Mollie Lawniczak, Certified Health Coach
In 2015, I started my own journey to improve my overall health. As a young person, I was an average weight but into my mid 20’s and 30’s my weight increased steadily. My eating habits were over the top between my love of cooking and emotional eating habits, I had gained significant and unhealthy weight. Over two years, I lost 40lbs by healthy eating, exercise, changing habits and my mindset. As I lost weight, I started to talk to a lot of friends and acquaintances about our journeys and I realized how so many of us struggle with how to reach our health goals.
My past professional career as a corporate Learning and Development executive and two years working at a popular weight loss company have led me to become a Certified Health Coach. I am a certified health coach from Dr. Sears Wellness Institute and have successfully completed Nutrition Sciences with Stanford Center for Health.
Good Health and Wellness can mean many things, to me I sum it up as doing things that make me feel my best. I feel my best when I am eating healthy foods that nourish me, doing actives that give me purpose, and moving my body to make me energized and feel strong.
When you work with me, I am here as YOUR coach where you are today. Similar to a coach for a sports team, who encourages and motivates their athlete, I will do the same for you. In a non-judgmental environment, I will guide my clients to achieve their goals, provide trusted science-based information, support with positive encouragement and motivation.
I live with my husband, two children, our cat and dog. Always a California girl at heart, now we live in the Chicago area. I love to cook, read fiction, exercise, and plan trips! Welcome, and I look forward to getting to know you and what makes you feel your best.
No matter where you are on your journey, that's exactly where you need to be. The next road is always ahead.
