with Shawna Oliver
October 17, 2019
Shawna, originally hailing from Nova Scotia, grew up as the daughter of a physical education teacher and learned from a young age that exercise is an effective tool in managing stress and weight while providing a sense of confidence and accomplishment. However, Shawna states that exercise is not nearly the entirety of her wellbeing. After earning her nursing degree in 1993, Shawna settled in Bangor, Maine with her husband and four boys. Like many women, Shawna found that achieving balance in both work and home seemed unattainable and at times, life seemed like a never-ending treadmill of obligations, many of which lacked joy.
By happenstance, Shawna was introduced to Health Coaching and was drawn to the positive psychology, mindfulness training, and truly holistic behaviors required to initiate and sustain change. These methods deeply resonated in ways the sick/disease model never have.
Ultimately, Shawna believes that you deserve to be happy and fulfilled, and combines a holistic approach with medical education to provide clients custom doable action plans. The end goal is to help you make lasting and sustainable change that leads to a healthier, happier, and more balanced life.
