Prepare for Vitality
The word Vitalize means to give strength and energy to. Your body is designed to be full of vitality and livelihood. When you’re Vitalized, you are at your ideal weight and peak physical, mental, and emotional well-being. You can climb mountains, achieve your goals, and live your best life when you’re Vitalized.
Why settle for okay? Become Vitalized!
I created Vitalized Body as a place to provide inspiration, education, and resources to others seeking vitality.
Hi, I’m Jessica Lee Reader, an Integrative Health Coach, Master Nutrition Therapist, and Yoga Instructor. I’m honored that you’re here and am devoted to your health and vitality.
As a child, I moved frequently with my family for my father’s job. By the age of 17, we had moved to 8 different states. We landed in Colorado prior to my senior year of high school. It was a challenging move to leave the heavily wooded Poconos. My group of friends meditated and swam in the waterfalls of our backyards. Overnight I was surrounded by people who skipped school to go shopping at the malls and eat at food fast joints. Within a short matter of time, I lost my roots and the connection to nature vanished.
I no longer honored my body and it showed up as chronic fatigue, anemia, high triglycerides, and poor digestion. I followed my passion for writing and photography and went to college for a couple of years. My health was poor and my grades reflected that it was time to make a change. It was time to create self-care practices and dive deep into learning about health and nutrition.
Throughout my twenties, I was on a mission to research the keys to vitality. The force was strong in my path of healing. I felt so great I wanted to share my insight with everyone.
My Professional Journey
Over the years, I created a successful practice as a cosmetologist and spoke to clients about healthy living and beauty from the inside out. In 2007, I fell so deeply in love with sharing knowledge with others I knew it was time to dive deeper. I enrolled at Nutrition Therapy Institute to become a Master Nutrition Therapist and eventually went on to become an Instructor there.
Since then, I’ve furthered my studies in the areas of Yoga Instruction and Integrative Health Coaching. I’m a lifelong learner and enjoy learning new modalities to integrate into my practice. I’ve worked with thousands of individuals and groups to facilitate well-being and I’m here to support you.

I live in the Upcountry of South Carolina with my husband Brandon and our kittens Zeus and Athena. 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.
