I love assisting people on their hero’s journey towards self-transformation.  A passion which is born comes partly from personal experience – I view my own life as a series of self-transformations. I have 20+ years of education, training and experience, including being the CEO and founder of two health technology start-ups and global wellness consultant to Fortune 100 corporations. 

I have also practiced integrative medicine at NYULangone Health, Lincoln Recovery Center, Mount Sinai Health, and Hackensack Meridian Health, as well as in my own private practice. I have taught many rising young clinicians and administrators in masters and doctoral programs at California Institute for Integral Studies, Saybrook University, and Kean University.  

My education includes earned doctoral-level degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (Pacific College of Health Studies), Mind-Body Medicine (Saybrook University), and Healthcare Management (Touro University), Healthcare Law (American University), a master’s degree in Public Health (Rutgers University), and certifications in Integrative Health Coaching (Columbia Teachers College/Institute for Integrative Nutrition), Biofeedback (HeartMath Institute), and Yoga (Kripalu Institute). 

I am also board-certified in Acupuncture, Lifestyle Medicine, and Health & Wellness Coaching and have earned (and continue to earn) certifications in a multitude of health and life interventions. 

Life is a process of stages, phases, and changes.  My personal transformations include marrying into a large and loving Italian family, being a mother to two beings who are now in their 30s, being a daughter who lost a mother to cancer and who currently lives 2 miles from her aging father, as well as a wife of 40 years to the love of my life who I met at age 17.  Each of my life transformations was inspired by different challenges such as changes in my own or a family members’ health, shifts in my life purpose, or changes in the world around me. 

In each case, I guided myself with an intentional system of change that integrates evidence-based methodologies, which is the same coaching process I will use during our work together. I am honored to guide your transformation!
