Nancie A. Vito, MPH, CHES
With a unique blend of science and spirituality, I continue to immerse myself in studying mindfulness, positive psychology (the study of happiness and well-being) and goal setting in order to help people realize their dreams and flourish. Furthermore, since 2009, I have also learned from top business mentors in the field and love to help brainstorm business and marketing plans to help people make money doing what they love. I have helped many people go from stuck to flourishing.
Earned a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Emory University in Atlanta, focusing on prevention & mental health. I also hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology with a concentration in Industrial / Organizational Psychology.
Currently working towards a second graduate degree (in Organizational Psychology) from the City University of New York (CUNY).
Have earned over 80 graduate level university credits
Completed some graduate level coursework at a local university in Integrative Health (which incorporates mind, body and spirit).
