Hey, I’m Darlene!
I am the author of “The Affordable Vegan Diet” and a health and fitness professional with more than 15 years of experience. After transitioning to a vegan lifestyle in 2013 I became extremely passionate about veganism and helping others transition to a whole foods, plant-based diet. I’ve gone on to earn a number of fitness and health certifications to be a well rounded lifestyle coach. Some in certifications include Main Street Vegan Lifestyle Coach and Educator, American College Sports Medicine, and STOTT Pilates for functional rehab.
I’m a five-time NPC nationally-qualified bikini competitor and have competed in Spartan Races. I’ve also had a number of other fun appearances including a feature in Vegan Health and Fitness Magazine and numerous podcasts such as Food Heals Nation, Main Street Vegan Academy, and Half Hour Intern. You also may have spotted me in “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Ranch,” “EDGE Booty Extreme 2” DVD, and Beach Body’s “21 Day Fix Extreme” DVD. I even had a cameo on MTV’s “The Real World” when the cast was in…you guessed it…the gym!
My goal as your health and fitness coach is to give you creative, effective, and long-lasting lifestyle tips to you and your family.
