Not your usual motivational talk about food, weight and eating.


Instead, I entertain and educate on the emotional connection to food. Weight will always be hard to maintain until people first take time to heal their relationship with food and their body.

I understand the struggles of those with a few extra pounds as well as those battling eating disorders. I love to communicate in a fun and positive manner that your relationship with food is the key to unlocking success.

Nationally recognized for giving dynamic presentations to large audiences.

I am unique in that I can bridge the gap between the public and health professionals. I lay it all out there and don’t mind being the bad guy and telling it like it is to audiences, yet offer hope and steps towards working a doable plan to move forward.
