Hi, I'm Tamara! I am a certified nutrition coach and have been a social worker for fifteen years. Through my own journey of improving my nutrition, I learned that all the quick fix diets and gimmicks we are bombarded with do not work because they only focus on food and do not consider other factors that can impact your nutrition, such as stress, sleep, mindset, and daily habits. That is why my coaching not only focuses on food, but other factors in your life. I love working together as a team to overcome barriers and to find a plan that will be sustainable for the long run and not be just a quick fix. I have seen how improving your nutrition can have a positive impact in all areas of your life and I want to be able to share that with you!

After traveling Europe for six months, where I gained close to 30 pounds, I knew I wanted to lose some weight so I could feel comfortable in my body again.
With the help of my husband, I began learning about nutrition and weight training. Through the years I kept up with my nutrition and fitness through weight lifting and CrossFit. Then in 2015 I began competing in bodybuilding competitions. It was at this time I began to experience firsthand how improving your nutrition not only can shape your body physically, but the process of improving your nutrition can improve your mindset which can have such a positive impact on your life. This is what prompted me to get into nutrition coaching so that I can help others experience the same positive effects I've had from improving my lifestyle through nutrition.

“ Over a year ago I made a decision to ask Tamara to help me with my nutrition, little did I know that it would be life changing. She set me up with macros but she also counseled me every week, diving deep into the underlying issues and setting new positive goals. I have successfully lost 45lbs, reversed into maintenance and have a better relationship with food. We had weekly meetings but she was always available when I had questions come up, caring and helpful, supporting me through the hard times. I am stronger and happy. I think everyone would benefit with Tamara as a coach! ”LyndallClient
“ I gained a ton working with Tamara!! This was my first time working with a nutrition expert. I am a longer term gym-guy, in my 40's with the goal of maintaining and progressing my fitness level. Tamara was knowledgeable and supportive. I immediately felt at ease. We spoke about both nutrition and some of those internal things that drive our decision making. We talked about self acceptance while still getting after it. With Tamara's help I was able to reach my fitness goals, and felt both educated and energized about nutrition. ”PhilCustomer
