Debbie has a passion for everything she does in life! When I first met with Debbie, I couldn’t believe the energy level she had in our meeting. Her knowledge about Health Care was incredible, but also her willingness to learn about all aspects of Marketing, Networking, etc. truly showed me she’ll succeed in anything she takes on! I strongly recommend Debbie!
Debbie Polisky is a wonderful speaker and makes health topics fun and interesting. She is so knowledgeable and poised before a variety of audiences. With the cost of healthcare so expensive, our alternative is to be healthy. I am happy to recommend Debbie for business presentations and individual consultations
Debbie Polisky was the best boss I've ever had. She empowered her employees by allowing us to perform duties in the areas of our strengths, and built a very strong department. All of her employees are extremely loyal as Debbie earns their trust in her leadership. She is a pleasure to work with, and usually has the most positive attitude of anyone else in the room. If you choose to work with Debbie, I have no doubt she'll become a favorite colleague of yours as well!

“I enjoy educating others to stay healthy, whether in my role as adjunct faculty, nutritionist, wellness consultant or Zumba instructor,” says Debbie, “I’m also passionate about creating and implementing health programs which is why I created Your Hungry Heart.

MIND BODY LIVING

She has over twenty years of experience offering bilingual individual nutrition counseling and workshops in English and Spanish.

HOBBIES
