Keep it Simple and TRUST YOUR GUT!
Through my own struggles, I've learned to simplify my life and use my own intuition to inform my healthy lifestyle choices. I'm now a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach and a Digestive Health Specialist. I am on a mission to help others feel and look their best.
Using my “Trust Your Gut” approach, I help others achieve transformation. I like to place a large emphasis on gut health, which is largely responsible for our overall health. Excess weight, fatigue, bloating, skin issues as well as anxiety and depression are all symptoms of an unbalanced gut microbiome.
I also promote listening to your own intuition around food and finding root causes of any issues.
I believe in eating REAL food with NATURAL ingredients in a MINDFUL way.
My name is Steph and I love food.
Since I can remember, I've used food for comfort even as a young child. Throughout my career as teacher, work stress would get the best of me. I had an awful habit of taking on too much, expecting too much and then feeling overwhelmed. Stress eating, binging, emotional eating, call it what you want... I was just too busy to care about my health.... I was overweight, tired and anxious.
My own journey led me to re-evaluate what was truly important in life and to eventually become a Transformational Nutrition Coach. I now help others who are feeling overwhelmed and stressed find the time to prioritize their health and become the best, most healthy versions of themselves.

I highly recommend Steph if you are looking to up your nutrition, lose weight or for overall health to ensure you are getting the nutrients your body requires!!!
No question was left unanswered, she was really good at helping me trouble shoot any issues I was having.
Steph has a very optimistic outlook, always encouraging me.
My reason for her services was ....I started eating vegetarian 3 years ago and the entire time I've been frustrated in getting in enough protein and not sure if the amount that I've been told in the past to eat was correct. Also I had been told in the past to eat super low carbs (25 grams) ...Which seemed impossible on a vegetarian diet.
Steph really helped answer my questions and got me on a meal plan where I was in the right calorie range to lose weight (which I did), and also the correct amount of carbs, fat and protein, ....ensuring I was getting a variety of vitamins and minerals as well as a lack of inflammatory foods and foods with chemicals that weren't whole foods.
Another thing I learned was how to be aware of what I'm eating, and how to plan on my own, creating my own unique new dishes.
The goal was to lose fat, gain a bit of muscle and increase my workouts and steps per day.
Thanks to Steph I now have a plan and have peace of mind in my weight loss and health journey.
