Meet Your Coach
REGISTERED holistic nutritionist, CERTIFIED FITNESS trainer & life coach
Hi, I'm Kelsey! My pronouns are she/her and I am an award-winning, body-positive Health and Fitness Expert based in Vancouver, Canada 🇨🇦
You might know me as Healthy with Kelsey on Instagram!
I struggled for years battling back and forth with body dysmorphia. At the height of my disordered eating, I stumbled upon the concept of Intuitive Eating and it profoundly changed my life.
It led me to becoming a nutritionist in 2017 and I've never looked back!
My mission is to empower individuals to take the shame out of their wellness game through joyful movement, making peace with food and stepping into their personal power so they can live whole-hearted and fulfilling lives.
I hope you join me on this wild ride to self discovery!
What My Client's Have to Say
It's so freeing to be able to move beyond the dieting mindset. To be able to listen to my body and know what it needs rather than being told what I should be eating from Instagram and blogs. For that I am forever thankful to Kelsey's expertise in guiding me through the Emotional Eating Recovery Program.
Initially I was hesitant about trying intuitive eating because I was scared it was just going to be another failed attempt at losing weight. But after the first session I was absolutely floored. In the last 8 weeks I've realized that unlearning dieting is hard but living a life of repeat dieting and self loathing is much harder!
Kelsey's ability to make you feel seen and heard is unparalleled. Her intuitive eating program was exactly what I needed in creating new behaviours around food and exercise. As an avid gym-goer, I always felt guilty skipping workouts. Now when I take rest days, I don't feel guilty and I actually feel more excited about exercising again.
Let's get down to business
