She attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® in New York City in 2005 and became a Certified Health Coach - www.happyhealthyweightloss.com. She is also an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and enjoys training others to help them reach their fitness goals. She is currently pursuing her Masters in Human Nutrition with plans to pursue her PhD. She writes a weekly blog filled with practical nutrition and wellness tips at: www.happyhealthypeople.com and she also sends out a free monthly newsletter. Justine loves to teach others about health, wellness and nutrition, and she enjoys helping others achieve their weight-loss goals. Prior to relocating to Austin, TX, she was the owner a women’s gym in New Jersey where she spread the message of health and wellness to the members. Justine has several books in the works. The first will be a book called “Lose Your Inches Without Losing Your Mind!”© Afterwards, she will come out with her children’s book series. “Lose Your Inches Without Losing Your Mind!”© is an honest and realistic approach to losing inches in a healthy, balanced way…. and keeping them off! She uses her past experience with diets (and losing 45 lbs!) to relate to others how to finally reach their ideal size. It is a fun and quick read – no dieting allowed in this book! Her children’s book series will teach the children (and their parents!) about making healthy choices in an easy and memorable way, especially when they are young and most impressionable. There are many instances of child obesity that she feels can be altered positively. Educating both children and their parents in a simple, easy-to-understand way is how she hopes to make a difference. She looks forward to continuing to educate as many people as possible through her books, articles, seminars and speaking engagements. Her ultimate goal is to help individuals of all ages, sizes, and walks of life be HAPPY, HEALTHY PEOPLE!
