I am a native of Paris (France) where I grew up around gourmet foods and wines.
As a French and European Table Tennis Champion, I quickly realized the importance of a healthy lifestyle for optimum performance. Years of competitions and coaching have taught me the importance of understanding human behaviors, mindset, and how to take the necessary steps to bring success. Since my teenage years, Buddhist Masters have influenced my life. I gladly share some of their most valuable teachings with those interested in pursuing inner peace and happiness. I continue to embrace and practice them everyday.
Over the years, I have gained knowledge from college studies, coaches, educational courses,
and business partners that met my interests in the sports, health, wellness, coaching and culinary industries.
I have designed and incremented numerous educational and business tools for companies that promote wellness and healthier lifestyle in the United States and abroad. I became a best-seller author with my own healthy cookbooks series. I have gladly contributed material to other diet and coaching books. I have helped many businesses to prosper and brought healthier products to the market. I have developed hundredth of nutritionally balanced recipes, gave healthy lifestyle lectures, and coached many individuals.
As time allows, I continue to create educational tools to promote wellness.
Over the years; coaching businesses, teams, and individuals have provided me much joy. I love inspiring others to embrace a healthier and more ompassionate lifestyle. I am grateful to all that have allowed me to be part of their lives to this day. Coaching and inspiring others make me happy. They are my heartfelt passion and life mission. I look forwards guiding more companies and people to reach their potentials, health and happiness.
