Author, Speaker, Educator
Hi, I'm Stephanie! I am the host of the hit Eating Like You Give a Damn podcast where I interview experts, innovators, and celebrities about the global movement towards a plant-based future.
I'm also the Award-Winning Author of the book The Skinny On Eating Like You Give A Damn.
And, I help vegan and plant-based health, life, and fitness coaches design a business that attracts their ideal clients, gets outstanding results for those clients, and earns an exciting income - all while making a huge impact for people, animals, and the planet.
My journey to teaching about vegan coaching as a business began after I earned my associate's degree in Elementary Education, and pursued my bachelor's in Professional Communication from Old Dominion University in 2009.
At the end of 2009, after uncovering some disturbing facts about the standard practices of our food system, I began seeing the world through a very different lens. Over the next few years while living in Bahrain and Italy, I started learning more and more about animals as food sources (and other consumer goods) that contradicted everything I had been taught to believe about my health, how my food choices affect the future of the planet, and the affect to each of the animals used for a profit.
I saw so much injustice, and I decided to be a part of the solution. So, I retired my old southern meat, egg and dairy-based recipes and learned how to create a menu of delicious and nutritious plant-based comfort foods. And, I have followed a healthy 100% plant-based diet and ethical vegan lifestyle ever since.
After just a short time, I experienced a host of noticeable improvements to my health as a result of choosing vegan-friendly foods. Most notably, a chronic digestive disorder I had suffered from since childhood (and had been declared irreversible by gastroenterologists) was suddenly healed.
Passionate about the power of a wholesome vegan lifestyle in all areas of life, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, I pursued my formal nutrition education with the American School of Natural Health in 2014 while working as the assistant to the founder and president. And, I became a graduate of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies at eCornell in 2019.
Then, I set out to empower people to make informed choices that align with their values, too.
After consulting for practicing physicians to help their patients implement plant-based nutrition, I began my own coaching practice as a Vegan Health Coach in 2016 where I learned how to facilitate incredible results for clients and earn a great living.
I earned professional certifications as a Trainer, Coach, and Mentor with Success Resources, a company that provides transformative education and events for big names in personal growth like Tony Robbins, Sara Blakley, and Gary Vaynerchuk.
Since overcoming the struggles of starting and growing a profitable vegan coaching practice for myself, and discovering that others were overwhelmed and stuck on the entrepreneurial hamster wheel, I set out to empower vegan and plant-based practitioners with the steps and tools to create outstanding success in their online coaching business.
The first step to achieving that success starts here with obtaining a Vegan Nutrition Health Coach Certification.
The next steps are to:
1. set a strong foundation to your business with a clear and compelling message,
2. create an outcome-driven program that clients would be dying to pay you for,
3. and follow a proven plan that stands the test of time to market and sell your program.
This is the winning recipe to creating a successful vegan coaching practice that transforms lives and makes a huge impact in the world while also enjoying the financial, time, and location freedoms that come with having an online business.
As an educator, author, and speaker, I am committed to the growth of the vegan movement through education, personal development, and compassion for our fellow humans. If you are too, connect with me on Facebook and Instagram.
And, I look forward to supporting you in achieving the influence, income, and impact you crave as a vegan coach.
See you in the course!
