Hi there! My name is Jessica Krauss and I am your personal health coach. Currently, I work as a school counselor at a middle school in Manhattan. As your health coach, we will work together to address, guide, and support your unique health and wellness goals.
As the oldest child in my family, always looking out for my younger sister and younger cousins, those nurturing, empathetic, and genuine qualities have been embedded in my nature. My passions and focus have always been to blend creativity, health, and working with kids and teens to help them feel their best. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with a strong focus on elementary education, from Muhlenberg College. I then earned my Master’s degree in School Counseling from New York University. Most recently, I have earned my certification to be an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).
Combining my passion for living a healthy lifestyle with helping children, adolescents, and teens, The Little Clementine (TLC) was born. As someone who struggled to find a healthy relationship with food as young girl, who suffered from low self-esteem, tried too many diets, and experienced various health diagnoses related to weight and nutrition, I truly believe the one resource I lacked all that time was a health coach. Someone to tell me that there is absolutely nothing wrong with me; someone to support my goals and provide me with the tools to feel strong, empowered, and beautiful – not the medications to make me feel even more sick and desperate for answers. Someone to tell me what I can eat, rather than what I cannot. After many years of experimenting with food, learning how to cook for myself, finding exercise I love, surrounding myself with a positive, loving, and supportive community of friends and family, I have come to a place where I can truly say I feel at peace.
Now, I want to help YOU find your sense of peace, health, and most importantly – HAPPINESS. Let’s connect so I can show you the tools to take control of living a well-balanced life and become the most confident, best version of you.
