MANDI GARCIA

HEALTH COACH & HUMAN PERFORMANCE SPECIALIST

Educational Background

M.S. Nutrition and Human Performance

B.S. Exercise Physiology

Thanks for visiting!  Allow me to introduce myself. I am a degreed and credentialed Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.  I have built a career in the allied health and corporate wellness industries for the past 20 years. 

 

Currently, I am part of a professional mentorship program in pursuit of obtaining Board Certification through the American Nutrition Association.  This mentorship requires 1,000 hours of clinical experience in a variety of settings and clients.  Completion of this program will allow me to obtain distinction in the state of Florida as a "licensed nutritionist."  But that's not the end for me.  I consider myself a lifelong learner and will always look to accredited educational programs, mentors and self-discovery to continue to evolve in this ever-changing landscape.  

 

On top of my education and experience, I also bring the understanding of living as an athlete, coaching athletes and high-performing professionals and knowing how it feels to be unwell.  For many years, I struggled with autoimmunity without a formal diagnosis for many years.  It made life a chore.  I had no energy or strength to compete, let alone work or carry out normal activities of daily living.  I sought the guidance of many experts in their fields hanging on their every word, but no one really put a plan in place that took into account every aspect of my life.  It was disjointed.  And ultimately, any success achieved was short-lived.

Getting better is the result of multiple dimensions of our lives coming together in harmony.  Let's explore what that means for you and get you back to what you love as the best version of yourself.
