My name is Kate Watson. I’m a certified holistic health coach living in San Francisco and I LOVE food. Unfortunately, food didn't always love me.
The beginning of my health journey should have started many years ago when I had my gall bladder removed and struggled with major digestion issues post-surgery. However it really wasn’t until years later when I moved to London and was experiencing some of my worst symptoms that I decided to take action. I realized I needed to start addressing the type of diet I would need to help my digestion and make me truly happy and healthy.
I found my way to the Whole30, which at the time I thought was the destination, but quickly realized was only the beginning. After three rounds of Whole30s and a new passion for nutrition, I realized this was more than just a passion - I wanted this to be my career. I also realized that my current career was not only not fulfilling my passion, it was also contributing to an unhealthy lifestyle. The travel, pace, stress, lack of sleep and anxiety were all contributing to how I was feeling...and I knew I needed to make a big change. So I quit my job in FinTech after being in the industry for more than 8 years and enrolled in a nutrition + health coach certification program.
Unfortunately halfway through my certification, something just wasn't right. I worked with a functional medicine practitioner and discovered I was suffering from adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, high cholesterol and a slew of other vitamin deficiencies. I had cystic acne, low energy and overall just did not feel myself. Come to find out my lack of a gall bladder was throwing off lots of other systems in my body.
While I continue to find the best diet + lifestyle to make me healthy, I am committed to helping others feel empowered to take control of their health and live their best lives. Through my career in Finance and since becoming a Health Coach in San Francisco, I have over five years experience with coaching individuals from a focus on career and professional development to now nutrition and lifestyle.
I am using my passion and knowledge of nutrition coupled with my health coaching certification and experience to help you transform your life and feed your journey <3
