In 2015, after working in the digital marketing industry for over 10 years at companies like Facebook and AOL, I finally decided to make my passion for health and wellness more than just a hobby. I spent years reading and studying nutrition, but I was unable to implement what I was learning in a practical way because of my demanding career and busy lifestyle. After having two babies, time became even more limited and eating healthy and exercising became even more challenging. I started to look at friends and colleagues around me and I realized that I was not the only one struggling with living a healthy lifestyle while also juggling a career, a family, and everyday obstacles. We all have the desire to eat healthy, the desire to workout more regularly, and the desire to live a more balanced life, but, things always seem to get in the way.
Nourished by Lauren grew out of my lifelong passion for health, wellness, and the science of nutrition. My goal as a certified holistic nutritionist and health coach is to help individuals improve their health and develop practical, sustainable habits to live a balanced life. I believe in whole foods and real ingredients and I don’t believe in fad diets or quick fixes. I study the latest research and pay attention to new, emerging theories related to weight loss and health improvement so that I can arm my clients with the most effective tactics to reach their goals.
I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California and am certified through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
