Thanks for stopping by StudioEats! I’m Jamie, a Health Coach living in New York City.
About Me: I worked full time in Finance up until September of 2012. After finally coming to terms with the fact that I was not completely fulfilled at my job, I said my goodbyes and quit. You can read about my Career Change Part 1 here. I finally had the courage to pursue a career in health and nutrition, an idea I had been toying with for years.
I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2010 with a degree as a Health Coach. While there, I studied every major dietary theory and learned not only about how our bodies work, but how every component of our lives influences our health. I can say that my experience at IIN really changed my life and my own view of my body and my health. I started Health Coaching on the side while still keeping up my job in Finance, and saw a lot of success with it. However, it wasn’t until this past year that I decided to pursue Health Coaching as a full time career. I focus on Intuitive Eating, a process that helped me heal my own relationship to my body and to food. In a nutshell, it is all about learning to listen to our own bodies for guidance, allowing ourselves to eat what we truly crave and what makes us feel good, and honoring signs of hunger and fullness. Please see more about this on my Health Coaching page here and sign up for an initial consultation at the bottom of that page if you’re interested in working with me.
I’ve had a long history with emotional eating, weight and body image issues, and I am dedicated to helping others free themselves of this burden and live a happier and healthier life.
While not working, I love hanging out with my siblings who both live in the city, doing just about anything with my friends, going to good restaurants, exploring Central Park, shopping, reading, traveling, creating concoctions in the kitchen, and doing anything outdoors.
About the Studio: I live in the madness that is NYC and have been here for about 3.5 years now. In June of 2011 I moved into my own place which, to me, feels plenty spacious, but to outsiders probably still looks like a shoebox. My kitchen currently has a somewhat broken oven, no toaster, and very very little counter space. However, I am not letting that stop me from pursuing my goal of cooking more and finally working up the courage to seek out recipes and create real meals.
I hope you enjoy this and please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
