Staley Sednaoui has been educating people about health and nutrition since 2009. Her own health crisis in 2006 led her to Dr Mark Hyman at the UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. As Dr Hyman introduced her to the practice of functional medicine, Staley experienced the healing that results from using nutrition as a first line of defense. After years and years of calorie counting and conventional dieting, she now understood that food is, indeed, “information for our cells”. Her healing and learning with Dr Hyman led her to study nutrition and health coaching at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. This was followed by study at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating in Boulder, CO. Staley then went on to receive her Masters of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States in Portland, OR. She is also educated in Reiki, EFT, and meditation. She holds a BA from Vassar College.
Staley’s own struggles with health, weight, and sugar dysregulation help to bring an understanding and empathetic angle to her coaching. She is a good listener and provides accountability as well as practical, smart counsel. Her goal is to teach her clients the underlying foundations of functional nutrition, individualized for each person, so that they are motivated and educated to make changes and, as a result, enjoy long lasting improved health.
