Born and raised in Richmond, CA, I’ve always known two things: helping others is my soul's purpose, and entrepreneurship is in my blood! While raising my family, I worked in the nonprofit and government sectors. I’ve launched several businesses, including a furniture business, a gourmet popcorn company, a moving service, and a vegan pop-up shop.
When I was diagnosed with hypertension at age 39, I knew medication couldn’t be the only option. So, I enrolled in a Master's degree program in holistic health education, learning all I could about using food to heal us, food’s effect on chronic disease, health disparities, climate change, GMO/organic farming, food politics, integrative healing modalities and herbs. I stopped using chemicals and preservatives in my food, on my body, skin, hair, and around my home. I started spending more active time in nature. Eventually, I eliminated meat and dairy from my diet while integrating more and more whole and plant-based foods. These changes have been nothing short of an awakening for me—and the inspiration behind the creation of 100% Healthier Foods.
Today, I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Metaphysician and Food for Life Instructor. I hold a bachelor’s degree in humanities/business, master's degree in metaphysical science and am currently working towards my PH.D degree in holistic health counseling. Through my work, I am excited and grateful to share what I’ve learned to help others benefit.
When I’m not working, I like brainstorming my latest business venture, teaching nutrition education classes, reading, attending networking events, growing herbs and veggies, making natural products, trying new vegan recipes and spending quality time with my family.
When you’re ready to take that next step towards a happy, healthier you, I can’t wait to meet you.
Peace, love and higher consciousness,
