While living in New York, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, suffered chronic back pain, arthritis and the carpal tunnel syndrome. By changing and adapting my food habits I was able to avoid surgery and I'm currently living a very healthy life along with my husband and my four step children.
My commitment to health, wellness, food justice and sustainability goes simply beyond business, as I volunteer for several non-profit organizations.
I truly enjoy inspiring new generations in appreciating their heritage, diverse backgrounds, and in respecting our Mother, Earth. I taught at Manhattanville College Animal Behavior and World Languages. I currently teach at SUNY Sullivan College Nutrition, Food Ethics, Biology & Forensic Science. I provide Cooking Demos, Cooking & Gardening Classes as well as Health Coaching Consultations to communities.
