Do you know that the human body is made of 50 trillion cells and every second each cell coordinates billions of chemical reaction. Your Heart beats 100.000 and pumps 7500 liters of blood through 96,000 kms of vessels EVERY DAY. Every month you completely regenerate your outer layer of skin... we humans are amazing and the more I studied and found out I decided to change my career path and work with helping people to be the highest and best version of themselves. This is my story why I am a Health Coach
I'm Helen, and I want to take a moment to share a little piece of my journey with you. It's a journey that's filled with a deep passion for health and wellness, and it has brought me from the heart of Sweden to the warm embrace of Tennessee, USA.
A Personal Story:
In Sweden, I thrived as a project leader in one of the world's most renowned pharmaceutical companies. The buzz of the corporate world, the responsibilities I shouldered, and the globetrotting adventures I undertook—it was a life I truly loved. My family and friends were nearby, and I cherished the mornings when I'd join strong and determined ladies for invigorating 6 a.m. forest workouts. Life was content, and my heart was full.
But then, in early 2015, a pivotal moment arrived. As my family gathered around the dinner table, my husband shared exciting news—he had been offered a career opportunity in Shanghai. A rush of emotions flooded through me. I had vowed not to leave Sweden again, having experienced the mixed feelings that come with living abroad. But my husband, craving new challenges beyond our daily routines, felt differently. Our daughter, at 14, was eager for the adventure, fueled by stories from a friend who had moved to Beijing. Our 9-year-old son was too young to grasp the implications of such a move. I sought advice from family and friends, and while their words were encouraging, my inner voice whispered, "Don't go." Nevertheless, I chose to listen to the chorus of well-wishers, thinking that two years would pass quickly and that this was an adventure for our family.
Little did I know that our lives were about to undergo a profound transformation.
Life in Shanghai:
We relocated to Shanghai, where our children settled into international schooling, my husband found fulfillment in his work, and I embarked on an MBA journey. It was during this time that I discovered a newfound passion—exercise. I completed a Personal Trainer course through the American Council of Exercise and realized that guiding people on their path to wellness was where I truly belonged.
Shortly after earning my certification, I had the privilege of leading fitness classes at my gym. Witnessing individuals transform their lives through exercise filled me with immense joy and purpose.
Navigating Life's Twists:
As time passed, my husband and I realized that our paths were diverging, but we agreed to stay in China to ensure our daughter's education continuity. Amidst this transition, a chance encounter led me to a new chapter—a deep and meaningful connection with someone who, like me, had faced life's challenges with courage and resilience. Love brought me from the East to the West, first our blended families moved to Mexico and since 2022 we call Tennessee home.
A Commitment to Holistic Health:
The pandemic shifted the course of my life once more. I decided to enhance my skills and earned certifications in Health, Nutrition, and Wellness. In February 2023, I graduated with a specialization in Hormone Health.
Today, as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I'm on a mission to empower individuals to become the best versions of themselves. I've walked a path of personal growth and transformation, and I'm here to walk it with you, too.
I look forward to connecting with you, hearing your unique story, and helping you achieve your health and wellness goals.
With warmth and excitement,
