Hi, I'm Stefania 💦 Originally from the east coast, I made my way to Maui 10 years ago, must be the island roots in my blood. I’ve lived by the ocean ever since I could choose my dwelling place. It’s taught me humility, discipline and perseverance. When I came to Maui, I joined a local canoe club where I gained invaluable knowledge about Hawaiian history, culture and present-day struggles, that changed the way I view the world. It was straight from the canoe to the surfboard where my love of water became a soul connection. Learning to surf at the age of 25 is no easy feat. I had my work cut out for me. I surfed and surfed often and the more I delved into the surf culture, I realized it doesn’t promote longevity. Lots of waves, lots of beers and no talks about how we can surf into old age. I admire the aunty’s and uncle’s in their 70’s still out in the line-up. They earned that through a lifetime of diligently prioritizing all aspects of their health. So here I am, after taking time away from the board to unfreeze my shoulders, moisturize my skin and round out my passions, I got to thinking, how can I be surfing 'til I’m 70? The answers lie in our values, our daily routines and our social support. That’s where I come in, as a Kinesiologist from Longwood University, I always felt something was missing from my education. That something was behavior science. It wasn’t until I became an ACE Certified Health Coach that I was introduced to this fascinating science. I became so enthralled, I continued on to become an ACE Behavior Change Specialist (BCS). As a Health Coach specializing in surfing, it’s important to me to be as water competent as possible. Along with being a BCS, I’m an American Lifeguard Association Certified Lifeguard, which includes: ~ Globally ~ Waterfront ~ Deep water ~ Community first aid ~ Aquatic first responder ~ CPR/AED for the professional rescuer
