Episode 7 – Romy Nelson Interview

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Romy Nelson is a nutritionist, media consultant and author, specializing in corporate consulting. She educates audiences on many health and wellness topics including nutrition, fitness, and the importance of balancing the body, mind and soul to achieve optimal health and wellness. Her book, Be Lean: How to Get the Body You Love and Love the Body You Have, was written to guide readers towards achieving peace with their bodies through positive affirmations, proper nutrition, and natural health.

A certified personal trainer, Romy performed in eight amateur fitness/bodybuilding competitions between 1996 and 2005. Before making a career change to take her message to adults, she served for almost a decade as a full-time health teacher and coach in the Phoenix-area. Romy realized to effectively impact the quality of children’s lives, it is essential to educate and motivate adults on how to implement healthy lifestyle choices.

Romy holds a Masters Degree in Education, as well as an AAS Degree in Dietetic Technology. She is a DTR (Dietetic Technician, Registered) and a member of the American and Arizona Dietetic Associations. Romy is the Arizona Dietetic Technician, Registered of the Year 2009, and adjunct nutrition faculty at two Arizona community colleges.

Episode 5 – Ann and Carrie’s 3-Day for the Cure

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

I attended a Wine Social and Benefit Concert on October 17, 2010, hosted by the amazingly generous Jen and Phil Rossi. All proceeds raised were in support of Carrie Turnbull and Ann Hudnall in their 2011 fundraising goals for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in Philadelphia.

At the end of the evening I was able to steal them away for an interview, which I am happy to share with you in this episode. This will be their fourth 3-Day, and I hope their dedication and excitement will encourage you to make a donate in support of their team.

To Donate:
Team Titty Titty Bang Bang – Philadelphia in 2011

Ann Hudnall’s Donation Page

Carrie Turnbull’s Donation Page

Susan G. Komen site is laden with information, a great resource to learn about breast health, early detection, support if diagnosed and for donations and participation.

Additional music is from live performances by Phil Rossi and the Awakening. Many thanks to the band for allowing me to use these recordings for this episode and for just being so damned awesome as musicians and humans.
