Monica Mayen

Hi, I’m Monica, the founder of Health Wise. I’m a Certified Health Coach and a busy mom. In our society we value being wise when it comes to books and finances, relationships and baseball, it’s time to be wise when it comes to our health!

it’s all about

Lifestyle Exercise Attitude Nutrition*

Along with being a Certified Health Coach I am a credentialed teacher with 15 years of classroom teaching experience. I’ve always had an interest in health and nutrition, but I didn’t always know what healthy eating looked like, nor did I always follow a healthy diet. You see I was raised during the “low-fat craze,” when fat was the enemy and processed foods were A-okay as long as they were low fat or even better, fat free. Several years ago I started seeing a nutritionist and everything changed for me. I was intrigued by all of the wrong information I’d had; there is so much out there that is conflicting and confusing. Well, my nutritionist set me straight and that day my health journey truly began. I am constantly fascinated by how food affects our bodies, and also our minds and moods. In my classroom I saw first hand the affect junk food had on my students’ behavior, emotions, AND learning, so I set out to change it and have made it my goal to help the world be a healthier place one person at a time. I know how challenging it can be to make dietary and lifestyle changes, and while I can’t make it easy, I can make it simple. I can offer you my knowledge and support while you walk your own health journey. Are you ready to improve your health IQ? Wherever you are on your journey, I can move you forward in positive and achievable ways. You’ll set the pace and make all the decisions, and I’ll be there with you, every step. Let’s do this together!

Monica has not only been an amazing health and nutrition coach but a good friend. I’ve known her for 4 years now and she is so knowledgeable about nutrition and gut health. As a family, we wanted to start eating healthier and we also have multiple food allergies in our family and she walked me through the process of making changes to our diet. She encouraged me when it got tough and showed empathy with our food allergies. She is an amazing coach!
