Hi Love! I’m so happy you stopped by!

My hope is that this blog would be a place of inspiration and encouragement to eating healthy, simply and beautifully. A place to try new recipes, learn effective health tips, get excited about cooking, and prioritize intentional living.

I absolutely love delicious food full of flavor. Unfortunately, people often think of healthy eating as bland and boring, but I promise it doesn’t have to be!  I love to share healthy recipes for breakfasts, sweet treats, cocktails, light lunches, simple dinners and easy entertaining.

For my services, I blend my Masters in Counseling with my expertise as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist to help brides, wives and girl bosses reach their personal health goals of weight loss, increased energy, decreased stress, pretty skin, and living a clean, healthy lifestyle.

I love working with brides. This is a time filled with excitement and joy, yet can be filled with pressure and feeling overwhelmed. I help decrease their stress and increase their energy so they can enjoy their engagement. Brides also tend to go on crazy wedding diets that are unhealthy. Statistics show 70-80% of brides gain the weight back after marriage. My goal is for brides to lose weight the healthy way and be stress-free so they can focus on building a beautiful, healthy marriage.

My brand has evolved into also working with wives who are ready to implement a healthy lifestyle that will carry over to a healthy marriage and home.

I also have a heart for working with girl bosses because the struggle is real. Hustling 24/7, needing more energy, better sleep, more balance and needing to feel good to conquer those goals and dreams.

In addition to personalized health coaching, I provide health workshops, cooking classes, and food + lifestyle photography.  Please contact me if you’re interested in any of these services.  I’d love to help!

Lastly, I’m also the co-founder of Tee Chic, an apparel company that designs graphic tees for the fashionably fit and casually chic.
