Our graduates do amazing things as Holistic Wellness Coaches

Meet the people who changed their lives by becoming an IAWP Certified Holistic Wellness Coach

I am a holistic practitioner

Donna Lee Humble

I had over 14 years of experience in the wellness field yet I had no idea how to market myself, coach my clients, or make a living following my passion.

That all changed when I became a student at the IAWP.

I am very happy to now be able to say I am an IAWP Certified Wellness Coach, my business has taken off and I’ve created more balance and confidence in all areas of my life, plus I recently had my first $10,000 month!

When I was let go from my corporate job, I had no doubt that this was my opportunity to finally be able to contribute something meaningful to the world. When I found the IAWP, I enrolled within 2 weeks of getting laid off.

I learned that wellness coaching is a real thing that people get paid for and it can be a lucrative career with the proper support, commitment, and business tools. I also found a new community of like-minded people who want to make a real difference in their corner of the world using the power of wellness and coaching. If I can do it, anyone can do it. You have the power within you.

Through my training at the IAWP, I found the missing answers to aligning my purpose with the rest of my life. Best of all, finding my purpose has meant being able to create a career I love and live life on my own terms. I don’t have to climb a corporate ladder or do something that doesn’t feel right to me. I get to decide. Today I can proudly say I’ve found my purpose - Wellness, coaching and empowering women.

This is a dream come true. I CANNOT believe just 6 months ago I was feeling so purposeless and down and out and now I'm taking on PAYING clients! I KNOW if I can do this, anyone can.

Catherine Spriggs Class of 2020
Aimee Schrank

This has been so exciting for me! One of the reasons I went into this field was to be able to stay at home with my kids while following my passion, working from home. I now run my coaching practice from home, working with clients virtually.

During my training I took on paying clients, created a program to support moms and launched my coaching practice called Redesigning Motherhood. And I just had a $10,000 month!

Aimee Schrank Class of 2016

I was a school teacher

I was a cosmetologist

Melanie1sq

I was a cosmetologist of 22 years. It was a great career but it wasn't fulfilling anymore. I was also on my own wellness journey and the more I discovered and shared with people, I realized they were really struggling.

When I came across the IAWP, I was hooked. It all clicked for me that this is what I was looking for. My biggest transformation is building the confidence in myself I needed and the skills to effectively coach others.

Melanie Willette Houdek Class of 2019
unnamed

I was an anxious law school student. I worried about everything and my stomach was in knots all of the time. When I became a law school professor, I constantly had students coming to me who reminded me of myself. A lightbulb went on one day and I knew I wanted to become a Wellness Coach.

The IAWP has exceeded my expectations and more! The quality of the program and the depth of the teaching is what has really impressed me. There are a lot of programs out there, but there are not a lot of programs where you feel the leaders are truly invested in your success and you're getting the most out of the program...and that's what IAWP does so well.

Janet Thompson Jackson Class of 2020

I am a law professor

I was a wealth manager

Natalia Edelmann

I was in wealth management for over 10 years. And I loved it...until I didn't anymore. Until there was this feeling inside of me that there was more for me.

I hit a point where I got burned out. And I started getting symptoms in my body. When I came across the IAWP, I got a reset.

I'm so happy the universe led me on this path! I love my life right now, it's amazing!

Natalia Edelman Class of 2018
Kelly Williams

I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 30 years and I’ve always had an interest in helping people improve their lives. But I felt I needed a certification to go along with my experience that would really teach me how to coach people.

I look back over all of the years of helping people and if I had known the CORE Coaching Method back then, I could have had more of an impact on people. The IAWP has helped me see what I was missing in terms of really helping people. People feel like I am listening now.

Kelly Williams Class of 2019

Kody Burke

The IAWP has helped me to break out of my shell, put myself out there and gain confidence.

Being a student has helped me on a personal level from the wellness education and becoming an effective coach. I became a healthier individual and have gained the confidence to coach clients effectively by following a proven system.

Kody Burke Class of 2017
Stacy Thewis

I never felt like I had the time or resources to really get to the root of the problem with my patients. I was at a crossroads in my career and I knew I needed to change.

When I found the IAWP and saw their Wellness 360 model, I got goosebumps.

I have since left my full-time nursing position and launched my wellness coaching business.

Karina Hammer

When I found the IAWP, everything started to change. I have learned more from the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification program than I could have ever imagined.

What I love about the IAWP is that everything they teach you works. I've followed the exact systems they provide and immediately signed up my first client!

Karina Hammer Class of 2014
Alie Harwood

Being in the IAWP Community has been amazing - to be with like-minded people who are so passionate, supportive and inspiring. My biggest successes are launching my website and wellness blog, sharing my story, working with clients both online and locally and leaving my teaching job to go full time with wellness coaching!

Becoming an IAWP Holistic Wellness Coach has been life-changing. I've been able to leave corporate and become an entrepreneur.

I actually have people telling me I am now glowing!

Helene Larocquesq

For over 10 years, I’ve been passionate about bringing wellness to the workplace.

Doors are opening for me now. I'm becoming the go-to for wellness at work, I've done several workshops, and I've signed up 25 clients so far.

It’s ongoing, you’re part of a community...I can’t say enough good things about the IAWP. I’m living on cloud nine…

Tania Mather


The training has been life transforming. I wouldn't be who I am today if it weren't for the IAWP Wellness Coach Certification.

There's been a dual impact as I've learned to transform others, I've transformed my own life.

Tania Mather Class of 2017
Angela Gowdy

Before becoming a Wellness Coach, I was so used to just telling people what to do and they never did it.

Now, it is amazing to experience my clients being excited about their changes. Coaching does more than I could have imagined.

I'm able to stay at home with my kids

Leigha Benson Class of 2018
Molly Sommerhalder

I've been a yoga teacher for over 10 years. At the IAWP, I learned how to incorporate wellness coaching with my yoga business and go to the next level in sharing wellness with so many more people because of the tools I gained here.

The IAWP Wellness Coach Certification gave me the confidence to attract clients and the tools to get over my fears.

Taking the leap wasn't easy, but I knew it was the step I had to take.

Sam Perry Class of 2019
Sandra Payne

I had a 13-year successful career as an RN. I began exploring natural health alternatives for my own illness of depression and found hope and success in learning to manage my symptoms without medication.

Since joining the IAWP, my life my life has been consistently aligned with the training. It has opened doors to new opportunities and created the foundation I was seeking.

Shamika Wallace

Even though I have the background as a Nurse, I learned so much about holistic wellness and how to help individuals.

I’m so completely grateful for the IAWP because they have allowed me to transition into a coaching role so that I can help individuals one-on-one understand what’s going on with their mind, their bodies, their soul and spirit and really get them to a complete 360 degree of health and wellness.

Shamika Wallace Class of 2020
Sue Palmer

I am a psychologist and certified life, business and education coach. Although I was already an experienced coach, I never had any business training.

The IAWP helped me to hone my coaching skills, determine who I wanted to really help and launch my online practice.

I've been able to plan for my retirement and for the first time in my life, I feel totally in charge of my destiny.

Sue Palmer-Conn Class of 2018

I am a life coach

I was a corporate exec

Kim Goeltom

I was a corporate executive working 60-70 hours per week doing 12 shots of espresso per day to keep up. I only slept about 4 hours per night.

In 2016 I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue. I knew I needed a solution.

As I started healing with Wellness 360, I wanted to share this with everyone else I knew.

Kim Goeltom Class of 2017
Melanie Halter

I was a 5th grade teacher who loved my students but was miserable. I felt trapped and I knew it was time to look for something different.

When I found the IAWP, I felt like I was home.

I'm now working in my sweet spot and I feel that joy coming out as I coach clients, lead workshops and earn an income doing something I really love.

Melanie Halter Class of 2019

Laura Albers

Being a mental health therapist, I have always had a strong desire to help others. But I felt there was a missing piece and a disconnect between physical and mental health.

Joining the IAWP was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I'm now impacting thousands of people's lives through my workshops, coaching programs and online videos.

Laura Albers Class of 2016
Eileen Franco Landscapesq

Before the IAWP, I worked in a corporate environment. I developed chronic stress, fatigue, insomnia and more. The breakdown in my health made me realize I didn’t want to climb the corporate ladder anymore, it wasn’t fulfilling and I wanted to do something more.

I am so happy and so grateful! I feel so different. I’m not the same person I was when I enrolled. I feel so much more connected to myself and I know myself. Here I am today, who knew that my life would take this turn?! I reclaimed my health and recreated my career.

Eileen Franco Class of 2020

Hayley Vincent


I had put a lot of pressure on myself from a young age to do well and look a certain way. I developed a lot of self-hate and battled with bulimia for years. When I looked for help, the only answers were focused on nutrition and exercise.

So I went on my own healing journey. Discovering the IAWP and the holistic Wellness 360 approach is what helped me and now I'm helping young women who are experiencing what I did.

I'm only 26 but I feel so lucky to be in this position!

Hayley Vincent Class of 2020
Kate Piscopo

I had been a massage therapist for 15 years and had been helping my clients with their health and wellness for some time and was ready to take the next step to help them make real, lasting change.

I have a whole new lease on life!

Kate Piscapo Class of 2019

I'm a massage therapist

I was a new coach

Neshama Mousseau

I joined the IAWP after graduating from another coach certification program. I realized I didn't have the coaching or business skills I needed to create the kind of coaching practice I wanted to have.

So many things have happened since finding the IAWP. I have a new level of confidence. And I'm getting ready to start with my 50th client and getting paid to do what I love!

Neshama Mousseau Class of 2017
Morgan Sheets

To be honest, I thought I knew it all when I joined the program.I was the person people asked for advice and came to with their problems.

But the truth was, I didn't know how to create transformations for them.

The IAWP showed me how to become not only a great coach, but a better person.

Morgan Sheets Class of 2014

Swapna Medidi

Being a student at the IAWP has motivated me and inspired me to take more positive action steps in my life. As a busy mom of two small children, I was lacking awareness, focus, self-care and boundaries. All that has changed.

I’ve worked with 14 coaching clients and have received powerful success stories about my work, launched a group of 100 people, have been invited to speak, and am reaching my ideal clients. I am really grateful to the IAWP for all of this!

Swapna Medidi Class of 2020
Michelle Anderson Johnson

As I searched for programs to learn more about wellness, I came upon many health coach programs. But I was looking for a program that specifically focused on wellness because wellness encompasses so much more than health.

And that is why the IAWP was the perfect fit for me. The IAWP’s Wellness 360 philosophy correlates with my value of wellness and how it should be perceived.

Michelle Anderson-Johnson Class of 2020

SuziReader

Being a student at the IAWP has helped me so much! I have learned many interesting things through the assignments and reading. I loved learning from all of the Professors from diverse backgrounds.

Personally I feel more connected to my ‘why’ than ever. I see a clear vision of the brand I am developing and the lives that I will change.

Suzi Reader Class of 2020
RivkaCaro

The IAWP community and training has proven to be the most valuable asset in my wellness journey. Becoming a wellness coach has been life-changing for me. The wellness information has helped me solve my own health issues, including fibromyalgia, gut issues, and stress issues.

And the coaching training has been invaluable to me both personally and in helping others. The Core Coaching Method works so beautifully both with practice clients and family. It's a wonderful system!

heather brittain

Nine months ago I hopped into Module 1 at the IAWP with a big dream and no direction. I knew that my work as a full-time nurse was purposeful but misaligned.

I think initially I thought it was like any other certification - 12 modules, finish up in a few months, and then see what happens. Man, oh man, was I wrong. I never expected to have a full business up and running by this January. I am so grateful for the IAWP for making my dreams a bigger reality than I ever believed, and teaching me how to remain healthy and well in the process.

Heather Brittain Class of 2021
Jen Martin thumbnail 1

I have multiple sclerosis. In 2017, I had no energy to do anything. I was just merely existing. My doctors couldn’t help me and finally I decided to take action to take back control of my health naturally. I found the IAWP and signed up immediately, without hesitation.

I've had breakthroughs in my own health and my clients are now experiencing the same thing. Since graduating, I have a thriving coaching business. The skills I learned through IAWP have set me up for extreme success!

Catalina Rojas

Before the IAWP, my job was so demanding and stressful so I decided to resign and find my purpose in life. Finding the IAWP community was an incredible experience. Learning with people from many different places and facing different challenges was so gratifying.

Having the opportunity to participate in the Live Coaching Labs and Live Workshops allowed me to apply all the information I was learning and overcome my biggest fears. My life has changed since the beginning of this journey. This certification gave me the necessary skills to be helpful and help my clients progress in their lives. This is the best part of my job!

Catalina Rojas Class of 2020
corinne fabre

Before the IAWP, I felt disconnected with myself and my life purpose. I was unhappy with my career, my relationships and my health.

Today I can say - I did it! I am now an IAWP Certified Holistic Wellness Coach! I am feeling so grateful for this journey and don’t have enough words to describe the joy, appreciation, and growth in my heart right now. This is a new beginning, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next.

Alex Simmonds

I wanted to have passion in my work and I was bored of only putting my efforts into other people's dreams. I chose Wellness Coaching because I have been on my own wellness journey and I realized I had a lot of experience and knowledge which could support people going through similar challenges to myself.

Through the IAWP experience, I have become more confident in being seen as myself. This has been huge for me and has allowed me to overcome a lot of my limiting beliefs.I look back at where I was a year ago and I am so proud of my accomplishments.

Alex Simmonds Class of 2020
Susan Batastini Landscape

After 24 years as a School Psychologist, just turning 50 and living as a new empty-nester, I knew I needed to make a life change and find that passion and purpose that was there 20 years ago.

The IAWP has been a tremendous learning experience for me. I have had years and years of specialized training in my field of School Psychology and Educational Leadership and I can honestly say the 12 module program of the IAWP has been one of my favorite learning experiences.

Aditi Rastogi 2

My life and health was totally transformed after I started the IAWP training. I gained not only the wellness knowledge to overcome my autoimmune disease naturally but I also found my purpose in life.

I’ve had many successes since graduating, including signing up paid coaching clients easily becoming confident, and positively impacting my family and friends' lives.

Aditi Rastogi Class of 2020
Christina Benishin

After leaving the academic life, I tried several different activities to keep busy. Initially I was primarily interested in working with people on their weight loss journey. But with the IAWP helped me to look deeper into a person's challenges and look deeper into my own as well.

It was a very fulfilling and enlightening experience. I have worked with several coaching clients, am expanding my business virtually and am helping women who are nearing retirement.

Joli Trotto

I spent 36 years of my life feeling purposeless, empty, and unsatisfied with my career choices. For the first time ever, I felt so ready, motivated, and determined to take my health back.

The IAWP has truly been a truly life-changing experience. I have finally found my passion and am so excited to share this with others that I am stepping out of my comfort zone and taking a leap of faith and am starting my own Wellness Coaching business. I can’t thank the IAWP enough for all it has done for me!

Joli Trotto Class of 2021
Heather Dodd 1

Before I found the IAWP, I was very ill due to overworking and spent two years in bed, sleeping for 20 hours a day and not being able to read, stand or walk. It was a journey of despair and fear. After 5 years of relapses I had to give up my job. I realised I could use my knowledge and love of connecting with people as a Wellness Coach..

The IAWP has been amazing in terms of content, people, community and flexibility to work through my training. Finding meaning from my health crisis and drawing on this to help other professional women avoid burnout has been life changing for me!

IMG 1382 1

I have been teaching Yoga/Pilates/Meditation for over 10yrs. RMT work is strenuous and this profession started to take a toll on my body, so I started looking into Wellness Schools.

Being a coach-in-training at the IAWP has been very educational and healing. I have retired from RMT work...and am now a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach. I feel so excited to be able to share and help women going through big changes to manage stress, create clarity and feel self love by confidently moving forward living their life that feels fulfilled.

Jennifer Nocito Class of 2021

It's official!! This is so exciting! What a journey it has been too. I feel like a whole new person after completing this program! Over the course of 3 1/2 months I have learned so much about myself, coaching, and business.

This is an absolutely amazing program! Highly recommend it! When you embark on this journey you will learn a lot...get amazing support and maybe even discover new things about yourself! If you are looking to become a Holistic Wellness Coach, then this is the place to go!

Theven Sabga

Prior to me becoming a IAWP Wellness Coach, my life had many challenges as I was working at a pretty intense level as a physiotherapist, and my husband and my son were faced with health challenges. There was a time that I felt I was juggling many glass balls in the air and when I took a look at myself, I was 30 lbs heavier had borderline diabetes, and stress and overwhelm were taking over. .

Becoming an IAWP Wellness Coach has been a transformational journey . A whole new perspective has dawned. The IAWP community has been so supportive and provided all this information in such a digestible manner. Not only did they give me great tools for a healthy lifestyle, but taught me skills to become an effective coach and so many juicy tidbits on business set up.

Thevendri Sabga Class of 2021
tina mundy 2

From the outside, many think I live a charmed life and I am very blessed in so many ways. But the path to the seemingly perfect life has been filled with failures, knocks to the ground, and reinventions of who I am, where I am headed, and redefining my purpose in life.

I knew in my heart that I needed more than a meal plan, a restrictive diet, or a beach body workout. From the moment I reached out and spoke to the IAWP to inquire about becoming a Wellness Coach I felt a lifeline had been created. Not for one moment did I ever feel alone in my journey towards my certification.

Chantal Audet Facebook LowQuality

Over the last 10 months of going through the training, I learned a lot about myself. I have learned to elevate my wellness practices to meet the stress and demands I faced. I discovered what I want to focus more on and where I can bring the most value to people and organizations.

I gained the courage to move forward, one step at the time, in starting to coach people and start my business. I launched my website, blog and FB page, I secured my first paying client in my niche and delivered my first workshop. I also left my consulting work.
