When did Our OM2 hands first begin?
Initially started as a partnership business teaching yoga classes and offering reflexology and holistic massage bodywork treatments in Courtenay, BC from 2014 to 2016.
How has your Greek roots and mediterranean heritage shaped your ideas about food, health and wellness?
Growing up in Greek family, in Canada: food was always at the center of life. How we and where we shopped, prepared, and cooked together; was a matter of living our lives together to its fullest capacity. I think my upbringing reminded me of how cultures have progressed with their roots intact because it is sustainable, and food can and should be a celebration of life, connection and ultimate joy.

Who do you look up to in the holistic nutrition world, and why?
Looking at deep healing from the root cause. AW has lead the way for much longer than the last 10 years since he has launched his books and has made headway in the mainstream as the “celery juice guy”. I have found deep healing by applying a lot of this wisdom via diet particular with my hypothyroidism that is now healed and balanced. I look up to some of the work of Anthony Williams, Dr. Axe, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Terry Wahls, Julie Daniluk, Dr. Edward Groupe, Dr. Brownstein. Some people that are in the supplement industry from smaller companies: Purica, Harmonic Arts: Yarrow and Angela Willard, Global Healing Center. Also Feel Best Naked: Brandi Black, TCM doctor: Dr.Adrienne Leung, and TCM doctor: Dr.Willow Walker (Vancouver Island).

How have your own health imbalanced influenced and shaped your approach as a holistic nutritionist and wellness coach?
Having been diagnosed from a young age as ADHD my mom took a holistic approach in that she never allowed me to have pop/soda, or junk food and nurtured my energy by telling me I am prolific and put me into things I loved: gymnastics, karate, skating, painting, singing, dancing, acting, and swimming. That approach helped shape me to look at the body/mind/spirit as an evolving source of what is means to be. as a teenager having experienced a miscarriage and having began a journey of very dark depression, using yoga and with diet especially including omega oils; my life was “saved” and began my interest with HOW diet can support health and healing. Also having seen my mom try Dr. Feingold diet with gluten and dairy free for my brother who became autistic by age 40 months and the impact it had on him to focus, sit still and learning: helped me to understand this deep relationship of the gut/brain dynamic particularly when I began embodying this on myself as well. It’s a longer story with the skin issues and hypothyroidism but ultimately healing approaches and herbs and integrative health: NDs, TCM doctor and my own intuitive approach along with working with an RHN friend and using a lot of spirits wisdom via Anthony Williams has helped me to understand the root cause and the whole approach to health and healing.
What does optimal health look like to you?
Optimal health is a process, and sometimes it is like riding a bike you get on and off, depending on what may be occuring in one’s life circumstance that can or cannot be controlled. Optimal health means: clear thinking (no brain fog), energy/vitality, sound full nights sleep, clear skin, strong gut health, and stamina.
