Hi! My name is Caitlin and I’m so excited to be part of the incredible team here at Leaves of Life. The kind of world I want to live in celebrates holistic health with a focus on balance, where body positivity is the norm, diet culture is not, and where “bad” foods don’t exist. It’s possible with small but powerful steps, accountability, support, and making it fun!
I’m a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach certified through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy with the Institute of Functional Medicine. I’m also an NCCA Certified Personal Trainer, with a specialization in fitness nutrition. On the Leaves of Life team, I’m a one-on-one Health Coach in partnership with practitioners. Working collaboratively with doctors, nurses, and lifestyle educators offers a clear treatment plan. I also provide laser allergy treatment for patients who need help with environmental and food allergies and other imbalances.
Over eleven years ago, I knew I had to make a change. At my heaviest, I was fifty pounds overweight, tired and moody, with skin issues, environmental allergies, food sensitivities, and frequent headaches. I joined a gym, became certified as a Personal Trainer and my passion for the gym led me to fitness competitions. Most recently I competed in the Arnold Classic. Competing has taught me extreme drive, intrinsic motivation, patience, and discipline, but definitely not balance. Now, I’m an advocate for balancing physical, mental and emotional health, which I’ve seen spill over into and improve all different areas of my own life and in the lives of my family, friends, and clients.
I’ve been working as a part of the holistic health world for about a decade now! I have owned and operated a successful nutrition club and storefront, led many large group fitness classes, taught dozens of nutrition workshops and seminars, managed thousands of supplements as a buyer for a health food store, and I’ve appeared on 10TV Columbus multiple times leading health, fitness and cooking segments. I spend hours every week self-studying to stay up to date in the ever-expanding world of natural health, and I enjoy continuing education conferences and seminars. I look forward to meeting you and working with you to help you achieve your goals and live your best, balanced life!
