Christina Hughes, CWC


A coffee roaster by trade, Christina is a multidisciplinary expert in the fields of health and wellness, with a side of third wave coffee. Holding degrees in Clinical Nutrition and Public Health, Environmental Science, and Classical Music Performance from New York University, Christina is also a Certified Anthropedia Well-Being Coach, a Lagree Fitness Instructor, and a Health Coach in the Balanced Living Program at PALM Health. She is a volunteer through the Anthropedia Foundation’s “Take the Time” Initiative, where she partners with professionals in the field of education (Communities in Schools San Antonio) to provide Well-Being Coaching to staff members experiencing work-related burnout.

Bringing years of experience and an undeniably fresh approach to the table, she currently coaches a diverse group of clients nationwide, from young powerlifters competing nationally seeking to maintain specific body fat percentages and in need of specific macronutrient coaching, to business executives looking to let go of limiting thoughts or increase their ability to express self-transcendence in their lives through Anthropedia’s Know Yourself Series. The thread weaving together Christina’s tapestry of diverse offerings is her overarching goal and unique ability to help individuals grow in awareness of their blockages and take realistic and timely action toward change.

During her time at PALM Health, Christina has worked as a health coach and Navigator, primarily concentrating on PALM’s lifestyle-focused weight loss program, the Balanced Living Program. She currently serves as the Program Coordinator for the Balanced Living Program and the primary nutritionist for the Medical Weight Loss Program, while taking individual coaching clients.

Personally, Christina is passionate about teaching (and taking) group fitness classes, using the TCI as a tool for growing in awareness, wearing vintage clothing, pretty much all things Scandinavian, and the music and culture of the 1970s. She continues her education through food-informed travel, most recently backpacking through Thailand, experiencing urban and rural foodways from Bangkok to a remote Akha village.
