Connect with Kelly LeVeque
What is your wellness philosophy?
I am passionate about the science of human nutrition and believe that education empowers my clients and myself to live our best balanced lives! Wellness is not perfection. Wellness is when we focus on enriching our life with nourishing foods, fun workouts, relationships and rest—not deprivation and rules.
What brought you into wellness?
I have loved nutrition and human biology since High School and spent the first eight years of my career in cancer and genetics. In 2012, I decided to pursue my post graduate nutrition education and start my consulting business. Finally, at the end of 2015 I took Be Well by Kelly full time.
What does You. We. All. mean to you?
It’s inclusive, collaborative and understanding. We all have the power to create change, do good and come together in love for ourselves, others and our world. You. We. All. reminds us that we are always louder, stronger and better together!
What empowers you?
There is nothing that can empower me more than client success, it’s the tangible change I am making in the world. It’s the empowerment of others that always comes back in a karmic way to recharge my soul. When I give away the deepest love to my clients, I get it back ten fold.
