Leanne Hudspith, Programme Facilitator
Based in fabulous Mission Bay, Leanne is a Life, Business and Wellness Coach. After experiencing her own personal life challenges, Leanne decided to leave her corporate job to pursue her passion of strengthening individuals, couples and groups to live a healthy, authentic lifestyle. Having a daughter with life threatening allergies, Leanne had her own struggle with food and lost touch with healthy eating. She tried just about every ‘fad diet’ there was through her 7 year weight journey and Leanne found the need and want to ‘fall in love’ with food again. Through her experience in the corporate world both internationally and locally, Leanne understands how easy it is to fall into the ‘eat to live’ rather than ‘love to eat’ mentality. Using the Taste Success programme, Leanne is excited to teach you about simple nutrition for living the lifestyle you deserve. She will help and support you through each and every step of your journey of falling in love with food again.

Based on the North Shore of Auckland, Laura is a Skin Therapist and qualified Food Technologist who runs her own R&R Skin Care Clinic. At her clinic, she integrates her science background with advanced beauty therapy by counselling numerous clients through a variety of skin conditions. She is a firm believer that the skin’s appearance is the perfect indicator of what is going on inside our bodies (especially our gut!), and as a result has a unique and holistic approach to assisting clients on their skin-healing journey. As a self-proclaimed ‘foodie’, Laura appreciates wholesome food, which packs a flavour punch, and appeals to all of the senses. She loves the variety of the recipes within the Taste Success Programmes, which are super simple to follow and prepared with easily accessible ingredients.

Tracey Williams, Programme Facilitator
Based between her clinic in Titirangi and New Lynn, Tracey is a certified Weight Loss Consultant and qualified Chef.

This led to Tracey setting up her own clinic, The New You, in 2013. Being diagnosed with Coeliac disease in 2007 has meant Tracey understands fully how to maintain a gluten free diet easily and effortlessly. Having a nutrient filled diet with lots of wholefoods, vegetables and fruits is very important to Tracey and teaching this to her clients through her love of cooking and food, has been forefront of her client support. Tracey loves how Taste Success is focused of making food simple, with easy recipes, full support and ultimately better health. Having helped many people, Tracey is passionate about supporting you through your journey with empathy, encouragement, fun, and focused attention so you get the results you desire and deserve.
