Nice to have you here! I'm Marija (pronounced Maria) and I am a nutritionist, herbalist and certified health coach. I founded Welnas in order to create a supportive holistic wellness community that provided easy to understand and actionable information. From regular blog posts, to clean beauty products, to online courses, ebooks, corporate events and 1-on-1 consultations, my hope is that Welnas becomes a go-to and trusted resource for your wellness needs.

I have been in the wellness industry for over 15 years. 1 first started out as a yoga and fitness instructor in 2001 while studying math and biology in college. After graduating, I embarked on a marketing career and returned to my science and wellness roots after starting a family. I studied plant based nutrition at Cornell, apprenticed as an herbalist and became a certified health coach (CHC). Now I coach, write, produce content, consult with corporations and develop wellness related products.

My wellness philosophy centers around the notion that everyone is unique and that positivity should be used to drive change. Wellness lies on an achievable spectrum for everyone. You can learn more about working with me to improve your health through coaching here.
