Hi, I’m Ellen Jaworski
I’m a holistic health coach and I help busy professional women put themselves first so they can lose weight, cultivate self-compassion, and feel their best at the office and in their free time.
MY WELLNESS JOURNEY
These days I’m a certified health coach and speaker, and despite a busy schedule, I choose to prioritize my health and happiness. Because of that, feeling energized, relaxed, and productive is my baseline, it’s my way of being!
But it wasn’t always like this. In my former career as an art director for TV shows like American Idol and The Voice, I dedicated my life to my job and the stress completely consumed me.
I was working 12-14 hour work days, 7 days a week, and it
By giving everything I had to my job, I had nothing left for me.
Because of it, I was constantly exhausted, my brain often felt stuck in a cloud of fog, my body ached, I was cranky with my friends and coworkers, and I was quickly gaining weight. The never-ending stress of work fueled my emotional eating compulsion, which only worsened the negative body image I’d wrestled with my entire life. I felt embarrassed and miserable and I had begun hating this job I was trying so hard to succeed in.
On top of that, I didn’t have healthy ways to cope with stress. I’d either eat my feelings in the form of candy,
I wasn’t healthy and I wasn’t happy.
It was then I asked myself, “Is this really who I want to be? Am I truly successful if it’s costing me my health and happiness?”
I realized that I
When I invested in my health and wellness, everything changed. I started setting boundaries, saying no, and leaving work when I was given the chance instead of being a martyr. I began taking care of my body and mind, eating real, whole foods, spending more time in nature hiking and camping (something that brings me such joy), and I began working with a coach to develop healthier stress management strategies. And because of this
Putting myself first changed the way I showed up at work and in my life and that had a powerful ripple effect.
And in fact, I got so good at self care, that I chose my own health and happiness over my 6-figure art directing career, and because of this, everyday I get to help busy women like you put themselves first so they too can feel energized, vibrant, and be the best versions of themselves at work and in life.
THIS TIME CAN BE DIFFERENT
You don’t have to settle for your exhaustion, your unwanted weight, your self-criticism, and the horrible feeling that you’re letting yourself down.
I’m here to eliminate the confusion and overwhelm and provide a safe, judgment-free space where we can partner together to create the right version of healthy for you.
In our work together, you’ll create new healthy eating habits rooted in nutrient dense, real foods, you’ll discover a better balance between work and life, and you’ll build a self-care routine to manage stress in a healthy, compassionate way.
Together, these habits will work in harmony to lay the foundation for safe, healthy weight loss, while building a new normal that will make continuing to look and feel your best easy long after our work together has concluded.
If you’re ready to make yourself a priority, create
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to spend a little time with me. For driven, motivated women like us, asking for help can be the hardest thing, but acknowledging when you can’t do something on your own is not a weakness – it’s a strength.
I look forward to supporting you on your path to health and happiness!

“I’ve lost over 10lbs, have much more energy, am more in tune with my body…”
“Before working with Ellen, I felt like I had no control of my body because of my work schedule. I couldn’t get into any sort of routine because I was always on the road. I felt unhealthy, unmotivated, and lacked a lot of self-love. I didn’t really know what to expect from health coaching, but I was ready to take control of my health, so I dove in with an open mind!– Delphine Z.
At first, the process of transforming my health seemed overwhelming. But Ellen quickly makes you realize that it’s about progress, not perfection, curiosity, over
judgement! She teaches new concepts step by step, which become part of your weekly goals, and before you know it, you’re crushing your goals every week and feeling so empowered. You have to do the work, though. It’s challenging and time consuming, but learning how to prioritize my health is one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned throughout the coaching process.
I am very happy with my results! I’ve lost over 10lbs, have much more energy, am more in tune with my body, and have
a muchgreater awareness around the food I put in my body. I’ve built a routine that stands up to my busy, ever-changing schedule. I have learned to give myself more self-love. I am more confident, more positive, and more motivated than ever to keep going toward the healthiest me possible! Ellen surpassed all of my expectations as a coach. She instantly becomes a close friend you can trust. She is relatable, knowledgeable about every aspect of health and has facts to prove it. She challenges you physically and mentally, and her positive attitude throughout the process makes it so enjoyable.”
“My pain levels have significantly decreased and my mobility has increased…”
I had never struggled with health and diet until– Alex B.
fewyears ago when I hit some roadblocks that severely threw me off my routine of gym time and healthydiet. I was in a place where I no longer enjoyed food, in fact, simply talking about food irritated me. I had also put myself on the back burner when it came to getting in any physical activity. To complicate things even further, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that had me at a high level of chronic pain. I knew I had to do something about my situation.
Contacting Ellen is a decision I will never regret. Through our work together I was able to rehabilitate my relationship with food. It took several sessions but to my
surpriseit happened. I overcame my…. one could say “great distaste” for grocery shopping (as it can be overwhelming). I’ve gained new skills that have helped me reconnect with the feeling of good healthy food nourishing my body. And incorporating light activity back into my hectic schedule has been amazing. As a result of these lifestyle changes, I’ve lost 8 lbs, which is an added bonus because I was not expecting to lose weight.
This brings me to my autoimmune disease. I receive a medication injection every two weeks. Though the injection is supposed to relieve symptoms for a full two weeks, mine was only lasting a week to week and a half before I was in pain again. In the middle of my time with
EllenI noticed my medication was beginning to last the full two weeks! My pain levels have significantly decreased and my mobility has increased. I strongly believe that making these changes in my diet and lifestyle has helped my body process/metabolize the medication better, and I feel much better because of it!
