work with a health coach

Once I threw in the towel on my junk food vegetarian ways, I took up healthy eating. I thought I had it all figured out based on what I read online. So I steamed, grilled and boiled the heck out of everything. And it tasted like nothing.

And no dessert. No dessert?  It was no fun.

Passionate about healthy living, I enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a Nutrition Coach and earn my nutrition degree online because I knew there had to be more to it than boring food and deprivation. It turns out there is!

Become a Nutrition Coach

health coaching servicesWhen I enrolled at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I knew one thing: I was finally exactly where I needed to be. Unfulfilled in my corporate job, I yearned to find my purpose in helping others and getting my nutrition certification was the clear next step on this journey. With my passion for wellness, healthy eating and exercise, a career as a health coach was the right fit.

I was knowledgeable about whole foods nutrition and healthy eating, but at IIN I deepened that knowledge in their Health Coach Training Program while having the opportunity to work on other areas of my life like self care and spirituality. I learned from some of the world’s leading wellness gurus like Andrew Weil, Joel Fuhrman, Geneen Roth, Neal Barnard, Barry Sears, John Douillard, Mark Hyman, Sally Fallon, Annemarie Colbin, Deepak Chopra and many more.

IIN changed my life and is the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself.
