I maintain an active voice on healthcare policy, practice and research that directly impacts individuals and families, employees and communities. However, given America’s unpredictable and rapidly changing healthcare system I am a die-hard advocate for patient and consumer engagement, accountability and empowerment.
I firmly believe that maintaining physical, mental and emotional fitness with adequate self-care is crucial for overall health and happiness, both personally and in the workplace. My personal mission is to engage and educate others, arming them with the knowledge, strategies and tools necessary for managing their personal health through strategic self-care.
Self-care is indeed the new healthcare. An intact self not only improves health outcomes, but it also bolsters productivity and professional growth.
As a thought leader and subject matter expert in prevention and self-care, I shape and drive advocacy initiatives that improve health outcomes. My insights have been published in over two dozen scholarly manuscripts and nearly 900 consumer articles across multiple media outlets.
Through high-touch, high-touch coaching, mentoring and educational services, I help people navigate through the maze of health gimmicks, fads, and mainstream quackery, equipping them with the tools they need to lead happier, healthier, more productive lives.
A public speaker with a non-traditional personal journey and ever-evolving career endeavors, I am regularly called on for keynotes, lectures, workshops and seminars in a variety of settings including colleges and universities, corporations, and professional organizations.
I’m not shy about voicing my opinions and perspectives on emerging health and wellness trends and I don’t hold back in addressing controversial issues, especially those surrounding healthcare policies and programs, and the interplay between diet, exercise and disease.
