What to Expect From A Wellness Coach with The Heart Health Academy


Meeting your health goals can be overwhelming. “Most people in life need some sort of a coach,” said Andrea Atcheson, owner of The Heart Health Academy. “So wellness coaching is just another way of getting people healthy.” 

 As a wellness coach, Atcheson reviews goals, assess client’s needs and identifies the best way to work on both. Her background in cardiology, as a Physicians Assistant, allows her to tailor a client’s coaching based on the medical information she knows.    

Scott Michel, Atcheson’s client, said, “Finding Andrea and what she does, it actually helps me with, not only my diet, but what I should be doing to get back on track and take less medications.”   

Michel has rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease runs in his family. He’s hoping to lose weight with Andrea’s coaching who he describes working with as easy-going and like a friend.
