You deserve care that gets to the root of your PCOS symptoms so you can reach your goals.
Not more pills, potions, and pressure to fixate on the number on the scale.
I'm Kendra, a dietitian, yoga teacher, and aromatherapist. I help women with PCOS feel happy, healthy, and feminine. All without restrictive diets and extreme exercise.
There's no shortage of confusing, conflicting, and overwhelming diet info out there. Social media, books, magazines, TV, everywhere you look someone's telling you what you shouldn't eat. Some say you have to cut carbs if you want to feel better with PCOS. Others say you gotta get rid of gluten, dairy, soy, and sugar if you ever hope to get get your hormones under control.
Then there are those who'll tell you Keto's the way to go. No, paleo. Mmm mmm, you should try intermittent fasting. But these one size fits all rules and plans don't fit your life or likes.
You deserve unique-to-you support. 'Cause you, my friend, are one of a kind.
Weaving together mindful movement, delightful and nutritious food, aromatherapy, and self-care practices, I help women address their PCOS symptoms and fertility concerns with joy, ease, and simplicity. 'Cause the journey to health shouldn't be filled with deprivation, confusion, or drudgery.
I promise, you won't catch me recommending:
counting calories or grams of carbs, fat, or protein.
giving up your favorite food
working out till you fear you're gonna pass out or throw up, or
living off of meal replacement shakes, bars, or smoothies
Just not my style. And honestly, none of the above leads to long lasting health or happiness. They just leave you feeling hungry and anxious. Also, not my style.
Ready for clarity, pleasure, and freedom?
Have a look around the site. I'm sure you'll find blog posts and videos full of tips to help you feel good again. And if you want to learn more about working with me, don't be afraid to reach out. I've helped women lower their cholesterol, balance their blood sugar, lower their testosterone, prepare their bodies for pregnancy, and enjoy food again. I'd be honored to do the same for you.

“Kendra was able to determine the reason I always failed at dieting and gave me simple and manageable tips to help improve the way I eat. I still use these [tips] today. She cared for me outside of sessions. She sent emails checking in or researched things she believed would help. Kendra is extremely easy to talk to and each session was very therapeutic.”

“Kendra was born to be a dietitian but never once did I feel like I was speaking to a stereotypical cookie cutter dietitian. She was able to take my very important latin diet and offered suggestions on how to incorporate my diet with my goals. She was also realistic and I still have her quote written on my chalkboard “Going to the extreme isn’t balance.” This is a quote I look at everyday no matter what change I’ve made to my lifestyle.
I can’t thank her enough for treating me like a multi-dimensional human being and not just another “fat girl that can’t control her eating habits.’
She was motivating and made me strive for a healthy lifestyle that didn’t have to look like “Instagram Health.’ Kendra was a ray of sunshine through the screen. It was nice to talk to such a positive person that liked me for me and didn’t try to change me in any way but rather worked with my strengths to help me with my goals.”
