Since 2015, she is the creator and blogger at La Consuelo, a webpage dedicated to healthy eating and living, as well as the co-founder and CEO since 2017 of TriSanna Peru, Health Coaching business based in Lima – Peru where, together with her partner, she creates programs, workshops, cooking classes and private Health Coaching sessions in which she helps her clients to regain their self-confidence, empowering them and helping them leave behind bad habits and acquiring new and better ones, not only regaining their ideal weight but their overall health.
She likes to travel, hiking in the mountains, the beach, music, yoga, cooking for her friends and spending time with her dog, Braulio.
In 2017, after attending a Functional Medicine Symposium, Denisse discovered Whole30 which she initially used to deflate her shoulder and avoid an operation, but which eventually freed her from migraines she suffered since she was 8 years and which many neurologists had categorized as "chronic" and "without a cure." She went from taking 6 pills daily and suffering from gastritis, to not taking any, deflating, improving her joints damaged by hyperflexion and above all, to come to terms with ood after years of eating disorders which, while already controlled, were still dormant. Thus Whole30 opened a wonderful new world for Denisse and she wanted to share it with the world, not only applying her knowledge in Health Coaching, but also through cooking workshops as she firmly believes that perfect health can be obtained through a correct, balanced nutrition like the one you get through Whole30 and Food Freedom.
Denisse specializes in helping people have a better relationship with themselves, including with their food and environment, creating new and better healthy habits that will allow them to be their best version, healthier and happier, making sure these changes can last over time.
"I firmly believe that Whole30 came into my life to transform it completely. It taught me to have a healthy relationship with myself and with my environment, with what I eat and what I do, helping me make conscious decisions about my diet and health. Whole30 freed me from the horrific migraines I suffered for 30 years and has helped me discover a wonderful life, without pain or suffering, even incentivizing me to follow my dreams and not treat Health Coaching as a hobby, but as a lifestyle and career. Whole30 is definitely something that deserves to be known by more and more people because it’s an enriching, empowering and liberating experience at the same time!”
