CERTIFIED HEALTH EDUCATOR & PERSONAL HOLISTIC CHEF
FOUNDER, KITCHEN OF LIFE
Jacksonville , FL – serving St. John’s County
Hi and welcome! I’m Laura and I started Kitchen of Life with a desire to combine my passion and expertise for transitioning to vibrant health through nutrition with my love of teaching in order to help others do the same.
Through my own health journey, I found that there was a gap between education and implementation in the nutrition and health coaching world.
With the Kitchen of Life program my aim was to fill that gap with an in-home service and provide individuals and families with the knowledge, tools and hands-on experience to elevate their health and minimize (or even eliminate) the symptoms of illness, disease, allergies, food sensitivities or bad choices/habits.
I am a health educator and personal holistic chef specializing in nourishing and healing foods.
I received my certification as a health educator from the world renowned Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, FL and hold a master’s degree in education from Manhattanville College.
On my own health journey, I experienced a period of illness during which traditional doctors were unable to help me or provide answers.
So I turned to the internet where, among a plethora of conflicting and confusing information, I finally found a local doctor who was familiar with my symptoms and diagnosed me with a simple lab test. The only problem was, there was no traditional cure. The holistic cure was for to “build my immune system,” the answer of how was unclear.
That’s when I learned the power of food as medicine.
Due to my unexpected and largely undiagnosed illness, I can relate to the slow progression of healing and the multitude of challenges that I faced “living outside the norm.” I progressed along the path from illness back to health, teaching myself, tirelessly researching and investing in an education at Hippocrates Health Institute.
All the while, I wished I’d had the help of mentor to guide me in my journey.
When I finally found amazing health and energy again, I created Kitchen of Life, to provide for others what I wished had been available to me and to help them shorten the learning curve to get back to vibrant health faster and with more ease and confidence.
The Kitchen of Life program helps to demystify the myriad of overwhelming and conflicting information, to uncover the realities behind food and its direct link to our health.
The educational component paired with the hands-on in-home element of the program inspires and empowers our clients and readers to help themselves regain control over their health, and their lives. Kitchen of Life tailors the dietary portion to the needs and comfort level of each client, providing a personalized, goal-oriented, experience.
I can completely attest to the reality that when we feel well it’s hard to stay on course. It’s when we don’t feel well we’d give anything to be back on that course. That’s why the foundation of the program is focused on education and understanding about how what’s on our plate ultimately and directly impacts our health.
No matter what we did yesterday or today, we should have the information to make our next choice one that gets us back on track and feeling our best.
