A little about me. I am Francesca. Mother, wife, friend and sister.  Cancer Survivor.  Italian born, Brazilian raised, German married. The gorgeous Pacific Northwest is home where I share my everyday joy with my husband Carsten, our son Leo and Cher, our golden-chow rescue dog. Being healthy is a journey.  It takes small and big changes but with the satisfaction to know that tomorrow you will be better than today.

I am a regular person with regular goals like you.

Prior to my work in the wellness industry, I was a marketing executive working in the luxury lifestyle industry.

Many people who recover from cancer want to forget about it and move on with their lives. Others feel the calling to help others get well or remain well.  I chose the latter.

As a Health Coach, I do not diagnose or prescribe. Rather, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals.

I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Program.

During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to a healthier you” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences and goals.
