MEET YOUR CORPORATE WELLNESS EXPERT
My Human Resource Management experience in New York City and Miami, has taught me the importance of employer and employee relationship. I learned that the employee is happier and more productive when he/she feels valued as an employee. Their productivity goes up, they are sick less and miss less days of work. The Corporate environment also taught me the importance of bringing healthy food to work. It helped me maintain my energy levels during the day, and that taking a lunch break to work out could make or break my day. The more I paid attention to my own well-being and health, the better I felt at work and my work productivity improved.
Now, as a Certified Personal Trainer, Health Coach and Corporate Wellness Expert, my mission is to make wellness an essential and important part of the workplace. With my support, employees have better energy levels, reduced stress levels, and learn how to take care of themselves during a busy work day resulting in fewer sick days and more productivity.
