Hi! I’m Alana!

On paper, I’m a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, author, TEDx speaker, eating disorder survivor, and the founder and CEO of Freedom with Food and Fitness.

But just like you, I’m so much more. A lover of podcasts, travel, punk rock music, and binge-worthy TV, I’m also a wife and a mom. If I could travel back in time, it would be to 2003. My favorite pair of shoes is my beat up red, high-top Converse. I’m sarcastic, silly, and curse like a sailor. I’ve been told I have a deep laugh, like James Earl Jones.

I’m also just like you in that my relationship with food and my body was negative and all-consuming. My worth was completely tied up in the number on the scale. It took over my life and ironically robbed me of mental and physical health for years. All undiagnosed. All in a dark pit of shame I didn’t let anyone see.

I’ve learned quite a bit since then, and want to give it to you in service of this beautiful and supportive intuitive eating community. And I also want to get to know you, connect with you, and evolve with you.

My goal with this business is to give you the tools to walk through your life with confidence, joy and peace—all of which are. no longer dependent on your body shape and size. I want to give all my clients a clear path to authentic, mind-body-spirit health so they can blaze their path on this earth for as long as possible—just without diets!
