Certified Holistic Health and Wellness Coach and Lifestylist, specializing in Neuro-Nutrition and Mindful Eating. CEO of Roberta M. Developed and implemented the “It’s My Turn” Program, through the Roberta M platform, working with women transitioning through menopause, struggling with health and wellness needs, and personal social issues common during this time of their lives.

Transitioning through menopause is a confusing time for most women. They are faced with many changes and challenges as well as dealing with unfamiliar health issues. They are confronted by the typical menopause symptoms, unsure of how to handle them. Additionally, the seeds of inflammatory disease are often planted during the perimenopausal years. A key factor in these symptoms and diseases is consuming the wrong foods in the wrong manner. These issues are most evident in women as they transition through menopause, Roberta’s clientele. She provides her clients with the proper tools, education, and support to incorporate those dietary techniques to manage common menopause symptoms as well as control, abate, and, perhaps, stop those inflammatory diseases in their tracks, prevent them from spiraling out of control.

Roberta also addresses those lifestyle factors that contribute to their dis-ease, including personal achievement and contribution, stress, social issues, and physical activity. Considering the bio-individuality of each person, Roberta and her client will develop a blueprint of recommendations and suggestions specific to her client’s needs.

Memorable Quotes:
