Trudy has a longstanding passion for helping people discover, develop, and foster diligence in leadership development, performance improvement, personal development, and wellness promotion. This led to a 15 year career in Leadership Coaching and Consultation, first as a coach at Courageous Leadership, LLC working with Fortune 500 clients, and starting her own company trueAction, LLC., supported with her BA in Psychology from Michigan State University, teaching certification from Indiana Wesleyan University, and prior business experience.
In 2010, Trudy explored new avenues for coaching that dealt in a more holistic approach to clients’ needs. This inspired an interest in Wellness Coaching, for which she received certifications in both wellness coaching and stress management. After the program completions, Trudy joined Optum Health, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group INC, as a Health and Wellness Coach, obtaining additional certifications in Clinical Nutrition and Weight Management, Tobacco Cessation, and completion of Mindfulness Workshop from UCLA. She guided clients on weight, nutrition, exercise, heart health, diabetes, stress, and tobacco cessation for 7+ years.
Due to personal health issues and industry research, she became convinced of the merits of whole food plant-based eating. She completed a certification in Plant-based Nutrition at Cornell University, and used herself as her first WFPB client – letting her story be a testament to others. Her passion for plant-based living and the transformation it can bring to individuals’ lives pushed her to retire from Optum and co-found Greens Fever, where she continues to share how plant-based eating changed her health, body, and life (just in 1 year!), and how others can experience these changes by switching to plant-based nutrition!
