Meet Valeria

Valeria is a Health / Fitness Expert and Founder of The Well Nest. Valeria is a qualified Personal Trainer, Certified Health Coach and blogger on all things health, nutrition and fitness.

I founded The Well Nest when I started my journey to health back in 2011. Tired of all the misinformation out there, I started to study, research and share what has worked for me.

The Well Nest is your space to find healthy recipes to nourish your body, discover creative ideas to inspire more joy and fun in your life, learn ways to live a more sustainable life, and compare notes on issues we all struggle with as women.

I am a firm believer in nourishing the body with fresh, seasonal and organic where possible produce. Born in Soviet Russia, and having grown up on mostly brown soviet staples like Broscht, Beef, Bread and Cabbage Rolls I am hooked on eating the rainbow and variety. 

I thrive on moving my body. I workout not to look a certain way but to be strong and resilient enough to handle anything life throws at me. 

I am also passionate about looking after our planet and supporting brands that do the right thing by all of us.

While we may be small, yet the impact we leave on this planet is enormous. The average Australian produces 1.5 tonnes of waste in a year. Much of this waste is actually generated in your home, and completely avoidable. It is my intention to help inspire you to waste less and make small, yet powerful changes that will help keep our planet beautiful for generations to come. 

I love hearing from you! If you have a great recipe to share, a health tip, a great person to profile or you just want to say hello please email me at
