“Welcome to Spirit and Abundance. I created this company to help you reconnect with yourself and others through delicious plant based food.

I grew up in Western New York in the finger lakes region, surrounded by the beauty and bounty of nature. But even after graduating from culinary school and getting my bachelors I was more disconnected than ever. After years of struggling with weight, self image and food I found myself hungry not only for satiating and healthy food but to reconnect with where my food came from. I went vegan in the summer of 2017 to align my life with my values and have since lost excess weight and have regained my sense of purpose.

Join me on my journey as I continue to explore what this beautiful planet has to offer and hopefully learn a little about yourself in the process.”
