It all started with my grandmother. Her love of food and trying new recipes is what brought me into the kitchen in the first place, and it’s what helped me cultivate my passion for developing recipes and food solutions based upon a healthy, sustainable, and supportive lifestyle. I remember coming home from summer camp requesting a long list of foods for her to make while I watched, memorized by her skill, passion, and creativity in the kitchen. At eight years old, I was making sauerkraut and other fermented foods with her, (before I knew how amazing fermented food was for your gut!) and I learned how to chop, grate, mash, and sauté all before I was 10.
At some point or another we’ve all made a bad decision about eating, but I’m here to show you that your story isn’t over, and you can change the way you view and relate to food! Don’t get me wrong, learning something new is challenging, but that shouldn’t stop you from going farther along your journey to wellness. I want to teach you how to have fun, try new recipes, and introduce new foods to your diet which will make you feel as great on the inside as you do on the outside.
As a Health and Wellness Consultant, Yoga Enthusiast, Personal Chef, and Restaurant Owner, I teach classes all over New York City, and have even been recognized in several media outlets for having created one of “the best veggie/vegan burgers in NYC!” I can make a pile of vegetables into a mouthwatering burger option, so I promise that I can teach you how to make food that’s both healthy and delicious! Contrary to what many believe, “good for you” and “good flavor” are not mutually exclusive.
My years as an executive chef and restauranteur have afforded the unique opportunity to develop a perspective from both a teacher and student’s standpoint, which I take with me when working with each of my clients. I work to craft dynamic programs based on individual needs regarding movement, increased mobility, pain and stress-reduction, weight loss, fitness, and lifestyle education.
You have the power to write your own story and develop the healthy lifestyle that will bring out the best version of yourself, and I want to help you get there. My goal is to inspire you to make the right decisions based on your health, your body, and your life.
