MEET your nutrition coach

Melanie K.

My personal passion for food and cooking put me on the path of nutrition science. Through diet changes, I have improved my performance in the gym and my overall wellbeing. Health and nutrition are deeply connected. I provide general guidance, meal plans, diet analyses, shopping lists, and oversight when making your diet changes. I am comfortable working with your specific dietary needs and making sure we are designing a nutritionally balanced plan that helps you feel great, at any stage in life. If working with me as both your Fitness and Nutrition Coach, I can optimally orient your nutrition plans towards a fitness goal.
