PATRICIA CAZARES

Certified Nutrition Coach, Reiki II Practitioner & Managing Member

From a young age, Patricia (Tricia) was fascinated with holistic approaches to self-care. Early days of exploring meditation, yoga and exercise to manage stress, planted the seeds for being an advocate for Preventative Care and fostering Tune Up Holistic Care. Part of her role includes operations management and with a BA in Visual Arts, she manages creative direction. She finds it a privilege to be able to apply her organizational skills & creativity with her passion for preventative care. Learning about nutrition brought Tricia full circle in her search for effective health strategies. Applying that knowledge had a profound effect on her mental and physical health. It's what inspired her to get certified to become a nutrition coach and help others, who just like herself, have felt stuck or confused about how to move forward. Patricia takes a holistic approach to coaching & facilitating and finds value in considering all dimensions of wellness (physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and environmental) when offering support.  She lives and works in Vallejo and enjoys visiting Yosemite whenever she gets the chance.
