Meet Stephanie Atwood
Author, Coach, Nutritionist, Mentor
Who is wellness authority Stephanie Atwood and what is a wellness authority, anyway?
Atwood, who has an MA in Communications, national certifications as a nutritionist, trainer, and coach has been a leader in the health and wellness business for more than 3 decades. As founder of three health oriented companies Atwood defines a “wellness authority” as someone who lives, walks, and talks “whole living”, and knows what she is talking about!
She has lived according to her own rules, except as the universe determines that her own rules will not be the guiding light!
A baby boomer, born in the 50’s this lady has experienced her share of life – the good, the bad, and everything in-between.
Born in the SF Bay Area and raised in rural northern California Atwood grew up in a unique family of biological and adopted brothers and sisters leading to the production of the Academy Award Winning Film Who Are The Debolts?
When her father passed away, Stephanie was 12 years old. Her mother decided to move back to San Francisco. This move gave Atwood the opportunity to experience country living as a kid and city living as a teenager. The perfect life for a young person!
Having climbed several major routes and peaks throughout Asia, Europe, and North America, Stephanie was a pioneer in women’s mountaineering and rock climbing in the 70’s. She is an accomplished climber, and mountain guide with the dubious accomplishment of having climbed Mt. Fuji more than a dozen times!
Mt. Fuji is not technically difficult to climb but I have had the opportunity to climb it in many seasons, solo, and with clients. For me it represents a new beginning and reminder of this amazing world, every time I set foot on the summit.
Not surprisingly, Stephanie’s love of adventure and the outdoors led to her starting an adventure travel company called Guides For All Seasons, an early eco-adventure travel company that focused on trekking in Nepal, hiking in Japan, and rambling through Switzerland, and Austria.
Eventually Atwood moved into local guiding and coaching as a way to stay active and raise four children.
