My Story


I'm a Registered Dietitian and Registered Yoga Teacher with a passion for food. I love food and a great food pun! Orange you glad you discovered Plantable Palate?

Way back when, I started to lifting weight and running because I was afraid to gain weight. I only ate foods low in fat. I rarely ate dessert because if I did, I knew I had to workout more. I don’t remember how or when the idea got in my head, it just appeared one day. 

It wasn’t until I started yoga, that I eased up on the excessive exercise. I run now because I enjoy it, not because I have to. Yoga and meditation help me constantly to be in tune with myself.

When I became pregnant with my daughter, I dove into studying all about the foods I needed to eat and avoid  to help my growing baby. A light bulb went off, I decided to go back to school for nutrition. 


Learning the science behind food its' influence on the body, I had a wakeup call! I started to honor my body more through yoga and eating more of what I wanted, without feeling guilty. I came to appreciate and respect my body more.

My mission with Plantable Palate is to educate and help women understand the negative impact diets have on us. I want women to feel happy and comfortable in their skin. Together lets' set a foundation for a healthier way of living.
