Alina is an award-winning, Board-Certified Health Coach, Certified Chopra Life Coach, Speaker, Detox Specialist, Chef  and Creator of the #1 Best Diet in America, as selected by Harper's Bazaar Magazine.

She is confident in herself and freely eats lots of butter on her toast and enjoys ice cream without any guilt.

But it wasn't always like this.


As VP of Marketing for one of Washington DC's largest catering companies, Alina's entire days were wrapped around talking about, writing about and tasting food! From early morning networking breakfasts to late-night cocktail receptions and galas, Alina barely had time to eat healthy. This busy lifestyle lead to an unwanted extra 20 pounds, which she struggled to lose with traditional diets and an endless supply of dieting books.


As a last resort, she enrolled to study nutrition at the world's largest nutrition school -- Institute For Integrative Nutrition, in New York City. The experience was truly life-changing -  she found a unique way to health and fell in love with the field of nutrition. The one thing she saw missing most in the health market was FUN!


Alina noticed two crucial things: first, food is typically labeled as either healthy or delicious and second, there is a total lack of connection being made between nutrition and the key to a happy life.


With a passion for making the connection, Alina's mission as nutrition and life coach is to help you pursue your life passions and discover that food can be healthy, delicious, on budget, quick and easy! 

"Let's improve your life by making small, easy, yet powerful tweaks that make a big impact!"
