About Me

Most of us are blithely unaware or indifferent to diet and health until serious illness strikes.  


I want to help others prevent a medical tragedy from occurring and to ease a path to healing and recovery through whole plant foods, if it does.

 A seasoned plant-based nutritional coach and chef, Cathy has taught about the profound health benefits of plant-based nutrition, working with patients to prevent, treat and often reverse their chronic disease conditions through lifestyle counseling, group immersion programs and cooking classes.
