How Healthy Eats Came to Exist
Two of my interests in life: nutrition and helping others.
I have always loved food and helping others. When I started teaching healthy lifestyle classes for Memorial Hospital in 2013, I learned a lot about the health status of my community and the day-to-day struggles individuals face with healthy living. This encouraged me to start a business as a way to help others with healthy lifestyle change. I started Healthy Eats in 2015 shortly after graduating college. I attained my Certified Health Coaching Certification and Healthy Eats Nutrition Services was born; combining my love of food, cooking, and helping others.
“I have a passion for helping individuals live healthier lives and improving the health of our community.”
I have never been a live-by-the-rules individual so starting my own business geared towards what I love to do the most just seemed right. Seeing it grow to where it is today has been exhilarating, but no more fulfilling than watching individuals change their lives through diet, exercise, and lifestyle. The connection with individual clients is something I enjoy more than anything because I get the privilege of being part of their journey to health and wellness. This is my passion, life, and purpose to assist individuals in living the healthiest life possible and I am honored to get to be a part of it.
