I am ambitious, kind, inspired, and always looking for more. Inter-connectivity is key
My upbringing was shaped around my love for food. I loved to eat and prepare many tasty dishes, but while younger, that was mostly done in a unhealthy manner. Through my own self-written diet plan, I was able to shed 127lbs. in a little over a year when I was 18 years old. This experience and accomplishment changed me forever. I learned a greater connection between the mind and body with health and nourishment as focus.
At that point in my life I was 19 years old, and decided to move to Flanders in Belgium and begin to work towards a degree in their university system. I lived in Bruges for 1 year, and Ghent for 3 years.There I supported myself while working in a super market as a customer service specialist restaurants, working my way up from dishwasher, to dessert maker,prep cook work, to altering recipes to more pleasurable flavors. Also worked in the front of the restaurant to work on my multi-lingual and customer service talents.
Also while in Belgium I helped advise friends, colleagues, and other acquaintances by giving them both nutritional dietary advice and physical training advice to help promote healthier bodies, lifestyles, and mentalities. Most people I came in contact with were amazed by my story and weight loss and trusted me to share little bits of my own diet-plan/lifestyle to help them lose weight.
Early Spring 2015 I returned to the Bay Area. Here I manage The Olive Crush and have been working as a sales associate at Sole Desire.
I am continuously thinking and planning for great positive beneficial change. I am interested in furthering my talents of either the food industry, either cooking or selling, translating, giving diet and exercise advice
