Before starting her company…
Stephanie holds a New York State Early Childhood Special and General Education Certification, having graduated from Brooklyn College on the 2011 Dean’s List. By the age of 26, with about 8 years teaching experience under her belt, and a burning passion to bring her coaching practice to life, she decided to leave the public school teaching field and went on to study at the world’s largest nutrition school, Institute for Integrative Nutrition. There she received her Integrative Nutritional Health Coaching Certification, got certified through the American Association for Drugless Practitioners (AADP), and immediately began coaching. Her education equipped her with extensive knowledge and methodology in holistic nutrition, including extensive dietary theory; highly effective health and life coaching techniques; practical lifestyle management techniques; and a strong focus on preventive lifestyle care.
As a life-long learner, committed to her ongoing personal and professional development, she has since successfully completed Level 1 & 2 Skills Training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a therapeutic methodology used in traditional psychotherapy which focuses on Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Relationship and Distress Tolerance; is currently enrolled in a comprehensive year long Advanced Coach Training Program with Coachville, learning greater innovative coaching technique which will accredit her as ICF (International Coach Federation) Certified; has gotten Level 1 & 2 Reiki Certified; and is in active pursuit of a Master’s Degree in Health Education and Psychology. Outside of running her exclusive full-time practice, she also works on the admin team at Fusion Academy in Woodbury NY, where she mentors teens in social, emotional well-being, and academic development.
