Small Business, Non-Profit, and Corporate Consulting Services, Collaboration, and Partnering
Is your company, organization, brand or eatery looking to start or expand its efforts around sustainability? You need a food and nutritional health expert who can provide insights, input, be a spokesperson, collaborate, or partner with you.
No matter what sector you are in, issues of sustainability, climate change and human health touch your work in ways that matter to your customer or community.
I’m here as a sustainable and resilient food systems professional, environmental champion, and integrative health expert/dietitian with 12 + years of providing nutritional counseling to a variety of complex patients using effective behavioral change techniques and a “food as medicine” approach that has worked to address chronic health issues with therapeutic dietary and lifestyle interventions.
I bring my clinical and teaching expertise as a dietitian, health practitioner and Adjunct Faculty Lecturer, my keen understanding of sustainable food systems, my systems thinking approach, as well as my creative entrepreneurial spirit, passion and dynamic communication style to provide the often-missing nutritional health link that is an essential bridge between good for the person – good for the planet.
Whether you are a small or large, local or global, just beginning, or well-established, I can identify food and nutrition solutions that will help you join the ranks of other organizations who are creating a more resilient and sustainable food system and healthier planet.
I will help you re-imagine what it means to be a more eco-friendly organization by connecting the dots for your employees, clients, between sustainability, regenerative agriculture, and human health.* This can be on an individual, community, institutional or even population level.
Whether it’s in communications, public speaking, educational presentations or handouts, creative strategizing, nutritional evaluation, sustainable dietary guidance, connecting you with numerous healthcare communities or acting as your food-as-medicine consultant around human and planetary health, I can accelerate your efforts towards environmental stewardship. Let’s talk!
The planet is depending upon our collaboration.
“There is increasing multisectoral collaboration to ensure that food production practices support a nutritious food supply and promote human health while protecting environmental, economic, and societal resources.” (1)
