LATINA WELLNESS COACH & HEALTHY LIVING ADVOCATE
Jovanka’s passion for healthy living comes from her own personal health struggles. Ten years ago her body was in chaos. She went from doctor to doctor and felt lost and hopeless because she felt no one was able to help her feel better. She suffered from endometriosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, ulcers and fibroids and believed she had no choice but to become her own health advocate. Learning from top educators in the field of detox, weight loss, nutrition and mind-body wellness, Jovanka is living proof that curing an unhealthy body naturally is possible.
Successful in helping people get healthy, lose weight and get in shape, Jovanka trademarked her detoxifying, anti-inflammatory and plant-based diet the ‘Wellness Smackdown’. This successful plan with big results involves getting rid of toxins, absolutely no snacking, three meals a day, drinking one gallon of water a day and eating between 10am-7pm. This is the diet that Jovanka implemented when she appeared as a contestant mentor on ABC’s 2016 weight-loss competition reality series My Diet Is Better Than Yours.
Described as “a one-woman jolt of motivation for a sexy, happy and healthy life”, Jovanka’s press includes Entertainment Tonight, Fox11 LA, People Magazine, New York Post, CBS Radio, National Public Radio, ZLiving, DailyMail.com, YahooHealth.com, HuffingtonPost.com andMindBodyGreen.com.
A natural in front of the cameras, Jovanka took her expertise to the stage and was invited to do a prestigious TEDx talk at Barnard College in New York. That proved to be one of the most exciting thirteen minutes of her career.
Jovanka is the author of two health and wellness books, Cleanse! The 3-Week Ultimate Detox Challenge and Cook! Easy Recipes For The Busy Wellness Warrior.
