Hello my Positive Nuts,
What I once just called a hobby, has now turned into a dream job helping families with proper nutrition.
It has been fun working in the health and wellness field for over fifteen years. My experience has been working with clients who are overworked and stressed and want to improve their quality of life. I am a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist who has helped clients lose hundreds of pounds and take control of their lives for a healthy and happy future. I decided to become a Holistic Nutritionist after experiencing hormonal imbalances from adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism and other health issues from years of athletic competition, and body issues. I am proud to say that I healed myself holistically and wished to fulfill my passion for working with people, including young athletes, to improve their health and build a vibrant life.
I graduated from the College of Natural Medicine in Santa Cruz, California and received training at the Hyperbaric Neurologic Center, assisting the late Dr. Richard A. Neubauer, MD a pioneer in the field of Hyperbarics. My case studies included RSD, AUTISM, WEIGHT LOSS, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, TBI, AND PARKINSON’S DISEASE.
As I continue to offer individual health, nutrition and lifestyle coaching for women, men and children of all ages I also write. I am working on a new nutrition book – “Case Studies COVID-19 and the long-term chronic conditions such as effects of Autoimmune Diseases.” My favorite part of nutritional counseling is hosting our annual heart healthy events. In 2019, our group visited Rome taking a moment to relax and dine at AROMA overlooking the Colesseum, my second time back at this amazing Michelin starred restaurant at Palazzo Manfredi. I also organize monthly hands on events, sharing healthy meals, and organizing healthy grocery shopping tours – to farm excursions.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, I work with clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and rewarding. Please don’t say the word diet anymore as once you join Positive Nutrition you make a “lifestyle change” now please remove the word “diet” from your vocabulary! Together we’ll work to reach your health goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, reducing food cravings, increasing sleep, and maximizing energy. As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.
I am author of three nutrition books selling on Amazon. Sandy Pukel’s Holistic Holiday at Sea Vegan group showcased my book “Healthy is not a Size, it is a Lifestyle; Living GMO-Free in the 21st Century” onboard the MSC. Throughout the years I have volunteered at Women In Distress, Advisor on the Board of the Children’s Hypoglycemic Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.
