Not so long ago I found myself unhappy with my body and my life. By focusing almost exclusively About-Me-Beforeon my financial services career I sacrificed my health and gained 30 lbs in the course of a year. My energy left and took my confidence with it.

After seeing doctors and specialists, trying fad diets and extreme exercise programs with no lasting change, I decided to get to the root of my issues and find a way to heal myself. So I went back to school and over the next several years earned degrees and certifications in fitness and nutrition.

Once I understood the connections between food, exercise, and mental attitude I began to see a change not only in my weight but also in my outlook.

By making simple shifts in the way I thought about food and exercise I changed the way I felt about everything!  I say this phrase a lot because I find it truly empowering.

I was able to lose the 30 lbs within a few short months and knew that I could help others do the same.

I began my career as a personal trainer at the prestigious Personal Training Institute in New York City, and then honed my skills training CEOs and television personalities in a Manhattan gym.

In 1995 I brought my knowledge and experience to Los Angeles and opened Beach Physique Fitness and Nutrition.  I have trained hundreds of women and men in my Hermosa Beach studio and have recently extended my reach nation-wide with my on-line fitness and nutrition programs, The Beach Physique Method and The Beach Physique 20 Pound Challenge.


Change can be difficult and I wouldn’t have been able to make the shift that I did without the guidance and help from other professionals that had already gone through it themselves and worked with me along the way.
