We had the good fortune of connecting with Nathalie Sessions and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nathalie, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
After enjoying an extraordinary career that began in the media industry, I followed my passion for health and wellness and eventually became credentialed as a Registered Dietitian. When I first went back to school, I started to envision my own business around helping people “fill their cart smart.” I knew at the time that I would pursue entrepreneurship at a later date–to pursue more freedom and creative control–after gaining experience and insight as a practicing wellness dietitian. And, voila! In October 2021, I dusted off the old business plan, updated it (only a little!), and rebranded to fit the times. My original vision remains intact: A world free of chronic illness caused by lifestyle choices. On a mission to Empower, Inspire, Support & Serve individuals in achieving optimal health & wellness so that they experience an abundance of joy & fulfillment in life activities that they value the most.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
In my first year of entrepreneurship so I am (literally) learning and growing every day. It is not easy – it’s one of the most challenging endeavors I’ve experienced – exhilarating + terrifying at times. Yet I know I’m exactly where I need to be. I am most proud of following my passion, not living in fear of the unknown, because my “work” is my life’s purpose. Feel this deep in my soul. I absolutely love teaching and inspiring others about nutrition and wellness. I firmly believe our most precious asset is our health and we have more control that we may realize over protecting it.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Fun! We would focus our activities around the things she and I love most about our hometown of Houston – excellent food (a mix of pescatarian and “gourmet” vegan + some meat for her) representing a variety of cuisines; wine tasting, spa day… And we would likely take a little road trip outside the city limits to a few of our favorite Texas Hill Country towns for “cute” shops, R&R, nature and more culinary adventures, of course!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Oh yes! Blessed with so much support & encouragement that I could never fully capture here! Family–especially my parents and late grandmother who lived a full, amazing life to age 100 (and still inspires me to this day), my husband, my educators and mentors, and close friends …who’ve all been and continue to be vital to my journey.
