We had the good fortune of connecting with Sherry Khachatryan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sherry, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Being a nurse for 25 years taught me that medicine is not the best way to be healthy. I saw people get sicker and sicker. The medication lists were getting longer and longer. So I’ve decided to help people prevent disease with natural food and a healthy lifestyle. I started researching holistic nursing; however, I stumbled over to health coaching school. As I was checking the IIN website (Institute For Integrative Nutrition), it felt like love at first sight. It did not take me long to decide that I would train as a health coach, even though I was in my mid-40s and did not plan to start a second career. As a matter of fact, I should have been thankful to have a stable and well-paying job as an immigrant. But, it was not about having a job, it was about doing what’s right for people and about following my heart.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
In Luv-Health we help entrepreneurs and busy professionals improve their minds and emotions as well as their bodies. So that they can reach their full potential and grow their businesses faster.

How we are different – we focus on treating the root cause of physical problems like migraines, high blood pressure, digestive problems. But we put a higher importance on mind and emotions. Often past wounds, traumas, or even daily stress related to the hassle rule our lives. But I learned along the way that when mind and emotions are healthy achieving physical health becomes much easier. The success rate of achieving physical health is much higher when they are emotionally balanced. Also achieving their business goals becomes effortless when we work with the subconscious mind.

When I started my business I was working full time as a nurse in the emergency room. I was taking classes in nursing school for my bachelor’s degree as well as health coaching classes. I went through burn out followed by feeling scared to make moves towards my business. I was stuck for 2 years. But I never gave up! I did not like the thought of making a full out of myself. I always finish what I start. Today I have the priveledges to help other business owners get healthy and be productive because I refused to quit!

I learned that even at the lowest point in your life there is always learning. Always look forward and keep going even when there is no hope of making it.

I love helping other enterprisers be their absolute best. Show up as the star they are. It feels amazing to be invested in their mission as a coach. Together we can change the world.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well, I love the ocean, and I’d defiantly spend a lot of time on the beach, whether it’s a peaceful walk on the boardwalk or relaxing on the sand and sun bathing . I find the ocean cleansing and healing. I also love nature. One of my favorite parks is Holmdel park. Hiking and enjoying the beauty of breathtaking tall trees. Being in nature helps one with openness and honesty besides we get a lot of wisdom from the trees. I also like the Grounds For Sculpture in New Jersey. It’s an outdoor sculpture heaven with a lot of history and beautiful landscape.

I would not miss the chanc to take my friend to New Your City to check out the meusames, see a broadway show and end the day with jazz club.

I would also dedicate one day to cooking delicious healthy food with a mix of Armenian popular dishes. We would have Pomogranate wine and my vegan gluten-free brownies baked by me.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My children – always have been very supportive of what I do. They were the first to know my struggles and wins along my journey.
