Hi I’m Cher: Health Coach, chocolate fanatic and lover of all things green.
I appreciate the fact that many people’s journey to wellness did not always begin with happy yogi smiles or kale smoothies.
Trust me, mine was quite the opposite….
I can still recall my terrible mood swings and all too frequent trips to the mall to buy bigger, looser clothes.
Looking back, my daily trips to McDonalds for a “quick snack” of a cheeseburger, fries and soda…
… or my second breakfast of Mountain Dew and Skittles, most definitely did not help my case.
I was constantly bloated, tired and my anxiety was through the roof.
Now, I’m unapologetically happy, energetic and have thankfully left my bloat and ever-present anxiety far away to a distant memory.
I have also grown to love gentle hikes, goji berries and restaurants with the words “local” and “organic” plastered all over the menus.
As I’m sure you can imagine these new found loves of mine did not come without a few bumps in the road.
This is why I am on a mission. My mission is to empower you to not settle for feeling just “fine” or “okay.” Not settling for a life of constant calorie counting, restriction and self-doubt. Life is meant to be incredible, full of laughs and smiles. Not constant stress and discomfort.
Flashing back to 2012 is when everything began for me, at Keene State College in the good ol’ state of New Hampshire.
Here, I took a class that changed the course of my life. It not only helped me to begin my own personal journey to better health but made it far too easy for me to pick my major: Health Promotion and Wellness: Behavior and Health.
After graduating, I enrolled in The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where I became a Certified Health Coach.
The pieces were finally starting to come together.
I opened up BalancedBodies, my Health Coaching Practice. I dove right into working with people by giving nutritional seminars and workshops, as well as individual and group coaching.
I also joined forces with local doctors and wellness companies and was able to expand even further by helping to run a corporate wellness program in Western North Carolina.
A large part of what I do is encouraging and empowering my clients to be the best they can be, not to settle and to always be growing and feeling better.
In order to stay true to my clients (and myself) I then enrolled in the School of Applied Functional Medicine. Here I was extensively trained in Functional Medicine and am en route to have my certification within the year.
The puzzle pieces have all come together for me and I could not be more thrilled to help them come together for you too! It is more than possible to get where you want to be, all it takes is that first step!
