ABOUT

Hi, I’m Sonja Seiler and I can’t wait to feed you.

I have a feeling my most aligned collaborators and clients are the ones who love a hearty About page. I’m someone who tends to make decisions with my soul, especially when it comes to whom I trust to tell my story. Here’s a bit about mine, so you can interact accordingly.

I’m a professional nurturer, devoted lover of candlelight, harvest tables and butter.

about ME

I have a clipping on my vision board at home that reads: “If you want to see my soul, eat my food.”If I were to tell my story through food, I’d be…

My food and hospitality skills are thanks to: my beloved parents, who hosted dinner parties often and included my sister and I since we were babies; a childhood spent making artisanal mud pies; high school summers working at a from-scratch bakery; a BA in theatre & drama studies; 14 years in high level arts administration and managing a residential student care facility; reading cookbooks like novels; 15 years spent in regular therapy; 2 years of running monthly supper clubs; 9 years of hosting my own retreat and cooking at other retreats and events; a healthy dose of trial and error; earnest self study.

For the safety of both you and your guests, I am both SmartServe and Food Handlers’ Certificate certified.

"Sonja is a visionary. A nurturer. A beautiful, bountiful, blissful soul. I met her online {as we do these days} and followed her {soul’s} path on IG. I was pulled. Drawn to her. Instantly. Her words. Her purpose. I knew I had to attend the Nurture: A Retreat this past May. The weekend was MAGNIFICENT. Really, that word does not do it justice. The experience was unsayable."

Sonja Seiler Nurture Founder

our history

How did Nurture start? A decision to turn right instead of left. Everything we’ve built has grown from this one choice.

January, 2015. I was on the streetcar and got off at my usual stop. Instead of heading home, I felt this tug to turn right. I looked up and caught eyes with a woman behind a storefront door. She started waving at me, beckoning me to come in.

“Hi, my name is Heather and I’m in the business of making women’s dreams come true. Who are you? What’s your dream?”

Was this some fairy godmother? A good witch? A sales pitch?
