I was brought up in a beautiful small fishing village called Eyemouth in the South East of Scotland, but dreaming of a more exciting life I headed off to live in Madrid at age 19 to teach English, and then onto London which would become my home for over 6 years, then from there i moved to Israel to start a new exciting chapter in my life, that was 22 years ago. Several cities later, and with a plethora of experiences, my journey finally led me to New York City where I have made my home for 21 years, and i'm still in love with this city as much as I was when I arrived back in 1996.
Always interested in helping people, I volunteered with The Hospice of New York for a few years which was a profound experience. Witnessing people suffering from diseases, mostly cancer, ebb painfully and slowly out of this world, got me thinking about why is it so many people in the western world die from cancers and heart disease? Does it have to be this way? I began to educate myself about the causes of such diseases and went on to study Plant-Based nutrition at Cornell university, taking the T Colin Campbell course on Plant-Based nutrition and then went onto getting my Family Health Coaching certification from Dr Sears Wellness Institute.
Enter my love and passion for cooking healthy food for myself and others over the last 20+ years, add to this the knowledge from my education, and I started helping others by going into their homes and giving lessons on how to cook tasty and nutritious plant-based meals.
Now many happy and healthier clients later, I continue to educate myself and feel blessed to have found this lifestyle and to have the honor of sharing it with you, another profound experience.
