doctors in the area and have coached people for over 10 years.

I am all about creating a healthy and compassionate lifestyle that honors your own health and well being. Through my education, personal experience, and work with others, I have acquired over 20 years worth of knowledge regarding plant-based nutrition, health, and wellness! I use this knowledge to guide you to true nourishment!

I am available for in-person, phone and/or video coaching.

I am also available for speaking engagements, private or group coaching, personalized cooking classes, dinner events, corporate wellness programs, market tours, catering, pantry makeovers, commercial kitchen consulting, restaurant/café recipe formulation, and more hands on experiences!

I look forward to working with you!

Love ‘n Light!
