I am thrilled to present the Best in Class Health Leadership Award to October 2012 graduate, Michele Gelman. Michele is a student who really walks the talk. Once a client herself, she took steps to improving her own health before deciding to make a career of helping others do the same.
After a year of suffering from many physical ailments, she was introduced to the world of nutrition when she enrolled in a 6-month program, run by an Integrative Nutrition graduate. By the time those six months were up she was well on her way to healing herself, and moving on to the rest of her family. She then decided to enroll in the Health Coach Training Program herself, and now she’s helping others get healthy. She has been featured in two magazines, and through talks at corporations and schools, group programs, and individual sessions, she’s already rocking the ripple effect!
What inspired you to enroll at IIN?
I was experiencing various health issues for a year, so I signed up for a 6-month program with a Health Coach who had studied at IIN. By the time she left Chicago, I was hooked on nutrition and the amazing effects it has on health and wellbeing, so I enrolled at IIN for more!
