I believe everything in life contributes to who you are. And everything that has come before has led me to this profession.
I received my training to practice Holistic Health Coaching at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, which is the only nutrition school integrating all the different dietary theories – combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts like Paleo diet, organic foods and whole foods, the glycemic index, the Zone diet and raw foods. I hold a certificate from the Columbia University Teachers College and I am certified by the American Academy of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).

In addition to consulting with private clients, I assist Dr. Bruce Sokoloff, MD a functional medicine internist with Total Access Medical, with health and nutrition coaching. Find out more about Dr. Sokoloff’s practice, visit Total Access Medical.
Recently, I received my certifications as a Reiki Master, an Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner (essential oils), and to administer physical vascular therapies using a patented bioenergetic FDA Class I medical device.
Lastly, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Sciences from Wilmington University and served as a certified parent educator with the Parents as Teacher’s Program, a nationwide program to educate first-time parents in the developmental aspects of their children. I am a mother of two adult boys and have been married for 30 years!
Growing up in a family-owned catering and restaurant business, I have developed a passion for all types of foods, food preparation and entertaining. Over the years though I have grown to understand the effects of food on lifestyle and health. I practice yoga, pilates, meditation, and hypnotherapy to help me stay calm and stress-free. I have personal experience with food allergies and gluten and dairy sensitivities. Our family has also managed children with ADHD, digestive disorders, and learning differences. You are not alone. Together we can help you and your family stay healthy!
