Today we’d like to introduce you to LaShanna Leonard.
LaShanna, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My journey through health and wellness has come in stages. I have been a direct product of each scope of my practice; physical fitness, nutrition, holistic treatment, and naturopathic medicine.
Fitness met me as a result of recovering from an Achilles tendon rupture. Through rehab and need to keep my body in shape without activity I relied heavily upon nutrition. As my business grew in fitness and nutrition, I stepped out on the next level of faith and opened a nutrition office in Los Angeles, Ca. Through my business expansion there I dove into holistic treatment and naturopathic medicine. Little did I know, that soon a diagnosis (PCOS and fibroids) would require me to lean on those teachings.
I am where I am today because of my faith, my boldness, support from an intimate circle and my willingness to be patient and trust process.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Absolutely not. Anytime you surrender to a greater plan for your life you had better be prepared to encounter mountains and mudslides.
Struggles have come in various dynamics; as a female African American Practitioner in a field that is dominated by others that don’t look like me, as a Practitioner whose had to be her own patient, as a businesswoman learning to negotiate, communicate and always be five steps ahead and the general challenge of educating western civilization in a medium that has not always been the primary mode of practice when it comes to health.
Thankfully, all of these dynamics build you UP!

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory is a family vacation. We didn’t have a lot of money but my parents would manage to save up every summer and we would drive across the country visiting some of the most awesome places a kid could fathom.
