I’m Margi McDaniel, Certified Nutrition Therapist, or ‘Nutritionista’ to my friends and family. I love my profession and feel grateful every day for the opportunity to help women step into their radiance. My clients know that a healthy, balanced and blissful life is a journey, not a finish line.
My own path to better health was a long and winding road, including 25 years in the food and hospitality industry. The 70- hour workweeks, lack of exercise, and high stress took their toll. More than once, I found myself looking for answers and comfort in the refrigerator! I was overweight and, according to my doctor, was suffering from adrenal exhaustion. One Christmas, my 10-year old son said, “Santa spends more time in this house than you do!” What a gift and wake up-call for me. The answer inspired me to obtain my degree, Master Nutrition Therapist, from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, CO.
After five years in clinical practice, I am expanding my reach…offering group cleanses, tele-seminars, and home study courses, connecting with women all over the country. A supportive relationship provides you the accountability, tools and action steps to keep moving forward. Best of all, you have friends to share your journey and celebrate your success!
