About Me


I’m Kelly Hoogenakker, a holistic health coach, energy healer and mom of two, living in Asheville, NC. I love finding ways to make healthy food that tastes amazing – even to picky kids and picky grown-ups!

My approach honors the journey that is unique to each person, to find their secret recipe for ‘healthy’ and empower them to pursue it. I have been practicing and studying what it takes to recover vitality and resiliency in life through food, lifestyle and mindset, combining the wisdom of ancient healing traditions with the latest discoveries in the scientific community.

My training began at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC, and has continued over the years to include The Bengston Method Energy Healing technique, Environmental Toxin coaching with Lara Adler, functional health at Metabolic Fitness with Dr. Bryan Walsh and Dr. Julie Walsh and herbal medicine with The Herbal Academy.

Kelly founded Fresh Ground Health in 2008 in Chicago and has supported clients all over the US to find their secret recipe for healthy!
