We are truly blessed.  Andrew and I started our lives in Orange County in 2001 with our then beloved dog, Kato, with no friends and no roots.  We miss Kato and Jeannie until this day, but we are soon having our fourth Staffordshire Bull Terrier and I ask each of you to pray that our dream to become home owners becomes reality very soon because we need the yard (and the tax write off).  Thank you, Mr. Chris Jordan with Back Bay Funding, for being our guide during this loan process.

Thank you, Total MMA, for providing excellent adult and children’s BJJ classes to my husband, daughter and me and for all of your great cardio conditioning classes.  Professors Juliano Prado and Adriano Nasal are incredible owners of the school and they have a marvelous team of black belts who lead the school to greatness.


Thank you, Reign Training Center, UFC fighter/Coach Mark Munoz and especially to my coach, Mr. Danny Perez, for being wonderful, kind and supportive.  Your location is so close to my office and your smiles brighten my days.


Thank you, Mr. Milo Levell at Renaissance, for being the BEST hip hop teacher worldwide and for keeping it “gangsta” in Aliso Viejo.  God knows you bring the soul to AV.


It is a blessing to have a community of family, friends, teachers and colleagues who care for our wellbeing.  We love each of you and we are so appreciative that you are here to LIVE with us.  May each of you be blessed.  God is so good to our family.  Thank you to Fr. John Taylor at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Rancho Santa Margarita for being so loving to our family.  Angilynn had her Early Communion this year and we are so grateful that she is a part of a Christian community who extends their love to every person, no matter what race, religion or beliefs.  Angilynn is part of Girl Friendly Society that teaches love, compassion and friendship to every person in her life.  What a great place to be.

VEMMA NEXT for healthier CHILDREN; VEMMA for adults

December 6th, 2013




Your kids will LOVE VEMMA NEXT!

The finest and most complete children’s supplement, Vemma NEXT provides essential vitamins and nutrients for growing children ages 2-12.   Vemma NEXT includes the Vemma formula combined with vegetarian-sourced DHA, 14 fruit and vegetable extracts, the antioxidant quercetin and the B-complex vitamin choline, and is physician-blended specifically for children.
Anais, my 3-year old, and Angilynn, my 9-year old LOVE LOVE LOVE VEMMA NEXT!



Mom, I Don’t Feel Good…


These are the words every parent hates to hear, but if you’re like most, guarding your children’s health goes beyond just feeling well. You want your kids to have super-charged immune protection, critical brain development nutrients and specific ingredients designed for their growing bodies.

Children have specific needs when it comes to nutrition. And in the days of “on-the-go” fast food and sugary snacks at school, they don’t often get the proper nutritional foundation that will help carry them through their adolescent years.

Sure, they have endless energy now, but the nutrition they get today will set the stage for their sense of well-being down the road.

Vemma NEXT® is ideal for children ages 2 to 12. It includes a full ounce of the Vemma formula, along with an enhanced nutrient blend unique to children’s nutritional needs.

Add to that an amazing, kid-friendly creamy orange flavor with no preservatives, artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and you’ve got the makings of a “superjuice” for “super kids.”

Vemma NextVemma NEXT is ideal for children ages 2 to 12. It has a kid-friendly creamy orange flavor with no preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

Vemma NEXT helps your child stay healthy, because it contains antioxidants and nutrients that help support the body’s immune system.* This includes:

  • Vitamin C – found in citrus fruits, broccoli, bell peppers, kale, cauliflower and green leafy vegetables.
  • Vitamin D – found in salmon, tuna fish, milk, eggs, liver, beef, and even direct sunlight.
  • Beta carotene – found in sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, collard greens and squash.


Join my team!  It’s easy to have your own VEMMA business.  Just ask me how.  You can reply or call me and I can call you at your convenience.  Join the thousands of people around the world making hundreds to thousands of dollars a week building a business that we believe in and love to promote.


Everything you want to know about VEMMA: natural supplements: best liquid anti-oxidant, vitamins, trace minerals; scientific research; comparisons with other antioxidants and energy drinks; and how much money people are really making are all on my website:

I drink Verve because I need the energy.  Acupuncture & Chinese herbs keep me healthy and strong.  VERVE keeps me going all day long!


This is the BEST and HEALTHIEST energy drink.


  • Protect and support a healthy heart*
  • Enhance immune response and support immune system*
  • Create abundant energy*
  • Fight against free radicals*
  • Promote good vision*
  • Support a normal, healthy intestinal tract*
  • Maintain healthy skin, eyes, teeth, gums and hair*

Vemma NEXT also includes new ingredients targeted specifically for children:

  • DHA – an all-natural, vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acid known for brain and eye support.* Choline also aids in brain development.*
  • Quercetin – a group of flavonoids that give many fruits and vegetables their coloring. An antioxidant perfect for growing bodies.*
  • Phytonutrient extracts of 14 organic fruits and veggies for those children who don’t get enough.

Unfortunately, many children have poor eating habits, often eating junk foods and even skipping meals. The result is a shortfall of balanced nutrition that growing bodies depend on for development.

Vemma NEXT can give you peace of mind knowing your child is getting an enhanced full spectrum of vitamins, antioxidants and over 65 plant-sourced minerals.

In fact, Vemma NEXT was created primarily to address this growing nutritional problem, based on the following emerging research:

  • A recent study by the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicineshowed that 20% of 4 year olds are obese. In addition, a considerable number of children drastically under-consume vitamin C, fruits and vegetables.
  • The Kaiser Family Foundation found that more than a third of children and teen ads featured candy and snacks.
  • According to a recent Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicinearticle, 40% of infants and toddlers had vitamin D levels below those optimal for bone health.
  • By the age of 3, a child’s brain is twice as active as an adult’s (North Dakota State University).

Product excellence, from concept to consumption, is what makes Vemma an industry leader specializing in premium liquid nutrition. By combining the extensive knowledge of Chief Scientific Officer, Yibing Wang, M.D., Ph.D., with his Eastern (cardiology) and Western (genetic obesity) wellness expertise, and the best experts in nutrition, weight management and fitness, we guarantee results-driven products that are true to what’s listed on the label and a brand you can trust to enhance overall health.*
