My favorite thing about coaching women in their nutrition and movement practices is that we get to come together as a team to create a life of balance by applying informed nutrition principles and embracing mindful and purposeful movement with consistent support and accountability.
I take a science-based and integrative approach to your nutrition and movement needs that focus on you as a whole-ass human. This means your highs and lows, lived experiences, your desires and wishes, and yes, even your biggest insecurities, are all accounted for in our work together. We don’t half-ass things around here. Health is about so much more than nutrition and fitness and it’s time we start treating it as such.
After successfully conquering my own struggles with diet culture and disordered eating and movement habits, I vowed to be the person I always wish I had in my corner. It took a lot of growth, learning, nurturing, and self-compassion to get to where I am now. Those principles are something that I seek to extend to each and every one of the people I work with. I have found freedom, confidence, and abundance in my approach to overall health and I can help you achieve this too!
In addition to nutrition and movement coaching I am a healthcare leader, public health educator, introvert, enneagram 6, wife, and mom of two. In my free time you can find me hanging out with my husband and our children, picking up heavy barbells, knitting socks and sweaters, or baking the occasional sourdough loaf. At night when the kids go to bed, I’m usually nose-deep in textbooks and assignments studying to complete my Master’s of Public Health.

Like many women I’ve met, I was hyper-aware of my body size from a young age. I was praised for being small and chastised if I participated in a behavior that was thought to potentially sacrifice that status.
After seeing first hand that smaller somehow meant prettier, better, and more valuable, I became obsessed with shrinking myself and fitting into society’s pretty little box of what I should look like tied up neatly with a ribbon.
I’m not exaggerating when I say my life completely changed once I got my hands on a barbell. I finally had a purpose in the gym that wasn’t specifically tied to shrinking myself. I wanted to get stronger. And I did. I competed in my first powerlifting meet in 2018 and even continued to train with a barbell throughout my second pregnancy. This is when I knew that I wanted to pursue health and movement coaching for women who have lived through diet culture bullshit like myself.
As I began studying to make this dream a reality, it was as if a curtain was pulled back on the fitness industry. I witnessed just how many conflicting “rules” and unsubstantiated claims existed in this space. On one side of the spectrum you have a myriad of restrictive diets with lofty claims and promises and at the opposite end exists strict anti-diet messaging that shames anyone with performance or aesthetic goals.
What was missing was my nutritionally agnostic and nuanced approach to health and movement. You won’t find support for any restrictive, fad-diets around here, but you will find an advocate for body autonomy and agency. We’re thriving in the grey area over here and focusing on your overall health and personal desires.
Feel free to reach out at any time and we can identify where this new found freedom and rejection of diet culture practices imposed by society can lead you!
