Founder & Wellness Coach
Welcome, my name is Emily Wilkins. I am the founder and health and wellness coach at Shades of Wellness (SoW). A platform for women of color to connect and adopt healthier lifestyles. I am also a wife and a mother to a baby boy.
After being diagnosed with two life-changing autoimmune diseases at an early age, I then experienced the discrimination that many African-Americans and minorities face within the healthcare system. Unfortunately, we are often either unheard or silenced. Specifically, women of color often experience poorer health outcomes than our counterparts, including being three times more likely to die in childbirth. I was inspired by my passion for healthcare, improving the disparities in women of color in it, and making a positive impact in my community to establish this health and wellness platform.
My education background includes over 10 years’ experience in the healthcare field. I earned my degree in Health Systems Management, as well as a graduate certification in Integrative Health and Wellness. I plan to pursue a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) with a focus in Behavioral Health and Community, to allow SoW to further achieve its mission.
I specialize in the following:
Health goal mapping and development
Increasing energy and motivation
My goal as your health coach is to put you in charge of creating a healthier lifestyle by providing with the necessary tools, methods, resources, and supportive relationship that ensures your success.
