"It is far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has."
Hippocrates 400 BC
My interest in physical fitness started at a young age. I was obsessed with competition as an athlete growing up, and later as a performing artist, I trained to “preserve my instrument.” But as I got older I struggled with injuries, weight fluctuations and chronic exhaustion. I tried diets and medications and conventional treatments but I never felt like I was at my best.
I earned my first fitness certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) in 2004. Since then, I have earned five additional fitness certifications ranging from personal training, to functional movement and yoga, as well as four certifications in nutrition and healing. Over the past 12 years I’ve worked with physicians, Olympians, performing artists, pre and post-natal mothers, children, and physical therapy and rehabilitation patients.
Most recently, I served as the Nutrition and Exercise consultant of a high-end wellness clinic working with clients performing extremely sophisticated fitness therapy techniques such as VO2 max assessments, DEXA Scan for bone density and body composition, and ultra sound plaque scans. At other wellness centers I learned from collaboration with other practioners from doctors, chiropractors and acupuncturists to psychologists, body-workers and yogis.
