It's time to begin your journey to health and lifelong well-being! Hello, my name is Irene, and I am your partner who will support, educate, guide, and cheer you on every step of the way. For your information, I'm a former Division 1 soccer player, and I received my undergraduate degree in business. I'm also an experienced Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor, National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach,    

Duke Certified Integrative Health & Wellness Coach,  and a Certified Nutritionist.  


My clinical background includes treating patients in an Integrative Behavioral Medicine Clinic where I was part of a multidisciplinary treatment team that helped treat and manage symptoms for chronic illnesses, as well as Duke University's Integrative Medicine Program where I received extensive knowledge of nutrition, mindfulness, and healthy lifestyle modalities. I'm passionate and dedicated to empowering clients to meet and even exceed their health and well-being goals.

Our Mission

VLASI is here to maximize health and vitality through the power of self-healing using scientifically proven Integrative Health techniques with a Whole-Person Health approach.


Accountability is the glue that ties commitment to results. With VLASI, you will be taking the first step towards achieving the control you desire and the results you deserve.


Using Integrative Health, VLASI will  guide you to recognize the impact of building mindful awareness of your  physical, mental, social, and spiritual well-being to start the process towards sustainable and positive change.


Here's what I know for sure...

Too many of us struggle way longer than needed and give up at the first sight of failure. This failure-loop leads to undue heartache and pain...

Lifestyle changes are a process that take time, require support, and an effective plan. Once you're ready to make a change, the challenge is committing and following through.


Let's brave it together. You Got This!
