I knew I needed a change in my life but dieting never worked for me in the past. I would strive towards a “Magic Weight”…never being concerned about health or nutrition. I had “Cheat Days” which made me feel like I had let myself down. In a few days after hitting my goal weight, I was back to my old eating habits, quickly gaining the weight back.
When I was introduced to Kim’s program, I was kind of skeptical. I thought it was going to be just like my other attempts. But this time, it was different. This time, I was to be accountable for my actions. Every two weeks, Kim and I spoke about not just bad foods and good foods, but about the emotions that surrounded eating and how to alleviate stress that caused bad eating habits. This time, I had an easy to understand plan and a life line who didn’t just give me a list of foods not to eat. If there was an inquiry about a medical condition or heath issue, Kim would do the research and the foot work to put my concerns at ease and come up with options to help make confident health decisions.
Kim was always available by text or phone or email to answer questions and explain about nutritional values as well as about emotional advantages. She changed the way I thought about eating, nutrition, exercise and how these impacted my life. Nutrition wasn’t a chore and weight loss wasn’t a race. Not only did Kim help me achieve my weight loss goal but she helped me to understand how to change habits and mindsets…pretty much a new way of life. A way that wasn’t hard to sustain at all.
I recommend Kim and Nourish Your Healthy Life to anyone who wants not only to lose weight and keep it off, but to anyone who wants to gain from the value of nutrition. Kim will work with you to form a comprehensive and clear plan.

I hired Kim as my health coach because I wanted to lose weight, be more physically active without feeling exhausted and to feel more confident and comfortable with myself. Before I started my program I wasn't feeling my worst, but I wasn't feeling great either.
She kept me on track and held me accountable to my goals by texting me between sessions, sharing recipes and ideas that kept me on track and motivated. Always having an encouraging word when I was feeling discouraged. Some of the greatest changes I experienced were in my mindset, instead of thinking "I'll never be able to do this" to "I know I can do this and it will take time". There's no such thing as a quick fix.
While I didn't lose as much weight as I hoped, I did discover confidence in myself and my abilities and my clothes fit better, I was able to fit into a pair of my favorite shorts again. I learned how to lose weight healthily, and how to maintain it. I also learned a lot about my sugar cravings and how to get rid of them.
Kim is awesome, fabulous, amazing and wonderful, I just enjoy her and her constant encouragement. I would recommend her to anyone looking to better their health.

Before I started working with Kim my weight was more than I wanted it to be, my energy was very low and I had high cholesterol. I started the program because I wanted to learn about living a healthy lifestyle, healthy weight loss, healthy foods and how to prepare them.
Kim helped me to work toward my goals by connecting wtih me every two weeks, we would talk about ideas and strategies that would help me to achieve them. She encouraged me to try new things. Whenever I had a question she couldn't answer she would research it and let me know her findings.
Since being in this program a whole new world has opened up for me, my whole lifestyle has changed for the better. I have a clear understanding of the benefits of organic foods, I have lost weight and my cholesterol dropped from 400 to 225! I feel confident passing my new knowledge of healthy eating on to my family as well. My experience with this program was more than I ever imageined.
Kim loves what she does and it shows, she joyfully shares her knowledge with you. Not only did I gain so much knowledge but I got to know a wonderful and beautiful person. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to eat healthy and have an improved lifestyle.

I'm not one for taking the time to write a review, usually I give praise face to face. This is a special circumstance due to the type of service provided. This is special, delicate and very personally needed care. We all need it but aren't sure where to start, let alone who to really trust. It's difficult to get solid and individual consulting at a personal level but Kim provides just that. When we are ready for this type of care we are at a point where we have so many problems we are overwhelmed and unable to find the time or courage to seek help. Who is going to believe me and who is going to be able to pin point all of my issues?
I am writing this to say Kim is amazing. She has the knowledge first, second, she is very easy to talk to. She listens to everything with true conviction to help your situation, what ever it may be. Her approach is not demeaning or judgemental. After you've consulted with Kim you walk away feeling very reassured that you are truly on your way to wellness. Most importantly she teaches you the knowledge to get started immediately. It's not "you need to do this or that", it's if you're ready here's how you can start. It's not overwhelming, it's now an exciting adventure for your new life. It didn't happen over night, it took time to incorporate new things step by step, which is also how she helps by taking you on a path at your pace.
I am so happy to say that all the things I have incorporated in my life thanks to Kim have become an everyday joy. I feel wonderful, energetic and most importantly I simply feel beautiful again from the inside out.
I can go to Kim for any question I have small or big, there are no stupid questions, she will be there to answer anything you throw at her. I've even texted her while at the store to simply ask about a chemical she named I should avoid and I couldn't remember. Now that was luck in timing. But that's how she is; devoted and passionate about all of us and wanting the best for our bodies, minds and happiness with everything we consume.

Kim has done so much for me. Especially helping me to recover, heal and boost my immune system after a critical illness this past year. I have so many wonderful things to say it is so difficult to narrow it down to a short synopsis. So I decided, that's impossible and here are all of the life changing things that my friend, Kim, has cared enough to help me with and through over the past couple years.
Kim has helped me with cooking, recipes, and healthy food choices. She is continually adding to my repertoire of knowledge and list of super foods for immune support. Kim recommended an amazing supplement that has helped me a great deal. I work with small children and was continually getting ill. After my critical illness this year and subsequent lower immune system, it was even more important to stay well.
With Kim's help, I have done very well through eating healthy and supplements. I am forever grateful to her. She is very talented, knowledgeable, and passionate about her field. Most importantly, Kim is an amazing friend that cares so very much about my health and well being. Kim is always there to talk with me and support me whenever I need her. She always has an answer to my question, a new and exciting recipe to try and an encouraging word.
Other areas that Kim has provided information and helped me with are cleaning items to substitute in my classroom, dietary recommendations for my family and my husband with high cholesterol and education about detrimental ingredients and how they have negative impacts. I definitely shop differently than I did years ago. Everyone, myself and my family, reap the benefits thanks to all I have learned from Kim.
Writing this testimonial makes me realize how far I have come. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to go through this process, it's a journey and it was a very difficult one, at times, but Kim "held my hand" through it all and walked me back to good health with the help of my team of doctors as well. But when the doctors were gone or at least not there on a regular basis, Kim was ALWAYS there for guidance, support, encouragement, and lots and lots of amazing ideas to help me get back to a healthy me, boost my immune system and continue on this journey toward being healthy and staying healthy, which can be very tricky at times with all my issues.
Thank you Kim.

My top three goals when starting the six month program with Kim were to eat better, cook better and improve my overall health. Kim was able to help me work toward these goals by providing useful information for healthy food choices and recipe options. She provided me with emotional support and encouragement through the changes and set backs. She helped me to discover activity options for me and for my kids like meal planning, grocery shopping together and cooking what we buy. I always struggled with finding time for healthy options; Kim helped me to find simple yet quick meals and snacks that I could fit into my schedule.
The biggest tangible changes I noticed since beginning the program have been my understanding of how food can reduce physical pain and ailments. Also, my overall healthy feeling, looking and feeling younger. My friends, family, coworkers and customers have all commented on the positive changes.
I hold onto her words of not punishing myself in regards to food, if I eat something that I really want like a piece of chocolate, I don’t need to associate it with being ‘bad’. Having this attitude has helped to reduce the craving and the quantity I might desire. I’m satisfied with less, just a taste. When I look at my overall choices for the day or week and my behavior, I realize that I am making good choices and that I have a healthy relationship with food.
I fully embraced the changes in my diet and exercise, at times, but fell into old habits of not committing time to myself. Kim was always there to remind me how important I am, and not to lose focus on the benefits of making myself and my health a priority.
Kim practices what she teaches and lives a healthy lifestyle which allows her to know first-hand what changes are possible. She is always willing to find substitutions or accommodations that will best suit the individual’s needs.
I would describe Kim as kind, supportive, patient, non-judgmental, encouraging, knowledgeable, always learning and teaching. I would recommend her to anyone; women, men and children. All can benefit from her positive and supportive outlook on a healthier lifestyle. I especially encourage women that are having issues with hormones or chronic pain and fatigue.

I am so happy to have met Kim as a coach. Right at the outset, I found her to be very personable and endearing. She has a beautiful smile and I felt safe and relaxed the whole time. What also struck me from the beginning was that she was interested in the Whole Person with an interest in helping me balance my relationships, career, and spiritual life in addition to guiding me towards eating and exercising well. I was already a dancer and martial arts teacher, but I love how she was still able to get me to think out of the box and find other options of incorporating physical activity such as hiking.
She was also willing to explore various elements in my life that may have led to my psoriasis and provided support and encouragement that I am moving in the right direction. Her kind, uplifting words definitely made me feel good about myself and more positively determined to achieve my goals. Overall I found Kim to be a compassionate listener who is also knowledgable and passionate about her field of work. Because of this I felt confident she was capable of helping me develop a comprehensive program tailored to my needs.

My experience with Kim has been very enjoyable and rewarding with many breakthroughs in our sessions. I would have to say every time I am going through issues she has helped me to push through; it never fails, by the end of our session I see the results.
I’m sure at times I feel like I must put her through the ringer but she is an amazing listener and is able to help break things down into small, manageable steps so that it is not ever overwhelming for me.
I have been working with her for nearly one year now and will continue to work with her. I recommend Kim to anyone who would like to see results, even though it takes time, she has all the patience in the world. Things don’t happen overnight but in time you can see the results just like I have, not just in nutrition but also helping to balance out other parts of your life.
Thank you Kim for being a gift.
