Live Zoom course

We all know someone in mid-life who suffers chronic disease, or is struggling with aging

Andrea is going through one of her most difficult times. Between the lockdowns, feeling cut off from friends and family, and trying to maintain some normalcy in these unprecedented times, Andrea has let her eating habits, and her health, go by the wayside.

Jacob, a man in his fifties who has eaten the Standard American Diet his whole life, was recently released from the hospital after having a heart attack. Jacob’s diet is heavy on meat and fat, while fresh fruits and vegetables are scarce. Jacob’s weight has crept up over the years—combine that with an occasional cigarette and it’s a recipe for disaster.

It’s all too easy to neglect our health when we are depressed or pressed for time.

The 30-day Plant-Based Wellness Kickstarter is an empowering and motivating group coaching program designed to provide you the education and knowledge you need to move toward a healthier, more plant-based diet. In 4 information-packed sessions, I’ll educate you using the latest research into how diet can affect risk for chronic disease. You’ll learn that it’s never too late to improve your lifestyle. You’ll also receive awesome bonuses to help you succeed, like weekly action plans, recipes, grocery-shopping tips, and personalized support in between sessions. Best of all, you’ll go through the program with others who are on a similar journey to optimal health and wellness.

Knowledge is your jump-start. Tools are your highway. Community is your insurance of success. Start today and turn back the clock from the inside out!

Common Questions

Do I have to go 100% plant-based on this program?

Although I consider a plant-based diet the gold standard in healthy eating, the amount of change you make during the program is entirely up to you! The program provides insights into the latest research regarding diet and health, useful knowledge on how to change your eating habits, and a supportive community of like-minded people. I give you the tools you need to make healthy changes to your lifestyle--you are in complete control of how much you implement!

Can I do individual coaching sessions during the Kickstarter?

The 4-week Plant-Based Wellness Kickstarter is designed to be a group experience that harnesses the power of a supportive community. However, I do offer individual coaching packages separately. You can read about my 1:1 coaching and sign up on the homepage.

Are the classes on-demand or on a schedule?

All of the coaching sessions are live and interactive. As such, we meet on the same day each week over webinar. For the upcoming course, we will meet every Monday afternoon in order to start the week with an action plan that goes with the educational module. This ensures you have the rest of the week to work on your action plan!

If I am not able to finish the Kickstarter, will I get my money back?

If you are not completely satisfied with your plant-based journey after the first week, you can get a 100% refund through our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. After the first week we regret that cannot offer any refunds.

I am mom to a chihuahua mix and a kitty cat. I was also blessed to care for an elderly special needs doggie until he went to the Rainbow Bridge in October 2019. My love of animals and our earth compelled me to go vegan in 2006 and it is still one of the best decisions I have made in my life!
