Are you curious about going plant-based or want to shift to a vegan lifestyle for your health, the animals, the environment, or all of the above but aren’t sure where to start? From common plant-based and vegan-related questions, such as “where do you get protein?”, “what about calcium and bone health?” or “vegan diets seem too restrictive” the abundance of nutrition information out there can feel overwhelming to make sustainable eating habits and lifestyle changes.

My mission is to simplify plant-based and vegan nutrition by offering practical, evidence-based nutrition education and collaborating on personalized dietary changes, so clients can feel empowered to make eating plant foods more fun and fulfilling! After all, adding more plant foods to your plate doesn’t have to compromise the taste or enjoyment of food.

Through incorporating mindfulness-based eating approaches and taking gradual action steps towards your health and wellness goals, I’m here to support you in learning what type of plant-rich eating style works best for you! I work with adults in my virtual nutrition private practice. Please feel free to reach out to me for a free 20-minute discovery call.
