Let me help you get to know me...
I am passionate about living a healthy life and inspiring others to do this as well. Health Coaching is about learning to live with more peace, vitality, and confidence. It is about getting your life to work better because your body feels, looks, and works better. I love to help my clients find balance in their lives.
For over three decades my specialty was body therapy, Rolfing, movement education, and teaching yoga and body therapy. I taught and studied throughout the US, and trained extensively in India and Italy. I was born with a deep love of body-related practices. Rolfing and yoga are magical, transformational, and powerful disciplines.
In 1999 I stumbled into nutrition. This changed and perhaps saved my life. First, by changing how and what I ate, I overcame several challenging health conditions that I had been lugging around for quite a while. This included a lifetime struggle with being seriously addicted to carbs, and formerly, a life-threatening eating disorder. Being able to leave these issues completely in the past where they belong was the first step to my transitioning from body therapy and yoga to nutrition and health coaching.
Studying nutrition and coaching in depth opened a whole new world to me. I developed my expertise in health coaching because I wanted to help people in a more dramatic way to live successfully in their bodies compared to what I had been doing previously. My commitment is to serve others who need to get their bodies to support them at work, with their families, and to live freely, like what happened to me.
I enjoy a fun-filled healthy lifestyle with my husband, Mark Waldman, and our dogs, Dolly and Gus. You will find me kayaking, biking, hiking, skating, swimming, doing yoga or jumping on my trampoline every day. We make fabulous mostly vegetarian food and love to travel the world, often pursuing sporty adventures. Meditating daily is among my sacred practices. I must practice what I preach in order to be a reliable role model for others.
As a naturopathic doctor I am generally skeptical of so-called nutritional information and those purveying it. Rosie is different: her information is well researched, scientifically-based, and she eliminates the insanity surrounding the nutrition industry and presents accessible and clear information. Rosie makes the complicated world of nutrition easy to understand. Rosie is genuine and approachable, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend my patients to her.Dr. Jennifer Potter
