I Love Being In Menopause,

I  Feel Better At 62 Than I Did In My 40’s

I hear so many women 50 and over say they think it is too late to make changes in their life. Many think they will never regain their energy or feel good in their body again.

I believe we can regain our health. Why do I believe that? Even though I was eating healthy whole foods, I was 52 years old and in pain 24/7, I felt defeated and was falling into a deep depression. Once I started to look at all aspects of my life, a holistic view, I then started to uncover what needed to change.

I can say, I feel better at 62 (turned 62 August 2023) than I did in my 40’s.

Our bodies are amazing and given the right holistic support, they can heal.





Are you ready?

Imagine having another woman to talk to in confidence, who will guide you with compassion.

Imagine waking up, feeling rested and energized, walking with confidence, an extra spring in your step, your beauty glowing from the inside out and feeling vivacious.

Imagine being able to enjoy food without feeling deprived or experiencing digestive upset and bloating.

Imagine being empowered to set healthy boundaries for what is important to you.

I see each woman for who she is, the journey of your life experiences, there is no one size fits all solution. I guide a select group of women to provide very personalized experiences, my advice is not based on current popular trends, it is based on the uniqueness of you.

I’m here to listen, no judgment, I’m here to support you.

Imagine how amazing your life can be when you have the energy to participate each day in the activities you love.

Sweet Words

For me the greatest honour is my clients trusting me with their health. I feel so blessed when they take time to express in words how I have helped them. I love what I do and why I do it.


I have been working with Connie over the past year to do battle with my IBD. With patience Connie has helped me understand how different foods affect the body. We started with some small dietary changes, so that I didn’t become overwhelmed with doing a complete food change over; which we all know does not end well for most people. 
I now eat in a way that works better for my system. I am now empowered to keep control over my IBD rather than it being empowered to control me!”


Having just turned 44 I knew that my body was changing. I was having horrible mood swings and always felt tired and lethargic. She helped me realize the importance of attitude, as well as diet makes all the difference.

I had a bit of a crisis last fall and with her advice we quite simply changed the WAY I was eating and how I was eating. Low and behold my tummy trouble reduced AND I started to shed the weight! I’m down 15 pounds in 4 months!

Who knew that actually eating More food would help me lose the weight! Well, Connie did! Thank you so much for helping me feel and look better than I have in years!


I would like to thank you for all of your advice and knowledge that you have given to me over the past few years. Thanks to you I have completely changed the way I eat and use food.

Just by taking baby steps with your guidance along the way, I have made huge changes.

I LOVE how I feel, and I am so excited about food, cooking, and coming up with new recipes.

You are an inspiration to me and I thank you for everything that you have done for me...xoxo!!!


I met Connie at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. I was very insecure and nervous about being back in school at the age of 53. I would always introduce myself as a “high school dropout”.

One day, Connie asked me if I would like to join her for dinner after class. I agreed. She asked me, “Why do you always put yourself down”?
I didn’t even realize that I did that!!!! I was just telling my story. Connie brought to light that I need to be gentle with myself, forgive and love myself and do the best I can...

Her words of encouragement are etched in my mind especially when I feel down. It was that simple gesture that makes a HUGE difference in my life."

Connie and I have been friends for almost 19 years. She’s a very caring person and committed to her work.

Just recently, I asked her for advice for my sleeping problem. She gave me many insights and helpful advice. She shared her knowledge with conviction and empathy. She gives me many inspirational ideas and perspectives that I found refreshing and empowering.

I actually think of her as more than a Nutritional Practitioner, she can also be a life Coach."

Melody Balane

Connie is extremely thorough and diligent. I trust her with my nutritional and holistic needs. She is not afraid to admit if she does not have an answer to something, but is extremely resourceful in finding out the answer.

What can I say? Connie is a Western witch, alchemist, natural beauty consultant, holistic nutritionist all wrapped in a cute package :) Don't let her sweet, and quiet nature fool you, she is a fierce powerhouse! I trust her with my holistic nutrition and skin care needs, and highly recommending you connecting with her if you are curious!"


I have known Connie for a few years now. Connie‘s most noticeable quality as a nutritionist is being non-judgemental. Connie‘s genuine belief in her work translates into a very holistic approach. Not only does she look at the “scientific facts “ of nutrition, she respects the emotional, mental and “spiritual” views of an individual. She can then incorporate her knowledge of nutrition to match her client’s lifestyle. Connie will complete extensive research on various modalities, in order to find the best approach to a client’s journey return to health. I appreciate immensely the fact that she listens to my concerns and doesn’t dismiss my comments. Connie always responds to any inquiries immediately, which depicts her genuine concern and willingness to help. One of Connie‘s recommendations has helped me manage a condition for which I had many years of unsuccessful treatment. Thank you Connie for your ongoing support."

Warmest regards, Janette Parent

“Happy Day 2! Just being part of this group and feeling more accountable has definitely been a huge plus for me right now. I am thankful for this course and group as I am taking back my health again...Day 2 of the course and second day back on track with my morning ritual and I see a huge difference in how I see the day and how I deal with circumstances :) Self-care is important!!"
