Guiding your journey to lasting health and happiness
I’ve been on a holistic health and wellness journey my entire life. As a teen, I focused on nutrition to optimize athletic performance. In college, I majored in dietetics with a focus on health and fitness because it fused the two things I loved most – food and movement. But despite great habits and amassed knowledge, my health was far from optimal. Throughout my 20’s and 30’s, I struggled with gut dysfunction, thyroid disease, and infertility caused by hormonal imbalance. My diet was healthy, it just wasn’t right for me. This shift in awareness changed everything.
My journey back to balance meant exploring the roots of dysfunction and removing inflammatory triggers. A mindfulness practice changed my relationship with stress, further enhancing well-being. Slowly and naturally my body healed resulting in incredible energy, optimal gut health, reduced thyroid medication, and miraculously, the birth of my two kids.
More than a decade later, my lifestyle feels like holistic well-being. Combining the well-earned wisdom from my experience, a B.S. in dietetics, a certification in health coaching, and a successful career leading people in the pharmaceutical industry, I passionately support women as they become their healthiest, most vibrant selves.

My life is completely changed because my health has completely changed."For as long as I can remember I have suffered from stomach issues and have always told myself it was normal. It all came to a head last year when everything I ate hurt. Kate was there to help me when I needed it most. She walked me through how simple I could make things and how nourishing myself, not depriving myself, was going to be the key to my best self. Kate helped me recognize patterns that were no longer working for me. My life is completely changed because my health has completely changed. Kate was my accountability partner in every area of life. Without her, I have no idea where I would be."
I literally don’t remember when I ever felt so good!"I had tried everything I could think of to feel better including every kind of Western medicine and a couple of non-traditional therapies. Sometimes I had hope I was improving but ultimately nothing stuck and I had given up on ever feeling genuinely good. A friend told me about Kate so I was prepared to give her a chance. I was not prepared for the genuine and lasting effect Kate’s guidance, advice, and care would have on my immediate symptoms and my overall health. One of the nicest and most insightful people I’ve ever met and without a doubt the most inspirational, positive, and effective person I have ever met in healthcare. I can’t recommend Kate highly enough, I literally don’t remember when I ever felt so good!"
I’m honestly blown away by the changes I’ve seen in my body and in my outlook."I came to Kate at a low point in my life. My energy was scattered and I felt unmotivated and out of whack. I’ve always known the importance of nutrition and fitness but Kate helped me see an even bigger picture. She’s an intelligent and mindful coach. Since working with her, my balance has been restored and I feel genuinely happier being accountable to myself. I’m honestly blown away by the changes I’ve seen in my body and in my outlook. I’m so grateful to her."
I have become a better person for those around me personally and professionally."Kate helped me become aware of how diet and exercise impacts my outlook on day-to-day activities. She also introduced me to mindfulness and guided concepts of it into my professional and personal life. This has helped me tremendously with productivity at work and presence with my family. Kate is a genuine person who practices what she coaches and maintains a personalized approach to my needs. She provides a safe space without judgment while highlighting personal accountability."
