Thanks for dropping in.
Hi there. I am Olga
As a Certified Integrative & Functional Nutrition Coach, I help people transform their health goals into action to feel and look their best, especially during key transition times in their lives.
A new or lost job, weight gain, turning 40, wanting to run the marathon, motherhood and going through menopause are examples of defining moments in people’s journeys when making smart nutrition and wellness choices go a long way.
I am diet agnostic and an advocate for real foods. I also believe information alone doesn’t create transformation. The right information and assessment combined with understanding, accountability, and action is what I strive for.
My philosophy is about living healthy without deprivation and being your best self. That will allow you to create the lifestyle you want and be successful at what’s most important to you.
Hormonal imbalance is an area I pay special attention to as it is the source of many conditions among women. My own struggles going through early menopause is the reason why I got certified by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and Functional Nutrition Lab (FNL) and started my coaching practice, Zesty Glow.
On a more personal note, I was born and raised in Spain, and a big passion of mine is traveling – 54 countries so far but who is counting?!
For the past 20 years, I’ve lived in big urban cities across Europe and the US and worked in the corporate consulting and media world. I’ve called NY home for 11 years now. If you live here or in a similar urban environment, you understand work/life/travel balance can be challenging.
I am here to help. Would love to hear from you.
My story: Is it me or is it really hot in here?
In my late thirties, I started having symptoms that much later I understood were the first signs of an important transition in my life, early menopause.
Like some of you reading this now, I was a total mess. Constantly bloated like a balloon, a rollercoaster of emotions, hot and cold, and every day becoming a huge undertaking, I felt lost, frustrated and disconnected from my body. My work and personal life started getting affected. I didn’t know what to expect next or who to reach out to in order to find a solution.
Wanting to avoid band-aid solutions such as meds that would have fixed my symptoms but not the root of the problem, I started doing my own research and trying more natural healing approaches – acupuncture, Chinese herbs, naturopathy, you name it. Each helped in one way or another but not enough to end the journey towards a healthy me.
Through working with a very good friend of mine who happens to be an amazing health coach, I made important changes in my diet and fitness habits that put my health back on track. Little did I know that this hormonal bump on the road would be a wake-up call to take me on a journey of health discovery and inspire me to help other women do the same. Soon after that, I got certified by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and I started my practice, Zesty Glow.
Our bodies are constantly evolving and what works one day may not work the next. That’s ok. What is important is to know when and how to adjust and make informed decisions that work for you, not only because you have the right information, but also because you learn how to manifest transformation.
I was lucky my health coach friend mentored me to create change, and I would be proud to do the same with you.
