Mary Ellen is a Licensed Nutritionist & Yoga Teacher who empowers women to nourish themselves from the inside out. She has spent over 20 years working in the research, nutrition, and wellness fields and accrued numerous degrees and certifications, including a Master’s in Human Nutrition.
Mary Ellen helps women in reframing & reprogramming their beliefs around food, their inner wisdom, and their full potential. By using a unique combination of scientific research, mind-body practices, and intuition, she equips her clients with the tools they need to deeply understand their own body's unique cues, needs, and desires.
Here are a few fun things about me (if you're interested):
• I'm a Leo sun, Capricorn moon, and Libra rising.
• I consider myself a vegan mac & cheese connoisseur.
• I love animals. My sweet shih tzus, Firenze and Sophie (my angel girl who crossed the rainbow bridge) are my babies.
• I'm obsessed with sparkly things (hence the sparkles all over my site). I wish nifflers were real because I think we’d get along well.
• I have a severe case of wanderlust. I love exploring new countries and cultures and I'm always planning my next trip (even while I'm on one).
I'm Mary Ellen, and I here to guide you to nourish yourself from the inside out.
I once believed the only way to feel good was through listening to various “experts” on what to eat, how to move, and even how to feel, however, that only led me on a path of confusion, anxiety, and burnout. After years of denying my unique body what it actually needs, I have learned that true power comes from within.
Now I support women in connecting with themselves on a deeper level. I want to help you in reframing and reprogramming beliefs around your body, thoughts, and emotions. I offer a unique combination of logical solutions and intuitive guidance to bridge the gap between science and spirituality.
Through classes, coaching, ceremonial circles, and retreats, I create a safe container for you to connect to your inner wisdom and call back your magic & power. Using a blend of different frameworks, tools, and modalities such as intuitive eating & movement, yoga, meditation, breathwork, energy, sound, and astrology, I help clients to tune into who they are and what they need. Once we truly know ourselves, we have the ability to use our unique talents (as well as our shadows) to heal and grow.
I bring an empathetic and practical approach to my work. My aim is to get my clients out of their heads and into their bodies so they can listen to and trust their intuition and what their bodies are telling them. I want them to experience the kind of balance, confidence, and nourishment in their lives that they have been desperately searching for.
As someone who knows what it feels like to look to others for answers and to give my power away, I want you to know that I’m not here to be your “expert” or tell you exactly what to do. Instead, I’d like to be your guide and help you find your inner strength & wisdom to trust yourself so that you can truly nourish your body, mind, and spirit.
