CO-FOUNDER / VISIONARY LEADER
Fiona strives to live a more intentional life by focusing on doing things that light her up and stop saying yes to things out of obligation. One of her biggest lessons has been learning to say No. This doesn’t come naturally so it is always a work in progress for her, but what she has learned through the process is that what she truly loves is bringing people together. This has resulted in a team of people who are all here to help others get to the best versions of themselves. As MANA’s co- founder and visionary leader, Fiona’s role is to guide the overall strategy and keep the MANA center & family running smoothly. She loves being social and has learned that her intuition is her strongest ally in finding the best healers to join the tribe. She loves a challenge and finding creative ways to solve those challenges. When Fiona isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two boys, reading, working out, meditating and dreaming about her next adventure!

HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH
Katie’s journey as a holistic health coach began in my her-20s. Years of her type-A personality, “go-go-go” attitude with multiple simultaneous jobs and hours in the gym every day finally caught up with her. She had always been interested in fitness, but ultimately realized that being truly healthy requires focus on all aspects of your mind and body: nutrition, mental health, sleep, routine self-care, and exercise. A desire to learn more about how to balance all of these aspects of life led her to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she became a Certified Health Coach in 2018. Through that program she recognized her true passion in life: to pass that knowledge on to those around her who are struggling with balancing their own bodies and minds with the non-stop demands of daily life. When she’s not coaching, she enjoys spending time with her husband and planning for their first baby. She also loves playing adult social sports, snowmobiling, yoga, crocheting, and chasing their fur babies around the house.
