Meet Our Team

Gemi became a passionate advocate of dynamic nutrition after her own life-changing experience. A single mother of two at the time, she was working and studying full time, while taking care of her cancer-stricken dying father. As a result of long lasting stress and exhaustion, her brain shut down so her body forgot how to function. It was at this time when she decided to study the effects of nutrition on the brain and human attachment to very specific behaviors.

Gemi graduated as Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, she learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories ranging from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and more. She trained with the world's top health and wellness experts such as Andrew Weil, Mark Hyman and David Wolf. She worked as a business director and health coach for a behavioral health facility in the Central Coast of California.

She earned her MBA at ESADE. Gemi worked around the world, mastering the wisdom of different cultures and backgrounds, creating her own blueprint specifically designed for people that wants to retake their own power of choice and get on track to solid and healthy lifestyle habits and routines. Her continuous education and experience have equipped her with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic approach to mind-brain nutrition and therapies, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on her expertise, she works with clients to help them address unhealthy behaviors by developing and re-enforcing new neuro-pathways to make everlasting lifestyle changes.
