Born in a farm and experienced a dream childhood. No processed foods. No electronics. Lots of fresh air. A privilege.

She moved to Rio de Janeiro when she was 14 years old and became immersed in the city. Soon after, she started working successfully as a stockbroker. However, her intense work in the financial markets left her with little time for a healthy lifestyle. Eventually, Elianni quit her job and moved my family to the US to search for a better, healthier lifestyle.

Since then, Elianni has focused on studying functional health; she has become what we call a master; she lets her passion drive her- a love that was not about her health anymore. A passion for helping people improve their health issues, sleep, lifestyle, exercise performance, diet, and ultimately their own lives.
