Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: My umbrella might be Wholistic Health Expert, but in reality, I’m a "Soup-to-Nuts” food, nutrition and health professional in one. I’m ALL about good food and nourishment, with a long track record of cooking, catering, and being a private chef. I'm seasoned and especially enjoy counseling and teaching others how to find the ideal eating style for themselves ~ and then learning how to create healthy food that's delicious and satisfying without spending all day in the kitchen. Need gluten-free, vegetarian, paleo, weight loss, another special diet, international cooking styles or just plain delicious food that's healthier? Tell me what you're looking for and I’ll make it happen for you, whether you could use a personalized nutrition or wholistic health consultant, coach, cooking teacher, chef, caterer, healthy foods demonstrator, recipe developer, food editor or kitchen makeover artist. My hourly base rate is $70. For cooking classes, a 3-hour session is ideal for getting the most value out of our time together. With food/nutrition consults I normally start out with a 'whole person' assessment (normally about an hour) that can help us get to the root of issues and save time in the long run. Feel free to message me, so we can set up a time to connect and customize what you need. I love being able to help people with their food, nutrition and health and enjoy eating again! I help clients get to the root of issues and improve their eating and nutrition so they can see results quickly, easily, naturally, economically. And we have fun doing it. I relish every opportunity to share my culinary skills, food, nutrition, and holistic health expertise with my clients. Whether they could use some of my handy, time/energy/money-saving shortcuts or help solving a stubborn, long standing health or kitchen problem. Sometimes, it's less about the food and more about how you're digesting it. Or preparing it. Or how you're 'nourishing' yourself. It's all connected. Let me help you connect the dots.

Nancy is an excellent chef. She was responsive, flexible and creative in working with me to come up with a wonderful menu for a group with wide-ranging food likes and dislikes. The end result was wonderful and so delicious. Everything was displayed beautifully. Even our pickiest eaters were pleased. Thank you Nancy for helping to make our event extra special. P.S. Best cheesecake crust I've ever had. And the hummus was out of this world.

Nancy was a true professional and led the group to a great feast with a birthday party! She is very informative and can appeal to the advances or beginner Foodie. I highly recommend her for any event.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My base rate is $70 per hour for cooking classes, nutrition and wholistic health services. Yet, because I offer a comprehensive selection of specialized food and services most chefs don't want or aren't able to offer, I generally do customize my food and menus. So, an initial conversation will enable me to really hone in on what you're looking for and allow me to better customize a menu and pricing that will work for all of us. I am generally open to working out a more economical project-based quote on group classes, especially with a series.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I find it helpful for both of us to have a brief phone call or meeting first, so we can communicate effectively to determine your needs and preferences. Then I am better able to customize something that works best for you, which is my preference. A brief chat about what you're looking for will save us tons of time and energy in the long run. To initiate the process, after our initial message, please text me with your name and email and a best time to talk. With personalized nutrition or holistic health counseling, we will save time, energy and money in the end with an initial assessment, often handled within 1-1.25 hours. This allows me to craft and deliver the best program that's geared to what you really need. Whatever I'm doing professionally, clients always get the 'full value' of my extensive food, nutrition, culinary, health and wellness training and experience. I'm honest, open, authentic, light-hearted and insightful.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My undergraduate work was done at Cornell University, with a Foods, Nutrition and Communications Bachelor degree. In addition to graduate Master's work in Adult and Community Education from the State University of New York, I've completed additional certification and training in healthy cooking, personalized nutrition, metabolic typing, Gut health, holistic psychotherapy and I'm also an ordained Minister of Healing.
