Holistic Nutrition Chef,
Cooking + Wellness + Health Coach
HI, I’M KIELE!
Simply put, I love to make people feel good about themselves. My main focus is for clients to feel healthy, confident, sexy, and empowered. I believe in thinking differently, inspiring others to put their wellness first, and I challenge the status quo on diet trends and lifestyle programs. I offer something more, something easy, something unique. Just for you.
I’ve created healthy lifestyle programs for those who want control and understanding of their life and their health. I specialize in Bespoke nutrition + cooking coaching: the mindful way.
How? Through self-care cooking, making healthy living effortless, and shifting mindsets about cooking to a mindful, meditative, enjoyable place. I invite and guide all people towards lives of authentic, easeful, joyous, health, happiness, self love, and vitality as empowered by the energy of food. Cook up the confidence! Mindful choices, preparation, and enjoyment of food is essential to all aspects of self care. Because nourishment begins within.
WHERE AM I FROM?
I’m a CHamoru Island Native of Guam, resettled as a native New Yorker in Brooklyn.

I worked a corporate-ish career for 15 years in the hustling New York City fashion industry, killing myself with long hours, the proverbial "work life", constant traveling, working out, eating "well", thinking I am taking care of myself.... but I really wasn't....because I simply wasn't AWARE of what my mind, body, and soul really needed. I was feeling “successful” …. yet unsatisfied, unfulfilled, seeking answers from the unknown.
And then everything changed.
In the height of my career around 10 years ago, I got very sick with a metal toxicity (straight up nickel poising for 7 months!), and went through extreme pain, anxiety, intense head-to-toe skin lesions, and nervous system issues. After countless doctors appointments, biopsies, tons of rx drugs, and no answers from doctors, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and try the non-traditional route.
I started on the journey to heal myself through food, nourishment, and self-love.
Everything changed after that. My mindset shifted into a more healing place, and I started to take care of myself a lot more - through a whole-food education, eating well, creating healthy habits, sensual movement and rituals, I started to really get healthy and began to thrive. No matter what anyone said. I started listening to what I really needed.
I also discovered pole dancing around that same time, and started also using movement to heal my sensual self to gain my confidence, feminine being, and self-esteem back into my hands.
I attended the prestigious Natural Gourmet Institute For Health and Culinary Arts in New York City and got certified as a nutritional chef. I decided I actually wanted to become an expert in cooking healthy food, not just become an expert nutritionist. It’s the best of both worlds.
I am also a lifelong student of eastern medicine, food energetics, holistic nutrition and sensual movement.
Through my experiences and passion, I am dedicated to helping people that this may resonate with to see what I didn't see, and to give them the tools they need to nourish themselves and understand their own personal wellness canvas - so they can thrive in vibrancy, femininity, confidence, and strength.
Join my tribe! Cook to love = love to cook.
