About

I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.  At the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I received a world-class education and studied over 100 dietary theories, lifestyle management techniques and cutting-edge coaching methods–with some of the foremost nutritionists and physicians in the world, including Dr. Bernie Siegel; Deepak Chopra, MD;  Marion Nestle; Dr. David Katz;, Sally Fallon; Dr. Mark Hyman; Dr. Andrew Weil, Geneen Roth and many others.

I will help you discover what approach works best for you at this point in your life. While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

The scoop on me: I was actually my own client.  During a two-year period, I experienced one stressful incident after another.  No sooner would I begin to recover from one event, another one would occur; there wasn’t even time for me to take a breath!   As a result, I gained weight and my blood pressure shot up. Always a physically active person, it became a challenge to walk even one block–and forget about climbing stairs!  I experimented with foods and non-foods –and I found out what worked and didn’t work for me.  I lost all of the weight, my blood pressure today is 100/60, my energy is, once again, ultra high–and I’m, once again, very physically active.

I also have degrees in journalism and communications as well as fitness certifications, and am the author of the forthcoming book, 25 Ways to Fire Up Your Day:  Increase Energy, Get More Done in Less Time, and Balance Your Life.

I refer to myself as the wellness educator for BOTH the 2-legged and 4-legged.  You see, I love animals. It’s more than that, though,  I’m always researching into their wellness issues, speaking to veterinarians and other pet experts.  To learn more, please visit: http://furryfriendshavefun.wordpress.com/

And, seriously, I’d love for you to sgin up for my free, twice-monthly newsletter, “Power Wellness.”  For your convenience, you can sign up here.
