*** NEW YEAR, NEW YOU RETREAT- San Luis Obispo, CA- December 30th, 2014 to January 2nd, 2015

Join me and celebrity yoga instructor Elise Joan in kicking off 2015 in the best way possible!  A yoga and goal-crushing getaway on the central California coast.  Farm to table food, fresh mineral springs, hiking, beaches, yoga for all levels, goal-setting, action plans, and an incredible network of passionate individuals.  Space is incredibly limited and the retreat is filling up fast!  Head on over to The Travel Yogi for more info or email me directly.  Let’s start 2015 with an open mind instead of an open bar!



Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my site. I am a “plus-size” model, nutrition and wellness personality, life and fulfillment coach, and the Founder of Model Meals, a healthy meal delivery service in NYC.

With a passion for clean eating and personal growth, I seek to inspire others to make the necessary lifestyle changes that can move them closer towards being their best self ever. I believe that at the core of living a fulfilled happy life, is taking the best care of your body as possible.  Eating clean unprocessed real foods without deprivation, keeping your body and mind active and constantly improving, and understanding the importance of proper rest and relaxation.  When we can find a healthy, trusting relationship with food, our mind, and our bodies, all of the other pieces can easily fall into place.

I have spent over a decade suffering with various eating disorders, compulsive overeating, food addiction, and struggling with my body image. Through my own personal journey, I have come to understand that lasting weight loss and vibrant health is not just about WHAT you eat, but in HOW and WHY you use food in the way that you do.  My goal is to bring the WHAT and the WHY together to give relief to those like myself who have searched high and low for resources and support, but have been left feeling alone or misunderstood. My journey is nowhere near over, but my hope is that sharing my struggles and successes can be beneficial to you and to those you love.

I live in New York City with my 220lb English Mastiff, Kingsley.  I enjoy cooking, yoga, reading, journaling, meditation, sharing with others, and connecting with anyone and everyone.  Through my writing, photos, and videos, I am out to help transform this world into a society of happy, healthy, and thriving people that are living their passions and dreams every single day.


With total appreciation and love,




For modeling, I am signed with Natural Models LA in Los Angeles, Wilhelmina Models in New York, and Brigitte Models in Germany.  I am open to representation in other media realms.
