Certified Nutrition Coach & Owner of My Bariatric Kitchen / Living Healthy Nutrition
Patricia is a 25-year career educator, former caterer, and amateur chef who had Bariatric Surgery in July 2016, losing a total of 128 pounds. Inspired by her own quest to lead a healthier life, she took it upon herself to learn all that she could about nutrition and how it now relates to her new tool.
Drawing upon her degrees in science and education, she enrolled in coursework and became a certified nutrition coach. In October 2016, she founded Living Healthy Nutrition and My Bariatric Kitchen to share her knowledge and experience with others. She built a team of professionals and, together, they provide resources and teach both surgical and non-surgical patients HOW to develop the skills needed to succeed.
Patricia teaches online classes on a variety of topics related to health and wellness, provides 1:1 coaching both online and in-person, and manages two monthly subscription services that offer nutrition, mindset, and fitness coaching. When she is able, she travels around the country to host dinners, retreats, and intensives, as well as speaks both in person and virtually for support groups, surgical centers, hospitals, and conferences.
Patricia also produces a popular weight loss podcast, Macros & Mindset: Bariatric Living and Beyond, with her best friend and colleague, Dr. Kristin Lloyd. She created her own ultra-healthy whey isolate protein powder, BariSuccess, that can be purchased on Amazon.
