Jaime F. Nappi is our founder and the executive director. She is a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and is preparing to take the board exam to be certified in Holistic Nutrition. Her passion for healing foods has been with her since the age of twelve, when she starting reading books and attending lectures and classes to learn more about nutrition and health. Years later after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, losing her beloved mother to cancer, learning of her father’s cancer diagnosis, and watching other family members battle diseases, she was determined to help her own body heal by changing her diet and incorporating a more holistic approach to healing. Through her journey, she has made a promise to help others prevent and manage their diseases. She has been fulfilling that promise and passion to serve others, by educating people on a holistic healthy lifestyle through cooking and nutrition classes and currently works with clients to achieve their optimal health. Jaime brings her knowledge and passion to this organization to ensure every woman at Patty’s House has access to good, healthy and nutritious meals during treatment.
Jaime currently lives in Laguna Beach, CA with her husband, Paul and their two dogs who they treat like spoiled kids, Ben and Jackie.
