Your non-diet dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor, and I've been where you are. I know what it feels like to be unhappy in your skin and constantly worry about what you should or shouldn't eat. But, life is too short to live like that. You deserve more. There is a better way. Keep scrolling to learn how.
Before (well, honestly during) my education, I was probably a lot like you. I had no idea what healthy eating meant (the internet complicates things). I felt intense guilt every time I ate something “unhealthy”. I was unhappy in my body and struggled to find any
Today, I eat more and trust my body to find and maintain my happy weight. I no longer worry about every calorie eaten. I feel amazing. My energy skyrocketed. And best of all, I took my life back. Food and body insecurities no longer hold me back. I'm in control and I am creating and living out my dream life.
I am so passionate about what I do because it is LIFE CHANGING. I want you to find freedom and peace in food. I want you to feel comfortable in your body and create the life you dream of. And I know I can help you do just that.
Make Life Peachy is named in honor of my mom. In 2015, I lost my mom to cancer. I was always into nutrition, but this experience is what actually set me on my journey to become a dietitian. Although my mom is no longer physically with me, she inspires me every day to live life the fullest and to always look on the bright side. She was known for her positivity, so "Make Life Peachy" combined my love for food and her optimistic outlook on life! Life is a gift, so make it peachy.
I was in 6th grade the first time I felt like I needed to restrict what I ate to control my weight. I was only 11 years old, but most girls were doing it, so I figured I should be too? Today, the average age a girl will start a diet is 8 years old. Yep, let that sink in.
Fast forward to high school. I was active and mostly ate what I craved, but i was still very self-conscious of my body and diet. But again, most girls were! It was “normal”. During these years I became very into health and nutrition.
Once i went off to college, i experienced weight gain related to simply getting older, and became stuck in the restrict-binge cycle. I noticed my clothes fitting tighter and started to feel even more uncomfortable in my skin.
My sophomore year, I decided it was time to get "back on track" with exercise and dieting. I changed my major to nutrition. Because I wasn’t already obsessed enough with food right?
I was in school to help others eat healthy, yet I had an unhealthy relationship with food. I counted every calorie I ate, overexercised, and was constantly anxious about food. This obsession being healthy (which was ultimately all about my body size) was actually unhealthy.
My senior year, I discovered intuitive eating and realized a there was a better way. I didn't have to track every bite and restrict food to live healthfully. I decided to change. I stopped counting, started listening to my body, and slowly built body trust. I ate foods I hadn’t touched in years! I focused on how I felt and applied what I learned in school to balance my plate.
I started eating more, exercising less, and ditched the scale... and this helped rebuild my metabolism. I was finally able to enjoy food and social events without anxiety. I thought about my body less & started to feel more confident in my skin.
Today, i'm a "normal" eater. food is no longer stressful, it’s just food. I no longer worry about every calorie eaten. I feel amazing and have more energy than ever. You may think this isn’t possible for you, but if my clients and I can do it, you can too. You can feel free around food, become confident in your skin, and create the life you deserve.

Allie is so knowledgeable, encouraging, positive, and sweet! She does a great job presenting the information in an easy to understand and apply format. I looked forward to getting my weekly packets and then our weekly webinar. The Facebook group made it so easy to ask questions and share our struggles. She is very attentive and helps you get the most out of it. With her knowledge and encouragement making small changes that have had big impacts was almost easy but definitely fun. Well worth every penny! Plus once you get to know Allie for the hard-working, well educated, caring, and dedicated dietitian that she is you will have no regrets about supporting her small business. I look forward to working with her more in the future.
For the past 5 years I put my body through 1200 calorie diets, fasting, and even binge eating for the latter 2 years. After gaining 30 pounds and feeling the lowest I had ever felt about myself, I decided to make my health a priority. I was expecting to count calories or macros because I thought that was the only way to keep track of how much food I was consuming. I was completely blind sided when she told me she could teach me how to love my body, eat all foods without feeling stressed, gain energy, and lose weight as a side effect. I trusted the process and worked so hard with Allie these past 3 months. Food no longer controls my life, I control what I eat. I have more energy, my clothes fit much more comfortably, I love my body the way it is and for all it does for me, and I finally feel like I have my life back to enjoy everything I was missing out on.
Allie creates a non-judgmental atmosphere that is all about learning healthy habits that are sustainable. The Make Life Peachy guide is a valuable resource in helping to form habits that aren’t daunting by any means. By focusing on “food freedom,” Allie encourages her clients to rid themselves of any guilt associated with food choices. I’ve gained new knowledge on how different foods affect our bodies and created goals that are not only achievable but are almost effortless to keep up with long term. With Allie, it’s not about diets or fads, but knowing how to make healthy choices for yourself that can be kept up with.
After establishing a consistent workout schedule I thought that would be enough to make me a healthy human. Boy I was wrong. My eyes were opened to many subconscious actions and thoughts I was having toward food that were leading me to binge eating, being too hard on myself, and not feeding my body the nutrients it deserves. With just the bootcamp I've learned that no food is good/bad. I snack less, I crave less, and I have lessened my fear of carbs because I've learned they fuel my workouts for better performance and keep me full longer. Social media plays a huge role in how we treat ourselves and we all need a little help and guidance in giving ourselves some love and grace.
Before I came to Allie, food and weight terrified me. If I got on the scale one morning and it was different than the day before, my whole day would be ruined. My mood would change completely. I felt like my weight was written across my face. The first thing she taught me was to LOVE myself and to treat my body with respect instead of being mean to it. I live in Hollywood and I’m an actress... nobody teaches you to love your body... they actually teach you the opposite so this was new to me. I lost 8 pounds. But that isn’t even the important part, I love myself 8 pounds heavier and 8 pounds lighter. I have more energy, food doesn’t scare me and I can now focus on life instead of regretting every second I eat.
