I am Lauren Keir
Hey Y'all, I’m a New Orleans girl living in the Nation’s Capital. I moved to the Washington, DC metropolitan area at 19 years old to attend my dream school as a baby Bison. After receiving my B.S. in Human Growth & Development from Howard University, I began my career in education. I earned my masters degree in Counseling Psychology shortly thereafter. Because I come from a family of educators, I sought after more knowledge and applied to Nova Southeastern University in North Miami Beach, Fl where I earned my EdD in Child, Youth & Adolescence with a specialty in Exceptional Children after 10 years of teaching. Like most career-minded individuals, I continued to excel and experience the stressors of everyday life. I began experiencing intractable migraines, blood pressure spikes and my body weight increased to 219lbs without explanation. After changing my lifestyle, conducting some research and ultimately using traditional doctors as a resource, I was well on my way to resolving my health challenge. Upon recommendation of 20+ medications from 6+ specialists and 2-1/2 years later, I was still without answers. I decided on the natural route. At this point, I was 65lbs down (154lbs). After a lot of sleuthing and the right tests, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. My lifestyle was further tweaked as I lost a total of 101lbs and I sent my autoimmune disease into remission in just 8 months. I finally had answers that completely turned my health around, I knew I had the tools and experiences to help other people find their solutions, change habits and live a healthier lifestyle for longevity and improved quality of life. I took things a step further and completed a health and wellness certification coaching program. Upon completion of my program, Lauren Keir Wellness was born. My Metamorphosis coaching program is fully accessible to all and may be done wherever you are located on the globe. Nothing makes me happier than working with a motivated client who is ready for change and positive results. I look forward to working with you on your Metamorphosis to healthier you.
