Hi! I'm Emily. I am so excited you are here.
All my life I've been a change agent, and willing to step out of what everyone else considered "business as usual" to do things a different way.
Working in the healthcare system for 16 years as a RN was no different. I assumed roles where leading change was a part of the job requirements. Over time, I grew tired of the insanity of making negligible change and longed for real impact. In 2018, I left my career, became a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, and have been focusing on holistic wellness, prevention, and getting to the root cause of illness and dysfunction, ever since.
However, during that same time I was studying functional medicine, a sports injury set me back. BIG TIME. While I was learning how to support people in addressing the root causes of their illness, my own physical and mental health was spiraling downward. What I learned was that no amount of intellectual knowledge could "outsmart" my cravings and out of control eating behavior.
30 pounds overweight and no resolution in sight. Body aches and pains day and night. I had given up...soothing myself with donuts and sweets, over indulging on my favorite dishes. Late night snacking or an ice cream run. I was depressed and feeling quite dark, having tried "diets", exercise that just caused more pain, and powdered shakes that left me starving.
I knew the steps to change and what it would take, but I could never get myself there.
Real, tangible, holistic change. How? Might think it's not possible, or not worth your time? Skeptical?
I thought so too. Until I tried WILDFIT.
WILDFIT shattered my patterns and old ways of thinking about food and wellness. I thought I knew quite a lot as a healthcare worker. Well, I didn't (because they don't teach this stuff to doctors or nurses!).
WILDFIT is an experience to be had, a program that provides a priceless education in personal empowerment, nutrition, and teaching your body to work for you. WILDFIT set me up on the human diet, 90 days of structured transformation (nutritional, physical, and spiritual), and then gave me a framework to create a lifestyle of lasting health and vitality.
My greatest wish is to share what I have learned to help you transform your life and your health. After reading this, I hope you will take a serious look at your own health scenario, take charge, and book a call with me to talk about how WILDFIT can change your life. Change is 100% possible, and it doesn't have to be hard. Let's get there...together.
I look forward to working with you!

I began my WildFit journey 30 pounds over weight. Most of my life my weight was consistent, with the exception of the previous 3 years (2018-2021). I kept putting on weight after a knee injury, and I was getting very frustrated. I was extremely active before this injury, and now, every time I tried to exercise, my whole body hurt. This inactivity and frustration led to more eating, and eating things that were definitely not good for my body.
Weight change over 90 days: 176 to 157
Total inches lost: 13 (I didn't measure all the places I was supposed to)
Marco participated in this challenge only because I was in it. Turns out, he became truly involved! He was having bouts of gout 3-4 times a year in his feet, and his knee and low back were bothering him regularly.
Weight change: 253 to 221
Total inches lost: 24.5 (he measured a few more places than I did)
