Hi, I’m Avie and it’s so nice to meet you!
I am a Certified Nutrition Therapist Master and mom to 2 amazing grown children, have 4 grandsons and married to my best friend.
My business journey began when I was just 17. Growing up, my Dad always dreamed of a family-owned and operated meat market. In 1978 Dad opened his first Tony’s Meats located on County Line Road in Littleton which is still in business today. I worked at Tony’s Meats for 38 years of which my journey took me through every department in the retail store as well as every division in the company business office and executive team.
The retail food business is a tough business. Competition is everywhere, not just grocery stores, but fast food, casual style restaurants and so on. Food is everywhere, and in this industry, you have to work hard to consistently exceed customer expectations and stand out.
In 2016, after 38 years with Tony’s Meats, I was ready for something new. Something that did not entail 60+ hours a week at work. Something that did not keep me in a state of chronic stress and continue to contribute to insulin resistance, elevated silent inflammation, brain fog, severe anxiety including panic attacks and uncontrollable weight gain. So, at the age of 54, 1 year into my classes for Nutrition Therapist Master, I decided to leave the family business.
At that time, I was in poor health and continually saw doctors who literally were taping me back together with prescriptions. Both my health and weight continued to spiral out of control. Panic attacks strengthened, allergic reactions began presenting themselves, depression set in and more weight piled on…I was a wreck. Finally, I turned to a naturopathic physican for help, and soon things began to change. I became focused on understanding what was happening and how to prevent this from happening again.
Four years later, I’m thrilled to say I’m passionate about teaching nutrition and helping others and love spreading the word about the damaging effects of our Standard American Diet (SAD) and helping people understand that if change is not made, they too will struggle.
I specialize in ailments related to Metabolic Insulin Resistance Syndrome (aka Metabolic Syndrome) which includes insulin resistance, diabetes, high blood pressure, out of whack cholesterol, heart related events and weight loss. A growing waistline and anxiety can be either the culprit or a side effect of some of these issues. From experience, I know it’s better to get ahead of it before it gets ahold of you!
Through simple language and analogies, I teach how to go from a place of being unwell to wellness. I bring experience and the ability to listen and start you in a place that is comfortable for you. I truly understand how difficult change is and I am here to help you improve your situation and achieve your goals.
If you are stuck, want to grow, need help getting to the root of the issues,
whatever the situation…let’s do it together! I am ready to hear your story and look
forward to meeting you and helping YOU reach your Better Me.
