Aloha! I live in Hilo, and I have been a Big Island resident for ten years. I fell in love with Hawai’i from the moment I landed here! I have so much love and respect for the beautiful culture and land that we are blessed to live on. I am currently attending Quantum University in Oahu, and I will be graduating with my Post-Baccalaureate in Holistic Health Sciences, Master, Doctorate and PhD in Natural Medicine, in October 2024. My passion is to heal myself and my community through food, movement and meditation!
I was born and raised in Maine, in an Italian/Irish family so food was very important! I moved to San Francisco in 1999, where I was exposed to a much healthier lifestyle. While living In Oakland, I managed a vegan restaurant called Prism Cafe, and I also worked with Eco Green Cuisine Chef Bryan Au. Becoming vegan and incorporating raw foods into my diet changed my life.
While living in San Francisco I received my BA in Politics and Dance. I also studied Afro-Brazilian dance, and I danced with Agua Dance Company. I combined my activism and dance when I performed and wrote poetry for the political dance ensemble Dancers Without Borders.
In 2007 I moved back to Maine to help my father heal from cancer. I graduated in 2012, from the Academy of Healing Nutrition, with my certification as Holistic Health and Nutrition Counselor. I combined my love for Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda to create my first nutrition coaching business called UNAHT-Uniting Nutrition, Art and Healing for Transcendance!
In addition to my practice, I developed my own curriculum called Eating the Elements. I taught this course in adult education centers, schools, and at day programs for adults with disabilities. I received my Zumba Instructor certification in 2012, and I began teaching at the YMCA, and at day programs for adults with disabilities.
For the past ten years I have taught dance, ELA and Special Education in local East Hawai’i schools. I love learning how others learn, and I enjoy teaching nutrition and cooking workshops to children and adults. Currently, I have combined my Quantum University schooling with my nutrition counseling, and the Creative Quantum Coach was born!
Other passions of mine include spending time with my beautiful daughter and my dwarf rabbit Bunz, traveling to Maine to see my family, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, watching live music, choreographing dance, poetry, traveling, sailing, video editing, activism, meditation, and geeking out on Quantum Physics and healing!
I’m thrilled to begin my new journey as a Quantum Health and Nutrition Coach! I am offering support with nutrition counseling, movement and lifestyle support, and meditation techniques. I will be adding my new skills as I acquire them, so watch out for my updates.
