I follow a science- and evidence-based approach and give my clients the knowledge and tools necessary to be able to sustain their new habits & transform their bodies and minds…for life.

I love working through myths in the diet industry, and bringing you back to the truth about nutrition and what it really takes to achieve your dream body. When you’re doing your own research, it can be overwhelming how much conflicting information exists in the world of nutrition.

“I can say that it was hands down the best purchase I could have ever committed to for myself.”

In just ONE month, I saw a huge change. I have lost 11 pounds and many inches working with Maria along the way. She is not only a coach, but a huge supporter and always a phone call or text away. She has prepared me enough to do this on my own by helping me create all these better habits in my life. I no longer binge eat, I hit my calories daily & I can look at food and know what they are high in for macros (something I never used to do) and she has taught me about balance when going out to eat too. These habits that she has helped me create got me to my goals in five months.

Certifications & Programs

I am a certified nutrition coach through Precision Nutrition, as well as a certified health mindset coach. Holding these certifications is incredibly important to me as they rely heavily on practices that are not only science- and evidence-based, but what actually works in real-world application. And new data is always coming out, which is why I think it’s important to stay up to date on the latest research. This allows me to serve my clients at the highest level.

my story…

I started coaching after overcoming my own mindset struggles brought on by fitness competitions.

I went from the best shape of my life to my worst in a matter of months. Not a single person made a comment to me on my rapid weight gain (30+ pounds and I’m not even 5’2) or my newly developed eating behaviors post-competitions, but it wasn’t necessary. I knew what I was doing to myself and I chose to continuously act then look the other way. Constant overeating, not listening to my body, and having a horrible mindset as it related to my health and fitness is exactly what led me to that middle photo. I needed that reality check. Slowly but surely, I figured it out on my own. More than anything, I wish I had a coach that would have helped me by diving into my self sabotaging behaviors, my thoughts around those behaviors, and was there to help get me out of my own head.

At the time in 2018, I didn’t know that a functional nutrition and health mindset coach could work with me on these uncomfortable yet real behaviors + negative thought patterns. It would have greatly expedited the process and saved me a hell of a lot of time and tears.

Once I truly understood what it took to be on the other side of self-sabotage, I became a coach that helps with exactly that.

Just know, you are not alone. Whatever you’re struggling with is absolutely changeable.
