Meet Anna

Nutritionist and Menopause Specialist 

Hi there. I'm Anna.

I'm 50 years old and still going through perimenopause, with some symptoms I have learned to manage.

Like most women, I have my share of challenges in trying to find moderation in my life - coping with stress, managing time for myself and my family, and trying to find a balance between it all so I can also focus on the health of my body and my mind.

In light of all these challenges that started a decade ago, I have developed a method that has helped me and my clients get Lean, Strong, Nourished, and Confident by learning to fuel our bodies properly, optimize our movement routine, and by taking care of our minds so we can navigate through this time with ease.

  • Optimize their movement so they can save time and effort by focusing on the right types of exercises 

  • Manage their symptoms with evidence-based strategies and protocols

  • Set the right mindset so they can overcome their internal battles and keep moving forward.

On a more personal note...

I'm more than a perimenopause coach...

I'm a mom of four beautiful humans and 2 cats. I don't think the internet is evil because that's where I met my husband, a gentle soul who made me believe in love again.

We live in sunny San Diego County, where we enjoy the beach, picking avocadoes and limes from our backyard trees, going for hikes and bike rides, snuggling to watch a movie, and laughing at our cats' shenanigans.

I'm always busy with kids, cooking, and work, but I try to find "me" time at least once a day so I can keep my sanity! :)
