MEET THE FOUNDERS
Hi, I’m Manoli and I’m a wellness consultant and entrepreneur, certified through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Prior to my coaching experience, I spent four years working as a strategic consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers. During that time, I worked with Fortune 500 insurance companies, developing growth strategies through M&A, divestitures, and strategic planning. As a consultant, a majority of my time was spent on the road, eating out, working 16 hour days, and sleeping in hotels; and that quickly took a toll on my body. By my third year, I gained 15 pounds, had hypothyroidism, chronic tonsillitis, cystitis, and heavy metal toxicity as well as a long list of other auto-immune related conditions.
During my fourth year, I hit rock bottom. After countless visits to both traditional and functional medicine practitioners, I decided to take my health into my own hands. In doing so, I began to understand the power of the human body and its ability to self-heal. My passion soon became my obsession and once I had the chance to heal myself, I quickly began healing others, eventually leading to the genesis of The Living Fuel, where I personally have helped hundreds of people change their lives.
Hi, my name is Nicole and I am also a certified wellness consultant through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. My passion has also stemmed from overcoming my own challenges, from chronic illness to severe food allergies I’ve experienced it all. Everything really came to a head two years ago when I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Weeks leading to my diagnosis, I was suddenly experiencing unexplained symptoms like loss of feeling in my arms and legs, loss of coordination, vertigo, panic attacks, memory loss, and heart palpitations to name a few. I spent a year undergoing extreme treatments and was bedridden for months on end. After doctors and medications failed me time and time again, I discovered the power of alternative medicine and nutrition in healing the body.
As I began regaining control of my mind and body, I made the decision to devote all of my time and energy to helping people avoid the helpless feeling I once felt.
Through my illness, I found clarity in my path and passion for helping others. Along with general health concerns, I specialize in food sensitivities and women’s health. By focusing on nutrition, movement, self-love, and mindset I also help clients gain a healthy and loving relationship with their food and their bodies. Without quick fixes, fad diets, starvation, or yo-yoing. Real, sustainable, and healthy FUELED living.
