Kelly Gosse
Wellness Coach

Born and raised in Texas, USA, Kelly is passionate about nutrition. After a long bout with illness, which left her depleted both physically and mentally, Kelly discovered that a well-balanced supplemental nutritional plan was exactly what her body and spirit needed. Ever since, she has been encouraging family and friends to pursue healthier living through such supplemental nutritional plans. Kelly looks forward to sharing tips and ideas, as well as helping guide you to wellness.

When she is not sharing her passion for well-being, Kelly loves to go to the skeet shooting range and do… needlepoint!
