Welcome to Elizabeth Finch Wellness!
Hi, I’m Elizabeth and I’m here to show you how you can achieve more balance and joy in your life by shifting your mindset around wellness away from restriction and stress, and towards healthier daily choices, more nourishment, more self love and mindfully listening to what your body is asking for.
Because living a life of wellness should make you FEEL GOOD – in your body, in your mind and in your soul.
I want to empower you to find more joy in creating the healthy habits that will support you for the long run. Habits like getting into the kitchen to make more of your own healthy and delicious foods, finding ways to move your body that feel good physically and mentally, setting up a solid nighttime routine for more restful and restorative sleep and decreasing your daily stress levels with activities that nourish your nervous system.

I haven’t always had such a balanced mindset around wellness.
I used to have a restrictive relationship with food and it was rooted in guilt and food rules. I believed that every workout had to be grueling. I pushed my body too hard because I didn’t understand how to listen for what my body wanted. My daily choices were not aligned with the information my body was giving me.
Being out of tune with myself led to a period where I overconsumed both food and alcohol. I grew tired of living that way when I realized that it was wrecking me.
I knew I wanted to have a healthier relationship with myself and with food. I craved less controlling and a more balanced, more mindful connection with my body. I longed to feel more EMPOWERED in my wellness journey and I longed to finally let go of the strict food and dieting rules I’d placed on myself in the past.
I wanted to learn how to pay attention to what I needed more of — in mind, body and spirit.
When I enrolled in a Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in 2011, things slowly started to fall into place.
I knew I had to forget everything I knew about dieting and learn how to listen to my own body’s communication around what was best for ME. I knew it was time to focus on nourishing myself.
Elizabeth Finch Wellness is an extension of my own journey
Now, my mission is to change the conversation about health and wellness towards more balance, more mindfulness, more pleasure and more joy. I want to show other women that they too can feel more empowered around their lifestyle and their daily choices, and let go of fear and overwhelm when it comes to eating well and living well. I want to help women learn how to place the focus on nourishing themselves — mind, body and spirit.
A little bit more: I completed my health coach training program at IIN (The Institute for Integrative Nutrition) in 2012 and became a certified yoga teacher in 2018. In addition, I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in marketing from the University of Arkansas. I am a regular monthly guest on KATV’s Good Morning Arkansas and THV11’s The Vine, and I have been featured in The Arkansas 100, Little Rock Soirée Magazine, FIT Arkansas, mindbodygreen, Thrive Global and more.
A few of my favorites: spending time with my college sweetheart and husband of 16 years (!!!) and our two daughters, ages 13 and 11, our pup Scout, hot yoga, long walks outside and really most any kinds of movement, books, quiet time, cooking healthy meals in my kitchen, hot baths, all things gut health and traveling. Not necessarily all at once.
