Success comes in many forms. Take a look at the results people have had working with me.

Many reported feeling more positive and motivated in their daily lives. They have found a new sense of purpose and fulfillment. You can be successful too!

I’ve lost 30 lbs on the parameters you set for me.

My last test for blood sugar came back within parameters of normal (with help of diet and glucophage). And….I’M PREGNANT! I cant thank you enough for all the help you have given me in educating me about food. I now eat smarter. I truly do not think that I would have been able to get pregnant and get my health in check without your help. My sincerest Thank you!

I’m hoping to get the needed knowledge I need to learn how to live a life without the digestive issues I’ve had for years. There may be limitations but it will be worth it being able to live without such chronic digestive issues!!!”

I’m a South Louisiana gal raised on “yes ma’ams,” potluck suppers, and sweet tea.

I’ve found my love working with people who, just like you, are transforming their old habits and staying committed to finding what foods work for them. I  want to help you land butter side up on your journey to be the very best you.

My road has been long and winding, peppered with lots of questions and research to get to the clear understanding of how to use food as information for the body.

I have a BS in Dietetics from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and completed my internship working with the beloved veterans of our country. Since then I’ve run hospital cafeterias, implemented worksite wellness campaigns, nourished loved ones who were in ICU, rehabbed people after major heart surgery or vehicle accidents, loved on grandmas and grandpas in the nursing home, and taught children how to prepare nourishing food for themselves.

I have recently completed a certification to become Louisiana’s first and only Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner, which gives me the tools to help you get to the root of the challenges that ail you.
