Your journey to healthier and happier.

Tired of the nonstop diet roller coaster? We understand.

We’ve been there and we’re ready to help you with one on one nutrition coaching.

Its time to build YOUR journey. One that is uniquely yours.

We understand.

After struggling with our weight for almost two decades, we lost a collective 230 pounds.

Now we want to help you.

Diets fail us because they are someone else’s plan of what is good for us. They don’t take in to account our unique needs and obstacles to overcome.

At 51 Bridges, we will equip you with the skills to build a personalized food and planning strategy that embraces the challenges of your dieting past. We will lean in where things typically go wrong so we can incorporate the right strategies into your plan.  Instead of handing you a random set of rules that work for other people. We’ll help you develop your own framework to develop a plan that yours. You calling the shots means you’ll stick with it and enjoy it, leading to a greater likelihood of success.

Let us help you build your journey.

What We Do

The 51 Bridges Program

We’re confronting once and for all where diets typically go wrong – rigid rules that leave us feeling deprived. 51 Bridges is personalized nutrition coaching centered around finding the right macronutrient balance (protein, fat, carbs) for you and your goals.

You’ll work with a coach who has been in your shoes. While most plans are centered around what you can’t eat or shouldn’t eat, we put you in control of building days with foods you love.

At 51 Bridges, we believe that eating well shouldn’t mean sacrifice. It does take a little bit of work – planning and strategy – along with the right tools and coach, of course.  

We give you a safe space to directly address things like managing triggers, tough times of day, eating out, dealing with donuts in the break room and social situations.

What You’ll Do

  1. Learn to plan, track and execute a great day of eating (one you build yourself).
  2. Learn the significance of weighing and tracking your food.
  3. Fuel your body based on personal preferences! We’ll help you discover what keeps you satisfied, full of energy and consistent. Everyone is different.
  4. Have more control.  You plan what you eat.
  5. While planning and tracking takes effort, you’ll learn about freedom within structure and get back in touch with your own hunger cues.
  6. Build positive food habits…forever.  The skills you learn will be eye opening and empowering. It will improve your relationship with food for the long haul.  
  7. Experience more enjoyment, not deprivation, when it comes to food so you can develop a plan you’ll actually stick with, not run from.

What Our Clients Say

“Coach Jen is extraordinary to work with. She is positive and encouraging at all times. She fully understands the challenge of losing weight and goes out of her way to support her clients. She listens carefully and presents creative options to help clients achieve success. If you follow her program, you can accomplish your goals. My favorite part of working with Jen was the one-on-one coaching sections. She definitely knows how to inspire and motivate people. I have no doubt anyone who works with her will have an exceptional experience.”


“I’ve been a part of 51 Bridges for a couple weeks now and the reason I love it is because Coach Jen’s approach is about real life. She understands that we all have goals, but they are different and we will all reach them at different paces. She makes it so easy to talk to her throughout the week, she offers tips from her own journey. No matter how many different ways you’ve tried (or services you’ve paid – I’ve done them all) Coach Jen and 51 Bridges is different.”


“51 Bridges Nutrition has helped me to meet my nutrition goals, but I’ve also gained so much knowledge in the process. I love the flexibility of this program and the wonderful community Jen has built. The camaraderie and support is so wonderful. I highly recommend this program!”


“I started this year of turning 50 with the plan to lose 20 pounds on my own. I figured that I have done every diet known to mankind so I should be good. By February 1, I was ready to give up. You know how that is…life gets in the way of all the work it takes. After seeing the amazing results my friend had and seeing how good she felt, I decided to reach out to Jen. It was the best decision I made all year. I needed the coaching (and counseling) to help me see how I could use the tools she gave me. I was able to truly see how my body responded to different foods in my journey at my age and activity level. That’s what I needed! I travel for work and that struggle is real but she really helped me see my goals and enjoy the process!! Thank you Jen! You are the best mentor, coach, and friend!! And if you are wondering, I lost 16 pounds within 3 months but most importantly I learned how to maintain while on vacation in Hawaii and enjoy all the goodness!!”
