Maya Hayes
MPH, Certified Nutrition Educator
Thanks for visiting my website.  My passion in life is healthy living, good food, and helping other people live their healthiest and best self.  I am a Certified Nutrition Educator (though Bauman College in Penngrove) and I have my MPH through UC Berkeley. I have been working in weight loss and management since 2010, and I love helping people achieve their goals.  The important part is not just the loss, but the maintenance of your new, improved lifestyle.
I struggled with an eating disorder and negative body image through most of my teens and early 20s. After I recovered from the eating disorder I refused to look at my weight on a scale for 8 years.  In 2009 I began to study nutrition in earnest and eventually made friends with the scale and food again. I now maintain a healthy weight, weigh myself regularly, and have a positive relationship with food.  This experience really made me want to help others achieve the same. 
I live in Petaluma with my husband, our two dogs, and our daughter Everly.  A couple of my favorite workouts include OrangeTheory and the Dailey Method (if you haven't tried these feel free to ask me about them!), love to hike, horseback ride, and ski.  I also enjoy cooking, creating my own as well as trying new recipes  - look for interesting recipes soon on my blog.
The goal of my website is to be a resource for clients and an entertaining read for anyone who drops by.  As your coach and nutritionist I will work alongside you to help you create an approach that fits into your lifestyle.  This is not an all or nothing approach, I don't expect you to drop everything to focus only on your goals. I know that you have a life - let's make that life healthier!
