My worksite wellness programs provide nutrition and health information that can help companies and organizations improve the health of their employees, reduce health care costs, and create employee loyalty. I teach seminars and weight management sessions which are usually conducted over a lunch hour. I can customize seminars for your needs and can provide a series of classes or a single seminar. I am available to attend health fairs, answer employee nutrition and health-related questions, prepare a healthy cooking demonstration, or conduct mini nutrition seminars. Contact me for more information or to schedule a seminar.

Example of some of my seminars:
Does this sound familiar? It’s 3:00 and you’re either nodding off at your desk or working frantically to meet a 5:00 deadline. A common response to both scenarios is to look for a quick pick-me-up to get through the day. Perhaps you head to the break room for a large coffee drink or a vending machine for some snacks. Research has uncovered new information about energy levels, stress, nutrition, and snacking. Come learn how to fuel your body for maximum energy and optimal health. We’ll also discuss how stress leads to an expanded waistline and what you can do about that!
