For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for all things food! I love to explore farmer’s markets, experiment in the kitchen (of course!) and share this joy with others! That energy is what inspired me to launch Sweet Pea Cuisine in 2006.
I hold a Certificate of Culinary Arts from L’Academie de Cuisine and have over twenty years of experience in professional and home kitchens. Over the years I have embraced farm to table and sustainable cuisine. Alternative cooking styles are also a passion of mine - from plant based eating to baking with “cleaner” ingredients, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate nutrient dense ingredients into meals. My philosophy is that food should be nourishing, comforting and enjoyed. It truly matters what we put into our bodies. The age-old adage “you are what you eat” still holds true!

Health and wellness have become integral to my life over the years. From trying to stay fit, nourish my body and more recently to truly taking care of my entire being. I see the havoc that modern living can create in our bodies and I’m passionate about reversing this! Having faced health challenges of my own, I have explored and embraced holistic and integrative options in my healing, especially the mind-body connection. As we know, food and nutrition is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to health and wellness. As a certified integrative health coach, I guide and support clients to achieve optimal health while living their life’s purpose. I am a 2021 graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN). Through IIN I studied under a plethora of experts in the health and wellness space, including Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Mark Hyman, Joan Borysenko and Dr. Deepak Chopra. As a health coach, I embrace a holistic approach to wellness which includes not only nutrition but spiritual life, social relationships and your career to name a few.
