I was born and raised in New Jersey by loving parents. Typical of the times, I was reared on processed and refined foods. I was a lover of frozen pizzas and any burger, fries, and soda combo meal. Vegetables were not abundant in my diet except for the infamous “frozen vegetable medley” which consisted of peas, corn, carrots, and lima beans. As a family rule, the lima beans were allowed to be pushed off to the side since my dad had eaten too many of them in the Army. Much to my surprise, I discovered in my 20’s a true love of lima beans after sampling them at a dinner party.
I continued to follow my innate curiosity eventually uncovering a love of nature and health. I was surrounded by amazing cooks, influential healthy people, and alternative lifestyles. After learning of and tasting such delicacies as avocado and squash, I began to expand my diet.
During this time, I went on to become the owner of a small, organic gardening business called “From the Ground Up” on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Working seasonally allowed me to dive deeper into the outdoors and travel.
In the course of one of my travels, I found myself volunteering my time in Guatemala with malnourished babies. It was this experience that motivated me to return to school and study Nutrition.
In 2010, I attended the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver, British Columbia. I graduated as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN). My education further fueled my love of people, health, and nutrition. Currently, I am grateful to be living and working aligned with my
passions of delicious, fresh foods, tons of fruits and veggies, and an active lifestyle of biking, hiking, yoga, and fun.
