Work With Me


Plant-based living isn’t just for tree-huggin’ hippies.

In fact, veganism is a growing movement that more people are recognizing as KEY to protecting our health, environment, and future on this planet. 


I’m so excited that you’re interested in connecting!

Here are some ways that we can work together:



Ready to #goveg but need some support? I can help you navigate veganism and apply it to your unique household. Whether you’re looking for long-term, short-term, 1:1 or small group events, I offer a variety of packages for your specific needs.



Looking for a veg-focused speaker for a workshop or wellness event? Hire me for your daycare, school, moms’s  group, office or community – we can come up with something great together!



Whether you need a technical piece or a humorous anecdote, I would love to contribute to your platform! Contact me to discuss details.



Do you have an awesome product, brand or business that aligns with my values and mission? Contact me to discuss potential partnership opportunities such as interviews, sponsored posts, product reviews, social media takeovers, or brand ambassadorship.


People often decide to go vegan:

  • To achieve a healthier weight
  • To prevent or manage chronic disease
  • To alleviate food allergies
  • To reduce their carbon footprint
  • To save the lives of countless animals
  • For better nutrition and tastier meals
  • To save money
  • To instill the above values in their children
  • To try something totally new


Whatever your reason, I’m glad you’re here.

We are born into a life where the Standard American Diet is the norm, and anything different is weird.  We live in a time where food is marketed to us from the womb, under the guise that “everything fits”, leaving us in a vicious cycle of food addiction, body obsession and poor health, while unknowingly damaging the planet, and its inhabitants.  We begin life not knowing why we eat the way that we do – and often, nothing triggers us to question our habits until we’re older.  But, then what?

I get it.  Complete lifestyle changes can be overwhelming.  Things like meal planning, food preparation, and understanding how to easily tailor recipes to meet your personal tastes and needs can be hard — without a focused commitment, the right resources, skills, and tools for success. There’s an overabundance of information and opinion out there (which can be both a blessing and a curse!).  We’re all human.  We often focus on an end result but are at a loss regarding how to actually get there.  And when we have kids on top of everything else?  Oy.

I’ve been where you are, so I’m here for you now.


About me:

Vegan since 2013.  Dietitian since 2010.  Apprentice of badassery since 1986.  Mama to a thriving veg-baby.  Animal lover, amateur yogi, runner, public health fanatic, artist, environmentalist, advocate for a plant-based world.  I justify the amount of cookies I eat by making them vegan.  Read more about me here.


My  philosophy:

I meet you where you are. To make sustainable life changes, we need to 1) have a clear vision of what we want 2) be personally invested for more than one reason and 3) make realistic changes that can be implemented strategically to avoid overwhelm.

Plant-based living is so much more than what you eat.  I like to caution people that adopting a plant-based lifestyle will not only allow you to discover a healthier, happier version of yourself, but may also make you a more compassionate, present, and profound human being.

A plant-based life can (and should) look different for everyone.  Some people may rely on getting their protein from non-soy sources, and some may need to avoid nut-based recipes.  Some may want to cut out animal-derived foods all at once, while others may want to try Meatless Monday.  There is no rule book to follow when you #goveg, so design a lifestyle you love, and you may have different needs even within your own family. We’re always evolving and that’s okay.

I don’t count calories and don’t prescribe rigid meal plans, because this derails us from the big picture by shifting the focus to numbers. Instead, I help you discover the habits needed to design a well-balanced meal planning routine for your family that will make plant-based living feasible, enjoyable, and in alignment with reaching whatever goals YOU set.  Let’s #goveg first, and watch everything else fall into place.
