Growing up in Germany, she values her "outside looking in" perspective and can help her clients benefits from knowledge she gained living and learning both in Europe and the United States. She dedicates her work to her father, who died last year of liver cancer and unfortunately never believed her that a change in nutrition would be the one thing he could do to save himself. Teaching people that poor eating habits lead to obesity and disease is the most important thing for her.
