Media + Speaking

Media inquiries please contact: inquiries@jovankaciares.com

I’ve got a newsflash for you:

Your body is not a run-down, sleazy motel.

Your body is 5-Star luxury hotel.

And no matter what you look + feel like today, you can change your habits, your thoughts and your life. (I’m living proof.)

My on-camera style? A little bit of sass, a lot of self-respect, and a talent for making weight loss + wellness feel fun, simple + sexy.

Think: Suze Orman with a green juicer + red-hot Puerto Rican dance moves.
