Perfect Pear Coaching - Kerri Hawkins Nutrition LLC

Hello, I'm Kerri Hawkins...

registered dietitian, personal trainer, boy mom and wife. Nutrition and fitness always was a cornerstone in my life, but after having my son in April 2020, my body had changed. I had all kinds of aches and pains, and my confidence and energy were at an all-time low. I was in a survival mindset and was chasing perfection for my body and health. 

Changing my mindset to observing myself rather than judging myself set off a cascade of actions for me to ditch the perfectionism and focus my energy on nourishing by body and soul.  This has also improved the way I work with my clients and you.

I believe that reshaping and creating sustainable habits is the foundation to health and selfcare. The medical community and society place too much emphasis on weight as a predictor of health and feeling your best. My goal is to empower you to embrace self-care and nutrition that is flexible and specific to you. 

I help chronic dieters ditch perfectionism and focus their energy on nourishing their bodies so they can lower their risk for chronic disease without rigid rules and diets.

Unlike other quick-fix methods that emphasize stepping on the scale, I help my clients embrace curiosity and move away from judgment by reshaping habits so they can reclaim their health and embrace self-care that is flexible and specific to them.
