HI! I’M NAOMI!
I'm a certified Holistic Health Coach.
I help people learn how to eat real food for energy and adopt clean living practices for better health and improved fitness.
If you’ve been reading for a while you know my journey from couch potato to marathoner. Then from marathoner to over-trained athlete.
(If you’re new, welcome! I’m so glad you are here! You can read my story here).
For years I’ve blogged about my training and races. And learned so much about fitness and food along the way.
But then I did too much and overtrained. I had terrible insomnia, night sweats, pain in my legs, fatigue to the point where I couldn't even run just one mile without feeling like I wanted to pass out, and my gut was a hot mess.
My doctor told me I had IBS and gave me a prescription to help with anxiety and depression. I didn't want drugs and never filled the prescription. Instead, I started seeing a functional medicine practitioner.
My mind was blown by what I learned and that led to to attend the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) to become a certified health coach.
i believe in taking a holistic approach to health. because health is about more than just food and exercise.
Its about our work, relationships, and how we value ourselves.

So what do I share here?
This space continues to be my personal blog. And now I'll be sharing "behind-the-scenes" and "lessons learned" in starting a side business.
What I've learned thus far has made me appreciate my corporate job even more than I did before. And more importantly, it has forced me to look inward and "peel back the layers" of myself to understand who I want to serve and the value that I can provide.
I've only been doing this for a short time but the amount of personal growth and introspection has been tremendous. And I finally feel like I'm in a place where I can share these insights.
I hope you'll stay and join me on this journey!
