Nettye Johnson Sitting on Floor

an energetic ‘sturdy’ girl who enjoys cooking, eating, exploring God’s Word, mind/body exercise, and mid-day naps. 

I’m also a wife, mom, marathoner, fit-foodie, author, podcaster, award-winning speaker/teacher, credentialed health educator, health coach, and self-care strategist.

With over 25 years of experience in corporate, non-profit, and community spaces, I’ve been blessed to lead teams sized from twelve to 1,000, train over 50,000 professionals, and develop wellness programs with national scope and impact. More in bio.

A lifetime learner gifted to teach, my jam is informing and supporting positive change.

I gratefully leverage personal and professional experience, and intensive studies in health, behavior change, leadership, and Christian education to develop and deliver curated science-based, faith-empowered health and wholeness solutions. Programming addressing African-American health disparities, healthy weight maintenance, and coaching to help high-performing women lead and live well are areas of specialty.

Faith. Food. Fitness. Health. Purpose. Productivity.

If you are out of balance, stuck, or have the desire to grow in one or more of these areas and need help, let’s connect. My offerings help close the gap between where you are and where you know in your soul you can and you can and should be.

I’d be honored to support and walk that path alongside you.

Nettye is a master at making healthy eating simple and appealing. Her coaching and enthusiasm inspire me to believe I can do this — even as a busy working mom with limited time to shop or cook, I can serve my family healthier food that tastes great (and that teenagers will actually enjoy).

By implementing the strategies Nettye shares in her Veganish Eating Kit, my family is on our way to eating healthier and feeling better without having to sacrifice time, flavor, or dollars on expensive programs. Highly recommend!

Last year I reached out to Nettye Johnson to create a custom Indie Publishing workshop and resource for an upcoming writer’s retreat. Nettye delivered a project that went far beyond my ask, and that’s what I’ve known Nettye Johnson to be –  a woman that works with the spirit of excellence, and a woman who delivers on her word. I was so grateful to partner with her, and you will be too.

Apple Podcast Review

Steady and Steadfast!


I listened to Nettye Johnson’s first podcast that deals with our desires to start something and the what, when, and why of the process to be able to successfully complete and accomplish our goals. The tips and testimonials Nettye offers and shares with us are realistic, relative, and offer an opportunity for a response in achieving your goals and fulfilling Christ-centered purposes. This podcast is a powerful and instrumental tool needed to help guide and empower individuals to be prayerful, consistent, and steady on our spiritual, professional, and personal journey.

We, at the Garrett A. Morgan Summer Business Institute, were indeed lucky to have received a unique and powerful lesson, from guest speaker, Nettye Johnson. Ms. Johnson connected with our students in a way that inspired our students to reflect on their own eating habits and overall health and make immediate changes. The students decided to learn more about sugar and how it affects the body, resulting in a pledge to eliminate and/or reduce soda intake over the next year. Even though this could be a daunting challenge, the students were determined to live a healthier life as Ms. Johnson’s life example was motivational and inspirational. Her energy and commitment to health and wellness are exemplary. She is an excellent speaker and has the ability to reach students and provide them with key and practical strategies that will help them to bring out the very best within themselves. We highly recommend her to speak to your youth groups and we look forward to having her back as a Youth Empowerment Speaker (YES) for next year’s series.

Nettye Johnson conducted an excellent workshop “Sisters it’s time to Clean our Temple” at our 4th Annual Virtual Women and Girls Health Awareness Conference, on March 5, 2022. We are still receiving texts, emails, and voice calls from women who are overjoyed about the workshop. Statements include, “What a powerful workshop!”, “I learned so much!”,  and “That Sister Nettye knows what she is talking about and she is so professional!”

I look forward to our next opportunity to work together!
