Mary Ellen is a Licensed Nutritionist 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. She once believed the only way to help others was through academic achievements and listening to various “experts;” however, it only led to confusion, anxiety, and burnout. While she is grateful for the experience her time in academia brought her, she ultimately learned an empowering truth: true knowledge comes from within.
Now Mary Ellen supports women in connecting with themselves on a deeper level, one that books and research can never fully teach. She offers a unique combination of logical solutions and intuitive guidance to bridge the gap between science and spirituality. She understands the importance of continual education & learning but also profoundly believes in listening to your heart because knowledge plus intuition leads you on your unique path to find what works for you.
Using tools and modalities such as astrology, the chakras, meditation, yoga, and intuitive eating, Mary Ellen helps her clients learn to deeply understand their own body's unique cues, needs, desires, and potential. As someone who knows what it feels like to look to others for answers and to give her power away, Mary Ellen is committed to supporting women who want to find their inner strength & wisdom to truly nourish themselves in body, mind, and spirit.
If you’re anything like me, there’s a part of you that wishes you could just be yourself and do what feels right without asking some "expert" or following some program.
You want to feel empowered and confident in your decisions, knowing that you’re taking good care of yourself. You maybe be wondering, is that even possible? I'm here to tell you it sure as heck is.
When I was diagnosed with my own health condition, I realized that I had completely lost touch with my own body’s needs. I set out to learn to trust myself again and it changed my life. I want to help you do the same.
You may have lost sight of the precious and unique individual you are but I see your highest good. Let me mirror that back to you so that you can rediscover it for yourself!
I’m not going to give you my plan and tell you to do exactly what I did because we are all made differently. What worked for me isn’t a guaranteed solution for you. Instead, we’ll work together so you can learn to listen to and honor your own needs for nourishment.
As a Licensed Nutritionist, I bring a background in science. But I also believe we’re made of more than molecules. To truly heal, we need our minds, bodies, and spirits to be aligned.
Together, we’ll discover exactly where and how you can add more nourishment to your life.
You'll also REdiscover the multitude of your sparkling facets — whether you’re a wife, mother, sister, friend, artist, goofball, overachiever, plant kween, baker, Scrabble-champion, or any of a million OTHER things — through tools like meditation, intuitive practices, astrology, and more.
Remember, health isn’t healthy when we’re stressed out about following rules and trying to do things perfectly. Instead, we’ll work together to find practical solutions that fit into your life so you can stop stressing and start living. I’m here to act as your partner and guide to find the kind of balance, confidence, and nourishment that you’ve been craving. Come along with me and...
Learn to love and trust yourself again
Does that sound like you?
I’m so happy you’re here and can’t wait to get started on your individualized path to being utterly and completely nourished. But first, I have a scenario I’d like to play out:
You’re stressed ALL the time and sometimes you’re not even sure why.
You question every choice you make around your health and well-being, constantly looking outside yourself for validation, worrying that you’re not doing it “right.”
You’ve tried all the buzzword diets only to end up feeling frustrated when they don't work out.
You end the day feeling empty and unsatisfied physically, mentally, and spiritually.
You know this isn’t what you want, but you can’t figure out how to change it.
Welcome sparkly one!
Why we all need to find Nourishment
