With some modifications to my diet and Amanda’s knowledge of the relationship between food and its impact on the body my acne disappeared.
I approached Sage because early in my pregnancy I was experiencing some pretty severe acne and I was looking for some healthy and non-chemical solutions that were safe for me and the baby. A close friend of mine was working with Amanda and highly recommended her. The results (although not overnight) have been pretty amazing. With some simple modifications to my diet and Amanda’s knowledge of the relationship between food and its impact on the body my acne disappeared and I am feeling much more confident and healthy. One thing I especially liked was Amanda’s personal attention and focus on my individual concerns. My experience with Sage has been wonderful and I look forward to additional coaching going forward. I would highly recommend Sage to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and caring team who are 100% focused on you. - A.S., 33
she has helped open my eyes to the health choices that have been keeping me from my goals.
Amanda has been amazing at helping me learn more about food and nutrition. Through logging and discussion she has helped open my eyes to the health choices that have been keeping me from my goals. I am more aware of how my food choices make me feel and have started making long term changes that are leading me to the health and the body I want. I'm grateful to her! - K.S., 31

We have slowly eliminated refined sugar from our house and I have seen a really positive change in my kids.
I started working with Darci to create a healthy balance in my life and the life of my family. I mainly wanted to make sure that I am developing a healthy love of food for my 3 children. During the course of our coaching sessions, Darci has helped me realize how hard I am on myself when it comes to making the “right” choices around food and that life isn’t black and white when it comes to decisions. We all have slip up days but I needed to learn to not beat myself up when I did have a bad eating day. We have also been focusing on making time for me. As a mom and professional in the service industry, I constantly put myself last. Last to eat, last to workout, etc. I now have learned how to ask for help from the people around me so that I can do the things I enjoy such as cooking and baking, working out, being mindful and learning how to do self reflection.
Darci has seen me at my lowest point and has lifted me back up countless times. I am now at a place where I am optimistic about the future. I am making better choices for myself and my family. My kids enjoy helping pick out meals and even prepping them. We have slowly eliminated refined sugar from our house and I have seen a really positive change in my kids. I have been consistent in working out and am noticing a change in my body. I am managing my stress levels better and instead of reaching for a bag of candy for stress relief I workout or take a walk with my kids.
I am still a work in progress but having Darci’s support is instrumental to helping me move forward with my goals.” - A.C .,41
I recommend Darci to every female friend I have. I am so in awe of her amazing energy and ability to coach & lead that I am practically a walking billboard for Darci these days.
For years, I have been the ‘yes’ girl, the ‘I got it’ girl, the ‘I’m good, don’t need any help’ girl. In an era where we take on more, do more and well, just ‘more, more, more’ – I’m sure there’s a collection of you out there that live the same way or know someone that does. THAT, was me. Until, I met Darci. As a single female, running now two companies that I started myself and one almost 13yrs old, I have constantly run in male driven industry that has always forced me to prove my abilities, my worth and talents. While I celebrate my successes and work very hard to achieve them, my industry has driven me to reach for more with each turning year as an entrepreneur. In turn, has also driven much of my personal life to run at the same speed. Much of this speed worked fairly-well for me, until recently.
I said to a girlfriend less than a year ago ‘I wish someone had written a book about turning 40. I would have purchased ten of them!’ At thirty-eight, I started to see the change. And then, slowly as I entered my forties, I had started to wonder why the same ‘never eat, eat on the run, or eat once a day’ eating patterns, the working out at ‘mach’ speed, the no sleep routine and the loads of coffee that kept me awake all through my twenties and thirties routines were not efficiently powering my 40 year old self anymore. But instead of investigating my patterns thoroughly, and because I’m a ‘do it all myself’ kind of girl, I tried on a zillion new diets, exercise routines and more to find my own solution. Ultimately, the results I expected to see and what had really worked for me just decades earlier, was not working. Instead, I started to see other areas of my life affected – starting with my personal relationships, my self image and in the end, my peace of mind. Enter Darci.
Darci was an attendee of many of the classes I taught (I teach wine ☺). Each time I would see her, we would talk and connect and well, the conversations felt natural and real. Until, one conversation – I shared a good majority of ‘my stuff’. The ‘turning 40’ bit, the crazy running schedule, my lack of sleep and my horrible panicked exercise routine. In a very kind and gentle way, Darci suggested we try out some coaching together. I, of course, hesitated, thinking – how was someone really going to help ME change all of THIS (pointing to my head and overall body)?? But, as I am with most experiences in life, am a pretty open person and gave it a shot.
Let’s start here…if you don’t know Darci, let me begin by saying that our first conversation lasted over two hours. In a very natural progression, I felt as though I had just poured out my life’s story. Darci’s empathetic, authentic, caring and exceptionally giving personality made me feel as though she knew exactly where I was coming from. Within hours, Darci had given me a new eating routine, supplement recommendations (all natural) and had given me ideas for reorganizing my exercise, personal ‘me’ time and more. Month after month, we built upon the last goals and created more. And with each turning month, came more self-improvement, peace and confidence. Today, almost six months later – I feel as though, I don’t even know where life was ‘BD’ (before Darci). I’m not here to say that I am perfect, that I don’t slip back into my old red zone self when the going gets tough or that I am the perfect picture of health & wellness. But I am – stronger, more at peace, more thoughtful, and have a new set of tools (that I reach for more easily) that allows me to be more on point, set goals and live in a more calming colored zone, than the constant red line of my past. After spending an entire life reading every self-help book, trying every new skincare line, diet fad, exercise trend and thinking ‘I got this’, life never truly has seemed as clear as I work towards my goals today, at 43. Thanks to Ms. Darci, my ‘I got this’ has new meaning. And for that, I am grateful. I recommend Darci to every female friend I have. I am so in awe of her amazing energy and ability to coach & lead that I am practically a walking billboard for Darci these days. If this doesn’t strike a cord as to finding your own raw individuality, then maybe take one more really good look in the mirror, even if you think ‘I got this’. ☺ — L.M., 43
