Hi! I’m Kelley!
I am a holistic lifestyle coach, full-time traveler, essential oil educator, and the creator behind The Wholesome Nomad. And I’m so happy the universe has brought you here.
No matter how you ended up here, I am thrilled to have you and so honored that you would take the time to read these words. It is my hope that you find value, inspiration, and connection in this space. I began teaching myself about natural healthcare because of my own health issues, and because I knew there had to be a better way. Knowing that my medical team could only do so much for me, and that there were things that needed to be uncovered, it was clear I had to take ownership over my state of health in order to thrive and to live life on my terms.
I am here to show you that there is a better way.
I have always thought of myself as a healthy person. I enjoy an active lifestyle and have practiced conscious, clean eating most of my life. Which is why it was such a shock when, in 2012, I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis – a rare and serious stomach condition that impacts digestive processes. At the time, my mother was beginning to lose her long battle with cancer, I was working in a job that was draining me on all levels, and my body was literally shutting down. At 87 pounds, and after having exhausted all options with my medical team, I was told that I would be placed on a feeding tube, and to expect to spend upwards of several months per year in hospitals for the rest of my life. How’s that for some, drama huh?
It was then that I decided to take matters into my own hands. Maybe it was denial, or anger, or maybe a sort of rebellion, but I was determined not to let a diagnosis dictate how I lived my life. Though that season of discovery was one of the darkest I can remember, I am forever grateful for the lessons it taught me and for the healing that continues to take place within me today: mind, body, and soul.
When I experienced essential oils for the first time, I knew I had been brought to something profound.
Something that would forever change the way we view healthcare in the world today. I still believe that to be true. Within just a few short months after choosing to take charge of my health issues, I began to recover physically and emotionally.
Since then, I have experienced tremendous shifts in my overall wellness, and now feel called to share my story and help teach others about empowering themselves through natural healthcare. My purpose here is to inspire you to explore the gift of natural medicine in its many forms, and I consider it an honor to play a role in your journey.
Whether you’re here because you’ve already heard lots of people talking about using essential oils and you want to know what all the hype is about, are searching for someone to give you more individualized coaching, or you’re brand new to the world of holistic healthcare – know that I am holding space for you.
I believe that we all have a right to experience health in the fullest sense. I believe that our bodies intuitively know what they need to be well, and that many of us have forgotten how to listen to what those needs may be. I believe healing begins the moment we can re-establish a partnership with our bodies, with the Earth, and with all forms of medicine. I believe that we must change the way our healthcare system works for us, and that that change begins in our homes. Most importantly, I believe that true wellness is within reach for everybody.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve you, and to guide you towards living your super-natural life.
