BC-074 Intro To A Coach: Kelly Collins on Living Your Most Vibrant Life with CancerMarch 12, 2020 | Author: Debra Melamed
Kelly Collins is a holistic cancer coach with Beat Cancer, and she is the founder of My Vibe Life. She has a BA in Economics and Political Science from The University of Arizona, and an MBA in Business Administration from Pepperdine University. Through her 25 years in corporate America, Kelly found herself an exhausted road warrior with numerous health challenges. After growing frustrated with the medical community telling her she was fine when she knew she wasn’t, she decided to try naturopathic medicine and acupuncture. Through these things, and after eliminating all inflammatory items from her diet, Kelly not only got her health back, she was vibrant once again. She furthered her education through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and helped her father on his journey with Non-Hodgkin’s CNS lymphoma.
Today she is empowering cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers to take control of their healing path by educating them about wellness and recovery through a lifestyle change that is centered on specific nutrition, supplementation, and certain alternative therapies and modalities. Kelly also believes in focusing on people as a whole – body, mind, and spirit.
