Treva Brandon Scharf is a Beverly Hills based writer, fitness professional, and dating expert.
Treva started as an advertising copywriter at BBDO New York, and has since branched out into blogging, screenwriting, entertainment advertising, reality TV programming, and public speaking.
Her background in fitness spans over 30 years as a competitive athlete, AFAA certified group fitness instructor, and personal trainer. She currently runs her own private training business and continues to teach at various fitness clubs around Los Angeles.
After getting married for the first time at the age of 50, Treva started a whole new chapter of her life, creatively and otherwise. To document her journey, Treva created “The Late Blooming Bride,” a blog that imparts wit and wisdom about living single and finding love later in life.
As an established dating expert, Treva regularly shares her tips and insights on Huffington Post, MidlifeBoulevard, BetterAfter50, Older-DatingUK, CurvesConnect and Hollywood Progressive, among other online publications. Treva is also the fitness columnist at The L.A. Progressive, where she dispenses health and wellness advice for political junkies and fitness nuts alike.

When Treva isn’t creating content, consulting for companies, or ghost writing dating profiles for her friends, she’s volunteering as a Fulfillment Fund mentor and Special Olympics coach. Treva is passionate about politics, policy, and people of all ages and abilities.
Treva’s fitness philosophy and storytelling are both inspiring and aspiring, creative and collaborative. She uses themes of self-discovery and transformation in her writing, and practices tough love in training clients. Whatever the cause or project, Treva always works for the highest good.
