A holistic health practitioner, life coach, and healer of the mind, body and soul. It's my mission to support women to live the life of their dreams. For every woman this path is a little bit different!
For some it could be about healing their relationship with food, for others it's building their confidence or finding more purpose in life. It could even be about bringing more balance to their and reducing stress. Or some combination of them all.
Whatever is stopping you from having everything you desire, I support you to clear those blocks and get in action to accomplish your goals.
You may wonder why empowering women is so important to me. Women are a powerful part of this world, they have the intelligence and compassion I believe is necessary to heal the world. So my life's purpose is to support women, like you, to become the best version of themselves. So you can go out in the world and start projects that end world hunger, protect women from human trafficking or improve education.
I can't change the world on my own, so I'm here to support you to live your purpose and make a difference in the world too.
Want to know more about what I can support you with and what other women who have worked with me have to say about their experience?
So a little bit about me. . . .
I have the incredible pleasure of living in San Diego, one of the most beautiful places on earth! I've lived here for 14 years minus a short period of time I lived in Atlanta, Georgia and Guatemala!
I'm a Californian, born and raised, but it hasn't always been SoCal life for me. I grew up in Fresno (and no I didn't grow up on a farm) and moved to La Jolla to attend to University of California San Diego for college.
Pardon if this sounds like a dating profile . . I love long walks on the beach . . . Okay, on a serious note, the beach is one of my favorite places to be, I love hiking, taking long walks with friends, dancing, eating at new restaurants (from the hole in the wall to the hot new spot). I love to read, write, and secretly wish I could be a DJ (I LOVE MUSIC).
My own personal journey as well as my professional experiences have brought me right here to this exact place! Both have created a deep passion and desire to empower women to create a life they're head over heels in love with!
I am a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Integrative Nutritionist, a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and have a Master’s Degree in Public Health, concentrated in Epidemiology. Prior to starting Hello Beautiful Health, I spent 10 years in public health research and 5 managing an Obesity Prevention Research Study for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that promoted physical activity and healthy behaviors to low income women in San Diego County. I've published 9+ peer-reviewed papers on health and health behaviors. . .
But let's be honest, you want to know if I know what you're going through. . .
Because how can you know it's possible to get through what you're dealing with?
Well, you're in luck because my passion for what I do comes from where I've been and what I know needs to shift in order to step into your power, realize your true beauty, and live your purpose.
I've been there, I've hated myself, I've felt like a failure, like nothing I could ever do was good enough. Constantly feeling like I was good at a lot of things, but never great at anything.
I dated that guy, the one who made me feel awful about myself, who crossed the line one too many times. I've also been the single girl who felt like it was hopeless and I'd be single forever.
I was stuck in a job that I knew wasn't right for me, but couldn't get the courage to leave.
I have tried every diet in the book, hired a personal trainer, lost weight, gained weight and know what it feels like to never be satisfied with your body.
I understand what you're dealing with and I have all of the life-altering tools to support you to break through it all! Every step of the way!
So you can feel confident in every area of your life. You can face challenges with grace and ease.
You can find the love of your life or maintain a healthy relationship with the one you're in.
So you can live your purpose and wake up every morning excited to jump out of bed.
So you can look in the mirror every morning feeling beautiful and ready to take on the day.
You can trust yourself, use your intuition and manifest your dream life.

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
"My experience working with Marisa to accomplish my goals was not only life changing but also one in which i learned a tremendous amount of useful, practical and realistic information and tools to help me accomplish any goal I set for myself. My initial goals were to improve my health, increase the amount of physical activity I do and learn more about the business i wanted to pursue. Not only was I able to accomplish each area, but also learned a lot about myself and what I'm truly passionate about. My biggest challenge has always been creating a consistent habit towards creating a healthy lifestyle for myself. Before I began working with Marisa I was diagnosed with a health condition. As a result of Marisa's genuine interest in my health and well-being and through her advice and coaching, in a short amount of time I was able to stabilize my hormone levels. This was incredibly important to me as it would have negatively affected my chances of becoming a mother in the future. Marisa is a beautiful person inside and out. She truly has been a blessing in my life and i would recommend her and her coaching to anyone any day! She is genuine, caring, motivating, helpful, amazing, intelligent and truly will make a difference in your life and will help you not only reach but exceed the expectations you have set on any goal".
