Welcome, and thanks for being here!


As a Personal Plant-Based Chef, I prepare healthy, nutrient-dense meals for busy people that want to thrive but simply don't have the time to cook often.


As a Culinary Coach, I teach people how to prepare healthy, nutrient-dense meals for themselves.


Whichever you prefer,  I’m here to help!


Personal journey:

My previous career had me traveling on the road and working long hours. I didn’t take the time to prepare healthy meals and defaulted to carry-out and convenience foods. Sound familiar? This totally caught up to me and as a result, I struggled with digestive issues for years. I also found out I had thyroid cancer! It was time to make some major lifestyle changes. 


In 2013 I decided to make a career change and went back to school to complete my Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Certification. This amazing experience gave me a holistic foundation to wellness, coaching skills along with some cooking skills. I was eating more healthy, nutrient-dense foods and less processed food which totally helped my digestive issues. I realized that “Food is Medicine” and gained a strong desire to share this knowledge with others. In addition to coaching, I obtained my Plant-Based Chef Certification which has been an amazing compliment!

I created Kitchen is Love as a way to help empower others on their journey to healthier eating through plant-based recipes and meal prep inspiration.  


I would love to share my passion for plants with you! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here.

My Philosophy

The kitchen is the heart and soul of a home, a place where loved ones and guests migrate - where we make daily decisions to either fuel our bodies with nutrient dense foods or consume processed foods that can make us feel bad.
Cooking is an act of loving kindness. Every decision made can have an impact on ourselves, our loved ones and on the planet. I’m here to help empower you to make healthier decisions for the greater good.
