Sharing how plant-based foods are convenient, satisfying, and vital to health and quality of life
On a Mission
As the founder of Eating 2 Heal, I provide nutritional and fitness coaching to promote powerful whole body improvements of health and quality of life. As a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer, and health sciences graduate, I guide individuals to harness their own body’s natural healing abilities to improve general health and to prevent and even extinguish chronic health problems such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, obesity, and autoimmune disorders. My purpose is to provide individuals the opportunity to heal the mind, body, and spirit through mindful, compassionate, and sustainable practices and values.

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” - Albert Einstein
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." - Thomas Edison
"The benefits produced by eating a plant-based diet are far more diverse and impressive than any drug or surgery used in medical practice. Heart diseases, cancers, diabetes, stroke and hypertension, arthritis, cataracts, Alzheimer's disease, impotence and all sorts of other chronic diseases can be largely prevented." - T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II, MD (The China Study 2004)
