Personal & Family Coaching
No matter where you are on the diet and lifestyle spectrum, I have been there myself. I love to give advice and support to individuals and families transitioning to, or already enjoying, a vegan lifestyle, whether for ethical, environmental, or health reasons. Via phone, video, or in-person, I can help you...

Generate shopping lists and meal planning for all budgets
Navigate social events and restaurants, including how to get tasty made-to-order vegan dishes at a catered event
Prepare vegan platters that omnivores will love at your dinner parties
Reboot an existing vegan diet to incorporate more whole foods, more protein, lower calorie density, or other goals you may have
