Hello, .


Teen Mentor
About Me

I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach with a certificate in plant-based nutrition from eCornell and the Center for Nutrition Studies.

I help people to apply holistic health practices & develop life skills.

Hi, my name is Karianne Croy, Teen Mentor

I have a passion for giving teens every possible tool to succeed in life, as they truly are the future of our country, of our world, of humanity at large. They are our future innovators, change makers, and world leaders. 

Part of my desire to help teens stems from my own troubled experience of being a teen. While I appreciate my challenges as a teen for shaping me into the strong and determined person I am today, I believe my experience would have been vastly different had I had a mentor or more structured support system. I also have a son who will soon be a teenager, so the challenges and concerns of the age group are top of mind for me.

Before coming to Evergreen, I worked with both HanLing Acupuncture and The Integrative Brain Healing Institute as their nutritionist for 6 years. My role involved working closely with patients that had Parkinson’s Disease.

While I enjoyed working with this population, I realized that so many of our chronic health conditions can be successfully prevented with nutrition and lifestyle practices, and the earlier these are implemented, the better! The foundation of great health starts in childhood. I’d like to help young people take care of their bodies before they have a health crisis, so they can avoid that situation altogether.

I became a holistic health coach after retiring from my career as a firefighter and paramedic due to an injury and chronic health condition. I used nutrition and lifestyle to heal myself, and this experience is what led me to become a health coach. All of my experiences have reinforced the idea that prevention is preferable to treatment, and being proactive is preferable to being reactive.

What I want teens to know:

We must give our teens a foundation that will serve their needs, so that they may go on to serve others.


Taking care of yourself is not selfish. On the contrary, it’s necessary in order to care for others in a sustainable way. And you can’t showcase your unique talents or making meaningful change in the world if you’re ill, exhausted, and/or depleted.


Your relationship with yourself affects every other relationship in your life. It affects how you perceive life. Learn to build the confidence to be your own best friend, your own cheerleader, and your own advocate. If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?

You’re Not Alone

I know as a teen it can feel like no one understands you. We’re here to remind you that you’re not on this journey alone. We’re here with guidance, support, and accountability to help you succeed.
