About us

Steve and Melody have turned their research, education and passion for health into what is now

The Tactical Kitchen.  

Melody is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a

Classically Trained Chef

As a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and classical trained Chef with an A.A.S. in Culinary Arts, Melody has over 25 years of experience working as a Chef and as a Functional Nutritionist. She can show you how to keep it not only clean and delicious, but develop a dietary protocol to combat your biggest health concerns.  After spending years with digestive issues and eating a very low fat diet she found her body was trying to tell her it was time to change. She began researching for her own health and others in her family and discovered what Hippocrates knew, Food is Medicine! After losing her father to Parkinson's Disease in 2009 and seeing others in her family suffer from the same symptoms, she set her focus on Prevention through Nutrition. Using her knowledge of nutrition, her experience in health coaching, and professional culinary training, she will show you how to get your health back on track. 

Steve spent twenty-one years in the U.S. Air Force

as a Special Operations Combat Controller. He served all over the globe in combat and humanitarian missions. His job physically demanding, so staying in top shape was a requirement not a luxury. Steve is now using the knowledge he gained through 21 years of military training to help you get in shape. He is a ACE Certified Personal Trainer and focuses on the idea of functional fitness over traditional cardio and weights. Steve has fine tuned his approach to help you spend less time working out and more time enjoying the benefits of being in shape.
