Welcome to nourishME! LLC and the Healthy Hands Cooking program! I am your local resource for kids healthful cooking classes, private parties, after school programs, Girl Scout cooking for badges, school break & summer break camps, and cooking demonstrations.

I’m board certified in holistic nutrition and a certified Healthy Hands Cooking instructor. Helping children and families establish nutritious eating habits has been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had and I’ve now pledged to make it my life’s work. My goal is to empower your children by engaging and inspiring them to make healthful decisions when it comes to how they fuel their growing bodies.
After spending almost a decade as a landscape designer and project manager, I left the field of horticulture to nurture my ever-growing love for wholesome foods. A few years later I became board certified in holistic nutrition and haven’t looked back. Since then, I’ve helped many families develop and maintain healthful eating habits. Through this period of growth, I quickly realized that I wanted to focus on childhood nutrition with the hope of reaching as many children as possible.
In my classes, your children will learn basic cooking skills, the importance of good nutrition, and taste a wide variety of foods in a creative, fun, and supportive environment. Mounting evidence shows that children who have nutritious eating behaviors modeled for them are more likely to maintain a healthful lifestyle throughout their lives. I want to see every child reach their fullest potential while ensuring that their diet and lack of basic cooking skills are not limiting factors. It would be an honor to help the creative chef in your child bloom.
Please feel free to browse the variety of classes we offer and to contact me with any questions. I'll be updating the website regularly with new classes as I secure venues, but if you don't see a class scheduled and are interested in hosting one, please let me know! Lastly, as part of my effort to give back to the community and populations in need, please know that a portion of your child's registration fee will go towards providing a free monthly class to children in local underprivileged communities. Together, we can make such a positive impact on the lives of so many children!
