About Our CEO
Rona Lewis is particularly knowledgeable for working in the corporate wellness (we prefer wellbeing) arena. Having been a “suit” herself, Rona understands the stress and unpredictability of corporate life and she truly knows how to work within these parameters to keep a healthy, balanced and playful lifestyle
Rona’s first career was in advertising sales, where her last position was as VP of Sales for a national media rep firm. She then changed careers and became a fitness and lifestyle coach for corporations, professional women and businessmen. Add to that, certifications as a creativity coach and her business built itself! Her background includes a degree in Advertising with a Minor in Phys. Ed. from Penn State University, along with certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and The American College of Sports Medicine.
As an expert, she’s been a guest on TV and radio shows from San Francisco to New York. Her articles have been featured in Corporate Wellness Magazine, Town and Country Magazine, New York’s Pierless Magazine and more.
Another added bonus is that Rona went to culinary school! (She really loves to cook.) Her healthy cookbook series, “Does This Cookbook Make Me Look Fat?” contains healthy recipes, entertaining tips, pertinent information on vitamins and minerals and most importantly, recipes that don’t take forever to prepare and cook!
