Meet  Your Coaches

Hey, I’m Ashley! I am so excited that you’re here and that you’re ready to transform your body & your health! It’s such a pleasure to meet you! So, who am I and why the heck am I here doing this work? Well, I went to school to become a vet technician and at the same time, my EMT career started to take off and I FREAKING loved it! During that time, I was seeing more and more people struggling with their health, wellness and just generally being heard by doctors. Not to mention my own battle I had with myself with metabolic resistance and SIBO. This is what led me to functional medicine and why I do what I do now! It broke my heart and filled me with frustration, that people who suffered from autoimmune problems, gut problems and their weight, were unable to get the help  that they needed and DESERVED!! I am an AFAA certified trainer, NESTA fitness nutrition coach and Level 1 NCI nutritional coach, NCI hormone specialist, NCI mindset specialist, and online coach with a NASM specialization in women’s fitness and working towards my certification for a functional practitioner! I specialize in helping women heal and balance their hormones, revive their gut health, and achieve sustainable fat loss!.Losing weight isn’t as simple as handing a person a meal plan and workout plan. It’s MUCH more than that! The number one thing on my mind always is — the success of my clients! Teaching people they can live a healthy, balanced lifestyle while eating foods they enjoy - that is why I am here!

Hi, I'm Mandy! I have been in the health and fitness industry for over 13 years. I hold numerous certifications in Personal Training, Pre/Postnatal, Strength and Conditioning, Sport Nutrition, Holistic Nutrition and Women's health.

I was diagnosed with Hashimotos in 2003 and Celiac disease in 2011. After my own personal battle with my health declining in 2013, and spending 5 years being passed from doctor to doctor, I took matters into my own hands and began my own journey in the world of holistic and functional health with the full intention to get to the "root cause" of all my ailments. By finding my root cause and healing my own body from the inside out, it has led me to where I am today. 

I am passionate about helping others take control of their own health and find the light at the end of the tunnel, without the need for numerous synthetic medications. I believe every individual deserves to thrive and not just survive! By supporting our body and not suppressing it, we give our bodies the nutrients and love it needs and deserves. We are only given one body. It is our job to take care of it.

Hello, I'm Rae!

I'm a Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist from South Louisiana! Coming from a nutrition and dietetic background it always blew my mind how people are being taught how to “manage” their new diagnosis of disease instead of being taught how to reverse it, put it into remission, or find the root cause. After spending a year interning for a hospital and having to educate patients on the “survival skills” to live with their health conditions I knew the clinical role was not the route for me.

I found functional nutrition through a personal journey of mine. 

I was put on birth control at a really young age of 14, and years later I found myself with a long list of problems that I KNEW weren’t normal for me. After seeing doctor after doctor and having them tell me “everything looks fine” or “this is completely normal for a woman in her 20’s” I eventually had enough and decided to put my health into my own hands. I spent months reading books, listening to podcasts, and trying to learn everything I could about holistic health. Eventually I asked for help and sought out a functional medicine practitioner who helped me get to the underlying root cause of all my health concerns. And since then, I’ve made it my mission to talk about my journey and be an advocate for young women who are being brushed off by healthcare professionals because we’re “too young” to have any real health concerns.

 After watching the healthcare system fail the patients I saw in the hospital along with the same system failing me, I knew I had to be a part of the change to help women take back their health. I had to be an advocate for my own health, and now I’m here to be an advocate for yours too!

Hello, I’m Charis!

I have been in the health and fitness industry for 7 years now. I have experience in personal training, and the holistic nutrition industry. I am in the process of my functional health coach certification and have been helping people on their health and fitness journey for 5 years.
I am a licensed cosmetologist and that is still near and dear to my heart. Functional Nutrition is where my true calling is though. I first got into fitness and nutrition after having my son 9 years ago. I started working out, watching what I was eating and really taking care of my body. I spent from about 12-19 years old struggling with my weight and not knowing how to properly fuel my body or take care of it. I was put on birth control when I was 18 and after some terrible side effects I went off of it. So when I started truly taking care of my body and reading and learning as much as I could do to take care of myself it was such a game changer.

After having my daughter I participated in a 12 week challenge and lost 30 pounds and it really set a fire under me to compete in bodybuilding. I competed in 3 shows and unfortunately completed down regulated all systems of my body due to having a coach who was not watching my hormones or body systems, leaving me with severe metabolic resistance and major gut issues. That’s when I found functional nutrition and after doctor visits and no one being able to help me I reached out to a functional nutrition practitioner. He was able to address all my issues functionally and I was able to restore my hormones and get pregnant with my 3rd child. I have continued to work with my coach to help me stay happy and healthy and functionally address any issues that come my way.
I have such a passion for helping people heal. When they have exhausted all options and when doctors cannot help them and they feel so hopeless, I know how that feels. I love seeing people get results and I love helping them along the way, coming out on the other side happier and healthier with restored hope! We all have our why and mine stems from my own journey and knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel you just have to find it!
