The Health Coaching Advantage

Our Novis Health coaches integrate with Functional Medicine doctors to execute a unique plan built specifically for you and your health conditions. Health coaches are accountability partners who help you turn big goals into small steps that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely.

True health and wellness comes from a healthy lifestyle encompassing all areas of your life. Health coaches go beyond food and exercise and help you explore and identify barriers so you can work together to formulate a plan for your optimal health.

Novis Health coaches always look at the big picture. Many things contribute to an individual’s health and happiness: food, lifestyle measures, work and home routines, personal relationships, employment satisfaction, emotional and spiritual health. They will help you tie all aspects of your life into your wellness journey.

Lead Health Coach / Office Coordinator

Dillon was introduced to functional medicine out of necessity, when, in 2019 he experienced a life-threatening stroke due to his Type 1 Diabetes being misdiagnosed as vertigo.

Conventional medicine did not provide the care he needed, so he turned to a more natural approach to his health. Since his diagnosis, he has been living a lifestyle of healing and finding answers to sustain lasting change.

Dillon's experience has instilled in him the desire to help others who are experiencing their own health issues. He is committed to continually educating himself so he can help others.

Member Experience Specialist / Health Coach

Erica is a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach with a specialty certification in autoimmune health.

She was diagnosed at 17 with Still's Disease, a rare autoimmune disease that affects the joints and muscles. After 10 years of taking immuno-supressing drugs, she was able to achieve complete remission using the power of nutrition and managing stress and other triggers.

This experience and the years of research into nutrition and the causes of autoimmune diseases, led her to her mission to empower other autoimmune warriors to take their health back by managing their disease through diet and
lifestyle changes.

Mike & Vanessa O'Donnell

Mike and Vanessa started their journey into functional health when their then 7-year-old son became ill.  They were shuffled through the medical system with a revolving door of prescription drugs to wait and see if any of them helped his symptoms.  When they were told their child had Crohn's Disease they knew it was time to make a change.  

After proper testing and addressing the root cause of his illness, their son started to improve drastically.  He is now completely healthy.

Their passion now lies in helping others in the Knoxville community find the answers they have been looking for. They understand the struggle to be heard by doctors.  Their goal is not to hide your symptoms, it is to reverse the root cause.
