She has a certification from Columbia University Teacher’s College in New York City. This gives her their acceptance on her abilities to teach people what she knows in the health coaching field.

Gail’s approach is not to dwell on “dieting”. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, she works with her clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding.
The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run.
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that matters. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving your goals.
The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, good fats, and water. The plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet.
Gail works with clients to help educate them about the medicinal benefits of using of CBD, both topicals and sub-linguals. Gail’s Cupboard carries CBD products available for purchase from CW Hemp (Charlotte’s Web) and CV SCIENCES. Prices and product listings are available upon request.
