Radiating wellness in her every step, certified health coach Leah Bostrom has found her calling. “I help people make changes they will enjoy, so they last,” Bostrom says. “It’s empowering to notice that you’re feeling better and more energized. Then you want to know what else you can do—that’s how the magic happens!” Through her company, Chia Leah (1222 Washington Court, Wilmette), Bostrom runs nutrition workshops and cooking lessons, but her real gift is working with entire families to change their shopping, cooking, exercise and even sleep habits. “I do pantry purifications and take clients to the grocery store,” says Bostrom. “Even though it sounds like a lot, I focus on baby steps and establishing sustainable habits over time.” As the mother of three kids (one with food allergies), Bostrom also understands family dynamics and kid tastes. “Each family is so different. It’s like a puzzle to solve, figuring out what’s going to work for this family’s particular needs.” –LH
