Meet Your Coach, Stesha
I’m a lot like you – I’ve struggled to find balance with food, hormones, and training my entire life. Through high school and college I suffered from an eating disorder and exercise addiction which led to hypothyroidism and irregular periods – all in the name of fitting society’s mold of what it meant to be ‘fit’ and ‘healthy’.
Fast forward to when I found the empowering yet addicting sport of CrossFit – I was still obsessed with my body and the way it looked, but this time my focus was on getting strong and more proficient with this new sport. Long story short, I suffered again with hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, and PCOS – I felt like a hormonal dumpster fire.
And although I never wish these struggles upon anyone, overcoming them has given me the unique experience and insight to help you in your own battle against your inner demons.
My personal experience in overcoming mindset, hormonal, and behavior issues, along with my scientific background in Chemical and Biological Engineering gives me a unique perspective when coaching. Not only do I understand the principles of metabolism at a cellular level, but I show you how to take advantage of them through simple, yet effective daily actions. My own journey with nutrition has evolved into a passionate coaching career that I can’t wait to share it with you!

Why Work with me?
Having the opportunity to work with you is an honor. Knowing that I contributed a small part to help you achieve your goal or reach a new PR you never thought possible makes it all so worthwhile. Since becoming a coach, I’ve never stopped learning whether it is improving quality of life through nutrition and recovery or helping to improve your relationship with your body and food, there is so much to learn and absorb as a coach – another reason I find this job so fulfilling! Working with people like you on a one-on-one basis to overcome your most limiting health, nutrition and mindset barriers, is the most rewarding experience I have ever had.
I believe everyone has the ability within themsleves to succeed in whatever it is they want, but with the help of a coach to guide them and keep them accountable, the sky is truly the limit! As a nutrition & health coach I help you understand that success in anything requires more than just a fleeting spurt of motivation. Rather, success is a result of unending grit and persistence in spite of all the setbacks. Through my daily actions and mindset, I am able to provide the example people need in order to pursue and achieve their epic goals in nutrition, health, performance, and aesthetics. I also know that staying “real” with you by having the tough conversations can have a major impact on how quickly you will achieve your goals.Your goal is my goal and I will always go great lengths to make it work for you!
