What’s an ex stand-up comic doing health coaching?! Whaaaaaat??????!!!!!!!!
Good question. First of all, I wasn’t that funny. Let’s just say I’m no Ali Wong.
But second, I’ve always been obsessed with health and longevity.
And it’s paid off: When I tell people my age (40), they say, “Holy shit. What are you doing?”
If you’re wondering that, too (don’t worry, I’ll tell you exactly what I’m doing). Here are some other questions you might have:
Are you a doctor?
Nope. I’m a health & skincare Consultant. I help busy women in their 30s (or well on their way there) to lead a more FUN, healthy lifestyle.
I’m a girl who’s tried it and lived it–to save you the money, headaches, and legwork but not only that, I also got Harvard Certificates.
I’ve already figured out:
How to make healthy recipes that don’t take an hour to prep (and actually taste good).
How to pick your skincare from all the overhyped products and get what actually works.
The regular habits that go a looong way for your health (some daily ones and some quick fixes for when you need to get rid of that cold without those dirty pills).
Want to know how? C'mon, you know you do!
So what’s your story? What sh*t have you been through?
Oh, plenty. Intentional or not, I’ve spent the past 20 years of my life (aka my entire adulthood) trying to figure out how to keep myself young (fabulous… and funny.)
As an aspiring actor: I was desperate to stay young, so I could still get my "big break" before I became "irrelevant". I did ALL the diets: no sugar, no gluten, no booze, daily vegetable juices, vegetarian, vegan.
As a woman looking for "The One": I kept doing detoxes, when I wasn’t acting anymore, because I was single -- still am -- and whatever they say about beauty being on the inside, you can’t see that beauty from across the room. This constant pressure on us women, because we have eggs, dammit.
As a bad girl, I used to smoke 30 cigarettes a day - which increased to 40 on a night out - and drank my bodyweight in alcohol. I’ve had to do a lot of damage control.
None made me happy. Don’t get me wrong–the party years were a ton of fun but you always end up paying for it in terms of health (and looks). And in my strictest of health-driven years my skin barely looked great plus everything was so (over) controlled - and to be frank....dull.
The point is: I’ve been there, done that.
I’ve gone on booze-fueled benders and tried to starve myself into forever young… but in the end, I realised that moderation (SNOOZE) + balance were the key and that being healthy is a lifestyle.
I still eat chocolate. I love me a steak and some wine. I have a life. With friends. And you know what? It works.
So what? You think you’re perfect now?!
Haha! Definitely not! I'm just like you (unless, you’re a unicorn, then congrats). Embarrassing sh*t happens to me too:
- Hormones play a mean game on us: hair grows in strange new places; you gain a tache and goatee but go thinner on your head...Wtf?!
- You pee yourself doing jumping jacks
- Periods get heavier
- Grey pubes, any minute now....
- We dry up...and I could go on...
In short, it’s emotionally draining.
Obviously if you’re running from a dictatorship those examples are like "WHATEVS" but I’ll assume, just like me, you’re one of the lucky ones who lives a sheltered life, if so, then YEAH it’s FREAKING DRAINING and if you’re single wanting to find a partner (or in a couple and worried by the hot YOUNG nanny next door), then it can add an extra dimension of pain to all of this.
I'm also here to talk about those things -
And so, whether it’s about wrinkles or wine - acne or apple pie–it’s all about making intentional, well-balanced decisions.
Is this for me?
You’ve hit your 30s (or are wellll on your way there).
You want to look great, feel great, and just need some practical advice to get (+ stay) there.
You want to create a healthy LIFEstyle–emphasis on the LIFE part...which means that you want to be able to imbibe in an occasional glass or three (oops) of wine.
You want to be able to have your cake and eat it too (mmm cake).
You’re a self-described hippy who obsesses over the ingredients in every drugstore bottle and assigns all your hygiene to crystals and patchouli. (I’ve been that girl. I still like my crystals and coconut oil, but sometimes your skin needs a dose of science.)
You’re a member of PETA or similar. I respect PETA, it’s just that what I teach does not align with it so keep that in mind.
You're looking for a one-size fits all, super strict rulebook to follow to the letter.

Angie is awesome! I didn’t want to take any more antibiotics for my bacne and really didn’t know how else to keep it under control, ‘cause I had tried it all. But nothing worked!
Then one call with Angie made it clear to me that I’ve lived most of my adult life using products that were not helping me with my condition. I had quite a few 'Aha' moments. She has a lot to offer. She was able to clearly explain exactly what steps to take to get to the root of the problem.
What impressed me the most about Angie was that she walks the talk. She practices what she preaches. One hour with Angie and weeks later I still tap into the value packed session and can see how my perspective on so many things have changed (just after one call). If you are looking to lead a healthier & cleaner life, Angie’s your girl!

It’s so easy to get tangled up and forget that your own health is important, especially after having a kid, but it’s proved to be one of the best things I could do. After a couple of sessions with Angie I noticed I had more energy, and it was easier to get moving, and keep moving, even on low sleep ( which is major when you have a toddler who doesn't’)
I suffer from skin issues which gets very itchy in the winter and one day after a couple of sessions with Angie, I left the house without remembering to take my antihistamine, got home and the itchiness was barely noticeable which is AMAZING compared to before! I still need to take antihistamines but not every day. Which is beyond fantastic.
Given the logistics of being a single mom and running my own business, it was important that we stuck with simple things, so I love that we did just that.
The video calls were a lot of fun, very informative, and Angie clearly knows her stuff because any time I derailed her, she was still able to answer the question or knew where to look.
I don’t know what Angie did to me but she comes with delightful side effects, having her around was like giving myself permission to care again, on my appearances and eating the right foods, am even less grumpy come dinner time. It’s a big deal and am very happy I made the step to book the sessions.
Just knowing there was someone there I could talk to about health stuff meant I made better choices in the grocery store, and in deciding what to make for lunches and snacks.
This has been one of the best thing I’ve done for my energy levels, productivity and general sense of wellbeing. Thank you!

Angie helped me so much, I was diagnosed with vasculitis, it’s a life changing condition, which left me feeling depressed and anti-social. Angie took it upon herself to learn about my rare and complex condition.
Angie was very good at working around my needs and helped me how to better understand a few things within my medical care and to set some important priorities in my healing journey and beyond.
She gave me the boost I needed to eat healthier! You are what you eat after all!
The video calls were fun and personable, too.
I learned a lot about nutrition, Angie is very helpful and insightful. She created a well thought out plan for me to follow. She even used her contacts to get more information on Neuropsychology so I could have tools to empower myself in my rehabilitation. You can tell she cares, is knowledgeable and is amazing at making something potentially complicated, easy to understand.
I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you, Angie!

My face is SO glad I met Angie.
I have cystic fibrosis and for the past several years I’ve been taking a gene therapy which has been awesome for my lungs, but hell for my face. My facial skin became dry to the point of roughness.
It didn’t matter how much moisturizer I put on, either. I felt ugly and sad. But, I hesitated to seek help because most “experts” didn’t understand how all the different pieces (cystic fibrosis, gene therapy, aging, etc) fit together so they gave me confusing and unhelpful advice. Enter: Angie. Instead of confusing me with 100 brands I simply MUST buy, or impossible-to-follow diet recommendations, she made it simple. She recommended just one topical treatment for me to add to my skincare regimen. And, she gave me some recipes to help me get more of certain nutrients in my diet.
A few weeks later and my skin is soft, smooth, and YOUNG again! I’m eternally grateful I met Angie. An added bonus of working with Angie is that she is funny. If you receive her newsletters (if you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for?!) you know that she makes you laugh while handing down knowledge. Well she’s even funnier in person. All that laughing is good for my face and skin too.
Angie is is very clued up & passionate about nutrition but that’s not why you will go to her. Her unique ability is in creating simplicity out of the most complex things. Her strategies are like a formula put into easy, digestible steps.
She walks her talk and comes from a place of experience, sharing what she knows from small tips that create huge changes.
She is selfless in her mission to empower others; very strong at adapting herself to each of her clients. Her creative energy makes it so that she doesn’t just listen to you but has an innate understanding of what your needs are and helps transform what doesn’t serve you.
I am confident that having Angie in your corner will create a change in you, which you didn’t expect. I have had the joy to observe her as a friend over the years and I’m very happy to have her in my life and network.
