Nutritionist and Menopause Specialist
Hi there. I'm Anna.
I'm 49 years old, and I'm still going through perimenopause, although it took me years even to know what that meant. Doctors disregarded my symptoms and prescribed me different medications. I knew I didn't want just a "quick-fix," so I embarked on a journey of exploration - one that led me into a path of searching for evidence-based information, resources, and training, so I could find not only the answers and solutions for my own issues but also become someone who can do the same for others.
Today I help women like me, who aspire for great quality of life, healthy lifestyle, and sense of satisfaction with themselves, but are overwhelmed by misinformation, societal and environmental pressures, and on top of it all, unfamiliar physiological changes that are preventing them from achieving their lifestyle goals and living their fullest and most beautiful self.
In light of all these challenges, I have developed a method that has helped me and my clients take control of managing their health, feel comfortable in their own skin, and fuel their bodies and minds to support the vibrant, active, and healthy lifestyles that they desire and deserve.
It's time to put an end to restrictive and unsustainable fad diets, overtraining, and simply not knowing what is happening or where to begin.
I help women...
Improve their body composition without dieting
Incorporate a healthy lifestyle with realistic goals
Manage symptoms associated with perimenopause
Empower their minds so they can achieve long-lasting results
I offer a complete program with an individualized nutrition and lifestyle counseling that empowers my clients to implement realistic and detailed strategies and to take proactive steps to overcome the challenges of perimenopause and beyond so they can finally enjoy the valuable assets that come from the rich experiences and wisdom they've acquired through the years.
It's my mission to empower women to see their own greatness and true worth.
I want each woman to see midlife as an opportunity to commit to themselves and become their best version - someone who is confident, unrestricted, and unfettered...
...a Fearless FEMME.
