Although trained in the field of clinical mental health and personalized fitness training, she defines herself primarily as an inspirational and philosophical guide eager to engage herself in the empowerment of individuals toward finding long-term solutions to their presenting symptoms. She specializes in evidence-based treatment therapies for adult women with eating disorders and incorporates fitness fusion into her sessions.

Early in her career she became involved as a fitness consultant for O2 Health Studio in Chennai, India, where she educated personal trainers on western fitness trends and wellness concepts.
