I’m a Certified Holistic Health Coach who helps women with Autoimmune Disease get off the merry-go-round of symptom chasing and get onto the path of healing. I create programs that help my clients understand their body and it’s connection to food and their environment, lose weight, obtain the energy they deserve and make peace with their body. They stop suffering and can start living.
I live in NYC and used to work as a software development Project Manager for some of the major banks on Wall Street and I thought I was destined for the 20+year corporate grind. I did get to travel a bit though, working for periods of time in Milan and Madrid and visiting other really cool places like Brazil and South Korea. Underneath though, I had a feeling I was supposed to be doing something else…something more fulfilling for my soul.
That feeling nagged at me for a number of years and I even hired a coach to help me begin to figure out what I was put on this earth to do. I got a little more clear but still hadn’t foreseen health coaching as my dream career. I was smart enough to follow my intuition and not give up the search. I paid more and more attention to spiritual leaders, following my gut and taking action when it felt in alignment with the ways I was growing and changing.
I’m now my own boss, still living in Brooklyn, NY and helping women all over the world reclaim their health with my signature programs.
I firmly believe every person is capable of living up to their fullest potential when they choose to live in alignment with their talents, gifts and purpose. I’m passionate about making sure women deliver their gifts to the world because those gifts are needed.
A few years ago I was in my mid-30’s, suffering from a myriad of symptoms and stuck in a corporate job I no longer enjoyed. I felt trapped, miserable, unattractive, fat, heavy, depressed and unhealthy. And when those feelings got unbearable, I did what I do best – I took action.
Of course it wasn’t smooth sailing from the door. I wasted lots of valuable time, money and energy doing things on my own with Dr. Google! Trying to fit my unique body in other people’s solutions — no wonder nothing worked.
Eventually I smartened up and began working with functional medicine doctors and health coaches. I started to understand what was going on in my body. To make the shifts in my diet and lifestyle that would bring me relief and invite pleasure back to my life. I started to see and feel REAL results and soon my pain became my passion.
I invested 3 years educating myself in holistic living, functional nutrition and transformational coaching. I studied and honed my coaching skills and expanded my awareness of functional nutrition at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Holistic Nutrition Lab and Holistic MBA.
I’m finally doing work I love. I love serving others, serving my community and making an impact on the world through holistic living and wellness. The women I serve are passionate, creative, loving, compassionate, strong and determined to be successful. That’s who I am and how I love spending some of my time, what about you?
I’m not a perfectionist about anything, especially food. I love to eat! I’m a firm believer in enjoying a little indulgence in life – it’s part of what makes life fun, interesting and pleasureful! You WILL see me sipping a margarita or enjoying a glass of red wine. Pepperoni pizza is STILL my favorite food and I do enjoy it from time to time.
I’m still searching for a form of exercise I love…..for now, I just try to get done what I need to get done so I keep feeling great! 🙂 My idea of a great vacation contains beautiful beaches, big pools, gorgeous suites, lots of sun and great food. No kids and no fur babies – yet! As soon as I can, I’m getting a mini-Schnauzer!
I love starting Sunday by watching Oprah’s show Super Soul Sunday and finishing it up with a full day of NFL football. I’m a NY Giants fan through and through – Go G-MEN! 🙂
It’s taken me a long time to arrive where I am. I’ve definitely taken the road less traveled and I wouldn’t have had it any other way! Cheers to you!
I do exercise even though I’m not totally in love with it all of the time…
