A+++ dietician. Very patient and caring, and responds to my communications and needs very quickly and professionally. Highly recommended!
Ashley has been my personal trainer for 2.5 years and she is amazing! One of the biggest challenges for not only post partum moms, but working moms, is finding the time to exercise. Ashley's in home personal training service is perfect and she provides the flexibility many of us need! She has helped me stay motivated and I have never felt better, stronger, and more toned. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough and she makes working out fun! Ashley is one of the most dedicated and hard working individuals. As a Registered Dietician, Ashley provides nutritional expertise and can cater to all of your healthy living goals. I am so happy to have found Ashley and have been so impressed with her fitness routines, expertise, and dedication!
Tami is the best dietician i have ever worked with! I've been seeing Tami for over 7 years and I'm the healthiest I've ever been. I've gained muscle/lost body fat, my food plan is wonderful with lots of variety and I feel great. And Tami is always responsive to my texts and emails. I recommend her to all my friends and family. I couldn't be luckier to have found her.
Lauren is a talented dietician I had the pleasure of first working with 3 years ago. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend for anybody seeking support around weight and health concerns. Lauren provides a 'no-diet' approach and incorporates really exciting mindful eating education - preventing the typical yo-yo cycle created by short term diets. I continue to refer people to Lauren to this day because I know she can help, and she'll do so with her wonderful sense of humor and compassion.
