Susan Tucker, NBC-HWC

Welcome to my health coaching practice Green Beat Life! I'm certified by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching. This certification is founded on best practices and represents the gold standard in the field.

I received my foundational health and wellness coaching certification and training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and additionally trained in culinary nutrition at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. My additional training and expertise include Motivational Interviewing and Stress Management.

In addition to my private practice, I offered health and wellness coaching at Vida Health, a tele-health company, as one of their top providers, for 3 years. Vida brings health coaching and therapy to employees of major corporations, businesses, and health insurance members nationwide.

​I've contributed plant-based tips and healthy lifestyle recommendations to online publications including Prevention, Shondaland, HelloGiggles, VegNews, Women's Health, Stylecaster, EatThis, Not That, and Muscle & Fitness Magazine. I've offered consulting services to beauty and lifestyle companies, including Estee Lauder, and start-up wellness companies.

It is my wish that you find happiness and ease each day as you make progress on your wellness journey!

Becoming Plant-Based

For more than 30 years, I've enjoyed a healthy and balanced plant-based dietary lifestyle. Turning to plants for food and nourishment isn't just crucial for our well-being, it's also vital for the health of our planet. The earth provides us with opportunities to optimize our wellness and healing with plant-based choices.    

I enjoy checking out the new vegan hot spots in my hometown of New York City, and visiting my favorite go-to establishments. When I travel, I love experiencing the growing plant-based cultures and communities around the world. It's happening!

Becoming a Health and Wellness Coach

Years ago, I found myself swept away by corporate culture, and my dietary life was compromised. I mostly ate out or on-the-go under extreme stress. My mood, digestion and energy were greatly compromised. I did some self-study, and became fascinated by the way people eat, observing the problematic habits, behaviors, and challenges both physical and emotional that arise due to lifestyle and food choices. I noticed that most people ate for speed and convenience, not for well-being, due the stressors of life and known behaviors that had become the norm. I believe that it is possible to bring wellness, balance, and mindful eating into our busy lives...and find joy in it. I saw that this is an essential life skill that is more than often, overlooked. Combining my passion for the plant-based approach, I was inspired to pursue health and wellness coaching.
