Tamera Lucero, a graduate of the on campus Holistic Nutrition program, shares this about her journey: “Sometimes it is easy to make a healthy choice, and sometimes it is not; I now have a much better understanding of the difference, and I make much healthier choices than I used to. This is a process, and you don’t have to be perfect! That was a life-changer and one of the greatest lessons I learned at SWIHA. I have learned to enjoy a guilt-free love of food and life, and it feels amazing!”
Tamera’s business, My Holistic Adventures, is an adventure-based coaching company which uses Tamara’s passion for the outdoors, healthy foods, and helping others as fuel. “I invite clients to enjoy natural foods in nature, keeping it simple,” Tamara explains. “Clients and friends can join me on a hike, a camping retreat, at a park, or at a farmers’ market for sessions in life coaching, nutrition coaching, and hypnotherapy.”

Kelly St. Claire, a graduate of the online Holistic Nutrition Wellness Practitioner diploma, tells us: “All of the teachers were amazing and supportive. Dr. Kelly Clough pushed me to be excellent in writing my research papers. He was honest, tough and I appreciated the feedback. It helped me develop.”
Today, Kelly is a Health, Beauty & Wellness Coach who focuses on challenges surrounding aging, emotions and body image. “I help people feel confident and beautiful! I found my niche, in a huge way. I’m passionate about helping those who suffered as I had with poor body image and emotional eating. I help people learn about holistic nutrition and my whole approach is to make it fun and enjoyable. It’s a great feeling to be so strong in my purpose!”
