Meet the Coaches
Your Own Wellbeing currently has two health coaches that offer unique perspectives and experiences to our program!
Catherine is the founder and visionary behind Your Own Wellbeing. First and foremost, Catherine is a strong Christian. “I believe there is one God and there is one way to God. I believe the Holy Bible. God has prepared good works for us and we are to walk in them— but I think we are missing them sometimes and I’d like to help remedy that.”
With years as a pharmacist under her belt, Catherine has a passion for health. “I’d much rather help someone get off their medications than to start them. I believe in disease prevention. I believe in feeling your best so that you can do your best for Christ and His Kingdom.”
Here is what Catherine has to say about her dreams, vision, and passion that brought about Your Own Wellbeing:
“For quite some time now I’ve had a love for healthy, restorative practices and it has fueled my passion for Christ. Let me explain. I used to think of my physical body as “not good enough”- never thin enough or toned enough or fast enough or strong enough. So, I would push and push my body to try to fit some mold that I had in mind as perfect. I was never satisfied and I never thought of my physical health as a reflection of God.
This was in opposition to what God says about me.
Then, God opened another door for me and I began the process of learning how to balance hormones in a woman’s body using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. This opened my eyes to an entirely new kind of health care- preventative medicine, functional medicine, lifestyle medicine. Functional medicine seeks to discover the root cause of symptoms and remedy it, as opposed to the current conventional medical community that spends more time treating symptoms rather than determining their cause. I committed to learning all that I could about functional medicine and went through a fellowship program to guide me.
Using the principles I learned in my functional medicine training, I began to see a few patterns in my patients. The patients who did really well with me and were seeing lasting change, had begun to follow a healthy eating plan or exercise or meditate in conjunction with the prescriptions and supplements that I recommended to them. The patients who were unimpressed with my services, were not putting in the work- they had been looking for the bandaid approach.
This led to a major epiphany for me- I am not in charge of people’s health. I hold no power to heal. God is in control of healing and you are responsible for taking care of yourself. I am here to guide, advise, motivate and inspire.
That is how I came up with the title for this site- Your Own Wellbeing. You’re responsible for finding the things that work for you and you’re responsible for doing them— and it always involves something more than a pill.
