Personal Motto: I am doing the best I can, and it is good enough!
Goals: My goals have shifted over the last several years in the fitness & wellness industry. After doing many years of health promotion work in the media and other public venues, it has become even more important to me to make a bigger difference in the industry. Beautiful physiques are enviable, but they are not what matters the most, in my opinion.
My personal goals include taking my education, expertise and experience and using it to create something bigger than myself in order to reach and help more people. I am working on finishing my first book with co-author, Mitch Suss, CEO of New York Health & Wellness/Balance 3H+ Medical Weight Loss Program (http://balance3hplus.com). My passion and purpose is in learning and teaching. I have many interests and I want to explore them all—business, psychology, productivity, lifestyle, nutrition, training, etc.
