You Are Well Founder | Holistic Nutritionist
Hi friend! My name is Rebekah,
and I’m the founder of You Are Well, a virtual community that educates, empowers, and supports you to approach health naturally, and the author of Healthy Gourmet for Everyday cookbook. I understand what it’s like to not understand; to be doing everything “right” yet making no progress; to feel alone. I am passionate about freeing women from the traps of dieting and band-aid solutions to their health challenges. I believe that nutrition is an important part of the body's healing process and the best health starts with the right diet that's specific to each individual. Nourishing foods do not have to be a compromise; the best “diet” is both delicious and satisfying. I founded You Are Well to provide a community that can teach you what you need to know in a way you can understand, give you the tools to apply what you learn in your REAL life, and connect you to a community that supports and encourages you to approach health naturally.
- My family moves around a lot….like A LOT! Since marrying my husband, we have lived in 5 different cities and 4 different states. Oh the life of a construction wife! We currently reside in Stamford, CT, but stay tuned as this information changes often. We may be neighbors one day!
- Things I love: Spending time with my husband and my son, cooking, the beach, traveling, and of course a good cup of coffee
- Hobbies: Sailing (our newest hobby) and crocheting
- Quirks: I have a pretty serious personality, but you never know when I might break out into a spontaneous dance party. And I cannot follow a recipe to save my life.
