You're a smart, talented woman who is good at so many things.

How about adding losing the weight for good to your list of successes?

You tried what seems like every diet? That's the problem!

It's time to ditch dieting for good and do something that actually works!

Hi, I'm Shari!

I used to think I loved food too much to lose weight. But it wasn't true for me and it isn't for you, either. You can love food, cooking and baking, enjoy dining at great restaurants, travel, and still lose weight and keep it off–and I can’t wait to prove it to you!

I’m a mind-body weight coach for foodies who care about their health and want feel great in their bodies. I’m passionate about helping you discover what really caused you to gain weight so we can fix the problem at the source, and teaching you how you can enjoy the foods you love while not only losing your excess weight for good, but also losing your desire to overeat!

I’m a gourmet cook and baker who loves delicious food. Food is one of my creative outlets!

For most of my life, my weight went few pounds down, then a few more up. Then I became a lawyer and joined a law firm. Work was so stressful that I rewarded myself by polishing off the candy the administrative staff put in the candy bowls. I gained 10 pounds a year during those four years, most of it due to stress eating and rewarding myself with food for overworking. I reached my all-time high weight, and developed a habit of associating hard work with needing to overeat.

Like you, I tried diet after diet, looking for the magic pill that would let me be thin. Then  I discovered the secret to not overeating while still enjoying the foods I love. That changed everything.

And I lost 50 pounds.

Because it’s not the food that is the problem. It is HOW and WHY you're eating it.

Making Magic...

Would you believe that you can actually lose the desire to eat when you aren't hungry? That's part of the magic of my program. 

I really do know what you’re going through. I’ve been there. I struggled for much of my life. But my struggle is over and yours can be, too! I’m really thrilled that I have figured out how to master permanent weight loss and can share what I’ve learned with you.

The magic part is that you can actually lose the desire to eat when you’re not hungry. It really is possible! When you learn how, losing weight and keeping it off becomes effortless.

Weight coaching isn’t a diet. It is a way of approaching food and eating that makes intuitive sense. With weight coaching, you stop having cravings, and you can slim down without giving up your favorite foods or treats. You can even have sweets and snacks in the house and even forget they are there!

Talk about a game changer! You can actually change your entire relationship with food. You can control food instead of it controlling you!

When this happened to me, I was so excited that I wanted to help other women so they, too, could lose weight without diets and deprivation, make peace with food, and change their relationship with their bodies. That's why I became a certified life coach.

Feel the Liberation!

Most of my students tell me that the best part is feeling the liberation from that obsession with food and eating that wastes so much of your time and energy.

You can be a comfortable weight and stop the food obsession.

Ready to melt down to your healthy weight and learn to approach food and eating like a naturally thin person?

Other Stuff About Me...

I have BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Maryland.
My first job out of college was on Capitol Hill as a legislative aide for a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
I have been practicing yoga since 1971! I started learning yoga from a book before 98% of the population even knew what yoga was. I love yoga! It has allowed me to remain flexible and pain-free as I get older. I'm still able to do splits and backbends.

I love to cook and bake and am quite accomplished at both. Creative cooking is one of my super powers. Vegetarian cooking and chocolate desserts are my specialty. “Sinful” is a word that should never be used to describe food.

My Myers-Briggs type is ENFP.

I first learned to play a string instrument in 2012, and am now in a band in which I play the bass and sing. 

I love to dance, and used to dance ballet, modern, jazz, Russian character, to name a few.

I'm incurably curious. I love to travel, love adventure, and trying new things.

Most of all, I love my two fabulous daughters and my fantastic husband.
