Leidy Vassell is a program coordinator for Brighter Bites. She received a Bachelors of Science from Mercy College in New York. Leidy has thirteen years of experience in education and is very passionate about helping the community. Her passion for health and wellness grew as a result of her pregnancy with her second child. She was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and it drove her to start learning about healthy eating and exercise.
Leidy and her family recently moved from New York City to beautiful Southwest Florida to live a healthier life in a more rural area. She is passionate about healthy eating and adventurous travel. She is looking forward to doing many outdoor activities with her family in Southwest Florida and making an impact in the lives of those around her.
