I have a passion for health, nutrition, and good food! I also really enjoy helping others. This is how Columbia Nutrition was born.
My name is Marcy Schveibinz, and I became interested in food and nutrition when I was growing up in the '70s in Buffalo, NY. I remember when my Dad became a “health nut”. He started running, focusing on nutrition, and eating "whole wheat bagels" which weren't easy to get in the '70s! This and other childhood experiences, like family trips to the orchard for apple picking in the fall, greatly influenced my interest in nutrition. To this day, a big, fresh apple is my kind of treat!
When the time came for me to pick a career, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I attended Buffalo State College and earned a B.S. degree in Nutrition. In addition to weight loss and healthy lifestyle coaching, my work experience includes food science, food delivery, nutrition education, and food/nutrition information systems. In 2014, I became a Certified Wellness Coach through the Mayo Clinic program.
I will work with you in a trusting, caring relationship. I will always treat you with the utmost respect and empower you on your path to success. By emphasizing mindfulness, accountability, and goal setting, I will guide you to make your own healthy choices. This will allow you to reach your wellness or weight goals without feeling deprived, while gradually adopting a new healthy lifestyle.
