Welcome to my website, House Calls for Wellness, a site that provides you with simple ideas to make your house a well home. A bit about me: I’ve built my career around bringing wellness into everyday life, especially for busy women juggling work, children, and their relationships. I obtained my undergraduate degree in art history at the University of Pennsylvania, and my medical degree from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. I trained at Columbia Presbyterian in New York City, worked at Columbia’s Center for Women’s Health, and at the Women’s Health Center at the Cleveland Clinic.
While at the Cleveland Clinic, I worked with Dr. Mike Roizen, the Cleveland Clinic’s Chief Wellness Officer, to create Lifestyle180. As the founding medical director of Lifestyle180, we built a groundbreaking lifestyle modification program to treat chronic diseases with nutrition, exercise and stress management. Our program treated over 400 patients in our first year.
A fortuitous move to Santa Monica, CA allowed me to shift my focus from seeing patients to writing, a transformation that has allowed me to reach a broader audience of women on the issues of health and wellness. I have been a medical advisor/columnist to Youbeauty.com, a writer for Livestrong.com, and a medical consultant. My first book is currently being pitched and I am at work on my second book. I welcome opportunities to speak and write about health and wellness for women.
