  • As the mother of two small children, along with working a demanding full-time job, I felt overwhelmed with my health and overall wellness goals and with how to even begin achieving them. I began working one-on-one with Andrea and, in a little over 5 months, I have achieved a healthier balance in my life through improvements in my sleep, mental health, nutrition, physical movement and weight loss. During our sessions, Andrea helps me identify realistic goals to focus on; little by little, those goals turned into realistic lifestyle changes. Those lifestyle changes have resulted in a 35-pound weight loss (now maintaining), better sleep, improved physical and mental wellness, and successful nutrition awareness. Working with Andrea has been so rewarding. Her personalized and genuine approach, along with her passion for health and wellness, have made a huge difference in my life!

  • Before working with Andrea, I had lost weight with another weight loss program but was struggling to maintain my loss and felt unmotivated and out of control. I did not feel like I was left with any long-term strategies and I was fearful of spiraling into my old habits. Andrea helped me to create an entirely new identity within my nutrition and exercise routine and provided me with sustainable strategies, support, and guided me through a complete mindset shift. I feel like a completely different person! Andrea helped me to navigate food triggers, develop strategies for restaurant eating, and changed the way I think about healthy eating. I am most proud of making exercise a part of my life through small, behavioral steps. Andrea uses a holistic approach that targets behavioral and emotional changes and I appreciate the focus on body image and positive thinking. Andrea’s approach is refreshing and life-changing! She devotes all of her energy and knowledge to you, listens carefully, adapts to meet your needs, and most importantly, is your biggest cheerleader throughout the transformation. Because of Andrea, I have developed pillars of my health and well-being that I will utilize throughout every phase of my life.

  • I have always lacked self-confidence when it comes to my body appearance and overall health. I have tried and failed at every yo-yo diet in the books. Nothing was sustainable for me as a 12+ hour school leader. When I received results back from my doctor that I was pre-diabetic, I knew it was time for a serious change. I needed to take my life, and my health, back. I needed something that would be sustainable for early mornings and late nights, something I could feel successful at. Andrea gave me answers to my problems and so much more. After working with Andrea for 90 days I have regained confidence in myself, returned to a normal blood sugar level, lost almost 20 pounds and feel better than ever! Andrea was my biggest cheerleader throughout my process and I am confident my healthy and happy lifestyle will continue to flourish thanks to her setting me up for ultimate success.

  • Before starting on my journey with Andrea, I was in copious amounts of pain, an emotional wreck, hormonally imbalanced, and I had little control over my own life. My pain was controlling me, not the other way around. The moment I agreed to work with Andrea on changing my diet and lifestyle is the exact moment that I took my own life back. That is how life altering her program has been for me. After just two weeks, I had quit drinking caffeine and had cut sugar completely from my diet. About three weeks into the program, I felt myself having more energy and I began to do the things I used to be able to do before my pain -- walk the dogs with my wife, do my share of the chores around the house, cook, etc. And best of all, I was doing all of these things with a smile on my face. After two months, I had transformed my diet, cut down on my pain medications, improved my performance at work, incorporated exercise back into my routine, and had begun to participate in my marriage as an equal half again. It has now been over 7 months and I'm proud to say I've stuck to my lifestyle change (with a few slips here and there, of course), and I've never felt better. I've lost over 35 lbs, an unintentional benefit of eating clean and incorporating exercise into my daily routine. I have more energy than I've ever had in my adult life. My mood has improved to such a degree that I didn't hit my usual "seasonal slump" this Fall. Andrea is a truly amazing dietitian. She tailored the program to fit into my hectic schedule. She takes a holistic approach to what she does -- taking into account not only the physical, but also the emotional and psychosocial barriers to getting healthy. And everything she suggests is evidence-based and anchored in science. As a nurse, I have worked beside many dietitians and nutritionists. All of them pale in comparison to Andrea. She is so down to earth (which can be hard to find in a dietitian), and she practices what she preaches! She will be alongside you giving you great tips and recipes that she uses herself. I could never speak highly enough nor give enough credit to Andrea for how she has helped me change my life. She has a unique gift for connecting with and motivating people to action, and she is using that gift to inspire change in those she works with. It's been remarkable to be a part of everything she offers. Thank you, Andrea!

  • I  worked with Andrea leading up to my wedding; my goal was to feel good about my body (and my skin in particular) on my big day. Andrea made what initially felt like big changes into small, manageable pieces with great recipes and ideas for simple lifestyle tweaks. Plus, she was a huge support amongst the stress of it all. The best part was: IT WORKED. On the day of my wedding, I truly felt like I was in the best shape of my life, had clear, soft skin, and felt great knowing that I had done everything I could to prepare and all that was left to do was focus on the moment and smile for the camera.
