Barb B. Herd
Certified Health Coach
With my support, you will learn to make healthier choices for yourself and develop habits that work for YOU, that you can sustain.
I became interested in preventative health care and wellness after the passing of my mom from cancer, and then my first husband from a heart attack, who both died at a young age. I read everything I could get my hands on and started adopting many of the healthy habits that were consistently recommended and scientifically backed. I also became environmentally conscious and chose products that were safer and healthier options for me and my family, as I know that is part of overall wellness. After spending many years in the human resource field, primarily as a corporate trainer, I decided it was time to focus on wellness as a career and way of life. When I discovered the health coaching field, I was immediately intrigued and researched which programs were highly rated. Dr. Sears Wellness Institute was one of those very highly rated coaching programs, so I signed up to become a Certified Health Coach. I am currently finishing certification to be a Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach and am so thankful I decided to do this! I am excited to use the years of education, insights and skills I’ve gained from all of this, to help others on their wellness journey!
I can’t thank Barb enough for her support and guidance. Her warm and gentle-but-firm accountability style was super effective in helping me to identify and actually implement some important goals that made a real difference in my life! She patiently listened, helped me to identify some big, giant blocks that have been standing in my way, and guided me as I worked through them without judgement or shame. I am feeling more in control of my habits and can more easily realize when I’m going “sideways”. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Barb.
