Here at Integrative Nutrition, we’re committed to making it even easier for you to live a healthier, happier life. That’s why earlier this summer we announced a very special opportunity for a chance to win full tuition coverage to the Health Coach Training Program. We asked our community to answer one simple question: How would an Integrative Nutrition education empower you to live your best life?

The response to our Empower You contest was overwhelming, and we received many heartfelt, passionate responses. We’re so proud of everyone who participated in the contest and are grateful to have you all as part of the Integrative Nutrition family.

Today, we’re excited to introduce you to our ten Empower You winners, who were chosen to receive full tuition!

Read on to learn more about each winner!

“I chose IIN because I want to be a part of the movement and community that is committed to the shared mission of revolutionizing health across the world. IIN is contributing in a major way to solving the health crisis we are facing societally and I want to be someone who can help contribute to the solution as a health coach. I hope to gain the knowledge, skillset, and mindset required as a health coach to empower as many people as I can to transform their health and their lives."

Kathy Rodriguez
Bulverde, TX 

“I am excited about IIN’s wholistic approach to nutrition and the broad spectrum of curriculum that covers not only nutrition, but spirituality, relationships, physical exercise and bio-individuality! I lead a community outreach ministry which is both a support group and educational.  We teach how food can heal, and support those going through disease and illness.  I believe with IIN’s health coach training, I can add more credibility to my ministry, which will help us reach more people and save more lives! I am so excited!”

Jose Eduardo Flores
Buffalo, MN


“I needed a change.  A friend of mine is a coach with IIN, and she recommended that I take the course.  However, financially it was not possible.  So this scholarship is a huge blessing! (I hope to gain) The ability to have better nutrition (integrative and intuitive) for myself, my family and my local community.  And to increase HEALTH in us all!”

Dr. Armaghan (Armi) Azad
Irvine, CA


“I love the concept of bio-individuality and using this as the basis for lifestyle changes to improve overall health. I would love to learn how best to incorporate my teachings at IIN into some sort of workshop or lectures for doctors and/or other medical providers across hospitals/residency programs nationwide.” 

Valerie Williams
Broken Arrow, OK


“With this incredible IIN education, I hope to gain truth and understanding to advance my own health journey.  Then being armed with truth and confidence, It will be so fulfilling to guide others to their health and happiness.  I'm so excited to be empowered to live my best life, to help others live theirs, and to be a part of making a difference in our world.”

“I chose IIN because of the many avenues to health they teach. IIN recognizes the importance of the health for mind, body, and soul. IIN wants their students to be successful and offers classes that are helpful for starting your own business. I hope to gain more knowledge and confidence, to teach others, so they can have more knowledge and confidence. I want to help empower others. I want to show people they have to the power to heal themselves.”

Nicolle Brolo Samayoa
New York, NY


“I have witnessed the importance of an integrative approach to nutrition and wellness from a young age, primarily driven by my family’s genetic predisposition for diabetes. Despite having reversed my own diabetes, I still don’t have it all figured out, and that’s why I’m joining the IIN program. 

Jointly with the skills and knowledge I will learn from doctors, leading physicians, researchers, and nutrition experts, I want to share my story and learn how to talk to others about integrative nutrition because I believe in it. I realize that perhaps the entrenched healthcare system is not creating health, but health coaches are. They are people like me who believe in the power of changing the way we eat, and more importantly, the bigger picture including the impact of relationships, career, spirituality, and physical exercise.” 

Judith Torel
Albany, NY

“The program is comprehensive and holistic in approach and that is a refreshing perspective in our current reductionistic culture AND is the same approach I take in my work and my life!! (I hope to) Take my current successful coaching practice to the next level from regional to national” 

Victoria Socci
Lincoln, CA

“I was coached by an IIN graduate 5 years ago, and over the 6 month coaching period with her, my life (and overall health) was completely transformed.  My coach was amazing.  She supported me in taking an honest look at each area of my life that was not where I wanted it to be, and helped me come up with concrete steps as to how to improve each area in order to achieve an overall happier and healthier life.  I was empowered to take back my life with the encouragement and guidance of my coach, and I hope to do the same (as a health coach in training!) for others.”

Marinda Fruge
Washington, DC

"Becoming certified through IIN will allow me to take the next step in my journey of becoming a health coach, empowering both myself and others to live our best lives. I hope to gain greater knowledge in how to use food wellness to promote living  as one's happiest, healthiest, most authentic self; and to provide enlightenment on how making healthier choices can be both simple and effective. I am committed to creating safe spaces to share this knowledge and hope to inspire family and friends, but especially would like to serve both women and African American communities, as these are groups that I identify with that are also more at risk for pre-disposed health conditions. I'm extremely passionate about well-being and am looking forward to growing in my journey with the help of IIN!"

Thank you again to everyone who participated in our Empower You contest, and congratulations to our winners. We can’t wait for you to start your journey with IIN!
