Holistic living practitioners, founders of ActiveVegetarian.com, authors of Vegan Weight Loss Manifesto and The Plant-Powered Athlete.

Both of us have been living a plant-based life for over two decades, and during this time we have encountered many amazing benefits this lifestyle offers. Overcoming personal health challenges along the journey have inspired us to emerge into the study of nutrition and holistic wellness. Over the years our passion has evolved to empowering and coaching individuals to take responsibility for not only their health, but their life experience as a whole.

There is so much information out there about vegan food and plant-based lifestyle these days, we admit it can certainly be overwhelming for those who want to give it a try but have no idea how to begin. We created the Plant Based Academy to help you make sense of it all and allow you to develop the knowledge base, skills, and results that will transform the way you eat, move and live. 

We are pleased that you’ve found your way here and we look forward to supporting you on your journey to a healthier and more conscious life!
