Note From Pauline:
It is my joy to help others heal, teach them how to be well nourished and educate them on how to continue on a healthy plan for a lifetime.
Food Sensitivities, gut issues, stress, cardiovascular, diabetic and hormonal issues are common situations seen in my practice. They respond beautifully to a sound nutrition protocol. It is my pleasure to help others rectify these common situations in a non invasive manner.
I approach my clients' health goals in a comprehensive manner: lifestyle, work, stress, genetics, emotional and spiritual health all play a major role in determining how vibrant we are. Together, we will create a customized nutritional plan that works for you. This multi-faceted approach includes menu planning, supplement protocols, recipes, & lifestyle management.
Personal Journey into Nutrition as a Career:
I changed my career path after an initial 5 year stint in sales and marketing because I was fascinated by the human body and maintenance of optimum health. How we fuel our bodies determines how we feel both physically and emotionally, thereby determining how we live our lives. Now, with 4 children ranging from preschool age to middle school, nutrition is the key to my success in life. Without being properly nourished, I would not be able to function or enjoy my life at the level that I currently do.
My Running History:
I started running with my Dad when I was 7 years old, doing a couple of miles on the weekends. In high school I ran track, competing in the 2 mile, but most of all, running has always been something I do for me. It’s very personal. I don’t do a lot of races: I’ve run one marathon, a handful of ½’s, but my favorite thing to do is to run the trails in the reservoir.
