Originally from Australia, I’ve been living in New York City for 17 years.

Growing up around alternative health and a creative natural lifestyle, I played in (really loud) rock bands in the 80’s and 90’s, and got into skiing and Natural Hygiene about ten years ago. I actually went totally “raw” for a couple of years, but then diversified.

I have found that eating all the healthy food in the world will not make a person healthy (or happy) if they’re stressed or too tired, or practicing lots of negativity, etc, which can happen in various ways. There are several other important elements which get overlooked.
Some balance of body-mind-spirit is key.

That said, I personally eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, and practice food combining, which is unpopular but surprisingly effective for just about whatever ails you (and me).

Taking good care of the equipment:
A motivating factor for me to live a healthy lifestyle is that, as a 51-year-old who likes to be active, I need to take good care of myself so that my knees, etc, don’t hurt. At age 40 I struggled daily with fatigue, aches and pains, gout, and discomfort in general. As an on-going endeavor, cleaning up my diet and making healthy lifestyle choices helps me reduce inflammation and stress, increase vitality, and also benefits cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, and digestive functions (gut health is key!). The good news is, there is a natural way out of most ailments, and we don’t have to do it alone.

My training:
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized health routine that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals, and that will help you to feel your very best.
