Who am I?
I'm Heidi, a primary care pediatric nurse and a mama of many.
I love helping mamas care for their tiny newborns and their great big teenagers--and everyone in between.
Why did I create Leafy Vibe?
I saw a need that wasn’t being met.
Currently, much of the medical community is a little behind on understanding and promoting the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.
I know they’ll catch up! (But your kids may be grown by the time they do.)
So until then, I’m here to fill in that gap for you.
I created Leafy Vibe to make it easier for you (plant-based and vegan mamas) to feed your babies and toddlers nutritious plant-based meals, and to help you ensure your little one is getting all the nutrients she needs.
I hope to give you peace of mind that your little one can THRIVE on a plant-based diet!
Why am I qualified to help you?
I'm a Pediatric RN, BSN (registered nurse) and I LOVE ♥ mamas & children!
I'm a Health Educator and have a bachelor's degree in Health Education.
I'm an experienced plant-based mama of 4, stepmom to 2 and gramma of 2 plant based toddlers.
I've studied Plant-Based Nutrition and Transformative Nurse Coaching.
I love to cook and meal-prep and I’ve been meal-prepping for many years, before meal-prep was a “thing”, lol!
What change am I hoping to make in the world?
In the past, as a cardiac nurse and community health nurse, my heart broke from watching people suffer unnecessarily from chronic disease, disability and death from years of poor lifestyle choices.
I’m not blaming the patients. They didn’t know any better.
But we know now.
Because of this, I'm on a mission to help families prevent this kind of unnecessary suffering and loss of of life-especially in our next generation.
I know we can do better!
I hope you'll consider me your friend, mentor and partner in your plant-based journey with your child.
