Following a lifetime of what lots of people still think is healthy eating (low-fat, tofu, high-fiber breakfast cereals), Hollie made the transition to eating traditional whole foods many years ago. When she did, she found that not only her weight stayed balanced, but that she had more energy than ever. No more mid-afternoon slumps, no more getting sick during stressful deadlines.

Already a talented cook, Hollie became interested in how and why food influences health. She went on to obtain a Master’s of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition with honors from Hawthorn University and her personal chef certification from the Culinary Classroom in Los Angeles, CA. In 2004, she started her company Real Cooking in Santa Monica, CA and relocated her clinical practice to Missoula, MT in the fall of 2009.

Hollie is currently a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the Weston A. Price Foundation. On a local level, she is also a member of the Community Food and Agriculture Coalition, the Sustainable Business Council, Missoula Businesswomen’s Network, the Missoula Urban Demonstration (MUD) Project, the Montana Organic Association (MOA) and is co-chapter leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation in Missoula, MT.

Hollie has spoken frequently on the following topics as they relate to health: optimal digestion, weight control, hormone balance, proper detoxification, and strategies for transitioning to a whole foods diet. Myths and truths about low-fat diets, cholesterol roles in the body and soy food misconceptions are also favorite topics. Hollie was a guest speaker at the 2006 Weston Price Conference in Washington, D.C. and more recently co-produced the 2007 Change Your Diet, Change Your Life seminar in Los Angeles, CA.
