Hi!

I'm Maria,

                                   certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, passionate about helping people find freedom in their health. Food should be fun...not stressful or guilt ridden. And eating healthy should be simple...not confusing. However, our modern food culture has created an epidemic of complicated health issues. As a nutritionist, food educator, and wellness coach, I am here to equip individuals and families to overcome these health issues and as a result, thrive.
