Intern Team

Gabriella Potievsky, Intern

Gabriella is a recent graduate from Rutgers University with a degree in Public Health and minor in Organizational Leadership. Gabriella’s passions have always included the science of public health and its intersection with the national food industry, a field she plans to achieve great success.

She has been a part of the BBMS team since January 2012 where she assists in coordinating marketing, special events and outreach to local media regarding the company’s new developments. Her working experience with Michele has helped her see the power of alternative methods to conventional medicine and the importance of mental and spiritual well being.

Gabriella is constantly learning on the job, acquiring knowledge about cost effective holistic approaches to leading a healthy lifestyle, while feeding her constant fascination with the health care system. This internship is a great stepping stone for being a change agent of our broken health care system.

Lauren Searles, Intern

Lauren is a senior at Syracuse University, pursuing Public Health and Spanish. She grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts and has been interning at Beyond Body Mind Spirit (BBMS) since May of 2012.

Some of Lauren’s greatest volunteer accomplishments include years in Syracuse, and a trip to Lima, Peru. She plans to return to Peru to help them acquire basic health essentials. “Seeing the way a great majority of our world lives was a wake-up call for me and immediately inspired me to dedicate myself to helping others live healthier and pursue work in the Public Health field.”

“Living healthy just makes sense to me. I strive to inspire people to maintain a sensible diet, stay active, and think positive. I believe that we choose whether or not we live at our greatest potential.”

“I’m so excited to be a part of BBMS team. I know we will accomplish great things and impact the health of others – individual by individual and in the broad spectrum of healthcare.”
