We had the good fortune of connecting with Latoya Ellis, MPH, INHC and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Latoya, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Preventable chronic diseases is the leading cause of death in the United States. Six in ten Americans live with at least one chronic disease, like heart disease and stroke, cancer, or diabetes while infertility and gut issues are on the rise. I started my health coaching business to support people in taking control over their health. My philosophy is; A healthy outside starts from the inside. I am partnering with people to get them “unstuck” by helping them figure what’s keeping them from reaching their health goals.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

I take my health serious and believe everyone else should too. Growing up, I lived where corner stores where a staple and vegetables were only served for dinner.

In high school had an abrupt skin flare up, at that time, was diagnosed as psoriasis, it was awful.It was so novice and in someone who looked like me. I had severe ache the first few years of college and love handles were making an appearance, lol.

I didn’t want to evolve like the status quo.

I started learning many of our bodily ailments start with what’s on our forks, what we are environmentally exposed to and how we cope with life’s stressors.

As a Health Coach I encourage and guide people on how to live “their” life healthier and vibrantly.
Listen. Getting finer in time isn’t just for wine!


The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Shout to my closet friend SJ, for introducing to IIN. It ignited a fire for how I can make an impact on the health of our communities. And a huge shout out to my other half who supports all the abrupt health nut changes I make in our home.
