Ever wish you could get out of burnout,
and reclaim your health?

Well, that’s my job.
There’s a myth out there that says: “executives must sacrifice their health for wealth – and I beg to differ!! I’m all about creating a foundation of wellness, so that you can THRIVE in all areas of your life -- mind, body and spirit!


Because I believe life is meant to be enjoyed,

not endured.

My Story

As a clinical research executive for 20+ years, I saw many of my colleagues hustle themselves into burnout.

– and when I realized that many of them were ignoring their own intuitive wisdom, I knew something had to change.

The Turning Point

I embarked on a journey to help executives and leaders reclaim their health. And I set out to craft a holistic approach to wellness, that supports SUSTAINED SUCCESS, without sacrificing health for wealth.

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories -- including Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.

I quit my Corporate job, and I started my own wellness coaching business...

NourishedAlive Was Born!

Today, I provide 1:1 Wellness Coaching for executives, who are ready to revolutionize their well-being, and elevate their performance.

My clients not only enhance their vitality, but also cultivate a sustainable foundation for enduring success – ultimately, reconnecting with their own healing power, so they can create a life that truly nourishes their mind, body and soul.


My signature framework, NourishedAlive, relies on a holistic approach to wellness, that includes a focus on: Intuitive Movement, Intuitive Nourishment, and Intuitive Flow.

They say business isn’t personal,
but I beg to differ...

Most days, you can find me gardening, cooking delicious plant-based meals, and spending time at the beach with my family and friends.

I am best known for my Vegan Banana Bread. But also….I’m known for helping inspire and motivate others to reclaim their health and vitality. 

People often refer to me as their 'inspiration', but I like to call myself the Intuitive Nourishment guide for executives EVERYWHERE!"

I enjoy serving the world by reminding others of their own INTUITIVE KNOWING. And hey! When I’m not busy battling the burnout crisis, you can probably find me catching a wave or two!
