about us

Welcome! It’s great to have you here. I’m Valerie, the founder of Seeds to Branches Nutrition. Before I get to know you, I thought I’d share a little about myself.  

Alongside my professional role as a compassionate Certified Holistic Nutrition Practitioner and Fertility Coach, I’m also a wife, daughter, sister, aunt to many, the proud mom of an incredibly charming little boy ~ and a fur mama to our husky-lab.  

What brings me the greatest joy is witnessing others blossom into the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves. To me, self-care isn’t complete without a dose of humor and I believe nothing is more valuable than equipping yourself with the empowering tools and knowledge to support your own well-being.  To dig deeper into the inspiration behind Seeds to Branches Nutrition, I invite you to explore the Inspiration tab.

I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, among the chaos of three sisters. I learned the value of compassion from my mother. She devoted her entire profession to geriatric healthcare, inspiring me to follow a path of empathy and care for others. And my Italian father? He instilled in me a passion for food, introducing me to heaping plates of pasta, fresh vegetables, olive oil, and of course, a homemade glass of wine. 

These days, I call Alberta, Canada home, just a short drive from the breathtaking Rocky Mountains.  I do frequently return to my homeland out East.  This is where my extended family resides, including a baseball team of nieces and nephews. It’s also where I immerse into deeply rooted friendships, the beauty of cottage country, cheering on the Jays at the Dome, and even a bit of that crazy little thing called humidity.
