"Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being,and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity"- The World Health Organization
If you are here and reading this page, you might be interested in making wellness changes in your life.
I acknowledge you for taking action, it is a huge step.
For more than a decade, I have positively transformed my health by changing cooking and eating habits and making lifestyle choices that have been taken me towards good health and happiness.
I have discovered that a combination of Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutritional habits consistently applied, are the most effective and sustainable way to make a positive impact in my life.
Living with overweight and overcoming a lifetime of unhealthy habits, is not easy. Seeing my sister having the same struggles and losing her to cancer, was even harder. It really shocked me to the core.
I needed to make a radical change in my life and once I did, I needed to help others to do the same.
Being a Chef and a Health Coach has equipped me to support individuals to break free of unhealthy cooking and eating patterns. My life experiences makes me understand the struggles and the education gives me the tools and resources to support you and your family towards a path of good health.
