The Origin of the WellLife Wellness program
Katy discovered her passion for wellness and preventive health as a teenager when she found that exercise improved her mood.
While still a graduate student, she developed the WellLife Employee Wellness Program, a 12-week program for employee health education in a group setting.
In 2014, she opened the doors to WellLife Consulting, LLC offering wellness, weight loss, and workout plans for individuals, teams, and corporate groups.
