Hi! I’m Shaline. I changed the name of my blog to San Diego Asian Mom because it covers everything that is part of my life. I am a Holistic Nutrition Consultant and Lifestyle Coach, Essential Oils Educator, and Author. And I have a full-time job in residential property management and I am a licensed real estate salesperson! I am a guest blogger for Abundant Health blog.
I wrote for http://www.examiner.com as their Santa Ana Digestive Health Examiner at http://www.examiner.com/digestive-health-in-santa-ana/shaline-miller, and I was a featured health blogger for www.modernmom.com and have been featured in http://www.mommieagain.com/2012/10/lifestyle-and-nutrition-coach-shaline.html.
My mission and passion is to create a ripple effect by helping others who have health issues learn to create a health and happy lifestyle for themselves and to help them realize that they are not alone.
Being healthy is not a diet, it is a LIFESTYLE! Food is medicine!
My background and how I became a Holistic Nutrition Consultant and Lifestyle Coach
I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a major in Human Resources Management from California State University Long Beach. I worked in aerospace for seven years then become a stay-at-home mom for 15 years. I divorced after 16 years of marriage and re-entered the work force. I worked temporary jobs before landing a position as an Assistant Property Manager. I worked in commercial real estate/property management for three years before becoming one of the “unemployed” statistics. This led me to pursue my passion: nutrition and helping people get healthy as well as myself. It is my health issues with acid reflux that led me to study holistic nutrition and become a Health Coach. I took several acid reflux medications but found that none of them alleviated my acid reflux. One day, I decided that I needed to stop taking the medication and make some changes. I naturally alleviated my acid reflux symptoms by changing my diet and making lifestyle changes.
I received my Professional Nutrition, Diet, and Health Certificate from Ashworth College and am a member of the International Honor Society Delta Epsilon Tau having graduated with honors. I received my training as a health coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “road map to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. We are all different and there is no one size fits all!
The purpose of my blog is to help others by sharing nutrition, meal planning , and self care tips and if along the way it helps someone then I have accomplished my goal!
My hobbies are reading, learning more about nutrition, crafts i.e. rubber stamping and scrapbooking, and traveling.
To your health and happiness,
