Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
I am originally from Staten Island. Moved to Matawan 4.5 years ago.
Child(ren) and Age(s)?
One Son, Jack, he is 2.5
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I was not athletic growing up at all! I wish I were guided more in that direction as I love being active now. Running (especially a good set of stairs), hiking and yoga are my favorite forms of movement.
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
My husband is THE BEST partner on this crazy adventure we call parenthood.
Favorite things to do with your kids?
We love to spend most of our time outside, even during the frigid winter days. In the summer we have plenty of beach time.
Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
I started my business (Dish You Well) as a health coach with a “small” dream that I can help inspire other people to live a life full of wellness. There have been tweaks and changes as the years have gone by. It was not until the pandemic happened that I realized my passion is working with other Moms. The level of responsibility we have as parents is not for the faint of heart and I believe a major part of that responsibility is to take care of our own well-being, too! Our children learn from us, even when we think they are not paying attention, they are. As a Mom, I want my son to know the value of eating well, movement, and being connected to himself. The only way he will learn that is by seeing my husband and myself living it. I am here to help other Moms on their journey as well as educate them on the importance of eating/lifestyle for the little ones.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Living here has been the most beneficial, rewarding 4 years of my life in so many ways. I fell in love with yoga, followed my dream of being a health coach, had my son, found the most meaningful friendships, and spent more time than ever enjoying nature. It is a great place to live!
