Hi there!

Here are a few fun facts about me:

• I'm a Leo sun, Capricorn moon, and Libra rising (tell me your big three - I'm obsessed with knowing everyones!)

• I consider myself a vegan mac & cheese connoisseur.

• I love animals. My sweet shih tzus, Firenze and Sophie will forever be 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).

Hi! I'm Mary Ellen, a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist & Certified Yoga Teacher who wants to guide you in nourishing 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 reframe and reprogram 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, workshops, ceremonial circles, and retreats, I create a safe container for you to connect to your inner wisdom and call back your innate magic & power. Using a blend of different frameworks, tools, and modalities such as intuitive eating & movement, yoga, meditation, breathwork, reiki, sound healing, and astrology, I help clients to tune into who they are and what they need. Once we truly know ourselves, we can use our unique talents (as well as our shadows) to heal and grow.

My aim is to get you out of your head and into your body so you can listen to and trust your intuition. I want you to experience the kind of balance, confidence, and nourishment in your life that you 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.

Mary Ellen Valverde, MS, CNS, LDN, is a Licensed Nutritionist and Registered Yoga Instructor who helps clients feel clear and confident about what truly nourishes them. With over 20 years of experience in research, nutrition, and wellness, she holds numerous degrees and certifications, including a Master’s in Human Nutrition.

Mary Ellen works with busy women who feel frustrated with wellness, helping them rethink their beliefs about food, movement, inner wisdom, and full potential. Combining science, spirituality, and intuition, she provides tools to deeply understand their body's unique cues, needs, and desires. This approach enables her clients to experience true nourishment without rules and restrictions.
