A little about me
I graduated from Brooklyn College with a Bachelors Degree in Athletic Training. I also finished my Plan IV requirements and extensive study at Hunter College to be eligible for internship as a Registered Dietician, however I was never able to do an unpaid 9 month long internship, therefore, unable to pursue the RD exam. However, I did get certified as a Personal Trainer (ACE) a Health Coach (ACE), Nutrition Specialist (CNS), a Fitness Educator (CFE), a Golf Conditioning Specialist, a Kettlebell Instructor (by Kettlebell Concepts), and a TRX Qualified Trainer. I’ve also given interactive seminars on nutrition and fitness for healthcare clinics, Morgan Stanley, IBM, Alliance Bernstein, Peekskill Dentistry and the Hotel Union of New York where I had also provided one on one counseling.
I’ve written in the past for many magazines and websites about nutrition and fitness such as: Men’s Exercise, Natural Bodybuilding, and LiveStrong. I appeared on FIOS1 News for an outdoor boot camp segment, and a New Year’s Resolution segment, as well as on ABC NEWS Channel 7 for a home fitness training segment and NEWS 12 Westchester for a New Year’s Resolution home fitness training segment. I had a unique kids fitness DVD entitled Fantastically Fit Kids™ which won the Best Instructional Documentary Award in 2006. Most recently I was a Mountain Athletics Coach for The North Face. When I believe in companies that do good I like to help them out and so I am frequently hired by companies to speak about their products on my blog and social media accounts. I work as an independent group fitness instructor for The TRX Studio in Scarsdale, Pinebrook Fitness in New Rochelle and the YMCA in White Plains NY.
In the 1990’s I was a competitive bodybuilder who won the overall Constitution State Championships in CT in my very first competition. I placed in the top 5 for numerous other state and regional competitions for the 5 years I competed in bodybuilding. I still like natural bodybuilding but have stepped beyond it and like to incorporate many types of training in my routines.
Due to increased demand and business responsibilities I can only be hired on a limited time basis as a health coach and personal trainer, but don’t let it stop you from contacting me! I love helping people and want to be your health coach/personal trainer!
