Susan spent 26 years in Central New York as business owner. She was a Professional Photographer, Custom Picture Framer, and operated a Digital Printing Lab. Like many people, Susan used to think chronic sickness was a normal part of the human condition. Today, she knows that is simply not true. Dedicating herself to the pursuit of good health was the best decision she ever made. Susan focused on healing her body with natural, wholesome foods and improvements in her lifestyle and consciousness. She moved to Asheville, North Carolina to follow her passion as a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
Food is amazing! It affects how we look but also how we feel and think as well. Susan is passionate about educating people to become their hottest, happiest and healthiest self. Healthy food can be delicious, nutritious, affordable and simple to make. She is dedicated to helping people listen to their body and learn to give it what it needs. Healthy living should be a lifestyle rather than a trend.
Marcia spent 22 years in Central NY where she became a 3rd degree black belt and worked as a dental hygienist. She moved to Asheville in April of 2017 to pursue her passion in health and wellness as a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Relationships, exercise, careers, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. As a health coach, Marcia takes a holistic approach to supporting the whole person. The concept of bio-individuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. As your health coach, Marcia will assist you in creating your own personalized wellness plan through encouragement, education and support creating healthy behaviors in nutrition, fitness, weight and stress management.
