From confusion and ailments to empowered, thriving health.
Welcome to truly natural living…
I help you design plant-based meal plans so you can reduce or eliminate medications and illness.
Unlike most alternative wellness doctors and coaches, I help you create inexpensive, delicious meals with all the food groups you love!
Together, we’ll plan a lifestyle that gives you the energy you want, while increasing fat loss.
Hope: I recycle as often as possible because I hope the planet can heal and am saddened by the amount of waste we create.
Hope is my Lunchbox
Grace: Your senses are an important aspect of healing that’s often overlooked, creating imbalance and dis-ease.
Grace embodies what you see, hear, feel/touch, taste, smell, and intuitively know
Ancient Wisdom: I believe that following the laws of nature is the path to complete healing.
Ancient Wisdom is what I teach
I am Hope, Grace & Ancient Wisdom; I am all that what was left in Pandora’s Box all those years ago.
I’m an urban girl from a metropolis area of the south (like west-coast-of-Florida-south), now living in eastern Long Island, NY. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, a Master of Arts in Holistic Wellness, am a certified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and Elder Greenfire WiseWoman.
I’ve spent over 20 years researching natural and alternative forms of healing. I’ve spent that time also watching trends come and go… often coming back under a new name but with the same dangerous effects. Because of my research, I vow to stick with tried, true, logical, scientific remedies.
I spent over a decade working in health insurance, auto/home insurance, for pediatric gastroenterologist’s and chiropractors; I’ve fought on both sides of medical claims to get Dr’s paid or not paid. I’ve seen all sides of our sick care model and understand how it does and doesn’t work.
I’ve been confused. I’ve lost loved ones to diseases after spending years caring for them with solid, sound advice. I’ve cured my health battles using herbs and nutrition. I’ve been frustrated by the information/misinformation.
I needed alternatives doctors couldn’t give me.
My mission is to help you cut through all the confusion you see and hear about being healthy.
I want you to get a diagnosis and responsibly follow a Holistic, natural, Empowered existence.
There is a middle road between medicine and nature, and I’m here to help you find it.
How It All Began...
... what do they say?
You definitely had an impact here! And don’t forget the ripple effect after the fact…
I just wanted to let you know that since I started receiving your blogs, I read them all! I enjoy getting a glimpse into your journey and you touch on the things that I would wonder about (garbage every other Thurs w tags! People friendly and adapted to their climate!) There is always something that I take away that I haven’t been exposed to quite so before… here it is “trading urges” and in your last blog, I saved the excerpt on “active/passive destruction/construction” – so spot on! Wishing you all good things on your continued adventure.
Thank you! 💛

You really take the most simple ingredients and elevate them. Seriously… you can take a ½ dozen ingredients, put them in an elevator, and really raise them up!

I’ll miss you, my friend. Thanks for all your warmth, kindness and fierceness. It’s been a privilege.

Always Humble and Kind,

Ps. Could you send out a cashew cheese recipe for me!!! Thank You! Namaste
You did an excellent job last night. The food was amazing! Your talk touched the people in the room. Did you notice how attentive everyone was? You are a gifted, king and nurturing human being. Not to mention, smart and intelligent also. So glad that I was able to have you as the speaker last night. I agreed with what you said about being vulnerable/real/connecting with people.

Alicia, you’re great! …. thanks again for the class…. like I said last night I’m sort of a skeptic when it comes to what I’ll loosely call the mystic kind of stuff. But the way you presented the material really made it very practical and relatable to my life experiences.
I thoroughly enjoyed the class material and your teaching style.
Thank you for your many hours of study and preparation that made you uniquely qualified and for the hours you dedicated each Tuesday night. My wife and I plan to visit your restaurant, I look forward to seeing you again.
