About Tonya

Hello! Thank you for visiting my site!  I am a certified holistic health counselor, founder of For the Love of Nutrition, and owner of Premier Pilates St. Louis.


With a backround in Dance and Pilates, my passion has always been helping people to live a happier and healthier life.  

Growing up with a Mother who was always stressing the importance of nutrition and health has helped me to realize early on, the effects of good eating habits, good health and how this relates to all areas of our lives.

Now that I have my own family, I find myself trying to instill those same values in them.  Though I have always been "health conscious" I have definitely found myself overwhelmed with life and also overwhelmed with the contradictory nutritional theories.  I realized I had been doing some form of "diet" off and on for 22 years going from no meat to all meat and everything in between depending on what the "experts" where telling us! There came a point where I needed to learn less about dieting and more about overall health and nutrition for myself and for my family.


I received my Health Coach training and certification from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and have been trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. I received my Masters of Science degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health from MUIH.  Drawing on this knowledge, I can help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.  Afterall, we are all individually unique and what works for one may not work for all.  That is why I base my coaching sessions on bio-individuality.

We all know that to be healthy we should eat right and exercise.  What I have found is that sometimes we just need a little guidance and support to discover what way of "eating right and exercising" is right for us and will ultimately lead us to our own personal health and wellness without diets, restriction or deprivation.
