I can’t recommend Melissa highly enough, she is a gem. I have attended Melissa’s in-person cooking classes — she imparts her knowledge of foods and their storied histories and nutritional values with eloquence, insight and candor. Her dedication to educating her clients is impressive. Melissa identified aspects of my lifestyle and meal patterns which ultimately led to my slowing down, and integrating vibrant, delicious whole foods into my diet. Feeling healthier and much more energetic, I have since, referred Melissa to numerous colleagues to appreciate her talents and process.

Melissa is such a pleasure to listen to and learn from. She is very knowledgeable, scientific based and at the same time she is empathic and kind.  She is not someone that would impose on you, but makes sure that she finds a way to work with your lifestyle and personality.

I have attended her nutrition webinars and in-person cooking classes, and have always left with a sense of balance and ease. Her recipes are simple, unpretentious and delicious. I have learned how to make small changes in my food choices and self-care that make a big impact on how I feel. I had never checked ingredients on a food label at the market, and I was in for a big surprise – now I know how to look past the hype, and choose healthful items with clean ingredients for my family. Because of Melissa, I have incorporated adaptogenic herbal teas in my day to day diet, and I love feeling more grounded and calm.

Melissa’s classes are fantastic.  She is not only extremely knowledgeable about the field of nutrition and integrative health, she is also a passionate educator.  You can feel the amount of thoughtful planning that she puts into everything she does.  I’ve attended both an in-person cooking class (pre-Covid) and a virtual “immune function” lecture series.  Her enthusiasm and desire to both educate and empower her students is amazing.  Melissa has helped me take greater ownership of my health by having me focus on a handful of concrete and manageable changes in my diet and lifestyle. These changes have made a noticeable difference in my digestive health and how I feel overall.  I have learned so much from Melissa!

Melissa’s course put me on a solid path for pursuing my nutrition goals – her skills at distilling and communicating important information into a user friendly and actionable format (including helpful reference guides) gave me the practical roadmap I have been seeking for lasting health.
