Hello! My name is Kristen Chapman. I currently live in Maryland. I was born Deaf in a hearing family along with a deaf sibling. I went to mainstream school until I entered Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD) in Washington, DC, then straight to Gallaudet University. I have moved around a few times before settling down here in Maryland near DC. I am honored to present to you how I landed my dream job as a health coach. I decided to become a health coach to keep myself accountable, inspire others to take back their health, and create great relationships and friendships. I have been doing this for over a year now and have learned so much. I wake up each day staying motivated AND helping others to become a better version of themselves. The Habits of Healthy system was launched by Dr. Wayne Andersen a little more than a decade ago. I will briefly cover:
  • Habits of healthy weight management

  • Habits of healthy eating and hydration

  • Habits of healthy motion

  • Habits of healthy sleep

  • Habits of healthy mind

  • Habits of healthy surroundings

I look forward to your Q&A! I will also provide a free health assessment for anyone interested and set individual consultation with no obligations. Look forward! Meet Sonya Rawson:
