“The body is a sacred garment. It’s your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with; and it should be treated with honor.” –Martha Graham
I received my certification to practice health counseling at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition/Columbia University (IIN), which is the only nutrition school integrating all the different dietary theories—combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts like the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index, the Zone and raw foods. I had the good fortune to be taught by leaders in the field of functional medicine including Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Mark Hyman, Deepak Chopra and Joshua Rosenthal.
I graduated in June 2008 and was admitted as a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. In June 2009, I graduated from IIN’s advanced Immersion Program after additional training and serving as a mentor to new students.
After 20 years as a performing arts executive in New York City, I founded Bravo! Wellness, LLC, a company dedicated to helping dynamic, busy professionals maximize their creativity and energy so they can achieve their highest potential. I incorporate the extensive training I received at IIN with the knowledge I gained from and observations of the dance world. I counsel clients on giving the best performance of their life in their chosen profession.
I am passionate about helping people be the best they can be. For more information about my background and why I became a holistic health counselor, please read the Interview with Jodi.
