I'm Marissa,

a new mom, wife and registered dietitian balancing a full-time career and motherhood while striving to stay healthy & happy.

I'm on a mission to help like-minded women find health and happiness in motherhood!

Mom life truly is the best life, but it’s also no joke! With my first baby, I went from career-driven, world traveler, health & wellness social butterfly to a housebound, sleep-deprived, poop covered, "too tired" for anything new mom. On top of that, my body felt totally different and I was utterly confused on what I was doing - was my baby drinking enough milk, when do I start pumping, how do I lose the baby weight, what workouts will heal my diastasis recti - you get the point, I was in total MOM SHOCK.

Even as an registered dietitian, I struggled in the first year knowing when, what and how to properly breastfeed, introduce solids to my little girl, or transition to a healthy toddler diet - and taking care of myself...HA, who has time for that with a new baby?! 

I BASICALLY LIVED OFF PIZZA AND ICE CREAM THAT FIRST YEAR!

It wasn’t long until my poor nutrition choices and frenetic new life took a toll on my health. I felt chronically weak, tired, and was constantly getting sick. During this special, fleeting time with my quickly growing baby, I felt utterly exhausted and knew I needed to make my health and nutrition a priority.

SO I WENT INTO ACTION MODE,

Researching anything and everything I could about nutrition and wellness for my baby and myself. I quickly realized that it didn’t need to be complicated, it didn’t need to be perfect, 

IT JUST NEEDED TO BE A PRIORITY.

Motherhood is truly the best gift out there, and I believe by making health & wellness a priority, we can achieve the energy and vibrancy to be the #momboss that lives within us! This is exactly what I aspire to provide through this website and community - simple tools, healthy tips and meaningful connections that nourish and inspire the journey of motherhood.

ARE YOU STUCK IN THE PIZZA AND ICE CREAM TRAP?

let’s talk about how you can work with me!
