About Me

Like many other women, during my teenage years I struggled with food. I grew up in a very health-conscious family, playing sports and living a very active life. Even though I was at a healthy weight I thought I didn’t look good enough (good enough for what? right?).

The time passed and I moved from my hometown (Caracas, Venezuela) to the United States to get my master’s degree, that’s when the real shock came. Living alone for the first time in a foreign country took a toll on my body. I began to binge in unhealthy foods and then go for 6 + mile runs. I used to drink alcohol like the world was going to end and then eat some more because my brain was not thinking clearly. My skin started to change and I was definitely not happy with the way I looked but, more importantly, with the way I felt.

Twelve extra pounds, a master’s degree and a move to Chicago later, I realized that I was the only one who could break my bad habits, so I did. I went back to my roots and started eating the healthy foods I grew up with. I cut back on the alcohol and sugar and started making wiser decisions when going out. I also added yoga back into my life after two years without practicing, and that was the cherry on top.

I lost 5 of the pounds I gained when I first moved here and now I feel better than ever

Even though we always experience ups and downs, I’m constantly trying to improve as a person nourishing myself from the inside out.

In the summer of 2013 I left my career in advertising and moved to Savannah, GA. to become a Certified Health Coach. The same passion and commitment that transformed me into who I am today led me to follow my desire of helping other people to become their happiest and healthiest selves.

Every day I try to do what I love: prepare and eat delicious and healthy meals, run, practice yoga, educate, guide and inspire others through their personal journeys to achieve their goals and be their best.
