Telma navigated the world of health and wellness from different perspectives. Starting her career as a clinical dietitian, she worked in preventative nutrition as well with people who suffered a variety of chronic diseases and critically ill patients.
Counseling people with obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and several types of cancer during 20 years, Telma developed her passion for wellness and prevention. Many of these conditions could have been prevented by lifestyle changes.
Telma is committed to support her clients to adopt a healthy lifestyle or to better manage existing conditions through behavior change. She is convinced that every person has the power to change, provided they realize that they are able to do it and can make personal decisions about their own health. With that in mind, she assists her clients to make the behavioral changes that will take them to the healthy lifestyle they choose for themselves.
Telma combines her solid nutrition expertise with health and wellness coaching to assist her clients make sustained health changes.

She is a Certified Health and Wellness Coach from Wellcoaches, school of coaching endorsed by the American College of Sports Medicine, and a registered dietitian in her home country, Argentina.
