Family, Relationship & Wellness Coach, Motivational Speaker, Blogger

I know that it is a mouthful but as a holistic person with many passions I just cannot help myself. It is my honor to work with, and learn from, amazing people such as Mark Hyman, M.D and Dr. John Gray and with great companies such as Vida Health and KCNH. I love to help people break through obstacles in health, in love and in happiness. A current passion project is working to unite all parents so as to provide support and information to the parenting community.

SINCE 2010

Doctor of Naturopathic Psychology

My love of learning is still prevalent all of these years so I kept studying while also building a private practice. I think it is really important to stay up on the latest information but perhaps I will allow my kids to take over the legacy of collecting degrees.


Ph.D. Natural Medicine

I love to help people to heal their physical and emotional issues naturally. I am not against allopathic medicine but instead feel that a partnership between the two will most benefit people. This is the heart of Functional Medicine.


Wellness Certifications

Prior to this time I had suffered through many health issues. I knew that had to change so with the help of some great people, and hitting the books, I went about changing that. The HUGE benefit was that I now had even more ability to help others. I earned certifications in such things as Holistic Health, Nutrition, Anti-Aging and more.


Wellness Coach/Youth Coordinator

Community activities, coordination and instruction for youth programs and adult health and social program development was my focus during this time. I loved giving back to the community and offering options for the entire family.

2001 - 2012

Licensed Child Care Provider

My love of working with families continued as my hubby and I got married, moved from New York to California and began to create our family. I thought what better way to share the love then to offer a family day care.

1993 - 2001

Research Scientist

At the Research Institute on Addictions, I worked on a multi-year research project studying the effects of alcohol use and/or abuse on the family unit. This solidified my desire to continue to work to help families.

1989 - 1993

Weight Loss Coach

During this time I worked at one of the most popular weight loss companies. It was a great learning experience about what works and what does not..


Juvenile Detention Youth Counselor

This was a fascinating job for me. I loved working with the children and their parents to bridge the communication gap. I also really started to recognize the connection between food and behavior.


B.S. Sociology

I was drawn to Sociology as I had always been fascinated by different cultures, religions and upbringings. I thrived in this environment. I became a Research Assistant and soaked up all knowledge that I could.


Cooking & Culinary Arts Certification

Once upon a time I wanted to own a restaurant. My parents sent me to culinary school for an intensive certification program. I learned a lot including that I did not want to own a restaurant.l.
