Personalized Nutrition, Whole Body Wellness, & Root Cause Awareness


Bloating. Sugar Cravings. Migraines. Aggravated Skin. Extra Weight. Mood Swings. Poor Sleep. 

There are answers and solutions.

Your health journey is not a passive experience but an active pursuit that you have the power to shape. Your goals are valid and within your reach. By optimizing lifestyle modifications and digestive processes, you can tap into the potential of your gut health, which plays a pivotal role in nutrient absorption, immune function, cognitive regulation, and disease prevention. This understanding can foster optimism and a more substantial commitment to your health journey.


Gut-Driven, Jump-Start Digestive Health to Nourish Body, Mind, and Spirit is based on the philosophy that ‘You are only as healthy as the food you can digest.’ It is your guide to digging deeper, getting to the root, and nourishing whole-body wellness. 

A solid foundation of sustainable habits tailored to your unique physiology, emphasizing progress, not perfection, and plant-based diversity for optimal microbial balance and health. These habits are not just temporary fixes but a commitment to your health that can bring about lasting, positive changes. 

In good health!


I focus on personalized nutrition with my clients and guide them through the physical and mental aspects of making positive changes.


The adverse effects of the standard American diet demand attention. Self-care and the undeniable force of a sustainable foundation can create a ripple effect of habits that favor the next trendy diet. 


My approach is encapsulated in the phrase "food as medicine," but together, we dig deeper. My integrative approach combines my expertise as a nutrition-based chef and integrative health coach. I focus on more plant-based choices, the power of healing through food choices, addressing potential inflammation in the body, and lifestyle medicine practices, both on and off the plate, for a holistic approach to health.

What does “healthy” mean to you?

Consider that you are only as healthy

as the food you can digest...

Are you taking care of yourself? What makes you happy? Don't forget about self-care. 

RESET 90/10 

Once you become familiar with how digestion works and the science behind the gut brain connection, it's time to start a program. They say hard habits are hard to break, but in three weeks time with dedication, you'll look back and proudly at your accomplishments. Remember, you are capable of profound and powerful modifications with the understanding that you may have to stir things up, let stuff go and settle in to allow for progress. It's like the wonderful feeling of cleaning out your closet. Let's jump in!

As someone who has struggled with digestive issues for most of my adult life, working with Chef Ellen helped me manage my issues better. 

Her tasty recipes never left me feeling like I was missing out on yummy foods or tasty treats. She also offers such incredible support. Her knowledge and laser-sharp focus with me personally had me confident that she genuinely cared. I highly recommend Chef Ellen and can see anyone benefiting from the 90/10 reset and maintenance program to refocus your relationship with food and nourishing your body. Food can heal us!
