My Story

by Heather


Garden-Heather-HabelkaMy dad’s cancer diagnosis led me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) almost 10 years ago.

As a student, I studied over 100 dietary theories, and had the opportunity to learn from 85 of the top experts in functional medicine including Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Andrew Weil, and Dr. Bernie Siegel.

Since graduating from IIN’s Health Coach Training Program (HCTP), I’ve completed numerous certifications and advanced courses in integrative health and wellness including:
– Hormone Health
– Holistic Health Cooking
– Nourishing Thyroid Health
– Cooking for People with Serious Illnesses
– New Healers Master Coaching

I recently completed IIN’s Coaching Intensive Practicum. This allowed me to sit for the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) exam, which I passed.

Becoming an NBC-HWC is considered the health coaching profession’s highest credential.

I’ve found an incredible sense of purpose, and service, in helping the women I work with reach higher levels of health, wellness, and awareness.

Being able to witness their transformations, and help them protect their health, is an absolute privilege.
