Veronica Tomor is a busy woman always on the go. At the time the book was written, she worked for the pharmaceutical industry and spent the last three years in the health outcomes division of a major company in the realm of diabetes. As fate would have it, she realized that although her role involved outcomes research, her own health was talking a toll through the stress, fast paced living and reduced time for healthy eating and exercising, being on the road up to 75% of the time, drove her to re-focus and prioritize her health by exercising amidst all obstacles and eating smart on the go, something she learns about every day.
As a healthcare professional she has worked in hospitals, health plans, the pharmaceutical industry and almost every aspect of delivery of healthcare. She has had the privilege of speaking to Congressmen and Senators in Capitol Hill regarding the Diabetes and Obesity epidemic in the U.S for three years in a row (2007-2009).
