As a holistic nutritionist and chef for 25+ years, Nell offers a customized, comprehensive approach, and works closely with her clients; guiding them to attain their goals in a sustainable, practical manner that suits their lifestyle. 

Her dedication to helping others discover the root cause of what’s standing in the way of achieving optimal health comes from healing her own gut issues. She found that the healing work starts with food… and from there, healing progresses into the higher pillars of wellness.

Nell began her career as a private fitness trainer after graduating from USC with a degree in exercise science. She transitioned into nutrition coaching as she found she was able to have much more of an impact on helping people transform themselves through food. 

Nell worked closely with her mentor, Dr. Loren Cordain, founder of the Paleo Diet. She has written five books on a Paleo approach to health and has been featured frequently as a Paleo expert on the Dr Oz Show.

In 2018, she created and launched her own bone broth company, PALEOISTA ARTISANAL BONE BROTH, which she sells at the Los Angeles local farmer’s markets.

Nell is a longtime ironman triathlete and a marathon runner. 

She’s a happily married mom to a 4-year old son and two dogs. Her favorite place is in the kitchen, where she’s been practicing her cooking skills since age 4!
