Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How tall am I?

I am 5'4". I am just tall enough that I can get the 'regular' jean length!

What did you study in school?

In undergrad, I studied Business Administration & International Business. In business school, I obtained my Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a concentration in Human Resource Management. 

What do you do for a living?

I work in corporate human resources (HR) in the luxury fashion industry!

Where do you shop?

I primarily shop at affordable online boutiques! Find my favorite stores on my blog. I wrote a post titled My Sweat Files Simple Style or tagged on my Insta feed.

What do you do for exercise?

I loosely follow fitness programs and take fitness classes around NYC (SoulCycle, reformer pilates, yoga) but I

do whatever exercise makes my body feel good doing that day.

What is your diet like?

I eat gluten free, always. For the most part, just like anything along my wellness journey, I stick to the specific carb diet (SCD) and low residue for my Crohn's and Celiac. Otherwise, I try to eat balanced meals focusing on lean proteins, veggies (cooked, though I love salads), and healthy carbs (which I will never give up). I also am addicted to nut butters so there's that.

What is your favorite meal of the day?

I love food. I used to always say breakfast but now I'm thinking it's dinner. I live for pasta, pizza, cheese, wine time... or just wining and dining.

Do you follow a nutrition plan/program?

Theme: I loosely track what I eat because I have a big appetite always and want to ensure I'm not going too crazy, but otherwise I don't follow a plan. I do use portion control containers sometimes and track macros sometimes but it depends on my mood.

What is life like with Crohn's Disease?

It's quite the journey. Crohn's is unpredictable. I do my best to keep a positive mindset every day and to also listen to my body. I allow myself to rest and also try to always surround myself with people who make my heart explode. Life's too short as I've learned with my illness.
