Who is Your Wellness Coach

I, Marie-Annick, is a native of Paris, France. I grew up around gourmet foods and wines. As a French and European Table Tennis Champion, I quickly realized the importance of a healthy lifestyle for optimum performance. Over the years, I acquired numerous educational backgrounds to meet my interests in the sports, culinary, health and wellness industries. Since my teenage years, Buddhist Masters and Coaches have played an important role in my life. Inspired by my life experiences, the knowledge and strength I acquired from those masters and coaches; I made it my mission to make a difference in the life of others. Over the years, I have designed and incremented numerous educational tools to promote wellbeing and healthy lifestyle. Because of my unique abilities to feel, listen, understand, inspire, empower and setting achievable goals with my clients, I have developed an impressive track record of successful stories. I created C.M. Academy, a company I started in 2000, to complement my coaching mission and promote healthy eating.
