My Training

I trained with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) where I've learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between. My 200-hour training was with Pure Yoga US in 2011, since I have obtained 190 continuing education hours in various topics, including Yoga for Fertility, 95-hour Prenatal certification, Vin & Restorative to name a few. I've completed additional trainings with Integrative Women's Health Institute (IWHI) in their Optimal Fertility Program: Preconception Detoxification and Preparedness Program,  IIN's hormonal training course, and IWHI’s endometriosis masterclass. Currently, enrolled in Aviva Romm’s Integrative & Functional Medicine Training Program.

I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including: 

  • Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition;

  • Deepak Chopra, MD leader in the field of mind-body medicine;

  • David Katz, MD, MPH, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center;

  • Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair of nutrition at Harvard University;

  • Mark Bittman, food writer for The New York Times and bestselling author; and

  • Joel Fuhrman, MD, family physician and leading expert on nutritional healing

My health coach education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes to promote fertility and health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results for your entire life. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you: improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness. My yoga education will also be integrated as helpful tools to decreasing stress, anxiety, heartache and disappointment that often comes along with this very difficult journey.


After each session together, my goal is for you to leave feeling lighthearted, less stressed, motivated and inspired to get yourself closer to the family you dream about.  As someone who is experiencing similar challenges with infertility, we will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
