“Your strength and spirit shine and I believe you touched everyone in a very special way.” Director of Philantrophy, The Hope Heart Institute
“Thank you so much for sharing your amazing story with us last night. You made a tremendous impact with our guests last night and— I think I can speak for all of us – inspired and challenged us to be brave and listen to our hearts. You have a wonderful gift and I am so honored and grateful that you shared it with us. One of my favorite things about my job is meeting people who live their lives with passion and love for others. You are at the top of that group in my eyes. – Executive Director, The Hope Heart Institute

Whether you need a chef, nutrition consultant, food critic or judge, healthy cooking demonstration or story of inspiration, I would love to be part of your event.
Serving on a panel for health and wellness, judging food competitions, cooking demonstrations and inspiring others with my story of overcoming an abusive relationship and losing over 100 pounds after being overweight/obese most of my life, I have a lot to share and hope to touch as many people as I can to share my passion for food, creating healthy relationships with food, creating new healthy family legacies and of course, cooking!
Workshop topics include:
“Kirsten lead a cooking class for our Brownie Girl Scouts so that they could earn their “healthy snacks” badge. Needless to say, the event was overwhelmingly successful. It’s hard enough to keep 7 and 8 year olds focused, but Kirsten did an amazing job keeping the kids engaged while at the same time making it a rich and interactive learning experience. The kids learned so much about healthy eating that will benefit them for years to come and we were so grateful to have her. Since the event, my daughter has become more conscious of her own food selections. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to improve their eating routines with healthy food choices that are both delicious and satisfying!” – Denise Lauricella
