Let’s change the face of healthcare, together.

My mission is to empower as many people I can to take back their health and reinstate well-being as the norm. With the rates of chronic disease skyrocketing over the years in the Western world – and most of which completely preventable – the message of prevention + wellness is needed now more than ever. In addition to my one-on-one and group work with clients, I also work in collaboration with others to make a greater impact on this world – through partnerships, speaking, workshops, and corporate wellness. If you’re interested in stepping out of the status quo and truly making a difference, I’d love to join you.

Nutritional counseling & health coaching are a missing piece of today’s health paradigm. I partner with  heart-centered integrative and functional medicine doctors and chiropractors to support their patients using highly targeted, personalized nutrition protocols and holistic lifestyle coaching. I love working in this way because collaboration yields the best results – for your patient and your practice. Win – Win.

Options include packages of nutrition consults, detox and nutritional protocols, program creation, and nutritional resources such as dietary guidebooks, food charts, meal plans with recipes, and more.

“As a Functional Medicine Practitioner and Physician, finding a Functional Nutritionist to compliment my practice and someone I trusted with my patients was an incredibly difficult task.

I began working with Venessa a little over three years ago. Words cannot describe how highly I recommend her nutritional counseling and coaching services. The internet is filled with nutritionists and health coaches and finding one that truly understands so many of the intricacies related to diet, lifestyle changes and then delivering can be challenging.

Patients who need to make dietary and lifestyle changes often feel lost when it comes to this component of health. Venessa is the missing piece of the health puzzle. – Dr. Hagmeyer, Naperville Institute for Neuro Metabolic Solutions

One of my passions is spreading the word of wellness through speaking, education, and workshops. As a storyteller and performer for over 20 years, I have found that weaving storytelling and engaging an audience is a powerful way to communicate what can often be confusing, complicated, and serious topics – the topics of healthcare and nutrition.

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Venessa!  Her passion for health is so genuine and authentic.  

She lives and breathes it and she is on top of the latest studies and advancements.  

I am fortunate to have had her speak at my office and to a group of young women battling breast cancer multiple times.  Venessa is a warm and professional expert in health and wellness.” – Jessica K., Thomson Reuters, Gilda’s Club Chicago
