About

I have always sought out truth, even as a child. My reason for being is to improve the lives of others. When I lost two brothers in their forties (one to cancer, the other to heart disease) I knew I had to do all I could to keep others from the same tragedy. When I was little I wanted to be a doctor; yet when it was time to start college I did not agree with the medical model of medicating symptoms and managing disease as it progressed. I also disagreed with what was being taught in nutrition programs. The physical therapy program caught my attention as I have always been fascinated with the workings of the human body.

Fast forward to the first ever Nutrition Educator Program designed to teach people how to eliminate the need for medications and restore health. I am now living my dream as a manually skilled physical therapist, certified applied functional science professional, trained MELT instructor, and nutrition educator graduate. I empower others to make informed decisions in order to achieve pain-free living and optimal health.

The Center for LifeLong WellBeing is focused on helping you to achieve your goals in a timely manner. If you have been frustrated at the amount of conflicting information out there regarding your pain and/or health issues; my goal is to clarify proven facts and science-based evidence that will lead you to a pain-free and healthier state. I turned 61 in 2019. I take no medications, not even over the counter, and I have enough energy to accomplish all of my goals. How I do this is what I will teach to you.  There are many passionate and knowledgeable medical professionals teaching people how to regain their health by providing information that is very effective. You do not have to suffer with pain, chronic conditions, or weight issues.

Look at the services offered to see how I can meet your needs and give me a call (or email) to get started. You can attend any of my live classes at Hudson Valley Community College or check out the virtual classes to learn from the comfort of your own home. Video consultations are offered so distance is not a hindrance to being helped. I have worked successfully with people all over the world: America, Ireland, Israel, Canada, UK, Australia, Austria, etc.
