Deborah Johnsen

Our Intentional Lifestyle, LLC
Diabetic Health Coach

Hi! I'm Deborah, a certified holistic health coach, entrepreneur, and self-trained chef.

I motivate and teach wellness without being complicated. I share simple, healthy, delicious recipes, and I write about living authentically. I believe that wellness is a lifestyle and every single one of us has the power to improve our health, achieve our goals, and develop sustainable habits to live a healthy and balanced life!

My Story: One of my daughters was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of four. Although she would need insulin, I also believed that there were other ways that I could support her. This was my "ah-ha" moment and my "Why" for starting Our Intentional Lifestyle. Driven by the desire to help my daughter, I was fortunate to advance my personal knowledge of these matters by becoming a Certified Holistic Health Coach through The Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

I've lived the real-life struggles and have the solutions to help you live your best life! I now understand how nutrient-dense foods, exercise, stress, sleep, and gut health all play an important role in managing blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. I provide you with the tools and support to help you thrive with diabetes. When you prioritize your self-care mentally, physically, and emotionally, you don't have to choose between freedom and good blood sugars.

What started as my personal journey has now evolved into a mission to educate and encourage healthy, mindful living! I work with private clients and have created 3 programs, each tailored to a different concern.

My hope is to inspire you to draw the connection between the lifestyle you live and how you look and feel! I'm all about helping you to live in a place filled with vibrant health and a well-nourished life without taking away all the things you love! When you take action and begin the journey toward becoming your best self, something amazing happens!
