I am a 30-something Manhattanite loving life in NYC. I have a passion for running, teaching, and living a healthy lifestyle. I am a staff developer for the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, as well as a pilates instructor at Power Pilates in Midtown East, Manhattan. Prior to working as a staff developer I was a second grade teacher at an elementary school on the UWS. My passion for living a healthy lifestyle led me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I received my certification as a Board Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Counselor through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). I strive to help others feel their personal best by teaching them about the impact that food has on their body. I run with Central Park Track Club, focusing mostly on 5ks-marathons. You can catch me running in the early morning hours in Central Park or in the evenings at practice with my teammates.
