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.

Annemarie Bombardieri

Annemarie’s two passions in life are communication and revealing the beauty within others. In 2008, she earned her cosmetology license in New Jersey. Recently, she graduated from University of North Carolina, Charlotte with a B.A. in communication and a specialization in PR. There, she especially enjoyed studying sociology, analyzing social interaction and discovering diverse interpretations of life’s meaning.

In the summer of 2013, Annemarie joined the BBMS team as a communication intern and continues as a consultant.

“I expected to grow professionally,” says Annemarie, “but was pleasantly surprised to find how working with Michele also advanced my ability to enjoy life’s journey.”

Continuing the BBMS tradition, Michele and Annemarie enjoy exploring effective strategies for conscious living, emotional intelligence, fitness and nutrition.
