ABOUT ME QUICK FACTS

  • I love sushi, wine, and chocolate!

    Confession …. Sometimes I have trouble
    controlling my intake of chocolate.

  • I struggle with sleep issues

    I feel your pain! I don’t always practice what I preach when it comes to turning off electronics at 10 pm.

  • I LOVE cycling

    I’ve done a lot of long rides, including the Gran Fondo. Little known fact… I’m obsessed with matching my cycling clothing to my bike.

  • Excercise is a big part of my past

    I was a certified exercise instructor & personal trainer for 15 years—that’s how I know exercise is critical for your overall health!

  • I love yoga!

    I never thought I would as I’m so high energy. But I find it has a calming influence on my body and mind and I crave it several times a week.

MY CORE VALUES

First and foremost

one-size does NOT fit all

We have different metabolisms, genetics, lifestyles, activity levels, even gut microbiomes!

if your not getting the results you want

try something else

What works for someone else may not work for you.  Keep your mind and your options open.

diets don’t work

behavior changes are the key

My mantra is to focus on making small changes. We’re not aiming for perfection here! Change usually happens in small steps.

it’s never too late

everyone is capable of change

I don’t believe in omitting foods (or wine for that matter!)  unless that is want YOU want to do.

MY STORY

“I’m passionate about helping women with PCOS”

I’ve been specializing in PCOS for the past 20 years. Despite the fact that PCOS is the most common hormone abnormality affecting women, there is still so little known about it. And even worse, the internet is full of misinformation. My mission is to spread awareness to health professionals, the lay public, and most importantly women with PCOS. Diet and lifestyle are the first line treatment for PCOS. My coaching uses real food and lifestyle and behavior changes to decrease your symptoms, help you meet your goals and live your best life.

I’d consider myself a pioneer in the field of nutrition for PCOS. I wrote 2 of the first nutrition articles on PCOS published in peer-reviewed journals in 2000 and 2002. And then went on to lecture on Diet and PCOS at the PCOSA conferences in NYC, San Diego, Philadelphia and Rye, NY.

In addition to giving presentations to women with PCOS, I also enjoy educating health professionals. I’ve lectured to the Long Island Dietetic Association, the Florida State Dietetic Association, the Greater New York Dietetic Association, the Westchester Rockland Dietetic Association, the New York State Dietetic Association, Villanova University as well as for several Infertility Medical Conferences.

As a frequent guest on podcasts and radio shows and a quoted PCOS expert in articles, I’m passionate about spreading awareness of PCOS.

I’m proud to say I’m on the Health Advisory Board of the PCOS Challenge. I take an active role in advocating for PCOS, and even got to meet with Congressmen and women on Capitol Hill and ring in the bell on the stock market! I’ve spoken for the past 3 years on Nutrition and PCOS at the PCOS Challenge annual symposiums.

Why am I so passionate about working with women with PCOS?
Because for the past 20 years, I’ve seen what many women have to go through to get diagnosed and treated. Then to be faced with an overwhelming amount of conflicting diet and lifestyle information on the internet.

I’ve had great success in helping women with PCOS meet their goals – whether it be to decrease carb cravings, lose weight, decrease their symptoms or get pregnant! I’m here to help you! Contact me today to get started.

l liked to have my fingers in many pots — corporate consulting, lecturing, writing and teaching exercise classes at night. Ultimately I got certified as a health and wellness coach to better help my clients develop the motivation and skills to help them make changes that really last.
