With numerous certifications in fitness, nutrition, movement, meditation, mindset, and her recent graduation from Chopra University as a Perfect Health Instructor, Dina continues to work with companies that believe each of us can make a positive difference in the world.
Her menu at locally owned Patio Café is loved by those who want deliciously satiating meals that are low in calories, and she works with Chef Hillori at Whole Foods Market each month to create amazing meals with only five whole food ingredients. She is also an expert contributor for Women’s Health Magazine, where she was selected as one of their Top 5 Trainers nationally and featured on their cover. She continues to work with Women’s Health Magazine as a woman creating change in our world.
Dina understands there are times in life when we cannot control anything except choosing what we eat, what we think, and to move as much as we can. This has been learned firsthand. In recognition of her courage, determination and generosity, Dina was the recipient of the first Spirit of Women award by Saint Agnes Hospital.
As a six-year-old, Dina was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis. By the age of 21, she weighed around 204 pounds. She has spinal stenosis and several genetic autoimmune diseases, she’s had multiple surgeries and has been hospitalized several times for months at a time, and only 8 weeks ago she had two artificial disks put in her cervical spine; just another bump in the road and one that will make her stronger than ever. She also experienced the death of her daughter after holding her for the longest two hours of her life.
Yet, at 44 she still feels better than she did at 21! As a businesswoman, wife and mother of four, Dina understands exactly how challenging it can be to lose weight, live healthily and prioritize one’s self. It is her personal experience combined with her continuing education that makes her the transformation guru. Since turning her life around more than two decades ago and shedding 90 pounds, Dina has worked with thousands of people, helping them to achieve overall wellness through exercise, balanced nutrition, mindset techniques, meditation, Z-health mobility, and fostering meaningful connections with others; the keys to enjoying a healthy lifestyle in the 21st Century.
