My name is Roberta Wusu. I'm a Certified Nutrition & Health Coach Who Gets It!
As a Certified Nutrition & Health Coach, I am on a mission to empower you to achieve lasting health and wellness the right way.
Health did not always come very easily to me. There were times in my life that it seemed like I was never going to achieve my own wellness goals, struggling to overcome the challenges that were always getting in my way. There is a long history of health challenges in my family: cancer, digestive issues, blood pressure, and arthritis. I have felt a deep drive to preserve my health, which is why I am so passionate about helping others to claim outstanding health for themselves. Five years ago, I launched my own wellness spa, which turned into a juice bar over time, and I never looked back.
Married for 25 years, I am a proud mother of two sons: one is a graduate of George Washington University and a professional soccer player, and the other is a junior at Princeton University. For seven years, I stayed home to raise my boys, dedicating myself to them completely. It was during this period that my sister fought cancer and my mother fought arthritis, and because of everything that was going on, I started looking into ways that I could take charge of my health, running and working out five or six times per week. I have always championed smart nutrition for my family, and the more that I researched it, the more convinced I became that it was the answer.
When my husband's doctor diagnosed him with hypertension, my husband opted to forego medication and become a vegan instead. This may sound like a bold move to some people, but before long, there was no trace of hypertension in my now-vegan husband's body. That is the power of smart nutrition.
Transitioning back into the workforce, I decided to follow my entrepreneurial urges and launch my own business – a home healthcare agency. Through my agency, I served many people who were dealing with hypertension, diabetes, and cancer, and although each person was unique, I noticed on commonality among them – the standard American diet, full of sugary sodas, fried foods, junk carbs, and meat. There is something to this pattern, I though to myself.
I had earned my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Network, working as a network administrator and analyst before I decided to stay home, but after everything that I had seen at my home healthcare agency, I knew that I had found a new path for myself. I enrolled in school and took on credits toward my Master's in Healthcare, but the course load and my day-to-day work were too much to balance. I shifted again, studying to become, in succession, a Certified Nursing Assistant, an Emergency Medical Technician, an Esthetician, and an Esthetician Instructor. To outsiders looking in, it may have looked like I was jumping around, but I was searching for something, searching for my calling in life.
Returning to my entrepreneurial roots, I opened my own wellness spa, which I transformed into a juicing company and then a juice bar. This was deeply satisfying to me. I saw what a difference I was making in people's lives by putting relaxation and rejuvenation within their reach, and little by little, I shared my thoughts about nutrition as well. Soon after that, people were asking me for my recipes. They wanted to know how I stayed the same size and what I was doing right. I have run my juice bar and shared my smoothie recipes for three years now, and I know that I can do more. I know that I can offer even more effective education to empower people to avoid diseases and live healthier lives.
All my life, I have been teaching. From my days teaching classes at a technical school and to my days teaching at a community college to my days as an esthetician instructor, I have guided others toward knowledge and understanding. This is a forward movement that feels natural to me – that feels right to me.
Today, I am a Certified Nutrition and Health Coach. I feel that this is the perfect role for me. I am combining all my passions and all my skills, helping my clients to navigate their health and wellness journeys to live lives that are happy and productive. I want my clients to feel free!
Throughout my five years as a health and wellness professional, I have served more than 4,000 people, including 500 military clients. My juice brand Gaea Juice has pioneered raw juice cleanses made in small batches out of 100% raw vegetables and fruits, delivering bursts of nutrients, phytonutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants to support the body's fight against diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Now, I am sharing what I know.
