Hello SOTGC community,
I am extremely happy to introduce our newest guest author to SOTGC. I met Christie Lees by posting on the Facebook page of Hera Hub (which is an amazing group for female entrepreneurs) that I was looking for a couple more guest authors for certain categories. I got an email form a lady I had met previously, who introduced me to Christie. A few emails and a phone call later and I was hooked on her positive and calming energy! Below is her bio…and I am looking for her future Saturday morning posts under the category she’ll be taking over called “Wonderful Wellbeing.”
Part coach and part cheerleader (minus the uniform and pom-poms), Christie is happiest when she uses her holistic and integrative approach to empower individuals to create a vibrant state of wellbeing in their lives. As a wellness coach and consultant, Christie has worked with a diverse group of people from around the globe, including those with a wide range of “day-jobs,” such as: celebrities, executives, moms, and even Olympic athletes!
Christie’s career began in the field of Nursing, after completing her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Christie, or “Nurse Christie” as she is often known, went on to practice internationally in many top-ranked hospitals and clinics in the field of oncology (cancer).
With a deep passion for helping individuals heal, she began to sense that there was much more to health and wellbeing than what was being practiced in the traditional medical settings. This led her to the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, where she served as Center Director and Perfect Health Program Director, where key roles included wellness program management/development, wellness coaching, health education, and speaking. She is a Chopra Center certified Vedic Master, specialized in teaching Ayurveda, meditation, and yoga.
A dynamic speaker and educator, Christie has lectured to groups large and small, including Fortune 500 companies. She has even shared the stage at events with keynote speakers such as Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer!
In between travelling, seeking “foodie experiences”, and enjoying her friends and family, she is currently working on launching Modern Wellbeing™, a coaching and consulting company devoted to encouraging the wellbeing of people everywhere and inspiring a more benevolent world.
