About Annie

Specialist in Autoimmune & Inflammatory Disorders

Autoimmune diseases run in my family, so it was not a surprise when I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in my late 20’s. It was devastating news. I went from being a super active, high energy woman to someone who could barely get out of bed in the morning. I was so overwhelmed with my diagnosis that I didn’t even think to consider how my diet and lifestyle could help me heal. Fast forward several years to a major career change from finance to nutrition. I started to learn about the connection between diet, lifestyle, inflammation and autoimmune disease. When I started to make my own changes and saw an incredible improvement in my own symptoms, I felt that I had to share my knowledge with others going through the same thing.

​One of the other major lifestyle changes I made on my journey was embracing Intuitive Eating. For years I had a very toxic relationship with food and let my weight and food choices dictate my happiness. Using mindfulness and body acceptance has made a profound impact on my overall well being, and I help all my clients learn the techniques to improve their lives as well.

“I want to share my knowledge and experience to help others”

“I could not be happier with Annie’s guidance in helping me forge a sustainable path to a healthier life. For many years, my relationship with food has been a difficult one— trying restrictive diets only to end up binging and feeling shameful. Since working with her, I feel like I have been able to change my lifestyle in such a positive way. Annie is also very knowledgeable regarding how my hormonal disorder (PCOS) interacts with my nutrition. My symptoms are starting to become more manageable and I am so grateful for Annie’s help.”

“I needed an experienced nutritionist to help with my chronic medical conditions. My quality of life was not what I was willing to continue living with. [Since working with Annie] I’ve noticed a sense of well being, improved sleep and improvements with pain and energy levels. I now have more energy and less pain, so I can enjoy more active time. Annie provides excellent feedback, education and is available for even minor questions and concerns during the whole process of working together. I would absolutely recommend her services.”

–Anetta M. of Redwood City, Ca

“Annie provides practical, realistic advice that is doable with my busy life and it feels like she has my entire well-being as a goal. Before meeting with Annie, I was in a nutrition rut and felt like I needed some guidance on small, nuanced changes. I knew I needed help both refocusing my eating plan as well as broadening options for meals and snacks. After working with Annie, I feel more knowledgeable as well as more in-tune with my body. I feel more comfortable and at ease knowing that there isn’t a right way or an easy out. I physically feel better as well. And I’m so grateful that I have Annie’s support and guidance!”

–Kari C. of Palo Alto, Ca

“Prior to working with Annie, I was getting migraines, fatigue, nausea, bloating, and indigestion often. I was unable to work, spend time with friends, and do active things with this happening so often. Annie helped me understand my trigger foods and now I have a better understanding of what I should avoid to have the best health throughout my life. Annie was easy to work with and answered any questions I had very quickly. Each talk was very informative as well. I got a lot accomplished working with her.”
