I’m vanessa. vegan chef turned food freedom + embodiment coach.

I haven’t always had a good relationship with food, my body, or myself. In fact, not long ago I found myself with everything I thought made up a happy life. However, internally I was lost, unfulfilled, and dying to live on my own terms.

I spent years looking for answers, following all the health + wellness gurus, and experimenting with different modalities and ways of healing.  Detours took me down wrong paths, but little by little I found a home within myself. Some might say mistakes were made, but really each was a crucial step to me mastering what works for me.

About Vanessa | Health Coach | Live Simply Natural

I'm a big believer that things happen for a reason and often times it's for our own healing.

change is possible.

At 16 I Found myself jumping into the scariest hood known to man...parenthood!

Yep, I was 16 and pregnant. I can’t say I was fully ready but I believe things happen for a reason. If I can inspire you to say to yourself, “change is possible” when the rest of the world is projecting doubt then I’ll consider my work done. 


Because I’ve had many labels and wore many hats in my lifetime: like that of a teen mom, a run away child, a person addicted to proving herself, a perfectionist, a crunchy homeschool mama of two, a do it all wife, a raw vegan devote, a yogi enthusiast, a trauma survivor, a seeker of healing, and self help junkie.

This is what I know. We are human before we are any label and each us have our own unique path toward embodying our natural blueprint for health. 

I’m not interested in a “one size fits all” approach to life. Each of us has to find what works for us. This is why I believe, you are the expert on your own body and life. And you are always allowed to start again, mid-morning, mid-life, or mid-bite.

it’s in this authentic way of living that we find who we truly are.

The LSN Philosophy

a combination of nervous system health + personal liberation

Feeling good isn’t only about what you eat. It includes all aspects of life, from relationships and careers to boundaries and self-worth.  

We believe in using the body as the guide because every answer that’s needed is already found within you. Learning to listen creates more opportunities for your own inner wisdom to resurface and be heard. That is our focus here. We strive to create tools and resources to support this simple way of life. 

Here at LSN, we know what it feels like to really own our health and we do our best to integrate rituals into our daily lives that help us thrive. This process is not perfect and perfection isn’t ever our goal. Finding your authentic blueprint for health is. Here, we believe that the body is not an ornament. It’s a vessel to our deepest healing. 

We understand that your needs around health and well-being are deeply personal to you. This doesn’t mean that you have to do it alone. We are here to support you in your homecoming. 

Our food philosophy is all about teaching you how to cultivate a healthy relationship with food. There are no diets here, just practical and sustainable ways to nourish yourself while making food fun again. Our method isn’t about letting yourself off the hook. It’s about rebuilding self-trust so that you are naturally able to find the sweet spot between honoring your health and holding yourself lovingly accountable to what feels good to you. 

Vanessa | Feel Whole Embodiment Coach


she is great at holding space and keeping you lovingly accountable to your goals.
I was feeling uncomfortable in my body and became depressed about gaining weight during the pandemic. Vanessa helped me reconnect with what I truly desired for my health. It was so fun working with her and I recommend her to anyone looking for an effective and nourishing approach.
I was feeling creatively stuck, uninspired and severely burnt out. 
My coaching session with Vanessa was exactly what I needed. Her encouraging and supportive nature helped me to feel nourished and seen. She helped me to overcome deep layers of blocks and resistance which has felt truly miraculous.
I am more fearless and patient when it comes to the unknown
I came to Vanessa looking for clarity so that I may better serve those around me. She was a beacon of support for me. Her sincere and compassionate attention provided me the space to find the answers I needed to not only chase my dreams but actually live them. Together we created a strong foundation to build from and I am more fearless and patient when it comes to the unknown.
