Edwige's Story

She is more than an expert in this field. She has walked her own path on this journey! So take her hand, and she will show you the way to a life filled with glorious Joie de vivre!

In her twenties, she left the glamorous hometown of Cannes on the French Riviera and arrived in New York City eager to explore the Big Apple. She felt enveloped by endless possibilities, yet restrained from pursuing them due to a voice inside her head - her grandmother's voice, which shouted "You Can't" every time she dared to dream.

6 months later and 30 pounds heavier, hypoglycemic, with skyrocketing cholesterol and a digestive system struggling under a diet of bagels and brownies, her doctor labeled her a "ticking time bomb!" She finally looked in the mirror and, in her own voice, she exclaimed, "I can't go on living like this!" She then embarked on a journey to transform "I Can't" into "I Can."

After traversing several continents and dedicating over 30 years to rigorous research and personal exploration, she has emerged not only as an expert in her field but as a testament to authentic living. As a seasoned wellness coach, she has harnessed her experiences to guide countless others towards holistic health and well-being. She radiates her truth, celebrates her unique essence, and passionately embraces life's infinite possibilities with an unwavering "Joie de Vivre." Having walked this transformative journey herself, she extends her hand, ready to guide others toward a life brimming with that same exuberant joy.
