I know the amount of physical energy and mental stamina it takes to be kick-ass at a corporate job. Juggling workouts, meal prep, socializing, family time, stress and time management, all the while getting the job done with a gold star at the end of the day, is my forte! I began my legal career on a clean slate at 19 years old. Over the span of 13 years I worked as a paralegal under about 20 different attorneys, all with varying personalities, in addition to managing support staff. Even though some of those years were certainly challenging, I consider the legal part of my life a very grounding chapter. It wasn’t until I chose to go vegan in 2011 that I decided to make a drastic change and go back to school to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences. Going vegan unearthed my inner phoenix in pursuit to help others evolve into wellness. My fascination in nutrition and fitness budded at the very early age of 10. It was at 10 years old that my life changed forever with the diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes (also called “juvenile diabetes” and “insulin dependent diabetes” which is much different than the lifestyle epidemic of Type 2 Diabetes). This means that without insulin injections, I would die. Throughout my childhood I continued exploring nutrition and fitness and I went through stages of wanting to be a nutritionist, personal trainer, and counselor when I grew up. Now as a Health Coach, I am a dynamic combination of all three of those professions! My personal health struggles and victories with Type 1 Diabetes has given me the gift of empathy for others with similar challenges but also a realistic view on what it takes to be well. - Kimberly Garrett, CHC, CPT, FNS, BS WHAT I'VE ACHIEVED Certified Health Coach through the American Council of Exercise (ACE, NCCA accredited).
