At a young age, she went on to launch a unique macrobiotic and vegetarian catering business. Seeing the impact of restorative eating on the health of her clients fueled her passion to pursue with zeal both bachelor and master of science degrees in nutrition, with the goal of helping people improve quality of life through long-term therapeutic lifestyle changes.

She is an American Council on Exercise certified personal trainer and is certified in weight management from the American Dietetic Association.
