Hi, I’m Jessica Lee Reader, a Master Nutrition Therapist, Yoga Teacher, and Well-Being Coach. I’m honored that you’re here and am devoted to your health and vitality.
Over 20 years ago, I began my journey of delving deep into researching the keys to vitality. I’ve spent decades studying holistic nutrition and health. I’m a lifelong learner and continually enjoy taking a wide array of professional training programs to further advance my education and learn new ways to integrate wellness into my practice.
I’ve worked with thousands of individuals and groups to facilitate well-being. My specialties include natural weight loss, digestive health, and optimal well-being via self-care and stress relief techniques.
If you feel like your health is off track, you’re in the right place. I provide education and inspiration to guide you to a calm mind and restored Vitality.
My Professional Journey
In 2007, I enrolled in a Comprehensive Nutrition Training Program at Nutrition Therapy Institute. After 2 years of science-based training, I became a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner and Master Nutrition Therapist. Since then, I’ve furthered my education in the areas of Natural Weight Loss, Functional Medicine, Sports Nutrition, Yoga Instruction, and Ayurvedic Lifestyle.
I’m excited to share that I’m in the process of becoming an Integrative Health Coach with YogaMedCo and will move forward to become a Nationally Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach. My intention is to integrate coaching into my practice by blending movement, mindfulness, and compassion together with health and lifestyle medicine coaching.
I have the honor of working alongside numerous Functional Medicine Doctors and Practitioners, being an Instructor for Nutrition Therapy Institute, and running my own Nutrition and Wellness Practice via Vitalized Body.
A Day in My Life
In May 2021 my husband Brandon and our 15-year-old “kitten” Leela made a cross-country move from Colorado to the Upcountry of South Carolina. As we settle into our new surroundings you can find me brainstorming ideas for my first book along a river, on a nature trail run, crafting up a healthy meal, or exploring enchanting waterfalls in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
