I have a diverse background that encompasses experience in the health industry over the past six years. My education and work in both national and international arenas have made it possible to follow, live and fulfill my true passion to support others in being happy and healthy, through my work as a holistic health coach and laughter expert.
After graduating with a business and marketing degree from the University of Tampa, I packed my bags and moved to Australia on a working visa, where I worked with a Naturopathic physician at a holistic weight loss center, as a marketing assistant. While always interested in "health," profound shifts in true "wellness" began to take place within myself.
My passion for holistic approaches to everyday life continued to grow and I sought out any type of training, books and educational platforms that I could get my hands on. I become a certified Reiki Master and an Advanced Theta Healing Practitioner. I enrolled in coaching workshops with Accomplishment Coaching and nutrition courses at Tai Sophia Institute. I received my certification in Laughter Yoga through Dr. Kataria’s school of Laughter Yoga.
I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.
During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
