Meet Kate Stella
As a graduate of Duke Integrative Medicine's Coaching Certification program and as a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), I have gained deep knowledge of behavioral change theory and integrative health coaching methodology. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to coach a wide range of clients from executives to college students, including full-time parents, brand managers, nurses, and those entering retirement.
I also hold an MBA from the Darden School of Business at The University of Virginia and a BA from Bates College. My previous professional experiences in health care marketing and organizational change management led me to want to find the niche where lifestyle behavior change intersects with health and wellness.
I am deeply passionate about empowering others to leverage their strengths and past experiences to support future change. I am also a strong believer that the most effective, sustainable, and long-lasting positive health outcomes are a result of small, incremental behavioral changes that are backed by effective accountability and support systems. I look forward to partnering with you to help you clarify your vision of how you want things to be, overcome the obstacles that prevent you from living your best life, and maintain your new habits for many years to come.
When I'm not working with my clients, you will find me attempting an inversion in a yoga class, experimenting in the kitchen, doing food photography, eating Japanese food, traveling to a new faraway destination, or exploring the great outdoors with my husband and son.
