Integrative Wellness: The Whole Person Approach

  •  Season 2, Episode 14

Today host Sandy Webster digs into some deep and fascinating topics with Dr. Jessica Matthews, who has been at the forefront of integrative coaching and transformational behavior change from its very early days. Recently named a fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Jessica developed and steers the Master of Kinesiology degree in Integrative Wellness at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. The degree educates professionals to improve public health through interventions in behavior change, nutrition and physical activity.

An award-winning educator, Jess has developed and implemented graduate degree and professional certificate programs at several colleges. In addition, she has created and currently teaches a variety of graduate courses in areas such as mind-body medicine and behavior change models, methods and theories. In addition, Dr. Matthews was named IDEA’s 2017 Fitness Instructor of the Year Award.

You’ll get a lot of inspiration from her passion, intelligence and optimism for the difference fitness pros and coaches can make in the lives of others.
