Hi there,

I'm Gina, a registered dietitian and master of human nutrition.

I believe that lasting health doesn’t come from diet rules and restrictions, but instead from empowering yourself to be in control of the choices you make. 

Just like you, I was overwhelmed with all the nutrition information out there… should I count calories, commit to keto, dabble in Whole30, attempt low carb, go all out vegan…..? Alongside the anxiety of choosing the right eating style, I was constantly on an emotional rollercoaster of motivation and excitement then disappointment when I couldn’t stick to it.

Food became a daily battle that I was losing.  I wanted to know the truth, “What is the best diet to follow… and how do I stick to it?”

 

So, I went to school at Eastern Michigan University that is recognized for having one of the top dietetics programs in the country. After five years of education and passing the exam to become a registered dietitian, I still wasn’t satisfied. I needed more answers. So, I continued on and received my master's degree in human nutrition. I was armed with the nutrition knowledge I needed and ready to share it with the world. 

 

As I dove into private practice, I was so excited to create top notch nutrition plans for my clients.  Every plan was strategically designed for each person. When they left my office full of motivation and a pep in their step, I was sure they would come back thanking me for their life changing transformation. 

But when they came back, they confessed how many times they gave into their ‘bad’ foods list.  This motivation - confession cycle continued with nearly every single client. 

 

Solving this problem became a deep passion and eventually led me to publish the book, Mastering Mindfulness. This book was so well received and transformative, it became the cornerstone of my work that has been presented for notable organizations and conferences nationwide, such as the American Junior League, Utah Worksite Wellness Conference, and the world renowned Cal-a-Vie Spa Havens. 

 

I currently practice functional nutrition at Cal-a-Vie Spa Havens and serve as nutrition director for the non-profit organization Urban Street Angels. Mastering Mindfulness continues to spread its message in inspiring and empowering those to take back control over their food, cravings, and their health.
