As the founder of Live Well and the Food Sanity program (also available in Spanish as Volviendo al cuerpo, en paz con la comida), Lina coaches women and companies to harness internal tools to experience a mindset shift in how they think about their bodies and well-being. Drawing on personal life events associated with bulimia and binge eating, Lina empowers individuals to live a life led by self-awareness and freedom of choice. Lina's teachings result from the mindset shift that began her recovery after two decades of failed therapy sessions, Prozac prescriptions, hypnosis, and even meeting a monk.
Previous to becoming a certified Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, Lina worked in international development, moving to some of the world’s most coveted cities, including Paris, New York, and Washington, DC. Lina has a JD and holds two MPAs (Master of Public Administration), from Sciences Po in Paris and Columbia University in New York. In line with her passion with real food and sustainability, Lina is a Board Member at Community Foodworks, a non-profit based in D.C. She's been featured on pineapple radio, Lunch Agenda, the Unbreakable You podcast, and A-Cup podcast.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
