Let me help you make healthy choices for you and our planet.


I offer sustainable family nutrition education and counseling.

I work with parents, families, and individuals to make healthy and sustainable food choices to bolster immunity, promote lifelong health and wellness, and protect our planet. It is particularly important for children early in life to adopt healthy habits. Children look to their parents and caregivers as role models. I encourage parents to practice making healthy choices for themselves and their families, and help them navigate food for nourishment, energy, and immunity from the farm or store to the table or lunch box. I also work regularly with moms who want to eat healthy to once again feel comfortable in their skin and regain a sense of self or control after expanding their families in addition to individuals who want to adopt sustainable habits of eating whole foods.

  • I offer nutrition and wellness education that is sustainable for you, your family, and our planet.

  • I educate moms who want to get fit and healthy and be role models for their kids.
  • I teach kids to nourish their bodies.
  • I provide accountability and support to help clients achieve their nutrition and wellness goals.
  • I help clients identify ways to minimize toxins in their daily lives.
  • I provide sustainability consulting and education on a variety of environmental topics.

My Philosophy

Nutrition to me is rooted in sustainability. What is good for our bodies is what is also good for our Earth. Buying and eating nourishing whole foods with minimal packaging and free of pesticides not only is what is healthiest for our bodies but also healthiest for our planet. Our planet and our bodies are our future, and we need both.

Our nutrition practices must also be sustainable for us. I focus on helping clients adopt lifelong habits that can be sustained. I do not believe in short-term challenges or fad diets, nor do I think there is a “one size all diet” that works for everyone. I do not provide a meal plan that clients have to follow during my programs, only to be lost once the program is over. I teach clients habits that they can adopt regardless of their food preferences, aversions, intolerances, or allergies. Each client is unique, and my goal is my clients adopt small, incremental, and sustainable habits that overall transform their diet and way of life.

For Parents

As parents, we want what is best for our families. When it comes to nutrition, we face a lot of challenges, whether it be busy schedules, picky eaters, readily available processed foods, finances, lack of knowledge, or even peer pressure. My Family Friendly Nutrition program is designed to get your family on track to adopting sustainable and healthy eating habits.

By teaching our children to make sustainable and nutritious food choices at a young age, they will crave healthy food when they are older and will more likely experience a lifetime of health and wellness.

For Individuals

My custom coaching program allows us to work together to allow you to identify and achieve your own personal goals and have 1:1 support along the way. Gain accountability through access to personal coaching, weekly check-ins, and daily reminders.

I offer both online and in-person 1:1 consulting (local to Santa Barbara or Goleta), allowing us to work together from anywhere. During each meeting, we will identify small, achievable habits for you to practice each week that together will add up to lifelong changes.

For Groups

I also offer nutrition, environmental education, and sustainability consulting for non-profits and school groups. I have experience with individuals of all ages, ranging from leading elementary school groups to advising undergraduate students to speaking to adults.

Contact me for information on services related to ocean conservation, plastic pollution, climate change, marine mammals, school sustainability, and other environmental education needs.

Food tells a story of our lives. We share food with family and friends. It solicits memories of childhood, family traditions, and friendships for many of us. I am excited to be part of your food story, and help you make meaningful change in your life.
