For most of my life, I’ve been interested in food and nutrition. Not just because I enjoy a great meal (which I do!), but because I’m also fascinated by the ways in which what (and how) we eat can affect everything from weight and fitness to attitude, energy level, and long-term health.
In 2005 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, which led me to pay closer attention to how I treat my body. It seems like almost every day, there’s something in the news about our food supply, and the things we eat. The more I read, the more convinced I became that learning how to make better informed choices about diet and nutrition was essential. Then, when I turned 40, like so many other people I found it to be a big milestone. I was inspired to embark on a new adventure – studying to become a Health Coach.
So I began my certification at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition – it’s been an informative and life-changing journey. Working with women to understand and help guide their nutritional habits fits perfectly with both my professional goals, and my personal interests. While seeing clients one-on-one, I’ve been amazed at how even small changes can help women both look and feel better.
I currently reside in Westchester, New York, have been happily married for 19 years, and have two wonderful children. And a mostly well-behaved dog.
