MEET WENDI FRANCIS
Where it all started.
As an only child living with a single mother who was struggling with mental illness and alcoholism, I quickly learned that the way to flourish in any environment was to help people with their emotions. I grew up, honing those skills and learned to excel in school.
Pursuing my love of education and satisfying my empathic heart, I decided to go to college to become a psychologist. In my second year I took a nutrition course, and in our textbooks there was one page dedicated to the topic of eating disorders. I was instantly fascinated and felt a deep calling to immerse myself in this work.
I told my professor, Mr. Harris and as the first male to speak confidence into me, he told me “you can do anything you want to do.” That day, I signed up to become a nutrition major and I’ve loved every day of my career path ever since.
A little about me.
I’m an ambitious, passionate professional committed to helping others understand how their relationship with food impacts their relationships with themselves and with others in life. “What we do in our food is congruent with what we do in life.”
I’ve enjoyed many roles in my life: CEO, podcast personality, nutrition therapist, author and coach but my favorite is being a mom of three amazing children.
I love nature, yoga, running, hiking, laughter, the moment the sun begins to set, the space and time when a person figures something out they haven’t known before, good food, good friends and the ocean.
In short, I’m a complex, dynamic person just like you, and I have dedicated my life to helping others overcome emotional eating.
