I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and I love what I do. I earned my Master's Degree in Diabetes Education and Management from Teachers College @ Columbia University.
My life's journey has not been without its challenges. However, engaging in wellness activities such as yoga, meditation, and exercise, as well as healthy eating, have helped me to stay focused, strong, energetic, and able to deal with whatever life throws my way. For me, it's about becoming the best version of myself from the inside out. As a single mom for most of my children’s lives, I’ve worked hard to get to where I am today, in my career and in my personal life. Along the way, there were lots of tears, lots of sweat, and a ton of praying. I don't give up in the face of adversity. I practice self-discipline and get it done, whatever it might be. I continually seek out new challenges in my life because when I am evolving and growing, I feel alive. I live by this mantra, "EVOLVE OR DIE."
I am a Certified American Council on Exercise (ACE) Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor and a Star-3 Certified Spinning instructor. Over the years, I've taught a variety of fitness classes including Step Aerobics, Zumba, Weight Training, Latin Aerobics, HITT, Aerobics, Stroller Fitness, and Spinning.
Spinning is my favorite.
When my youngest daughter was a baby, I started and ran my own stroller fitness company, I loved that.
I love to exercise, not only because of the effect it has on my body, but also because of the positive effect it has on my mind and on my emotions.
I love helping people to change their lives by helping them to improve their health. I stay on top of the latest nutrition-related research and trends to position myself as the expert that I am. Nutrition is a fast-growing and ever-evolving specialty, and for me, it is very important to stay on top of the latest research and trends for the best possible outcome for my clients.
My goal is to empower my clients by giving them the tools and the education they need to be able to reach their health and wellness goals with confidence.
Health is wealth, and without it, you risk not being able to enjoy getting older. Getting older is inevitable, but it is much better to grow older while still being able to enjoy doing many of the things you’ve always enjoyed or embarking on new adventures.
It is never too late to start. You can heal your body and maintain good health as you age. I've done that for myself and I've taught hundreds of other people to do the same.
Now I want to take all of my years of education and all of my years of experience working with clients 1:1 as well as in groups, and make a bigger impact in the world.
I particularly want to work with women because as a woman, I know how difficult it can be to carve out time to take better care of yourself on a regular basis. It starts with embracing the body you have and then, loving the heck out of it by nourishing it with wholesome and nutritious food, regularly, as well as engaging in physical activity on most days of the week. Relaxation practices such as yoga and meditation, and good quality sleep are also a part of the self-care equation.
When you love your body, it will love you back and reward you with many years of good health and a vitality that will last you a lifetime.
