On a mission to empower global wellness and maximize potential, Nicole, a 2011 Integrative Nutrition graduate of the Health Coach Training Program, and Lauren, a current student, founded Art of Abundant Living, and have experienced growing success since day one.

This interview highlights how Nicole and Lauren got to where they are today, and how they plan to address the increasing health concerns in Qatar.
