Personalized wellness consultant, coach, author, and expert
I have spent four decades exploring how to hone the body, mind, and spirit to become healthier, happier, balanced, and more productive. I believe in personalized lifestyle solutions; every company, institution, and person is unique and deserves specialized attention.
As a child, I trained as a gymnast under Russian coaches – an intensive experience that taught me discipline and how to work incrementally to achieve mastery. But it was my deep study of yoga and nutrition that gave me insight into the importance of balancing all aspects of my nature and character, beyond just the physical, and, that allowed me to understand how to enhance my own well-being so I could help others do the same. While honing my body, I examined the traits critical to my success and which I now integrate into my methodology. They are: ambition, passion, discipline, courage, resilience, balance, resourcefulness, and self-acceptance.
I grew up in New York City where I live with my teenage daughter. I am the first to reap the benefits of my holistic methodology, with resources of energy to enjoy yoga, running, tennis, skiing, hiking, and various other workout and athletic modalities, as well as mindfulness, breathing, and meditation practices. My lifestyle balances wellness with family, friends, and professional engagements harmoniously.
I work with individual clients, corporations, and institutions to help discover, acknowledge, and ultimately elevate their health and well-being. Together, we identify and assesses needs and goals. Then, we create and implement strategy to achieve them. While I work across five pillars of health—plant-based nutrition, exercise, yoga, mindfulness, and meditation—our work touches all aspects of life.
