the woman behind Land of Wellness
Brandy Bell has always been deeply committed to providing outstanding service. Her professional living has been as an office manager in higher education, where she mentored and trained college students, and as an order management guru and customer support professional for life-saving medical implants. Her college job was in hospitality and an amazing mentor taught her the foundation of her dedicated service mantra: “It’s my pleasure.” It truly is her pleasure to be in service for others.
For many years, she’s been discovering free and affordable self-care practices, learning the self-exploration teachings of the tarot, and making meditation rituals a regular practice. She believes meditation is part of the journey and that it can be practiced a million different ways that includes Narrative Medicine. She completed the Mindfulness Fundamentals course in 2016.
In 2018, she graduated from the Health Coach Institute with over 154 hours of International Coaching Federation (ICF) approved curriculum. This included bringing three (out of two required) practice clients through a 90-day Transformation Program, and six months of skills labs and lectures. Her health-coach training is the perfect parallel to her experience; it has accentuated her skills in deep and active listening, structured and strengthened her tools to help people turn self-care into daily rituals, and formalized ways her calming demeanor can dial down stress.
She completed the AADE Career Path Certificate for Diabetes Education and the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Coach Training and is also a Certified Life Coach. In 2020 she became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and worked for those recovering in a post-op rehabilitation facility. This year, she experienced 51-days as a full-time Hospice Aide, which is work she will always regard as sacred and feels honored to have cared for people during their transitions.
Brandy is currently offering a Narrative Medicine program and Personalized Relaxation Audios. She guides with compassion and deep listening; inspiring and motivating others to connect with their unique goals. She wishes to inspire self-love, empowerment, and curiosity.
