Hi, I am Chantelle. I spent 25 years as a Swiss Hotel School qualified hospitality professional and gained experience in the industry across Africa & Europe.  My focus and passion has always been with food and nutrition; my career took a turn a few years ago when I put down my chef’s hat & knives to focus more on Nutrition and healthy dining options.

My wonderful fun-filled exciting adventurous life that I shared with the absolute love of my life and two amazing young daughters came to a grinding halt in 2010 when my hubby was diagnosed with lung cancer.  This diagnosis came as such a shock as he wasn’t sick.  I was consumed with researching cancer diets and feeding the man the weirdest and most wonderful creations without really knowing what I was doing.  Within 8 weeks of pain, suffering and one round of chemo he passed away at the age of 42.

I was convinced that there had to be a connection between this awful disease and our diet and lifestyle choices. I embarked on a soul-searching journey to find the answers and that led me to New York City to reinvent myself and start a new career as a Nutritionist and holistic Health Coach.

And what a journey it has been. Not only have I learnt so much about myself but I have been privileged to coach clients  through their recovery from a variety of health challenges. With each of these folks I have researched deeply to find the best of contemporary and traditional healing wisdom. Through these experiences the philosophy for my health coaching offering gradually fell into place.

Hi, I am Jenna. I am a wife and mom of 2; a former IT Business Analyst turned Health Coach. My health journey has been a long one. After struggling with weight issues, infertility, emotional eating, acute anxiety, PTSD, and thyroid cancer, I turned to Chantelle for help. She changed the way I think about food, exercise and life. I was so inspired by what I had learnt I turned to study Integrative Nutrition to heal myself and help others struggling to achieve wellness. I believe that feeling unwell is a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow if you take it!

Healing is not only possible but so, so worth it.

I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied various dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.

NOURISH has been something Chantelle, and I have dreamed of for over five years, and seeing it come alive is a dream come true. We can’t wait to share what we have learnt with you.

Hi, I’m Sarah! I am an Integrative Health Coach with a special interest in gut health and how it affects hormone balance in the female body. Having struggled with my own gut health and hormonal imbalances, I get it – it can be a frustrating and long road to walk! During my teen years I bought into the facade that the pill could “balance” my hormones. But this lead me to a series of health complications. It was only when I determined to get to the cause of dis-ease in my body that I started to find true health and homeostasis.

I love food! I love creating food, preparing food and experimenting with flavours. I love knowing that with every bite of good food my body is being nourished. Food is more than just calories. It is information sent to every cell in our body and with every bite that we take, our food is either fighting disease or fuelling it.
