Work Hard Mom Hard

Mar 21, 2019

Cherice Godard is a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) specializing in weight loss, mindset motivation, and healthy eating. She also coaches others through faith deconstruction, reconstruction, and spiritual transition. Cherice recently discovered this passion because of her lived experience transitioning from Mormonism.  

Cherice spent 15 years in the public health education sector as a consultant before furthering her education to become a Health and Wellness Coach. She left her long-term job to pursue the dream of working for herself in a flexible manner that allows her to support her young family.  The best part of her work is being able to walk alongside her clients and see the changes they make and the empowerment they attain from gaining self-efficacy.

Cherice is a mother of three beautiful daughters, a wife of 16 years, an avid soccer player, and a firm believer in strength training for the body and soul.
