I’m super dorky, opinionated, and oh... I love statistics! That’s why you won’t hear me giving advice that isn’t backed by science. And that's a scientific fact (um...).

I’m married to Nick, my best friend from high school (cue heart emoji). Together we live in New Zealand's Winterless North (north of the Shire and east of Narnia) with our two beautiful girls Riley and Morgan!

Losing 18kg (40 lbs.) in 2018 was a catalyst for so much inner growth and good. I started skateboarding, mastered a 4 am morning routine, and smashed my lifelong goal of doing 1 chin-up (my record is now 9).

Not everything is perfect though. Nick was diagnosed with MS in 2014 and I kinda cracked. That’s a story for another time, but you don’t have to have everything together to start improving small areas of your life… rather that’s the perfect time to start!

So where did my weight loss journey start?

KEZIA

I’m Kezia, a broccoli-powered potato-eating-enthusiast with a mission to empower women on their journey to wellness. After struggling for years with a dream to show up differently in this world and a embrace an empowered life I dove deep into YouTube videos and books about the Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle.

I’m Kezia, a broccoli-powered potato-eating-enthusiast with a mission to empower women on their journey to wellness. After struggling for years with a dream to show up differently in this world and a embrace an empowered life I dove deep into YouTube videos and books about the Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle.

Despite amassing vast knowledge about the topic; forming sustainable habits, and being consistent enough to lose the desired weight remained elusive for me. I felt overwhelmed and like a failure after trying this on my own for years with no success.

Despite amassing vast knowledge about the topic; forming sustainable habits, and being consistent enough to lose the desired weight remained elusive for me. I felt overwhelmed and like a failure after trying this on my own for years with no success.

Recognizing the need for alignment between my actions and values, I turned to Lean With Plants and joined as a client in 2021.

It was here that I learned the tiny habits, simple systems, and consistency strategies which lead me through this process, where I shed 80 lbs and have maintained my healthier lifestyle and body of my dreams for years—a testament to the transformative power of habits, consistency, and support.

Now my passion lies in guiding other women towards their own success stories. If I could achieve this after years of struggle, why not you too?

Joining the Lean With Plants team has been a catalyst for my personal growth. Being surrounded by these women who are committed to growth and empowerment, has inevitably made my own growth trajectory soar. Beyond my work, you’ll likely find me engrossed in deep conversations at a coffee shop, enjoying nature on walks or hikes, hitting the gym, or pounding the pavement on a run. And when I’m not out and about, I’m indulging my creative side as a serial sewist, knitter, and all around fiber enthusiast.

Here's to embracing the journey, supporting one another, and realizing that it’s never too late—or too difficult—to start living the life you envision
