“In 2017, I was diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune disease that attacks my kidneys, lungs, skin, and joints. I knew there was a way to heal myself and feel better. Becoming AFPA certified has definitely elevated my life! I have learned an incredible amount of knowledge that I never knew about eating the foods that this wonderful earth has placed for us. I personally can make smarter and informed decisions about my health when visiting the doctors, too, and share with the community to do the same! I personally feel confident to make a difference in someone’s life. I am more credible to provide coaching and support to individuals looking to change their lives to a healthier and happier one.” -Genny Mack AFPA Certified Holistic Nutritionist

My passion for wellness increased after being diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases. The many challenges of my health journey opened my eyes to a health epidemic that’s just not going away. Millions of people are struggling like I was. Many people want to get healthier and have nowhere to turn. Most doctors don’t have the time to walk people through the healing process and the necessary lifestyle changes required to improve health. My certification from AFPA has positively impacted my career. Having the credentials to back up my knowledge helped me start my own business. The certification is especially powerful as there are not many others like it, and having the credentials from AFPA has helped me make my dream a reality.”Amy Lydia Zehren McNally AFPA Certified Holistic Nutritionist

"At a relatively young age, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, Hashimoto's, acid reflux, and generalized anxiety disorder. I knew that I had to go deeper and not just "cover up" my ailments. I decided to pursue education to understand and get to the root cause of my ailments and get my health into my hands.. Now with my career, I am meeting new people, networking, guiding, and connecting with people in the hours that I create for myself! Becoming AFPA certified has opened so many doors for me. I started my own online coaching business, which has always been a dream of mine. This program taught me to implement these strategies with myself first, and now I am able to positively impact and influence others around me."-Meghan VanAuken AFPA Certified Holistic Health Coach
