As the healthcare system begins to shift towards preventive care, an increasing number of medical professionals are embracing a more holistic approach to nutrition and wellness. Lauri Boone, Class of 2013, is a registered dietitian who had already devoted her life’s work to helping people eat more healthily before she enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program. Seeking enrichment and inspiration, she enrolled and discovered there’s much more to complete wellness than simply eating the right foods.
Not only has Lauri expanded on her personal knowledge of holistic health; her career as a wellness professional has taken off. She recently released a new book about plant-based superfoods, with a second book in the works! Sometimes forgetting all the “rules” can lead to new discoveries when it comes to nutrition, and using a no-one-size-fits-all approach has empowered Lauri to improve her own health, as well as that of others.
What led you to explore the Health Coach Training Program?
I was a self-employed dietitian. A colleague, who is also a dietitian, had completed the program and spoke highly of it. I am always seeking out quality continuing education that will inspire me in my work, and I knew this program would offer just that. My initial intentions were to connect with positive and forward-thinking professionals, build my business skills (the Fast Track business-building component interested me), and obtain continuing education credits. Little did I know just how life-changing this program would become.
