You can climb mountains, achieve your goals, feel your happiest, and live your best life when you’re Vitalized.
Why Settle for Just Okay? Let’s Vitalize Your Body!
Hi, I’m Jessica Lee Reader. As a child, I grew up with an affinity for nature. It started out with being a Daisy, Brownie, and then a Girl Scout. My family trips were camping and hiking to discover the beauty all around. Throughout the years, I’ve maintained a deep-rooted connection to nature and created a life around hiking, trail running, and gardening.
When I was in my early twenties, I suffered from adrenal fatigue and food sensitivities. I felt so terrible and didn’t understand why. It was hard to make it through some days. Back then there was little research available on these conditions. I went to the library and learned a myriad of strategies to try so I could start feeling better and began to share what I learned with others.
During my early adult years, I grew a practice as a cosmetologist and spoke to my clients about healthy living and beauty from the inside out. Deep down I knew it was time to begin formal training in health sciences.
Naturally, the first step in my professional wellness education was discovering the best foods to fuel my body, improve my digestion, and boost my energy.
My Professional Background
In 2007, I enrolled in a science-based nutrition training program at Nutrition Therapy Institute (NTI). I moved forward to become a Master Nutrition Therapist and Instructor for NTI for over six years. My passion for healthy living and yoga led me to become a Yoga Instructor. To provide an all-encompassing experience, I became an Integrative Health Coach and Nationally Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach.
Throughout the past 15 years, I’ve worked with thousands of individuals and groups. My ongoing passion for well-being fosters an environment where I write about wellness. Currently, I am writing my first book and I can’t wait to share it with you!

An Insider Peek
I live in Greenville, South Carolina with my husband Brandon and our bonded cats Zeus and Athena.
When I’m not working on Vitalized Body you can find me brainstorming ideas for my first book along a river, on a nature trail run, crafting up a healthy meal, or exploring enchanting waterfalls in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I love to meet new people and I’m looking forward to connecting with you.
