Welcome to The Wellness Scoop!

What is "Vitevity"?

Pronounced vy-TEV-itee, I came up with this blended word back in 2004 when I was first launching The Wellness Scoop. It means vitality and longevity. In my own journey towards optimal health, as well as through my observations of others who struggle with health issues on a regular basis, I have come to realize that one is of no use without the other. Too many people are living too many years beyond what their bodies and minds are able to handle. And much too often, others have their lives cut short by the seemingly sudden onset of a cardiac event or fatal disease.

Knowing that most of today’s health conditions and diseases are degenerative and take many decades to silently develop, I believe it is possible for everyone to attain vitevity, by leading a healthy and holistic lifestyle. But in today’s world of information overload, the trick is figuring out just what that means. It can be challenging to sift through the plethora of articles, studies, and other information available on this vast topic. Believe me I know! I’ve been there, and I am still there…. constantly reading, researching, studying, learning. Let me save you a lot of time and energy, and help you make sense of it all.


Here at The Wellness Scoop, I can help you take “baby steps” towards vitevity. My mission is to lead you on a path towards physical, mental and spiritual health… towards “whole” health. The main service I provide is education and knowledge, with the belief that if we continually seek knowledge, then we continually grow in our bodies, minds and spirits. I view learning as the ultimate source of self-discovery, inspiration and motivation.

In the words of the Dalai Lama…
"No matter what activity or practice we are pursuing, there isn't anything that isn't made easier through constant familiarity and training. Through training, we can change; we can transform ourselves."

So browse through these pages, and look for your own personal inspiration and motivation. Maybe try a Pilates class, check out my blog for the latest research on nutritional supplements, sign up for one of our Healthy Weight Loss classes to learn what a truly healthy diet is, or get a referral for a great yoga teacher, acupuncturist, or holistic dentist or other welness professional, or contact me with your wellness questions. What would you like to learn today?

To your health & vitevity, with love,



To create a nurturing physical and virtual space that is both peaceful and energizing, where people can come to learn about themselves, about holistic health and how to achieve vitality and longevity, so they can focus on their goals and dreams, unencumbered.
