Before becoming a Dateologist® I was a successful civil litigation attorney with a very active social life living in New York City. I casually dated a lot of men and I had a lot of fun being a single woman living and flirting in NYC. But everything changed for me in September 2001. My incredible New York City was viciously attacked and my father who is the kindest man I’ve ever known was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. I suddenly became overwhelmed with fear and my happy-go-lucky demeanor left me overnight.
What brought me back to myself was witnessing my parents come together as a team to fight this horrific disease. I’m convinced their healthy relationship is the reason my father was able to beat the horrific odds. My parents have always had an incredible marriage and watching them cope together reminded me how incredible it is to go through life with someone who deeply loves you. This ordeal made me realize that I deeply wanted the type of healthy relationship my parents have and I deeply wanted it for everyone else who wants it.
After A LOT of introspection, learning, and hard work, my efforts paid off! I met an amazing man named Sid who would later become my happy husband and I completed my life coaching training and then went on to complete a program for coaching singles. Since then I have had the privilege of helping countless single men and women flirt their way to a healthy relationship through my One-On-One Coaching Programs, Emergency Dating Help Sessions, Classes and Flirting Parties.
I hosted a dating advice television show called “Dating Help 911!®” and my dating and relationship expertise have been featured in various media outlets including “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” Fox & Friends First, CNN, HLN, WNBC, CBS NY, Good Day New York, Fox 5 News, Men’s Fitness Magazine, Shape Magazine, Redbook Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, Huffington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. I was voted one of the “Top 10 Best Women’s Dating Experts” by DatingAdvice.com and I recently released my brand new book, “Flirt for Fun & Meet the One: Dating Secrets From The Dateologist”.
I still live in exciting New York City (NYC) with my wonderful husband, two cute cats and charming Chihuahua. But I also spend A LOT of time in beautiful sunny Los Angeles (LA).
