The Resolve Health and Fitness Story

​Twelve years ago I didn't know how to pronounce the word "vegan" (no joke, I had to go to an online dictionary to hear it pronounced) and I had never heard the words "whole foods, plant-based".  But I came across an article in the Wall Street Journal that mentioned a book called The China Study.  I was intrigued and checked the book out of the library.  It changed my life. I was instantly convinced that the way I was eating would put me at a much higher risk for disease and I resolved right then and there to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet.  Since becoming whole foods, plant-based I lost 10 pounds and a few chronic ailments I had went away. Now I want to help others learn what I did. Thus, the birth of Resolve Health and Fitness. 

I am licensed as a Food for Life instructor with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).  I am also a Certified Personal Trainer with a specialization in senior fitness from the National Association of Sports Medicine.  I hold certificates in Plant-Based Nutrition from eCornell University and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies; and in Plant-Based Cooking from the Rouxbe School. With over 8 years teaching experience and my background and expertise in both plant-based cooking and fitness training, I am uniquely positioned to help you meet your health goals from start to finish!  Email or Call/Text me to find out how to begin.
