"I am on a mission to help women incorporate healthy habits into their busy schedules. My style? I would say a combo of Jillian Michaels, giving you tough love and Oprah Winfrey, lovingly embracing your every move. Rather than dwelling on diet fads, calorie crunching, and restrictions, I encourage women to lead a happy, healthy life in a way that’s flexible, fun and free of denial!"
"Talent, it seems, is energy waiting to be released through an honest involvement in life. But so many of us check whether we have power with the main switch 'off'- the switch being risk, curiosity, passion, and love. I share my deep passion for music as a DJ, producer, composer and singer-songwriter, under my alias - Symonne."

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs
"My mission is to help ballet dancers dance more confidently, comfortably, and joyfully through custom-fit shoe solutions. I’ve been a dancer all of my life, and I love being able to serve the needs dancers (from top-level professional ballerinas, to beginning students) by helping them grow as artists and athletes."
