My Story


My passion for nutrition began in 2012 when I left my career on the "doorsteps" of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. You see, I was losing my health to my career. Can anyone relate to this?


My health was failing, I developed Hashimoto's Disease and was extremely anemic. I was trying to get my health "on track" while working 60 - 70 hour weeks. My health was getting worse and I wasn't getting any better. I now know, once you have an autoimmune disease, like Hashimoto's, your chance of developing a second autoimmune disease greatly increases, then leads to cancer. 

After leaving UPMC, I met Harriet, age 72 at the time. We began sharing our knowledge of whole-food, plant-rich nutrition and have been friends ever since. Harriet is now in her mid 80's and still swims, golfs, skis, walks, travels and leads a very active life every day.

I can say with complete confidence that this new way of flooding my body with plant-rich nutrition saved my life! My Hashimoto genes have been "turned off" and I am healthier now than I was in my 20's. My passion is to share my story and give back the quality of life that has robbed so many people . 

I daily teach the power of whole-food, plant-rich nutrition as a career. I work, one-on-one, in person and virtually, with corporate clients, individuals and in groups. To get started please click the button to schedule your free consultation. I would love to inspire you on your health journey!

In the spring of 2022, Marla will become a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach.
