My name is Carina Leticia Klemetz (Tisha is my nickname, which I used for many years). I was born in Palma de Mallorca (Spain), with a Swedish father and an Argentinean mother. I developed into a polyglot: I speak Spanish, Swedish, English, German, Italian, and French (and read some Biblical Hebrew).
After growing up in Mallorca, I have lived in Madrid and in the States (Utah), aside from traveling widely. Since 2013 I’m established in Malmö (Sweden).
Due to the health problems I was born with, am greatly interested in alternative and complementary healing techniques, which I started learning at the age of 7. I am fascinated by the healing power of essential oils, something I started researching and experimenting with in early 2012.
I have always been thrilled about studying the effects of food upon health and as a child dreamed of becoming a “pastry doctor, who would heal with cakes” – deciding to become a health coach was the natural next step! Also because I am interested in so many things that sticking to one single profession feels boring to me.
With my multilingual background, it felt totally natural to start working as a translator and interpreter, something I have been doing for the past 15 years. I studied Linguistics and became ATA Certified in English into Spanish (ATA: American Translators Association), and a verified member of SFÖ – the Swedish Association of Professional Translators.
Right now I work both as a translator and as a health coach, and that feels like a great combination for me. I specialize in gluten intolerance since it’s an issue I overcame myself. Having walked the path, it feels natural for me to want to help others, since that is a passion of mine.
I also have a passion for writing, which coupled with “helping others” has led to a series of articles, videos, a CF-specific database (in Spanish) and specific Facebook groups.
I received my training as a health coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.

I have experience in public speaking and teaching in church contexts, as well as business and personal development workshops. On the more creative side, I had my own radio program “La Onda Encantada” in 2001, and have experience as an actress and singer in theater and radio. I have also participated in many volunteering activities, both online and in person.
