Zach is a certified health coach and has been practicing holistic health counseling and life coaching since 2015. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014 and health coaching certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. After his own health awakening in his early twenties and subsequent major weight loss, Zach decided to devote his career to helping others step into their health, balance and power.
Zach’s continued study and areas of concentration are in human clinical nutrition, functional medicine and the body’s connection to emotional-spiritual health. In private practice, Zach worked for years with clients specializing in eating disorders, body image disorders, obesity and weight management. As a writer, coach, and contributor, he strives to constructively add a unique voice to the dialogue on wellness in hopes of activating a movement of empowered acceptance of our bodies.
As local to Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood, Zach loves working with the community both in his private practice and locally at Deep Roots Natural Medicine. Zach loves cooking, writing, traveling, public speaking, gardening and working out. Ask him about his favorite vegetarian recipes-- he might just show up in your kitchen and start cooking!
