My story

Gena, Jan 4 2014_2I’m Gena (pronounced “Jenna”) and come from a family of fantastic Italian chefs.   After many frustrating and fruitless visits to doctors, I began researching nutrition when my first child experienced severe eczema which we ultimately healed through the GAPS diet and traditional nutrition.   As the whole family began changing our habits, amazing things happened- eczema cleared up, excess weight was lost, brain fog disappeared, energy was restored.  Since then, I’ve been a firm believer in the benefits of a traditional diet, and haven’t been able to stop researching!

I’m a Holistic Nutrition Consultant and the Boston chapter leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation.   I trained in traditional foods cooking with widely respected Chef Monica Corrado.  I work with clients to identify areas of improvement and find a diet that can last. One size certainly does not fit all, and I will help you find the right balance to meet both your nutrition and lifestyle needs.

Other Projects

In my real food journey, I have met some interesting people from all walks of life.  One of those is Johanna Keefe, with whom I have begun a fun project to document stories of healing and of growth through real food called Growing Success Stories.  For more information, click here.

What else?!

I hold a BA from UMASS Amherst and a MA from Universidad Torcuato di Tella, Argentina.  I’ve lived and traveled around most of Latin America and now live in Boston, MA with my husband and two children.  We travel and eat fantastic food as much as we can.
