Hello, I’m Hannah!

I’m a professional dance artist, movement arts consultant, teacher, and functional nutrition coach. I have a passion for helping people feel more vitality in their bodies through the complementary healing arts of movement, music, and nourishing food. These original healing arts have served as companions on my journey toward health and happiness, and I want to share them with you.

My goal is to make healthy home cooking easier for you with the right tools, knowledge, and resources so you can dance your way through the kitchen.


Are you a dancer searching for the right nutritional approach to support your unique lifestyle?

I get you!

Are you someone who understands that healing is a dynamic process of engaging with the body?

Me too!

Do you want to feel more empowered and inspired in the kitchen to have the nutritional support to be your best self?

I’m here for you!

One of the best things we can do to uplift our mood is feed our bodies wholesome food.

Digestion is key to health and happiness. It’s not just what you eat, but what your body can absorb and metabolize. It all happens in the gut. Our emotional, mental, and physical well-being is directly impacted by how our body responds to what we eat. I want to help make the journey towards a healthier lifestyle a little easier for you.

Food is medicine, and cooking can be an act of self-care, creative expression, and love.

By re-embracing the art of the home-cooked meal, we are participating in a profound and revolutionary act. Healthcare begins in the home, and the cook is the primary care physician. We rob our bodies of vital nutrients and outsource our healthcare when we turn to processed foods and convenience foods to sustain us. How can we genuinely flourish unless we nourish?

I advocate treating ourselves with grace and kindness and learning to honor our bodies and what we put in them. I believe we can inspire ease and confidence in the kitchen with the right tools and knowledge and approach our food with the respect – and playfulness – it deserves. I do not promote any particular diet but champion your unique physiology, life history, circumstances, and your body’s innate ability to heal with the proper nutritional nudges and lifestyle adaptations.

What does cooking have to do with dance?

As expressions of culture that bind us together, dance, music and food preparation are traditional healing practices which our ancestors imbued with spiritual nourishment and practical wisdom. I view these embodied arts as complementary ways to encourage respect for the body, trust in its processes, grounding and reverence for the natural world. My background in the cultural arts, dance anthropology, and embodied healing practices informs my work with food and the value of developing an intuitive relationship with the body. We are permeable beings. Our environment affects us, and what goes on within the body plays out in our experiences whether we are aware of it or not.

My background

I’ve been a professional performing artist, movement arts consultant, choreographer, and teacher for over 25 years. I grew up on the stage, immersed in the classical western dance arts, and engaged in community musical theater productions throughout my youth. Later, my interest in anthropology, history, culture, religion, and psycho-spiritual healing practices drew me to study dance from the Near East, North Africa, and Central Asia and obtain degrees in Dance Ethnology and East-West Psychology.

As a performing artist, I frequently performed for weddings and other community events and partook in different cultural rituals and traditions. Food often played a central role in these festivities like music and dance.

It brings me joy to inspire others to move their bodies in new ways, explore the embodied healing arts from different cultural perspectives, and teach people how to make nourishing meals that feed the body and soul. Movement, music, and nourishing food – and I would add beauty, art, nature, and community – are keys to healthy living, So let’s add some spice to your life. Let’s get cooking!

The cookware you use matters.

We may think about eating healthy, but don’t consider how we are preparing our food. What we put in our environment we put in our bodies, and it is the little things we do every day that have a big impact.

Chemicals and heavy metals releasing from cookware affect the taste and nutritional quality of food. Cooking on the safest, purest cookware available is something you can do to protect your loved ones.
