Where could your career take you if you had the energy, health, and clarity to rise to the top?


my name is Laura McWilliams.

I am a cook, chef, baker, pastry chef, teacher, dancer, and holistic health coach. I was born and raised on Whidbey Island, and have spent my entire adult life in the Pacific Northwest, from Bellingham to Portland, to Orcas Island. I love the culture, I love the people, I love the food. And I love the industry. These days, wellness is totally my jam. I eat great, take very good care of my body, and I am passionate about spreading health education through the industry. I design programs that excite and inspire. I want to be a role model for kitchen workers everywhere- it is possible to do the work that you love and still be healthy. Get in touch with me if you would like to know more about how I can help you or your restaurant get on track to great health. 


Why am I a coach?

I believe that it is possible to lead a healthy life and still do the amazing work that you do. I believe that the industry is ready to go to the next level, to become more sustainable for the people who work in it. There is no reason why restaurant workers need to be doomed to a life of unhealthy eating and drinking and getting fat and sick and old.  We are the strongest, most capable people that there are. We can do better. I want to elevate the industry. One kitchen at a time.
