"As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." Nelson Mandela
Certified Integrative Nutrition and Fitness Coach
After years of battling an autoimmune disease, along with plenty of misdiagnoses, I went to a specialist who taught me the importance of diet and lifestyle. Not only in the treatment of the disease, but also in the management of it. I became so passionate about sharing my message of nutrition as preventative care, working with others who are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired! I've made a commitment to learn everything that I possibly could in terms of foods and lifestyle choices to best alleviate my symptoms rather than aggravate them.
Along with an autoimmune disease, I had spent much of my adult years hopping from fad diet to fad diet, one more restrictive than the last. I was living the all too familiar cycle of losing weight just to gain it back and then some. I worked hard to change my relationship with food and my lifestyle and I lost 75 pounds. My goal in working with clients who desire weight loss is to fit them into a program unique to them that is sustainable long term.
I graduated with a certification in integrative nutrition coaching from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition located in the heart of New York City. In owning a private nutrition and wellness practice, I'm blessed to be able to share my passion for a happy, healthy life with my clients on a daily basis.
