Meet April Likins

I’m so glad you’re here! As a nationally certified holistic health coach, I help empower women to optimize their health, reduce their stress levels, stop dieting and start nourishing their bodies from the inside out so they can find the best version of themselves, feel their best inside and out, and regain their health.

Here’s part of my story and why I love what I do…

It all started when my father was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer at 49. Devastated and motivated to help prolong his life, I wanted to understand what factors (besides genetics) could have been to blame. I was burning the candle at both ends and I was also beginning to experience some of my own chronic health issues.

What I found when I set out on this journey was jaw-dropping. I discovered what we put in and on our bodies can have a profound effect on our overall health. As I began to switch to a whole foods lifestyle, started using cleaner beauty products, and focusing on mindfulness, I began to notice significant improvements not only in how I felt but in my entire quality of life.

It’s been a personal journey for me which is why I’m passionate about helping others.

After my father passed away, I became a firm believer that our biggest hardships and heartaches in life can become our biggest passions and catalyst for change. No matter what we go through, there’s always a silver lining, and there can be tremendous healing when we share what we’ve learned with others.

Having dealt with the devastating effects of chronic illnesses myself like Lyme Disease and Endometriosis, I know how powerful it is to have an advocate and health coach on your side, which is why I’m incredibly compassionate toward those suffering from debilitating, chronic illnesses, and those that feel stuck with their health. My greater desire is to share what I’ve learned along the way and to help others to take back their power and regain their lives.

Along with my blog, I am a Nationally Board Certified Health Coach trained at both the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Duke University Integrative Medicine. I’m also a creative at heart, a believer, and a travel lover. I’m truly grateful to do what I love every day and I look forward to sharing the journey with you!

With much love,
