A bit about me, I’m a wife, mother, sister, and best friend and I love to have a good time!
Born and raised in New York, I recently made the “big” move to Southwest Florida-& loving the sunshine.
My search for optimal health and wellness has taken me on an exciting journey, and I’m inviting you to join me. Together we can unlock the keys to your well-being!
While growing up, my self-image left a lot to be desired. All I can remember is this awkward- looking, chubby kid staring back at me in the mirror. As a teenager, I became a bit obsessed with food. I “thought” I was eating a healthy diet but realized I was eating-on-the-run way too much. As a result, I suffered with bouts of IBS during my college years and was put on a plethora of pharmaceutical drugs! I soon realized none of these drugs made me feel any better (I was repeatedly told nothing was “medically” wrong with me).
This went on for quite some time and I slowly learned how to manage my symptoms.
I was now working my way up the corporate ladder when I found out that my marriage was unraveling. Suddenly, I was juggling career and being a single-mom to a pre-schooler. Life became very busy and hectic and I was looking for shortcuts. I realized I was fueling my body with caffeine and junk to get me through the day. I knew better, but I was overwhelmed by stress and exhaustion. And my IBS returned with a vengeance. It was time for me to take control of my life and manage my health and stress levels. More importantly, I had to learn to be totally comfortable in my own skin!
I started exploring the world of alternative health and what I felt was right for my unique body.
That was a turning point in my life. I decided to take several conventional and alternative health classes. I hold a degree in Psychology and Education from Hofstra University in New York, and I later went on to become a nutritional counselor. This led me take more coursework through Spencer-Ellis & Nesta Certified where I obtained my certificate as a Holistic Life Coach and Weight Loss Specialist. Finally, I decided to tie it all together and enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York where I was trained in over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. I am a member of the International Health Coach Alliance and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners where I am recognized as an expert in the health field as a Holistic Health Practitioner.
Today I help clients nourish their mind and body for weight loss and optimal health and wellness transformations by focusing on their uniqueness.
Come on—what are you waiting for?
