Hello, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Vicky – so nice to meet you!
Here I am writing my first ever blog post, with the purpose to tell you about who I am, what Nourish Me is, and what I intend to achieve through Nourish Me.
First and foremost, I am a mum. A dedicated mum with a passion for health and food. I have a beautiful boy called Hector who means the world to me, and a hunting obsessed husband – Troy. We live in Palmerston North with our two Labradors, Finn and Jax. It’s a bit of a hectic household.
I started Nourish Me a little over three years ago. I was a personal trainer prior to that and realised that most of my clients actually needed me to train them through their diet rather than a workout! I’d always been interested in food and health, so here I am now – a nutritionist with a passion to create a healthier New Zealand!
I’m down to earth. I’m what some might call “real” – but what does that even mean? I’ll tell you what it means to me.
I’m honest, I’ll tell you how it is, I can be a bit blunt sometimes, but I am also caring and extremely aware of peoples emotional needs – especially when it relates to their food habits and health!
I’m warm, I’m approachable (or at least I like to think I am), and I am encouraging.
I see the world for what it is, and I can put myself in my client’s shoes to understand their lives and their needs.
I am a coach and a sounding board.
I am an ear and an educator.
I am not just a nutritionist, but a nutrition coach.
So what is Nourish Me?
Well, to be honest, Nourish Me is more than just a nutrition coaching business, it’s me.
Nourish Me is designed to help.
To help create a healthier You.
To help create healthier eating patterns.
To help create a healthier relationship with food.
To help to educate people around nutrition, and to help to create a healthier New Zealand.
I absolutely love what I do! I love seeing my clients transform from being low in energy and self esteem, or in bad health, to becoming energetic, healthy individuals who can now see their self worth!
So here I am. I am Nourish Me, and I am striving to create a healthier New Zealand.
P.s. a fun fact about me, I’m a closet Eminem fan, and my opening line to this blog may or may not have been one of his lyrics, replacing “Shady” with Vicky.. but it worked so well, right? I couldn’t not.
