Meet Anna

Nutritionist and Menopause Specialist 

Hi there. I'm Anna.

I just turned 50 (midlife here I come), and I'm still going through perimenopause, with some symptoms that 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 finding a balance between what's healthy for my body that's ALSO healthy for my mind among others.

In light of all these challenges, I have developed a method that has helped me and my clients take control in managing our health, feeling comfortable in our own skin, and fueling our bodies and our minds so we can live the life we deserve to live - feeling good about ourselves.

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. It's time to empower ourselves so we build resilience when things get tough. And while most of us have prioritized others for so long, it's time to prioritize ourselves.

Improve their nutrition and eating habits without dieting

Develop self-efficacy skills to sustain a healthy lifestyle 

Manage symptoms associated with perimenopause and aging

Empower their minds so they can transform not only in the physical level but from within 

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.

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! :)
