I started PALETA in 2005 in the heart of my own kitchen shortly after graduating with honors from the Le Cordon Bleu culinary arts program.  After putting on a few unwanted pounds with all the classical French cuisine, I decided I wanted to apply those cooking techniques to create more healthful fare...just for myself.  Friends started asking what I was doing, then asked me to cook for them, then referred me to their friends, relatives, physicians, personal trainers...and so on.  My passion project became my life's calling.  Before PALETA, I graduated with honors from Northwestern University's masters program in Business and Organizational Development. I then became a Human Resources executive at a few large companies, but focused almost exclusively on the entrepreneurial aspects of each of those businesses.  For instance, I was at The Disney Stores, Inc. while they were opening stores all over the world. At Capitol Records, we launched a new licensing division at the label and we had to build that from scratch.  I also headed up the HR function at start-up GeoCities, took the company through an IPO, and assisted in our ultimate purchase by Yahoo!.  I've always loved building things.

Even before my corporate life, I experienced a life-changing event when I was diagnosed with a rare advanced form of terminal ovarian cancer at the age of 21 right after graduating from college.  With the love and support of my family and friends, WE beat it and it changed the course of my life forever.  I learned to focus more on my body and mind and overall health and really enjoyed the every day experience of total body fitness.  I always liked being in HR because I felt that I was making a difference in people's lives.  We all spend so much time at our jobs that it was very satisfying working to improve the overall conditions and experience of whatever work environment I was in.  Eventually I just wanted a different outlet for this energy and it translated perfectly well to PALETA, because every day I spend most of my efforts doing the best I can for our PALETA clients.  If they are not experiencing improved health and well-being from our many services, then we are not doing our job.  My amazing team also echoes that the most rewarding thing about working for PALETA is that they make people's lives better.  That is inspiring for me to hear.
