Leah Haggard is a certified Holistic Nutrition Health Coach who works with dancers on integrating nutrition and positive eating practices into a healthy lifestyle. Her practice recognizes that every person is different, providing individualized care centered around core values such as whole foods, balance, and intuitive eating. She grew up training in ballet as well as cooking alongside her family from an early age, which is where her interest in health and wellness began. After high school, Leah trained with the Pacific Northwest Ballet before dancing professionally with ballet companies in Utah, Washington D.C., Memphis, Aspen and Grand Rapids. During this time, she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, and started posting about her food journey as a dancer. Leah went back to school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to further study nutrition from a holistic perspective, and is now working towards her Master's in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. She has combined her knowledge and accreditation in nutrition with her passion and experience in ballet to serve professional dancers, students, and dance organizations. She teaches on topics such as dancer nutrition, relationship with food, body image, and healthy lifestyle habits for dancers and works with dance institutions to promote dancer wellness in the organization.
