|Live well, the ultimate goal. Wellness does not come just from eating healthy foods. Wellness is a state of being, a synergy of mind, body and soul. We want our clients to realize that wellness deserves to be their priority. Health and happiness go hand in hand. Through good food, positive energy and mindfulness, we can transform our outlook on the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There is no downside to being kind to oneself. Feed yourself good food, vibrate on only the highest of frequencies and remember the importance of a total state of wellness.|
Nourish your body.
We believe that "eating healthful" has nothing to do with dieting. In fact, we do not promote dieting or diet fads. We believe in empowering you to be conscious of what you're putting in your body, with a focus on whole foods that have a positive impact on how you feel and perform. We hope to open your eyes to a variety of new options, full of essential nutrients, without totally eliminating your favorite foods. We want you to feel good about what you're eating, what you're feeding to your family and the habits you're creating.
Feed your soul.
Our team is determined to empower you. We want you to be the best version of you, because being well is not just about eating healthy and exercising, it's about creating a new lifestyle focused on healthy habits that impact the body and mind. We'll help you map out a vision for overall wellness, with gradual adjustments in your daily routine, including implementation of self-care and help you focus on understanding your body's cues. It's a whole-body positive experience.

"Andrea looked at me as a whole person. She took my health, stress level and lifestyle into consideration, and guided me to make healthier choices. She listened, asked great questions and included ways in which my family could be supportive on my journey."
"I'm a relatively in-shape, 43-year-old, Krav Maga Instructor who was having a rough time breaking my physical plateau. I recognized that my workout and training intensity needed to change slightly, due to a slowing recovery time... getting "older" sucks. So it was time to make a small incremental, achievable dietary modification. Enter Andrea and recipe for the coconut, peanut butter, chocolate cookie thingy, bye-bye to my normal handful of chocolate-covered peanuts, and bye-bye to 6 pounds in 10 days!
My approach was to make a small change that ultimately wouldn't upset my daily routine, yet result in the physical change I was looking for -- a weight loss that I can see in the mirror and feel in my clothes.
Simple modifications can work -- just do it -- commit to it, and see results. No joke!"
"Thanks to Andrea's coaching, I'm almost diabetes-free! My Hemoglobin A1c went from 12% to 6.8%, and I'm no longer starving myself. EMPOWER even helps those with medical assistance, and will work with you to achieve your goals despite lack of insurance coverage."
"I am so happy with the results thus far, and am so grateful for the coaching assistance from Andrea along the way. I still have more work to do, but with the guidance from my "coach" this goal can and WILL be accomplished."
"Correct Nutritional Guidance is the most important piece of the HEALTH PUZZLE. Each person needs proper nutrition for their individual NEEDS, Calories In vs Out, Nutrient Balance for Emotional and Physical daily functioning. Take the Nutritional Guidance from someone who has spent hours upon weeks upon months and years thoroughly studying the body, food, diets, and applies that knowledge to help you.
Empower Nutrition & Wellness is VMMA’s Choice for Nutritional Guidance!"
"Ran by some of the best dietitians in the field, EMPOWER Nutrition & Wellness will shift you away from your old lifestyle and truly empower you to harness your inner fire to understand and do what it takes to transform your life with better nutrition. This knowledge and supportive team will be there for you every step of the way."
"So kind and wanted to tailor a plan for me. No pills, no scam diets, just a sincere attitude to want me to take control of all aspects of my life. You don't get that kind of service just anywhere anymore. Other places wanted me to subscribe to some gym or take a bunch of supplements. I wish I would have found this team sooner."
"As a youth ice hockey coach, one of the most neglected and difficult things to do is make sure the players and their parents understand how to eat properly before they get on the ice, teaching about proper hydration, the proper ways to recover and how to create a healthy lifestyle that will ultimately improve their performance. Andrea went out of her way to put together some information for the entire organization as well as making herself available for one on one consultations and further guidance. She truly wants to share her wealth of knowledge with others, so they can learn how to make better choices with regards to their health and wellness."
"If you are looking to get in better shape, or improve your health and general wellbeing than Empower nutrition and wellness is the place to go. They take the time to ask the right questions and actually listen to my answers. This personal approach allows me to tailor my goals to my life. They have helped me to gain a better understanding of nutrition and how it impacts my life, which has helped me to get in the best shape I have been in years.
As their name implies they truly do "empower" you to get healthy and understand how to stay healthy."
"Very comforting atmosphere and relaxed in the consultation. I really appreciate the personalized care to help me get better and feel better but most importantly - to STAY better. This is the type of care that feels genuine."
I am a college athlete who has worked with other dietitians in the past. The EMPOWER team gave me the tools to succeed in changing the behaviors and controlling the environmental triggers that lead me to bad habits. These non-diet dietitians truly helped me achieve that competitive edge, and not just reach my goals, but become the athlete I wanted to be.
