We wanted to learn more about Kelsey, so we asked her a few questions.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My unwavering commitment to creating a better future for myself and my clients. I wake up everyday with a deep sense of knowing I was put here for a reason and each day I want to honour that with my fullest intentions.
What would an ideal world look like to you?
A collective community that is united, diverse and accepting where opportunities are abundant for all regardless of your gender, race, financial status and socio-economic background.
How has the dnaPower test helped you and your clients?
It’s been empowering and affirming for both myself and my clients about the beliefs we already carry about our own bodies. Sometimes we forget that we ourselves carry the highest intelligence about our own bodies. dnaPower confirms that inner knowing and empowers us to make choices that serve our greatest good.
Which dnaPower report is your favourite and why?
dietPower is my favourite report because I find that it is the foundation of many of the other reports. When we can zoom in on our diet we can better understand why we are experiencing variations in other areas.
Any fun facts or words of wisdom you’d like to share?
Nobody knows your body better than you do. Take time to listen to it and acknowledge when something doesn’t feel quite right. Have trust and be relentless when it comes to advocating for your health.
Where can we find out more about what you do?
