Devon SmithIntegrative Nutrition & Longevity
Devon is a Holistic Health Coach, Registered Yoga Teacher, and Plant-Based Nutrition Educator with an unrelenting passion for helping people to become their happiest and healthiest selves. At a young age, Devon began competitive dancing in all styles ranging from hip hop and jazz to ballet and tap, ultimately finding herself dancing upwards of 25 hours each week on both her competitive dance team and high school’s varsity dance team. Amidst the pressure for perfection prevalent in the dance world, Devon fell victim to disordered eating many times throughout her dance career and eventually had to be hospitalized for Anorexia Nervosa.
However, by college, Devon had broken out of the competitive dance culture and began a quest to find self-care practices that made her feel strong and capable as dance had but also granted her more freedom and less judgement. This search led her to discover her love for yoga, which granted her the power of movement that dance had always promised but also encouraged self-care for the mind and spirit, rather than just for the body. By the young age of 19, Devon had graduated from her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training as a Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, ready to share her passion with others.
Devon graduated summa cum laude from The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Particularly, Devon found interest in the fields of Positive Psychology, the science of happiness, and the Psychology of Behavior Change, a science that allowed her to assist others in becoming their best selves. By the age of 20, Devon had a booked schedule as a Wellness Coach in the Student Wellness Center, coaching other students through weight gain, breakups, time management, fitness, and more. By the age of 22, Devon had graduated from college, completed her schooling and certification in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching, and had earned separate credits as a Plant-Based Nutrition Educator.
Today, Devon takes her long-held passions for mental well-being, the power of movement, and Positive Psychology and combines them with newer found passions for healthy and eco-friendly plant-based eating, natural living, and the science of longevity.
