In this episode, Laura sits down with Autumn, co founder of Paleovalley(our first podcast sponsor!) for an awesome discussion about her journey to true health and self care (which included a wold tour with Jennifer Lopez), life as a mama, and what led her to create Paleovalley. We talk about life, self care, nutrition, empowerment, and so so much more.
Autumn Fladmo Smith has been a health enthusiast her entire life. She began her academic career with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in dance from the Unversity of Montana. Upon graduation, Autumn danced professionally while becoming a certified yoga instructor. Hoping to combine her love of dance with her passion for health, Autumn became a celebrity fitness trainer with Tracy Anderson, most notably completing a world tour with Jennifer Lopez.
While working as a fitness trainer, Autumn could see that exercise alone was not enough for many of her clients to achieve the radiant health they worked so hard to achieve. Meanwhile, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and anxiety continued to plague her personal health, starting in adolescence. These frustrations further ignited her passion and interest in the study of holistic nutrition. Through self-guided research, she and her husband, Chas, healed her IBS with the paleo diet. She then studied with the Institute for the Psychology of Eating to become a Certified Eating Psychology Coach and Hawthorn University where she obtained a Masters in Holistic Nutrition.
In 2013, she founded Paleovalley with her husband and brother-in-law. Paleovalley’s mission is to share excellent nutritional information and organic food products with 100 million people worldwide. Autumn’s commitment to health reached new heights last year following the birth of their son, Maverick, and she is currently enrolled in the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Program.
