I've been a food enthusiast since my earliest days. After completing a master’s degree in Food Studies and Food Systems from NYU, and culinary training from the Natural Gourmet Institute of Health and Culinary Arts, my professional culinary experience began as an intern at the world-renowned Golden Door Spa in Escondido, CA. I then continued my development in the kitchens of noted New York restaurants including Momofuku Ssam Bar, Prune, and Hearth.
While I love to eat, and I love to feed people, my real passion is to help others learn how to feed themselves.
Driven by the desire to bring my food + yoga worlds together, I regularly share a practice called, I Am Nourished. Recognizing that hunger comes in many forms and nourishment comes from many sources, I Am Nourished Workshops and Retreats combine the things I love most: yoga, mindfulness, self-reflection, sharing, and yes! FOOD. The result is a body-and-soul-satisfying blend of ingredients that feed all of our forms of hunger: physical, emotional, social, and spiritual.
