MEET THE FOUNDER, VALERIE AGYEMAN
My name is Valerie Agyeman and I am Women’s Health Dietitian and Founder of Flourish Heights. My passion for nutrition developed a decade ago. Once I discovered the power of nutrition in achieving good health at a young age, I never looked back. That was the best decision that I have made yet.
My mission and God given purpose is to empower women in their health and wellness through education. I help women truly understand the powerful relationship between what they eat and how their body looks, feels and functions so they can make more wiser, conscious choices and establish a healthy relationship with food and their body. I know that once they achieve this, they will live their most vibrant life, thriving and flourishing heights.
I am here to encourage and inspire you to prioritize your health. Today is your day to plant your health on higher ground, so let’s do this together!

WHAT IS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN?
Registered Dietitians are qualified health professionals who are credentialed by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) to assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public health level. Dietitians assess and alter nutrition based on an individual’s medical condition and nutritional needs in collaboration with the healthcare team.
OUR NUTRITION PHILOSOPHY
Our nutrition philosophy encourages all women to plant a seed of commitment towards their health and wellness. We want you to take small steps to live your healthiest, most vibrant selves, fulfilling your God given purpose in good health.
Eating is an act of self-care, it should be enjoyed in a way that makes you feel good, not shameful. Nourish to flourish. It’s vital for women to nourish a healthier relationship with food and take care of their bodies by honoring it, while finding a health routine that works for them and doesn’t fit someone else’s standards.
PLANT YOUR HEALTH ON HIGHER GROUND
Flourish Heights promotes women’s health and wellness. We encourage you to take small steps each day towards a fruitful life. We believe self-love is an essential part of growth. Life isn’t about unnecessary restrictions. Life is about moderation, balance and maintaining a healthy relationship with food. As human beings, we represent seeds and every day is an opportunity to learn, grow, and bloom as much as we can.
The Flourish Heights lifestyle is about planting your health on higher ground. When you plant your health on higher ground you feel empowered, energized, and elevated. A Flourish Heights lifestyle is one that you should embark on. Why? It will not only allow you to see the fruits of your labor in your body, but will allow you to live your God given purpose in good health.
Flourish Heights serves as a resource to provide you with credible nutrition and wellness information, life changing learning opportunities and a community and safe space.
“Let your wellness journey be like a grape; sweet, purposeful and overflowing in abundance.”
