I help women who are tired of hating what they see in the mirror or don’t have the energy to enjoy their life to reclaim control and take charge of their health so they can look and feel like a million dollars.
— Karissa, Global Health Coach and ketogenic expert

my mission

My mission is to help every woman feel empowered to change their health for the better through a CLEAN KETO LIFESTYLE! This means doing the ketogenic diet the right way!!  Free of processed foods, artificial ingredients, and factory farmed meats and produce!  My mantra @ Clean Keto Lifesyle is to “Be Your Best Self". This website and my keto programs are designed to give every woman the tools needed to achieve optimum vitality and live their best life through the following principles: NOURISH, HEAL, THRIVE!

Focusing on health first and foremost is a much more sustainable and enriching path to true vitality. Elevating the importance of your health is the absolute best thing you can do to not only be happier, but also lose weight and improve your overall wellness. 

I’ve spent over a decade transforming and fine-tuning my own personal health and researching how what we put in our body and how we live our lives impacts our overall well-being. I went from a fast-food eating, soda pop drinking, sugar addict to a clean eating, fat burning machine!! I found the ketogenic diet during my personal struggles with a debilitating autoimmune disease and it completely transformed my life!  And it can transform yours too!  

I am here to guide you along your own personal wellness journey so you can "Be Your Best Self"! As an integrated nutrition health coach, I want to share the knowledge I’ve gained through my personal wellness journey and comprehensive training to inspire other people to THRIVE in their lives with Keto. My goal is to guide you through the process of changing your relationship with food, creating healthy habits even with a busy schedule, and learning how to enhance your overall health.

My Personal Story

As a corporate executive focused on my career and always striving for the next promotion, I admittedly neglected my health. I was in a constant state of stress, I was always tired and I felt like I was living in a mental fog.

Sound familiar? I am sure you can relate.

I survived off of multiple cups of coffee, pre-packaged granola bars, and of course the convenience of fast food and takeout. I was always trying out the latest diets in a hope that I could shed excess pounds and get healthier.  Every diet I tried would last a few days and then I would find myself back into my old habits.

Then one day, my body said enough is enough in the form of being diagnosed with a debilitating autoimmune disease called Ulcerative Colitis. My only hope at the time was to take medication in an attempt to manage the awful symptoms. For years, I took these prescription drugs but still experienced flare-ups. I was nervous that I was going to need surgery to remove a section of my colon and I was in a very dark place. During this time, the most frustrating part was that my doctor could not explain what was causing my issues. I felt helpless and scared.

That is when I got serious about my health…

I decided that I was going to take my health into my own hands, so I took it upon myself to get INFORMED! I read tons of medical books, attended health seminars, and poured through research studies. I finally came to the conclusion that the root cause of my disease was most likely my diet. I slowly started to transition to a grain-free diet and my symptoms began to improve. I would still have flare ups, but they were less frequent. Then by chance, I stumbled across an article detailing the ketogenic diet and that is where my life changed forever! My initial reaction was - so you are telling me that you eat 75% fat on this diet??!!! I couldn't wrap my brain around it, but I was very intrigued! And of course started researching it immediately!! To my surprise, all the science and research made perfect sense, so I started learning and perfecting the ketogenic lifestyle.

What's Possible...

Through trial and error and using myself as a guinea pig, I started crafting a customized keto wellness plan that I could easily incorporate into my busy life.

Within a few months, I shed the excess weight that I was carrying, I had more energy, my focus improved, I slept better, my skin got clearer, my stress levels dramatically decreased and to my surprise – my autoimmune disease went into remission!!! 

Once my co-workers, family and friends noticed my transformation, they wanted to know my secret. So I began enlightening them on what I was eating, when I was eating and the science behind why it worked. They started following my proprietary keto plan and saw amazing results too!

Check out these pictures of my husband and I. The one on the far right is from us 10 years ago. Don't let those smiles fool you! At this time in our lives, we were both inflamed, carrying excess pounds, constantly tired and also battling debilitating symptoms from our respective medical conditions. We didn't know what being healthy felt like or how good we could actually feel.

Fast forward to today after adopting a CLEAN KETO LIFESTYLE! The picture on the left is from last December. We are now we are in the best shape of our lives. We are leaner, happier, and most importantly finally free of our medical issues! We are truly living our BEST LIVES! It is possible!
