Hi, I'm Anna
I'm an accredited Nutrition Health Coach with a passion for helping moms with
their gut health problems so that they can leave life without pain, struggle or
shame, that they can feel good in their body and finally gain the energy and vitality
they have been looking for.
I'm born and raised in the Republic of Georgia, a small country where people enjoy
cooking and living a very active social life. I moved to France when I was 12 years old and my eating habits changed.
.. from the good, healthy foods that I ate growing up in Georgia to the junk food diet of a typical
teenager. Several years later, I relocated to Los Angeles, where I currently reside with my husband and my 2 beautiful daughters.
I became keenly interested in food and nutrition when my first child was born in 2010,
and I started making nutritional changes in my life. Because of how much the
changes I made positively affected my own health, I decided to share the knowledge I’ve gained with other moms.
Because of my passion for living a healthy life, I’ve come to understand that my life’s purpose is to help other moms have a better life and heal themselves also. By sharing what I’ve learned, I hope to help others have a better life overall . . . . not just by eating better, but by taking a holistic approach to food, exercise, and all other areas of life, with the goal of living a long, healthy and happy life.
I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition* where I studied innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and many others.
I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including:
Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair of nutrition at Harvard University
Andrew Weil, MD, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
Gabrielle Bernstein, bestselling author and life coach
Susan Blum, MD, MPH, assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine
Mark Hyman, MD, founder of The UltraWellness Center
Geneen Roth, Pioneer of Emotional Eating and Empowerment, Bestselling Author
David Wolfe, raw food leader and nutrition expert
Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at New York University
Mark Bittman, food writer for The New York Times and bestselling author
