Join the Collective today
Our sponsor is providing scholarships for college students STEM majors.

We give you lifestyle tools to help you feel better.

Relief from your symptoms is possible. Having the support of a community of like-minded women and coaches makes the journey fun and engaging!

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, we show you where to start.

Our members are women like yourself who are dealing with diagnoses like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, ulcerative colitis, adrenal insufficiency, and hypothyroidism.

Suffering chronic stress, pain, fatigue, anxiety, and illness?

Symptoms don’t need to impact your daily life, career, or relationships.

Better health is about more than just nutrition and exercise.

You need to get to the root of why you are sick to find the motivation to change. 

It IS possible to overcome your pain and fatigue. You can escape the cycle of worsening flare-ups. You don’t have to remain a victim of your diagnosis. You can learn to live each beautiful day of your life to the fullest!

"I’ve gone from feeling hopeless to hopeful."

Before working with a Chronic Wellness Coach, I was in constant pain not even able to get out of bed. I felt like this was going to be my life now (with my future looking bleak). Since going through the coaching program, I’ve been able to take control of my illness and not have it control me– Diane

"I am not alone in this world of chronic illness"

“I benefited from a community of women to connect with. I feel significantly less overwhelmed and that alone is a huge relief for me. The biggest ah-ha moment for me was how important it is that I take care of myself. – Carley

"Talking to a coach about my illness has been empowering."

Before a Chronic Wellness Coach came into my life, I had become extremely isolated. Out of shame, I kept my illness a secret and as it got worse, so did I. I no longer suffer in silence because she has given me the tools to be able to discuss it with my family, friends, and doctors without feeling guilt or shame. – Hattie

Jaime provides health coaching and health education from the perspective of personal experience as she has lived with a serious chronic autoimmune condition since her teens.

In 2013, she began a blog called Gutsy By Nature to chronicle her story and to share recipes for the whole foods that were helping her recover from a life-threatening health crisis and return to an active and full life.

In addition to her direct work with clients, Jaime is also a mentor and educator to other professionals and health care providers who share her passion for nutrition-focused health coaching.

Jesse St. Jean, FNTP, Certified AIP Coach

Working with clients both individually and in group settings, Jesse is the author behind the blog AIPsisterhood.com, where she shares Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) friendly recipes and holistic nutrition tips, as well as writes about life with chronic illness. She has been featured on podcasts such as “Phoenix Helix” and “Emotional Autoimmunity” and her work has been published on a variety of sites including “The Paleo Mom” and “Empowered Sustenance.”

Her mission is to empower all women autoimmune warriors to take control of their health by teaching each woman how to make personalized food choices to heal her body while confidently owning her journey so she can live a vibrant life with chronic illness.

Like many health coaches, Jesse was motivated by her own journey living with autoimmune disease (Ulcerative Colitis) and chronic illness (Chronic Lyme Disease) to pursue her dream career of becoming a health & nutrition coach to personally serve resilient women, helping them reclaim their health and vibrancy.

She is board certified as a Health and Wellness Nurse Coach through the AHNA. After a traumatic birth recovery and falling through the cracks of the conventional healthcare system herself, she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, Celiac disease, Chronic Lyme, POTS and PTSD.

This is where her passion to help others manage the complexities of autoimmune disease or those in search of a diagnosis from a trauma aware perspective, really set fire. Empowering women to find their fierce, advocate for themselves and their families while living an intentional, abundant life despite their diagnosis is her calling.

Ashley lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and three-year-old daughter. She owns her own private coaching practice.
