Diana Marino: Wife; Mother; Entrepreneur; Health Coach

  Wife; Mother; Entrepreneur; Health Coach
    WEPN Founder Maggie Delany, recently had the pleasure of interviewing Entrepreneur and Health Coach, Beauty Consultant, Diana Marino for an exclusive interview.
EPN: Diana, thank you for taking time out of your schedule to join us for this special interview.
Briefly introduce yourself to our audience:

"Firstly, I am a Mom to an amazing 3 year old boy Michael. He is the light in my life and has ignited so much passion in me to get the most out of life! I am married for 7 years to my husband Michael."

EPN: Update us on your latest venture.

"I am a Director for Beautycounter, a Santa Monica,CA based company that is 3 years young! The founder created the company because she wanted to create awareness around ingredients in our personal care and beauty products. This industry is gravely lacking regulation and finally something is being done about it.  Our signature is our Never List which is a compilation of 1500 ingredients that we vow to never use in our products. We believe we have the safest products on the market and the most rigorous testing of ingredients while offering beautiful packaging and high performance, two pillars that are difficult to achieve."

EPN:  What sparked your interest in becoming a Health Coach?

"I have always been curious about the foods we put into our bodies, how it’s grown, and where it comes from. I decided to pursue my passion of healthy living and food education by attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Natural Gourmet Institute. I learned how to support men, women, and children on how to achieve optimal health. This is done primarily by introducing new foods into your diets and helping them to create improved lifestyle choices. A few of the benefits my clients experience are weight loss, higher energy levels, more stable blood sugar, less sugar cravings, reduced stress, and improved night’s sleep. Many people do not realize how much better they will feel when they start eating healthier foods and adopting different, more health-promoting lifestyle choices".

EPN: Where did you receive your training?

"I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. "

EPN: I understand you also have a culinary degree?

"Yes, I attended the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC and received my culinary degree for the Professional Chef’s Training program. AnnMarie Colbin founded the school in 1979. She was ahead of her time in the western world for instilling in her students the connection between food and healing."

EPN: How do you incorporate the knowledge gained from your training in your work with clients as a Health Coach and Beauty Consultant?

"My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. Additionally, I believe that good self care and preventative health is not just about the foods we eat. Our skin is our largest organ. What we put onto our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstream in seconds. It is an accumulation of toxic and harmful ingredients that can potentially make us sick over time. I believe in Beautycounter products so much because I never have to worry that one day these products will make me or my family sick."
