Quinn Turns One

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

My little love turns one today!


Wow, what a year. It definitely flew by. There were so many highs and so many lows, but the one thing that was constant was my ever-growing love for Quinn. He’s brought so much happiness and love to our family this past year. I’ve enjoyed watching him grow into a sweet, inquisitive boy so much, and I can’t wait to see what the next year bring us.
