Hi! I’m Petra, Owner and Founder of Happi Lives. Happi Lives is a family-focused support system here to facilitate nutrition changes to focus on a healthier & happier version of you & your family. I am a family nutritionist & lactation specialist educating for a healthy Oklahoma City.
I specialize in infant & prenatal nutrition, family & child health cooking, Gluten Free diets, weight loss, & a number of other health & nutrition concerns that you or a loved one may have. From weight loss, boosting your energy, eating right, or just feeling happy about your body & state of being, I believe that everyone can achieve a balanced & healthy lifestyle through small practical changes.
I’m Petra, owner & editor of Happi Lives. What is Happi Lives? It is a blogsite that is dedicated to health in the most complete & simplest form; to live a happy life filled to the fullest. This is only achieved through true health, full respect & entire love for ones’ own body & life. Happi stands for Health, Appetite, Physique, Personality, Inspiration, & are all parts of a whole in building all around health & contentedness. I came about this blog for a few reasons. A reformed graphic designer & advertiser, I have always had a passion for cooking & good nutrition.
As a marketer, I have seen our society & the way it manipulates what is true health & true beauty. I have seen friends, family, even myself, feel inadequate for a large part, if not all, of their life as a result. Not wanting to live my life in this way, I made a change; I wanted to start living free & to the best of my abilities, in essence, to live “happi”. This change has affected me in many blessed ways, so much it even encouraged a career change on my part. I am now a personal trainer & nutritionist, & have yet to look back.

The counseling sessions are highly individualized in order to accommodate your unique lifestyles & personal food preferences.
I felt run down and lacked the knowledge necessary to make healthy decisons when it came to eating. My health was affecting every aspect of my life. I called Petra and ever since, I feel like I have more control over my eating compulsions and my life.
Petra is a very talented and professional nutritionist and I recommend her services to my patients without reservation.
