Improving health & wellbeing, one meal at a time

You can take control of your wellbeing!

Are you curious to learn how nutrition and other lifestyle factors are involved in maintaining and restoring health? Worried about chronic diseases in your family? Want to learn more about a plant-based diet, but not sure how to start?

As a pediatrician and mom of twins, I have struggled with stress, health, and weight issues through most of my adult life. My own journey towards wellness led me to discover lifestyle medicine and the powerful role diet plays in our health. I am here to share my journey with you and provide guidance on how to feel more in control of your health and discover wellbeing and joy. Are you ready to take the first step toward wellness? You can do it, and I can show you how!

"I started to walk with WWAD a few months ago. I started walking as an exercise in 2019 after a medical procedure, to increase my mobility. I mostly walked alone. WWAD not only provides encouragement to continue walking and improving my physical health but allows and encourages me to interact with the other participants in the group. Members in the group range in age., young and old, walk at their own pace. Dr. Marie provides guidance in proper nutrition, and stresses that it isn't how far or fast you go, but that you make the effort. She answers any medical or nutritional questions. I can be found walking many different trails/paths in Harford County (2 to 3 times a week). I always look forward to WWAD, Dr. Marie, and the cameraderie of group.
