"When I accepted a ten-day plant-based eating challenge after attending Tony Robbins' UPW last November, I immediately felt excited and overwhelmed. As someone who loves to cook and try new recipes, I suddenly felt lost and knew I would need help to make the 10 days more exciting.
I had known Sky socially and was aware of her personal experience with vegan lifestyle and her certification as a wellness coach, demonstrating her commitment to helping others along this journey. I figured she could help me understand the way forward and contacted her as I was making my way home from UPW.
Our first meeting was just what I needed! Educational, relational, and hands on, Sky provided much needed info and insights, helped me troubleshoot perceived barriers, and included invaluable pantry inventory and trip to the market. There, I realized plant-based ingredients hiding in plain sight - both in and out of the produce section. I relied on her experience and recommendations to overcome the many choices I now faced...about nut milks, alone!
In addition, Sky directed me to key resources for plant-based cooking and baking. These resources provided the structure I needed to move forward. The tasty results were echoed by friends whose compliments and empty plates provided confidence that ten days could become 30.
It's now been four months.
This one change has opened up so many other positive changes in my life. I've even selected a primary care physician who, during a year-long sabbatical, attended culinary school and is a big proponent of plant-based eating - even offering cooking classes! Foodie friends are now embracing plant-based recipes when I'm part of the crowd. And, I've become a more informed consumer and citizen - something particularly important to me at this time.
Thank you, Sky, for being a great teacher and resource."
"I loved working with Sky for so many reasons. First, I feel like she's my connection into the "Vegan Mafia". Girl knows a lot about everything, and she's connected everywhere. Sky has referred me to my now favorite vegan dining spots in San Francisco, Berkeley AND New York City. She's helped me revolutionize my diet as well as my thinking about being both an Athlete and being Vegan. I asked tough but important questions like "what is the best gourmet vegan cheese?" or "what vegan alternative milk will stand up to coffee and make a good latte?" and "what's a good vegan burger even my husband will go crazy for?". Sky has had the right answer every time. I've also never felt judged - not even for my slips at Thanksgiving or while traveling; and Sky doesn't push a militant vegan agenda. Sky listens; and she offers facts and most important - easy to incorporate solutions. I'm mostly sticking with my vegan diet, and I've gone completely vegetarian because of Sky. Sky has made it easy for this very particular and once stuck on 'I need my animal protein to be healthy' eater. "
