My 10-year training and competitive experience in Rhythmic Gymnastics has shaped me into the person I am today: a girl with a core, desire to learn and improve. But what’s mostly important – sport taught me hard work, discipline and how to manage my time and efforts to do best in everything I started… Once I’ve stopped training at 16 and focused solely on school, there was something missing in my life – the action, the energy, the necessity to juggle ten things at a time (as crazy as it sounds)! I “craved” an excitement, something to devote my mind to outside of the university. And this is how it all started…
As a thirty-something working single mom with a passion for cooking and nutrition, I seek a balance of mind and body daily. It’s not easy, but I have learned that if I put my mind to it, it is possible. It’s no secret that in order to live a long life, it’s important to be healthy!
As for a healthy body, there are so many ways I have learned to treat it right. Eating healthy and exercise is the key. I am very mindful about food choices. Also, I jog or do yoga a couple of times per week (when time permits). I must admit that I have not been a member of a gym since I was 18! On weekends, I attempt kayaking or biking leisurely. In Miami I love being outdoors and near the water.
After years of working in the corporate world and moving half way across the country, I decided to go back to school. I knew that I wanted to help people and at the same time find out a little about who I was too and school seemed the best place to do that. It was a step by step process. First I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and I was ready to head for a Masters degree, but I had the honor of having fantastic mentors who encouraged me to go all the way! Little did I know that I would become a Doctor of Psychology.
