Irazema Garcia

Health Coach/Writer

Hello I am Irazema, blogger, coach, and consultant.  I write about the skills and tools needed to have a good relationship with health and wellness – no matter where on the journey someone is on at

My personal philosophy involves looking at health and wellness as a progressive journey, often sprinkled with challenges and obstacles.  Since life is filled with imperfections, why wouldn’t our health journeys be as well?  I believe making changes --  no matter how big or small -- require time, strength, and energy (not to mention compassion).  Sometimes progress occurs in leaps and bounds, other times it appears to happen in a matter of a centimeters, but every change is worth it.  Life is not about striving for perfection, but rather building and shaping progress daily.

A native of Southern California, I call the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area home.  I have a Master's Degree in Health Education with a specialization in Holistic Nutrition.  I love to explore everything the Bay Area has to offer- fantastic hiking trails, bountiful farmers’ markets, and superb restaurants. When I’m not exploring the dirt paths and paved roads, I can be found in the confines of my kitchen nourishing my body, my soul, and my spirit with delectable homemade goodies.  I’m a coach, educator, writer, and confidante to those seeking a realistic approach to wellness.
