Introducing Katie Titterton

Tell us a bit about your experience in the health and wellness field.
I originally was working in law firms, in a very stressful environment. My gym membership and yoga classes were the only things keeping me sane! So I began to wonder how I could make a career out of health and wellness. I did some research, and decided to quit my job to study full time to become a Certified International Health Coach. I spent a year studying different nutritional theories, human anatomy, coaching methods, and learning from some of the best and brightest minds in wellness. In my time off, I also obtained my 200 Registered Yoga Teacher certification, and began to teach locally at local charities. I even spearheaded the first Goat Yoga program on the island! My experience is very personal, and it is a continuing journey.
What challenges are you looking forward to in the position as Wellness Coordinator?
I think the biggest challenge in wellness and healthy living is consistency, but beyond that is making sure that your goals and mindset are realistic. I want to help people achieve this way of thinking, and help them to make long term sustainable change to their lifestyle. With increased participation with the Zest Wellness app, and contact with me, I hope to achieve this.
How do you see yourself making a difference in this position?
I bring a lot to the table. In my time off I tried everything to see what I was good at, and maybe not so good at. I am very open to trying new things, and I love meeting new people. I am also incredibly passionate about this role and this path; helping people is important work, and to able to do it in this capacity with the Colonial platform is a dream come true!
Do you see health and wellness as a growing field?
Health and wellness has been an established field for quite some time, however it seems to only now be gaining popularity. People are incredibly concerned about their health and well-being, from the way they are feeding themselves, to the way they are exercising. The only problem with the growing popularity is the amount of information available. It is so easy to get lost in it all! And that’s where a program like Zest Wellness comes in. We are completely personalized, and as a Certified International Health Coach, part of my job is to help clients navigate all the information and to find their own truth.
