Lina grew up in the Bronx and has spread her wings from Stonybrook, Long Island, where she got her bachelor degrees for biochemistry and theatre arts and her doctorate in dentistry, to settling down in the Hudson Valley. Her passion has always been helping community and educating people in wellness and health either through dentistry, volunteerism or fitness. She loves the camaraderie of the Hudson valley Raw Athletics community, the intense strength training, and ability to help others evolve on their journey to fitness. In her spare time, she loves to hike, garden, camp, and learn to play the ukulele. She is not a fan of snakes and sometimes deadlifts, but that is a fear she plans on conquering!
