One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I love boxing and MMA training! It is the therapist’s therapy… I find training to be so stress relieving and empowering. During my 45 minutes of training my busy mind and life get put on hold, I am in the zone and it’s “me” time.
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
It takes a village to raise a child. Every friend and family member that has kept me sane and loves my children. The list is way too long – which is a good thing, right?!
Favorite things to do with your kids?
We love to play sports, go to the park, and quiet evenings on the beach.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
Yes, I am the owner of Jersey Shore Wellness Studio in Oceanport. I’m a psychotherapist and personal trainer and decided to infuse the two disciplines to offer total wellness to others. I believe in the reciprocal relationship between the mind and body. Being a therapist for over 10 years and specifically working with adolescents and teens, I noticed that traditional talk therapy was not always the most effective way to reach and intervene with certain needs. I began using creative art approaches and my passion for fitness and boxing with my therapy clients and found it extremely effective. From there, the wellness studio was born.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
I thrive on relationships with others. I’m Italian American and I suppose it’s cultural but community is everything. I’ve lived in Monmouth County my entire life, my husband and I went to high school together, and never felt the need to venture out. Some people may view that as a limitation but I love having a history here. I enjoy having relationships with local businesses and that intimacy that goes along with it. It’s a pretty cool feeling to be shopping and have a stranger recognize my face through knowing my family. It’s comforting to me.
What is your favorite restaurant in Monmouth County?
What is your favorite activity to do with your children in Monmouth County?
THE BEACH! Believe it or not, 3 or 4 o’clock is the best time to go and enjoy the quiet. We feel like it’s our own private beach.
What are your Mom Goals?
Raise two children who are kind to others, family oriented and happy.
