As a child, I grew up in a traditional Greek household-lots of noise, stories, food, music, family and friends, and faith.
My family owned a Greek restaurant and I worked there after school each day…picture Nia Vardahlos in My Big Fat Greek Wedding…it was exactly the same except for the uni-brow and my going to college.
After college, I went to Greece and studied the Greek language and teachings of Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Hippocrates. In Greece, the Kefi spirit that had taken hold of me as a child, was ignited but as yet I did not know the path it would lead me down.
Being a lifelong learner, I wanted to know more about how to live vivaciously and organically. I enrolled in the school of Integrative Nutrition and recently graduated with certification as a Holistic Health Coach.
I love everything about the Greek lifestyle and how it enlivens my spirit. During my 2 decades on the radio as an on-air personality, I brought the Kefi spirit to the airwaves. My listeners, family and friends in the community all asked me how did I maintain my positivity in all situations.
The last five years I have been researching and building my brand, KefiL!fe, as a way to show you how I do it.
Kefi L!fe is a lifestyle rooted in the Greek ethos of creating harmony between mind, body and soul to achieve a life of Ola Kala (All is Well).
Kefi, the spirit of joy, passion and awe infuses the soul while the tenets of wellness nourish the mind and body. The recipes, stories, workshops, interviews, discussions and products will lean upon the knowledge and wisdom I learned at the table of my Greek ancestors, in the classrooms where I debated Greek philosophy and from the leading doctors specializing in Integrative Medicine.
Creating a life of Ola Kala starts here.
I look forward to sharing it with you.
NA EISA KALA (May You Be Well)
