Change your world!
My mission is to empower people with knowledge to improve their health and happiness by incorporating a healthier lifestyle, eating habits and mindfulness.
I have special tools to help you to find out possible root causes and offer various protocols to help with your health issues (digestive issues, autoimmune and chronic diseases, inflammation, low immunity, food intolerances or toxicity etc.) that will be tailored to your needs. We are all different and one size does not fit all, especially when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle.
Combined with the step-by-step guides, I help people to implement healthier eating and lifestyle habits, adapted to their busy lives and meet them where they are. Many people know what they should eat but implementation is where most are struggling with. Together, we develop goals and agree on targets and steps which I hold my clients accountable for, helping them to establish new long-term habits (real habits don’t need motivation, they are here to stay, they just happen automatically like brushing your teeth).
“What I found also very important, is to meet a client, where they are, and offer solutions that are adaptable.”
Furthermore, I also look at other root causes found in the past health and personal history, this may be childhood issues that led to unhealthy eating habits or emotional stress, or an event, trauma or other health issues leading to the actual situation. I work with my clients to improve any blockages and empower them to allow self-acceptance and self-care. Spiritual and emotional health are often the key to healing physically.
After severe episodes of stress, fatigue and gut related issues due to a hectic lifestyle, I decided to put an end to my worries and find a solution to my problems. I learnt to eat healthier and followed a more balanced routine. As a result, I realized how the right foods and lifestyle improved my own health. Empowered by this discovery, I decided to become a nutrition coach to be able to help other busy people to improve their wellbeing too. I am so happy to use my background as Transformational Nutrition and Corporate wellness coach to help other busy professionals, entrepreneurs, or anyone with a busy lifestyle, to put their health first and transform their lives to a healthier and happier version of themselves.
A true globetrotter, I was born in Munich, Germany and lived in many countries around the world including Kenya, South Africa, USA/Miami and Portugal. And in case you wonder, I am married, have 2 wonderful adult kids and love skiing, diving, yoga and cats.
I also was recognized as the Best Health & Wellness Specialist in Portugal & Florida and got the Award for Excellence in Nutrition Education in Portugal & Florida from AI Global Media.
