About: Carly Ferguson

Hi! I’m Carly, an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, wellness enthusiast and aspiring home cook who is on a continuous journey of learning new ways to live a vibrant and healthy life. I began designing nutritious meal plans for friends and family as a teenager, and knew that a career in health and wellness was my purpose. Although, I had no idea what I was doing back then (shhh… don’t tell my mom!).

As a health coach, it’s my mission to show you simple and realistic ways to incorporate healthier habits into your lifestyle to create sustainable change. I believe that as we begin to fuel our bodies with healthy foods, we will naturally crowd out the unhealthy foods (while still enjoying life’s sweetest treats every now and then!). But being truly healthy extends beyond what’s on our plate, and I hope to inspire you towards healthy, holistic changes!

And so I leave you with some food for thought:

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” –John C. Maxwell
