Why Hire Me?
I graduated from Bastyr University with a doctorate in naturopathic medicine in 1998. I am an advanced (Level 2) nutrition coach certified by Precision Nutrition, a USA Powerlifting (USAPL)-certified club level coach, and a personal trainer certified by the Shredded by Science Academy. A lifelong exercise enthusiast, I have been strength training since 2012 and began competing in powerlifting in 2014. I have competed in the USAPL Federation at the state, regional, national, and international level.
An avid cook and gardener, I wrote and photographed the recipe blog Healthy Green Kitchen from 2009-2015. I have contributed recipes to numerous cookbooks and my healthy lifestyle book, One Simple Change, was published by Chronicle Books in 2013.
I have 2 teenage children with my husband Dan. We live in Gardiner, NY with our numerous rescue pets (3 dogs and 4 cats) and chickens. I am a strength coach at Hudson Valley Raw Athletics in Highland, NY; I work with clients from elsewhere online.
