I'm Sarah, your honest and heart-centered non-diet dietitian specializing in holistic nutrition for wellness.
I hear you, moms and dads, families and children. Together we can assist young people onto a good path for life regarding nutrition, sports performance, and self-care.
Women and men, I see you trying to figure out all this "diet" and "nutrition" talk, and you are doing the best that you can. With my help we can sift through the useless stuff to get to the truth when it comes to food and your relationship with your body.
Older folks, I see you too! And it is never too early (or late) to begin to feed your body well, especially if you have high blood sugar, your lipids are out of whack, or you want to gain back mobility and ease.

Like most of us, my first job was working with food! I started out as a hostess at a restaurant in high school, moved on to working in many a kitchen after college, then worked within and advocated for local food system development throughout my 20s. As I worked as part of an organic farming collective and completed a long-distance hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, I slowly realized that what I really wanted to do was help people find lightness with nutrition and food by helping them understand nutrition better and putting it into context.
My training as a Registered Dietitian allows me to see the beautiful, intricate and miraculous ways our bodies support us and adapt to the stresses we place on them.
I live in Redondo Beach with my husband and two young kids. On the weekends you can usually find us riding bikes, surfing and playing in the waves, or running around at the park.
You can also find me teaching indoor cycling at the Center for Health and Fitness at Beach Cities Health District, every Tuesday from 12-1 pm and Thursday from 6-7 pm.
