Julie Mitchell - Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach 

            Julie has enjoyed teaching young children for nearly 30 years before choosing to move into a new career in Integrative Nutrition.  Her interest was sparked when she observed the connection of the typical diet of highly processed, artificial foods and increasing chronic health issues, food sensitivities, behavior and learning issues.  She also realized that some of her own health issues were stemming from stress and anxiety caused by the changing public school system.  She now coaches individuals and provides workshops and classes both in Integrative Nutrition and cooking.  She loves working with people to help them make positive changes in their lives and has the pleasure of experiencing her clients successes on a regular basis, whether it is lowering blood sugar, or blood pressure, managing weight, identifying food sensitivities, improving relationships, reducing stress, or simply learning how to slow down and simplify things!

            Julie lives in Wiscasset with her husband, golden retriever and cat in an old farmhouse nestled on a hill overlooking the Sheepscot River.  They have raised 5 grown children and enjoy art, music, cooking and traveling.
