SHe talks about her journey to the States for postgraduate training and why she left the corporate healthcare system to pursue her dream of opening a holistic practice.

As someone who struggled personally with weight issues (dropping 65 lbs, 35% of her starting body weight), she has the experience and professional expertise to empower the modern woman, struggling with weight, to break free of this stigmatizing disease and become the best version of herself through the power of Science, Behavior + Biology.
