Emily (Iannello) Tiberio grew up south of Buffalo, NY and moved to Beaver, PA with her family in 2015. She left behind over a decade of experience as an Electrical Engineer at a nuclear power plant in 2012. At the Rochester Institute of Technology in central NY, Emily played intercollegiate NCAA Division III sports - one season of women’s soccer and four seasons of women’s lacrosse, serving as the lacrosse team’s captain for two seasons. Throughout high school, Emily played soccer, ran track and played lacrosse but there was always an underlying passion for ice hockey…so she learned to ice skate after college and started playing in both women’s and men’s hockey leagues from 2006 through 2013. She coached youth soccer throughout high school and college in her hometown of West Seneca, NY. She coached youth lacrosse for a recreational league for several years and then became the head coach of the Junior Varsity Girl’s Lacrosse team for five seasons in Webster, NY until 2013.
Emily is married to her favorite hockey player and they have two children. She got a chance at a second career after baby #2 was born and has been working in the health and fitness industry since 2014. Emily now owns her own business Your Wellness Puzzle, LLC where she dedicates her non-family time to helping her clients find the missing pieces of their wellness puzzle with a focus on managing lifestyle changes associated with nutrition, activity, mindset and support. Emily is the author and creator of a nutrition guidebook "Eat Right for Life" which is designed to educate virtual and in-person clients on eating simply and balanced for life while establishing a healthy relationship with food and adopting an active lifestyle. Working in a high-stress job for so long taught Emily that balance in health and life is extremely delicate. She was diagnosed with Type One (Insulin Dependent) Diabetes in March 2008, and after 10 years living and thriving despite her disease she is able to continue to run marathons, teach P90X LIVE and show people that anything is possible with the right amount of dedication and perseverance.
