About The Owner
Health, wellness, fitness, and nutrition have all been lifelong passions of mine. I am a Registered Nurse, Certified Health Coach and Licensed Massage Therapist with additional certification in Advanced Sports Massage and Medical Massage.
I have always loved working with people, helping to overcome pain, finding relief from symptoms and improving overall health and wellbeing. I have been interested in Holistic Medicine from a young age and after working for over ten years as a Nurse in Med/Surg, Oncology and Hospice I decided to go back to school and become a Licensed Massage Therapist. This has allowed me to help people with the use of my own bare hands.
After graduating from the Swedish Institute in New York City I gained experience while working as a Massage Therapist at chiropractic offices, sports clinics, sports events (such as the NYC Marathon and Triathlons), massage house-call services, and my own private practice. I am a member of AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) and am expanding my knowledge by learning new modalities through continuing education.
Movement has always been important to me. I started out as a trained professional ballet dancer in my teens and since then have been practicing running, boot-camp workouts, TRX training as well as calisthenics and crossfit, all while maintaining a regular hiking, swimming, yoga, and meditation practice. I am also a certified Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver.
As the daughter of a chef I was taught the art of cooking and Nutrition 101 at an early age. By age six I learned how to kill and steam a lobster, how to preserve most vitamins and enzymes when stir-frying vegetables and how to make Soufflé. I grew up helping my mother with our organic vegetable and fruit garden, growing our own food, canning and baking home-made bread, which was a big influence in my future food preferences. And since I was a student of the Rudolf Steiner School aka Waldorf School, I learned about the health benefits of a plant based whole food diet and holistic and organic nutrition basics early on. You could basically say that I was a health-foodie before that term even existed.
Over the years, I have had my own struggles in regards of food and health. I had adopted some unhealthy habits and had difficulty in providing myself with adequate work-life balance and self-care. With the assistance of a therapist and re-educating myself I was able to change my habits and incorporated a personal program of fitness and holistic lifestyle practices that helped me find my way back to a plant based diet and a healthy life.
This has led me to become a Certified Health Coach and I completed the coursework in Evidence-based Health Coaching for Healthcare Providers by the National Society of Health Coaches.
Since Photography is another passion of mine, I have combined photography and food in my recipe series that is being published on farm2delish.com, a recipe collection of healthy farm to table recipes inspired by fresh, seasonal and local products from the local farmers markets.
I love traveling around the globe, interacting with people, and learning about other cultures. In 2017 I have moved out of NYC and became a full-time nomad, traveling throughout the US and beyond with my fiancee. I am continuing to provide massage therapy sessions in New York and Florida on my travels through the East Coast.
I truly enjoy life’s journey and look forward to what’s yet to come.
Thank you for visiting bodono, we look forward to meeting you!
