Thanks for checking out FitMamaEats! I aim to make my faith and my family a priority. But work comes in a close second. I’m passionate about wellness and healing and really blessed to get paid to be around the most inspiring people every day. As a nutritionist I show people how to eat well at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital's Nutrition Clinic. As an AFAA-certified group exercise and step instructor and certified Bootybarre instructor I show people how to move at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's Tanger Be Well Center and at Healthworks Fitness Centers, where I was an enthusiastic member for 10 years before teaching my own classes.
My greatest hope is to make a difference in people’s lives and motivate them to live strong and be healthy no matter what life's challenges are. My work isn’t all roses as I often connect with discouraged and very ill people and sometimes there is only so much help one can offer. But if I’ve convinced someone to take one positive step forward that forever changes their path, I’m satisfied.
I don't live to eat but I cook and eat to live vibrantly. FitMamaEats offers my two cents on Boston-area restaurants, new food products, easy healthful recipes, and general health trends. You may also see product and book reviews related to food and fitness or a write-up about a health-related business that I strongly believe in. Although I am provided with free products to sample, my reviews are honest. If I love it I'll rave about it; if I don't, you'll hear why. I can't respond personally to every product review request but if you are a company with a product that I feel is a good fit for my blog, I will contact you within one week of your request. I hope you find my blog helpful and interesting! Feel free to contact me anytime—would love to hear from you.
