Mary Sheila Gonnella, BCHN has dedicated her life to helping people reclaim their health. As a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Ayurvedic educator, she provides the information, insight, empowerment, and support you need to take charge of your health and live the life you were meant to live.

Mary Sheila taught at Bauman College Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts for 7 years where one of her students said “Mary Sheila is one of the best teachers I’ve encountered in all of my studies. She is not only passionate about the subject matter, but lives what she teaches from the depth of her being.”

As a lead up to her deep dive into all things nutrition, Mary Sheila developed a deep passion for basketry, wildcrafting, seaweed harvesting, farming, fermenting, and herbalism. She credits these practices to supporting her on her own healing journey, and deepening her connection to the earth. She loves to share health concepts through the holistic lens of earth medicine, supporting others to tap into their own vitality.

She creates a uniquely supportive experience for her clients and students. She sees clients one on one in her private nutrition practice, Occidental Nutrition, and teaches online community courses, including her Vitality Club, Blood Sugar Reset, 5 Pillars to Bone Health with Mary Beth Ray, and Edible Ayurveda with DeAnna Batdorff. Her passion makes nutrition concepts come to life, leading her clients to consistently successful outcomes.
