Kristina is a Clinical Pharmacist* and Certified Nutrition Specialist. After years of working in the medical field, she pursued post-graduate studies in nutrition with the goal of helping others live a balanced life and feel their best.
Her passion for health, fitness, and wellness began with her diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in her teen years, and later on becoming almost bedridden. Lying helplessly in bed with medications that weren’t working made her realize the importance of taking care of oneself. Her goals have changed over the years beginning with controlling her PCOS to later competing in a fitness bikini competition. With each goal, proper nutrition was essential. However, the hardest part was taking the first step.
Kristina understands how hard and frustrating it can be to get out of your comfort zone and do something new. She will be your cheerleader when you succeed and catch you when you fall. Her focus is less on strict dieting and more on promoting healthy lifestyle changes and enjoying what you eat. Each person is different and there is not one plan that fits all. Kristina creates an individualized approach for each client to improve their health, achieve their goals, and develop sustainable habits.
In her free time, Kristina can be found traveling, being a foodie, hand-modeling, and taking care of her two adorable bunnies.
