MY NAME IS JESSICA
Have you ever been sick and discouraged? Ever hopped onto the internet for solutions only to find yourself swimming in more confusion?
Hi! I’m Jessica. I’ve been where you are and it birthed in me a mission to help you.
That mission – my mission – is education and my hope is for Well Made Wellness to ever serve as your go-to source for clarity, inspiration and encouragement.
Let’s be honest; wellness is work! I’m here to make the work a little more – dare we say – understandable, doable, and hopefully enjoyable.
Will you join me? Allow me to escort you through the longs hallways of deep science and into the Truth: God wants you well!
Inspiring Wellness with a Whole Heart
Having walked an arduous road of my own health-wise, my aim is to share with you how I learned to thrive in my spirit, soul and body!
Connecting the Bible and wellness in ways that make sense is my passion.
I’m an experienced and Certified Health Coach trained in Holistic Nutrition who equips others with knowledge, helping them thrive on their own wellness journey. I love what I do!
Read my blog, follow me on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, and let’s get to know each other!
A LITTLE ABOUT ME…
Second to surrendering my life to Jesus, marrying Robert was the best decision I ever made! Irrefutably, he makes me a better person.
We have the best times together – sipping coffee, geeking out on nutrition, listening to YouTube Bible sermons, shopping at our favorite outdoor town square, exploring all things wellness – our life is good!
Robert is smart and Robert is wise and I love him! He’s degreed in Interior Design and Architecture, and is an incredibly creative professional – a hair designer – who owns Robert Herrera Hair Design. He loves Jesus and me, good design, pastured beef, lifting weights, our cats…and buttery pancakes!
Together, we help people look good and feel good!
After graduating Bible college, I took a hard left turn and earned my B.S./M.S. in Holistic Nutrition – plus a few other certifications – and, so far, have enjoyed over fifteen years of professional experience in the fields of health and wellness.
A Certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Practitioner, ACE Certified Health Coach and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, seasonal member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the Weston A. Price Foundation, my areas of expertise center on the inextricable links between the Bible and wellness.
I’m passionate about helping people!
Educational endeavors proved meaningful, but the ‘school of hard knocks’ will always be my most comprehensive and valuable educator.
Having endured decades of major neurological and gastrointestinal disease, the education I provide others naturally centers around the gut. I believe research supports a well-functioning digestive tract as foundational for my mental health, emotional health and physical health.
Robert and I travelled an unpredictable and transformative journey learning what wholeness means – body, soul, and spirit.
Through heartbreak, major illnesses, and ongoing, consistent recovery, I’ve discovered the fullness of life found solely in Jesus.
Nourishment from traditional foods – among other lifestyle and wellness factors – is a God given asset to health.
I’m excited to share my experiences with you for I truly believe you can be well because God wants you well!
NEMO & PIPER | MY BABIES
Nemo and Piper, our two Somali cats, (translation: fur babies) graciously allow me to live alongside them in our home. You’ll see these sweet peas throughout the blog and may even learn why they thrive on a homemade, raw diet!
Inspiring Wellness with a Whole Heart
Together at Well Made Wellness, you and I will share the immense benefits of real and nourishing food and delicious, doable recipes.
We will study the connections between our spiritual heart and physical health.
We will uncover truths of life lived whole-heartedly throughthe provision of Jesus; the Bread of Life!
We’ll make mistakes, laugh in the kitchen, and share ideas as we explore the world of wellness!
If you’re a novice, no worries.
If you’re an expert, I can’t wait to learn from you.
Either way, I’m glad you’re here!
