I'm Marlyn, a certified nutritionist, lifestyle educator and healthy hormone specialist with over 25 years experience in the health and wellness industry. I serve ambitious professionals, entrepreneurs and those looking to restore and revitalize their health and well-being. My years in the industry range from managing healthcare facilities, to corporate food sales, to counseling clients in the clinical setting.

For the last 11 years, I’ve had the deep pleasure of running my own functional nutrition consulting practice and watching lives change for the better each day. Whether it's working one-on-one with a client or leading large group programs for over 200 people, I find there is nothing more rewarding and internally satisfying than helping people transform. From weight loss to balancing hormones to getting off alcohol and sugar to completely changing blood work for the better, each client is unique with their own story, path and destination. 

People always ask me, why I do what I do. The truth is, nutrition and health are my ultimate passion and life’s purpose. I live, breathe, eat, think, drink, and dream about all that's healthy and nutritious. My love of nutrition was sparked by my early teen struggles: hormonal imbalances, weight gain and lack of energy. I was frustrated by physicians, fad diets and conventional medicine that couldn’t “fix me,” so I began searching for the truth — how do food, vitamins, minerals, and lifestyle choices affect my health? In fact, my first term paper in high school was on the harmful effects of food additives…something no one was talking about in 1978. While experimenting with quick-fix diets, and watching others do the same, I’ve found that true healing is a process of slowing down and looking deeper. It’s a blend of modalities including life-enhancing foods, mindfulness, conscious choices, letting go, understanding your genetics, and the permission to allow yourself to heal.

Through the years, I’ve been blessed to learn from the best physicians, acupuncturists, mind-body healers and other like-minded nutritionists, all of whom have helped teach me tools and practices to create a body and mind in balance. I keep myself immersed in the field by attending medical conferences, speaking with highly-trained professionals, trying healthy new restaurants and food products and researching all the latest science-based information.

As a result of working with Marlyn, I lost 15 pounds, have more energy and no longer experience that horrific chronic back pain that was interfering with my best life. My confidence improved, my body is more in balance and my skin is glowing again.

The first thing that struck me when I sat down with Marlyn is that she’s authentic and doing what she’s supposed to do—helping people live healthier, happier lives. Before I met her, I was sluggish due to my poor eating habits. After starting Marlyn’s plan, I had more energy and stamina throughout the day and lost 15 pounds in the first month and a half.
