I have been in the fitness industry for the last 10 years. I started as a dance instructor for children and now have over 10 certifications, pre/post natal specialist and have developed over 10 fitness series. I have Co-written the Skinny Confidential’s Bikini guide, the #1 audio based app Aaptivs pre/postnatal program, and am currently working on the development of a postnatal DVD series for Germany.
I have been releasing online content since 2013 and have worked with the best of the industry: Jillian Michaels, Jeanette Jenkins, Kenta Seki to name a few. I have been featured in shape magazine multiple time, written for articles in fabletics, the greatist and more.
Currently, I am loving working with the corporate world in Silicon Valley – my hometown. Between teaching corporate classes, filming content for the web, personal training and program development – my hands are submerged in helping others live healthier. I am fortunate enough that I am able to bring my daughter to work with me 99.9% of the time and she is even featured in some of the mommy and me series videos.
I don’t come from a sporty family, actually quite the opposite. Believe it or not I’m Greek and my family is amazing at 2 things: food and fun. Fitness never fit into the Greek culture for us (unless it was dancing in a circle together at parties on the weekends).
I lost my father very young due to an unhealthy lifestyle and as awful as it was – it sparked the fire under me to be healthy! I have a mission on this earth and it is to inspire others to live healthier lives – I am not perfect – I love wine – I have cellulite and cheese is probably my favorite food. However, I have created a REALISTIC approach to eating better, working out more and enjoying precious time with loved ones.
