“Marisa has been an amazing help to me in my recovery from anorexia. I am a climber and full-time route setter that had been malnourished since 2014 and my body and mind were simply breaking down. I couldn’t sustain my passion for climbing, work was breaking my body down, and my life was being spent with a cloud over my head. Marisa showed me a different way to go about living. She helped me realize that proper nutrition and care for my body would help me climb stronger than ever. She has made this career of route setting sustainable for me. Most importantly, Marisa lifted that cloud that was sitting over my head for nine years.” ~Nolan Piper

“Marisa is simply the best. I have worked with a few nutritionists and dieticians in the past and Marisa blew away my expectations. Her care and knowledge have been more helpful to me than I could have ever thought. Thank you!” Vincent Marciano
