Hi I’m Malissa!  I’ve created Nourish + Balance for a few reasons:  Number 1: I’m passionate about helping people get healthy, glowing and feeling good in their own skin…and knowing it’s all in YOUR own control.  Anyone can do it…it’s not about will power, starvation and quick fixes.  It’s about feeding your body the proper nutrients so that you are actually nourishing yourself and it can all be done in a fun, simple, tasty, back-to-basics sort of way.  Number 2: I love teaching people what I’ve learned through my own journey, and I want to share that knowledge, break it down in an easy to understand, relatable way and hopefully help you avoid some crazy, unnecessary potions, trick and gimmicks that I tried and wish I hadn’t!  Number 3: I’m a Libra.  Plain and simple I love fun, excitement and the thrill of life…which at times has left me on a roller coaster of ups and downs and all around.  News flash! Embracing a healthy lifestyle does not have to equal boring!  But being an all or none kind of gal has not always served my well-being and I’ve learned it’s important to bring a balance to taking care of yourself while also living life to the fullest.  I’ve realized my Libra self thrives better when balancing opposites and creating harmony vs. riding the roller coaster.  I’m in charge of this ride now, and loving every second of it!

I’m not here to give you a diet program to follow. Diets don’t work. I’m here simply to act as a guide to help you pick the most nutrient-rich foods for your body so you can start nourishing yourself and restoring your health. As a part of this journey, I will walk you through detoxing and cleansing your body in simple, nourishing, and tasty ways so that you can reset your body and start fresh. There are delicious recipes, tips, and tricks that will help YOU become the expert so that you can be in control of your food, body, and health.

My goal for you:

Our bodies operate on food, and their efficiency depends on the types of fuel we consume. Follow my tips and I guarantee that your body’s performance and clarity will amaze you.


My own journey to a nourished, balanced life began started with the many retreats and centers I visited to feed my curiosity about this thing called cleansing.  But my official training started at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I was trained in over a hundred dietary theories and studied practical lifestyle management techniques.  My education continued at the world-renowned Hippocrates Institute for health and healing where I studied and experienced the power of raw and living foods and live juices.

I have over 8 years of experience running events in New York City, and I’ve combined that knowledge my with my passion for health and now run health and wellness retreats all over the country.  I have the privilege of working along side and learning from some of the most knowledgable and influential doctors working in prevent and disease reversal, like Dr. Scott Stoll, Dr. Michael Klaper, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Michael Greger and Dr.’s Brian and Anne Marie Clement. Now, as a board certified health coach and a certified health educator, I am able to draw on my extensive knowledge of holistic nutrition, detox therapy, and dietary theory to create customized health plans for my clients – plans that revitalize and transform their lives for the long term.

I’m on a mission to share the secrets to a nourished, balanced life. And not only do I work with clients one-on-one to help them reach their health goals, I also consult with companies and host events and health retreats to bring whole groups of people into vibrant wellness. These techniques are truly transformational and affect every aspect of life – especially work! My clients include WholeFoods Market and others who understand the value of energized, bright employees. Participants have increased satisfaction at work and become better at what they do.

What I offer can transform lives and create wellbeing and vibrance in anyone’s body, no matter how depleted, fragile, or chaotic. This is an investment in your future productivity and satisfaction. Want to feel nourished, balanced, and energized? Let me show you how.
