You Are What You Digest

About

My Background

I come from a scientific background, having earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences from the  University of Sheffield and a Masters of Science in Nutrition and Human Dietetics from Autonomous University of Barcelona.

I worked as a lab technician at Cadbury, Inc; I also worked at Abbott Laboratories Pharmaceutical Company where I deepened my knowledge in autoimmune diseases. 

Building on my scientific approach to health and wellness, I then went on to study the world of Ayurveda. I moved to India and Nepal where I studied with some of the top Ayurvedic practitioners. I became certified as yoga teacher there, and furthered my studies in meditation, and mindfulness.

Upon completing my work there, I moved to the US to work at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine where I was assisting in building the curriculum for the integrative medicine fellowship.

I am certified as an Ayurvedic Health Educator by the California College of Ayurveda and an Ayurvedic Chef by Hale Pule in Hawaii.

From there onwards I started hosting  Ayurvedic theory and cooking workshops around the world (U.S.A, Spain, Norway, Jordan, and Italy).

I also worked as a retreat head chef and kitchen consultant for a few months at Nøsen Retreat Center owned by Alexander Medin in Norway where I cooked seasonally for up to 75 people, trained chefs to cook according to Ayurvedic principles, designed menus for their weekend retreats, changed their kitchen environment, and minimized food waste.

I travel frequently - moving around the world to deepen my knowledge by learning from top practitioners and to learn about and incorporate many cultural approaches to health and wellness.

I conduct most of my Ayurvedic counseling sessions online, and occasionally host in-person workshops, retreats, and counseling sessions depending on my availability and travel schedule.

By combining the centuries old teachings of Ayurveda with modern-day Western health philosophies, I aim to teach you the tools and techniques to become your own healer.
