Life Choices, Pregnancy, and Nutrition with Kate Turner of Nordic Naturals

How would your life be different if you had received quality guidance from a mentor prior to choosing your career path? As a college student, Kate was lucky enough to have a great guidance counselor who helped her choose her career path in fitness and nutrition.

Kate Turner is a nutrition specialist with Nordic Naturals, owner of Live Well with Kate, and host of the Naturally Well podcast. She is super knowledgeable in her field and offers wellness coaching that includes a comprehensive nutrition and fitness plan and 24/7 access to Kate's expertise. It was a pleasure chatting with her and I look forward to hearing the news of her baby's birth in a couple of months.

  • What sparked Kate's interest in nutrition and how she chose that education path in college (1:23)
  • Her training experience in Italy and how that caused a shift in her focus (7:28)
  • The importance of not always being in "go-mode" and learning when to take a break to avoid burnout (11:55)
