My Story

Jeannine Swaim is a certified Holistic Wellness Consultant and the owner of tri Embrace, LLC.  She is a true believer in the "food as medicine" principle.  Thanks to her grandmother's wisdom about the benefits of eating real food, she developed a passion for health and wellness at a young age.  When her two year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, Jeannine applied her "food as medicine" background to his diabetes management and enabled her son to thrive despite his chronic illness. This life-altering event was the motivation for Jeannine to pursue a career in health coaching.

She received her holistic health coaching degree from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in 2011. Jeannine is also a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.  Jeannine is also a Reiki 2 Practitioner and sings in a local rock band called, “Ellis Island”. She holds a BA from Providence College and a Masters Degree in Education from Fairfield University.  Jeannine, her husband, two sons and their lovable labrador live in Fairfield, CT. 

Jeannine's wellness consulting practice is focused on helping clients achieve their health goals while educating them about the healing powers of food and the importance of the mind/body connection.  She is dedicated to raising awareness about Type 1 Diabetes and to help others with chronic illnesses experience a healthy and happy lifestyle.

Jeannine is passionate about healthy cooking, practicing yoga, Reiki, and nature.
