Introduction: Passions/Hobbies I don’t know what it was but I always had a thing for helping people. I remember in kindergarten where we had to show up wearing a costume of what we wanted to do as a chosen profession when we grow up. I was dressed as a nurse, cap and all. I’m pretty sure that influence came from my parents. My dad, may he rest in peace, was a doctor and my mother a nurse. My father had his own clinic in the Philippines. From what I recall as a young child, my father helped out the patients even though they had no money to give him for payment. In return for his service they would would give him food, livestock, or just their gratitude. I saw that and realizing at a later age that he had so much passion for helping people. I wanted to be like that too. My parents are my heroes and they were the foundation that shaped me to become the person I am today. Throughout The Years I have always been an active child and a huge tomboy. When little girls wanted to be at home playing dolls, I was outside playing sports and climbing trees. I favored playing softball in my grade school years. In high school, I dabbled in track and field for a little bit but never stuck to it, partly because I was asthmatic as a child. I continue to struggle with it as an adult. My brother, sister and I used to play sports together often and when my brother started lifting weights I also started to take interest in it. I started lifting weights at 15 and really haven’t stopped since. Fitness remained a part of my life through college and later in life. When I went to college I made the decision not to be a nurse, or pursue any health profession for that matter. It might have been all the science classes I would have to take. Maybe it was visiting my mother at Cook County Hospital as a teenager, the smell of sickness has never left me to this day. I decided to find another way in making myself useful to society went to college for business marketing. After I graduated, I became a real estate agent and thought that would be a way I could help people achieve their dreams. I was an agent for a few years until I became pregnant with my daughter. My husband (Phil) and I decided that I would become a stay at home mom. Being a Mom As a mother, the most important thing is caring for the welfare of my children and providing them with the best nutrition, education, and parenting I can. The most important thing in my life is to be a good role model for my daughters. The decisions I make everyday are influenced by the needs and well-being of my children. However, even as much as I love being a mother, I wanted to do something for myself. I decided to go back to school and study early childhood education. I became an active participant in my oldest daughter’s school when she went to preschool. I noticed that many parents around me were active in their children’s education, many were also conscious about their children’s nutrition. It was also painfully apparent that some were more naïve about the impact that poor nutrition could have on themselves and their children. Our country has an alarmingly high rate of obesity for children. Some experts are calling it an epidemic. I decided that I wanted to combine what I learned from my background in early childhood education with my passion for fitness in order to promote healthy living in children. My goal is to leverage this knowledge/passion in order to change the habits of parents and children so we can have a better tomorrow. I am Certified Fitness Trainer, Nutritionist and Certified for Pre and Postnatal Fitness.

This is my first time ever working with a nutritionist and I was pretty nervous at first but thanks to Verena I'm glad I made the plunge and did it. She is always available to respond to any questions I have and is very professional. She will be honest about your eating habits but is very understanding on her approach to make you feel good throughout your journey. Verena will give you the tools and knowledge you need in order to be successful in setting up a healthier lifestyle balance.

She is awesome! I love how she tackles nutrition and working out at the same time. Her deep knowledge of nutrition is truly a 2 for 1 deal that anyone could say is a bargain. I love how she listens to everything I say and works with me to set me up for the highest possible rate of success. Couldn't be happier with her as a personal trainer!

Verena is amazing! I immediately had results my first week working with her. Throughout my time with her, I had some challenges where things weren’t going as planned or they weren’t as effective as when I first began and the way Verena just pivoted and was ready for me to try the next best thing was very reassuring. She’s very knowledgeable and understands that “one size doesn’t fit all.” Getting started was the hardest part for me but I did it and I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer. She has definitely helped me to start my fitness journey off the correct way and I’m very confident that I am heading down a path that will lead me to where I ultimately would like to be all thanks to her.

Nutritionist

The experience has been good and Verena and I had good conversations to understand expectations I had of her and expectations she had of me. She does contact me daily regarding meals and providing advise on what to eat and not to eat. I wish exercising together was offered with Verena versus doing on my own. Adding a update to my review and giving Verena 5 stars. Since the end of May I have lost 16 lbs which is more than I have ever lost. Verena recommended a fasting diet that I thought I would not be able to maintain, but I have been able to stick with it and also include moderate exercising. I feel great and look great. I believe my goal was to loose about 25 lbs and I should be there before the end of the year. Thanks for your assistance Verena.

Thank you. I appreciate it. Unfortunately, I can only do in-person training locally. I do have virtual sessions but it doesn't have the same impact when I'm with my clients.
