New Job

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I have been at my new job for about a month and a half now and I am loving it! I am working as a health coach for a corporate wellness company called Orriant. My coworkers are great and I truly enjoy what I do. Orriant's clients are companies around the United States and the participants that I work with are employees of those companies. Each company sets "company standards" for their employees based on BMI (Body Mass Index), body fat %, cholesterol, glucose, and triglycerides. Each employee who would like to participate in our program takes a health assessment and if they don't meet their company's standard, then they are required to work with a coach. That's where I come in! I provide education and counseling to my participants and help them set and achieve their goals. Since we have clients all over the U.S. (we have clients in every state!), we do all of our coaching on the telephone. Although I--and all of my coworkers--would prefer to coach face-to-face with our participants, this method allows us to reach many more people.

I love the atmosphere at work. Everyone is passionate about health and the office is very "health-friendly." Some of us even sit on a stability ball instead of office chairs! Here is a quick look at the office:


 I feel very blessed to have gotten this job. It is so fun to work for a company that you believe in!
