Christy loves being in the world of wellness and nutrition and is excited daily about the new things she is always learning! She believes plants are magic and medicinal, and that the concept of food as our fuel is real and life-altering.
Christy is a self-taught, enthusiastic and experimental chef, recipe developer, and food photographer, and a holistic Health Coach, certified through the Association of Drugless Practitioners. She completed certification in Integrative Oncology at the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona (2020) and Nutrition and Healthy Living at Cornell University (2019). Her initial training is from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC (2012) and The Raw Food Institute (2012).
Her journey into the world of nutrition is a personal one. In 2007 she began helping her mom through what would be an 8-year battle with cancer, and knows the nutritional choices they made and the green juice that her mom drank daily added years onto her life. She has been focused on women’s health, cancer solutions, and nutrition research for more than a dozen years, and has seen that nutrition and lifestyle can change the course of your health for the better, starting today.
She founded Little Green in 2012 and since then has led thousands of people through scores of cleanses, healthy meal delivery, and special programs like Reset, Restore, Rebalance through Bloom Yoga; Shift: Detox, Revitalize, and Embody Your Best Self through Flow Yoga; ReBoot through The Elements; and many more. Be the Change: Nourishing Ourselves Through Menopause is the most exciting and groundbreaking work she has done and creating it alongside her childhood bestie is a dream come true!
