Born in Oregon and raised in beautiful Southern California, I am a committed Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Wellness Coach with sound knowledge of nutritional programs and regulations. I have had specialized training in the functional evaluation of Lingual-Neuro testing and other therapeutic practices. Following in the footsteps of my father and mentor, Al Fusco, I show compassion and offer constructive input to each of my clients in helping them achieve, as well as maintain, a positive and healthy lifestyle. I have always been an over achiever and it shows in all of my work, as I have helped many who suffer from eating disorders, addictions, and other related illnesses. I am constantly working toward expanding my knowledge in health and wellness and I truly enjoy helping others by sharing what I have learned with them.
