I’m the health & lifestyle coach around here calling B.S. on the diet industry and saying heck yes to delicious food and body love. For the past 3 years, I’ve been on a mission to help women quit dieting for good so they can finally trust their food choices, be confident in their bodies, and live a life free from unnecessary rules and restrictions. This all takes place while eating and cooking some ridiculously delicious food.
I’m here, doing this work because I’ve been there too. I started counting calories at the age of 12 and spent the following 15 years trying every diet out there. I later learned that the diet was simply a hope for a better life – one where I fit in, looked as pretty as the other girls, and was able to relax and enjoy more — rather than stressing to be and look a certain way.
Once I found intuitive eating, all that changed for me. I learned to eat the right foods for my body while still enjoying my favorite foods, learned how to love and take care of myself on a regular basis, and learned that the best version of me is ME — not me trying to be someone I’m not.
These days, I’m living my best life – spending time with my baby boy, Cooper, practicing yoga, traveling around Europe, drinking tea + red wine, working on my latest craft project, and eating the best chocolate in the whole wide world (I do live in Switzerland, after all). As much as I love and miss my hometown in the San Francisco Bay Area, my husband, son and I are happy to call Zurich home.
