My name is Deneice Scott. I have been teaching special education for the past 15 years working with students with multiple disabilities. I have a bachelor degree in special education and a master degree in teaching leadership. I left education in June to become a Certified Health Coach and work full time building my company, Just Move Right.
Health was not always my passion until the past couple of years. I was a heavy child, teen and young adult and tried many different diets. I would be successful for a short time, but always gained the weight back and then more. As the years past and the weight added on, I developed pain in my knees and back. One day the doctor told me I was pre-diabetic. It was time…..It was time to get serious about me.
I began to look at more and more things on the internet for that “magic pill” that would finally help me lose weight and regain my life back. I discovered Institute of Integrative Nutrition. This program was a way for me to learn about many different approaches and find the best plan for my life. I was so excited that I found my “magic pill”. It was not a quick fix, but a life discovery on how to find balance with my life and regain control of my health.
As I proceeded through school, passion grew inside me. I wanted to tell others what I have learned. I have decided to leave teaching in June to become a Health Coach to fulfill my passion of working with adults and children to improve their health and family life. There are still bumps in the road in my life, but now I am armed with the knowledge and the desire to overcome them. I now want to arm others with that knowledge so they can overcome the challenges in their lives.
Spring of 2012, I started my own company, Just Move Right. I am using my training at Integrative Nutrition in New York City to help others to discover the path of regaining their own health back in a realistic way that fits in the world they live in. I am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Currently, I am currently assisting with workshops on health and exercise and offer individual health and nutrition coaching to adults and children.
