I help overwhelmed professionals transform the way they approach their well-being and self-care, helping them achieve more energy, better health and less stress.
I am a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach & Pilates Teacher with ten years experience in the well-being industry, and a award winning food & health blogger. My love for food and a holistic approach to well-being and movement, started at a young age in my native Italy where I was born and raised. There I experienced an integrated approach to health, the healing power of nutritional therapy and the passion for a simple yet delicious Mediterranean food.
I re-trained as Pilates teacher after few busy years spent working in the fashion industry in London. After suffering a major health crisis and I went back to what love for health and the study of the human body and the power of good food.
I have since trained many clients, working at many of the top studios and well-being clinics in London, with a clientele that has included high flying top executives, CEOs, busy mums and even an Oscar winner.
My philosophy is that being healthy is easier than you think, if you focus on what it is really important for you, and that you don’t need to deprive yourself to be healthy. Enjoying life and the food you eat are one of the keys for a healthy life, and you just need to find what works for you and create a strategy to get there
