You’d probably never guess Tina’s favorite vegetable (golden beets) or fruit (fresh figs). From her very first job making juices in a health food restaurant, nutrition has been a big part of her life. Being a vegetarian and involved with health and wellness, she has seen firsthand the tremendous health and energy benefits of following a plant-based lifestyle. Tina was thrilled to combine her passion for wellness with public service in working for Wellness Foundation. She finds it so validating to be with other people who quite obviously love what they do and who are working for the greater good. After receiving her degree in Environmental Studies, Tina went on to work for several nonprofits before joining Wellness Foundation’s team. She loves to be outdoors and is a trail leader for the East Hampton Trails Preservation Society. Tina is also a big fan of both dancing and reading—her favorite wellness books are: “Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith,”and “Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers,”both by Anne Lamott. This author has a great conversational style that helps you feel it’s possible to strive to have a higher purpose while going about your everyday life.
