About Paula

Nutrition is the foundation of health, but modern lifestyle and environment can make achieving real health impossible for many. The reasons for this are endless…Lack of knowledge and understanding, marketing gimmicks that cause confusion, unrealistic expectations, lack of self awareness, overwhelming life circumstances, excessive stress, genetic issues, dependence on modern medicine, financial barriers, and especially the loss of hope that vital health is actually achievable.

I help women overcome fatigue and chronic health challenges through nutrition and lifestyle interventions.  Addressing personal environment, including foods, exercise, sleep, stress, medications, personal care, cleaning products, personal habits is necessary to clear the roadblocks that keep the body from health.

I’m the creator of The Female Energy Equation™ a 12-week program where women create their blueprint for sustainable energy and health at 40 and beyond. I also offer private consulting for my VIP clients. My goal is to help you to build the nutrition and lifestyle that works for you, allowing you the freedom to enjoy life to the fullest! 

My Story

The roots of my passion for nutrition and movement run deep. I grew up in South Louisiana alongside my identical twin sister, where we were steeped Cajun culture… we love good food, dance, our faith, and revel in joie de vivre (the joy of life). As a teenager when my sister and I were experiencing the effects of all that good food coupled with sugar and processed foods, my Aunt Violet, our dance instructor, advised my mom to limit our sugar and junk food intake. That intervention was the catalyst that sparked my passion for nutrition and my career as a dietitian. While studying nutrition in college I became an aerobic instructor and personal trainer in a hospital-based wellness center. My passion for wellness through nutrition and movement became firmly rooted. After graduate school and my internship, I began my career as a clinical dietitian. After many years in the healthcare system I felt unfulfilled and found myself longing to return to my roots.  I began experiencing health challenges of my own in my mid-30’s.  I was fruststrated with the healthcare system and the lack of answers it had for me, so I began to return to my roots in wellness and discovered Functional Medicine. I began my private practice in January 2013 and have since helped hundreds improve their health through nutrition.
