A career as a “Holistic Health Entrepreneur” could mean a number of different things. Maybe it’s a role as a Health Coach or a cooking instructor, or maybe it’s someone who organizes events and conferences about health. 2010 Integrative Nutrition grad Robin Shirley does all of these things, and more.
Robin discovered the Health Coach Training Program at a tough time, just when she needed it the most, and has since successfully developed her personal business. She draws from her own experiences suffering from systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and chronic Lyme disease to guide those with similar health problems. She speaks to schools, sports teams and businesses and is currently planning a health conference for over 450 people! Read more about Robin’s story and what she’s up to now:
What were you doing before Integrative Nutrition?
I had decided to take a break from college and was living back at home. I was taking a break for two reasons: I was too sick to attend my classes and keep up my grades, and I was going down the wrong path in life, but didn't know it at that point. It just felt like I was going 100 miles per hour down the wrong highway. Everything was all wrong and I needed to take a break and figure things out. So, I was at home searching for something that I was passionate about that would bring me into a better life.
