Liza Baker

(That’s Leeza!)

Health coach and sanity whisperer to under-appreciated, under-listened to, under-taken-care-of, under-valued, overwhelmed, overworked, over-scheduled, and OVER. IT. ALL. working wives and mothers who dream of a starring role in their own lives.

Full-time Integrative Nutrition® health coach, self-published author, part-time consultant, and woefully underpaid COO of a busy family of four—I adore my crazy life and bring my passion, knowledge, and experience to the table to help you love YOUR life, crazy as it is.

And I can show you how to get there without impossible diets, insane workout regimens, magic pills, silver bullets, and crazy detoxes because that’s how I did it!

I received my health coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®  and an AAS in Culinary Arts from the Cooking + Hospitality Institute of Chicago (now part of Le Cordon Bleu). In the years BC (before children), I was the owner and executive chef of a catering and private chef company in Chicago, and I’ve taught cooking and nutrition to all ages.

What does that mean for you? I know the value of nutrition—both the whole foods variety and the more holistic kind—and I can show you how you can make the food and lifestyle choices that nourish you…without adding more “shoulds” and hours to your already overwhelming schedule.

I live with my husband in a half-empty nest in Ann Arbor, MI and am passionate about health and happiness, education and exercise, SOLE* food and social justice.

Want to know more? Check out my CV, which I try to keep up to date.

*Seasonal, Organic, Local, Ethical: I believe that food should be healthful, “green,” fair, and affordable for all.
