We had the good fortune of connecting with Charmaine Turner and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Charmaine, what’s the most important thing you’ve done for your children?
As a Wife, Mother of 4, Air Force Veteran, Wellness & Accountability Coach, and MS Warrior, I have experienced so many things in my life. My children have been on this rollercoaster ride of life with me and I pray that they have learned 3 things from me: God first always, live with intention, and never let your circumstances dictate your life.
What should our readers know about your business?
Exalting Wellness Consulting has been several years in the making. I’ve always been that friend and coworker who will fuss about eating junk, push you to drink more water, and grab you to get more steps during the workday. I’m also the person who will wipe tears, pray for, and provide encouragement when those close to me are struggling.
Covid was the catalyst that pushed me to say, “It’s time to take the step!” After seeing how Covid ravaged people of color (especially those with pre-existing conditions), I could no longer put my vision on the backburner. Having overcome high blood pressure, struggling with being overweight, anxiety, and living with chronic migraines, I knew firsthand how challenging it is to get your health on track. Because of my experiences, I am passionate about helping others command control over chronic illness and calm the chaos of life.
I think that education is extremely important, so I pursued and completed my certifications in wellness coaching and holistic nutrition while running another business, working fulltime, being a mother and wife. I’m pretty sure that I will be a lifelong learner, so that I can offer my clients the very best!
I am immensely excited about being able to help people with some of the scariest health issues they’ve experienced and feel blessed to be able to do what I absolutely love! 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?
I’m sending sooo much love to my Mother and my Husband! My Mother raised me to be strong, work hard, and put God first in my life. I owe my work ethic and independence to her. My Husband is my #1 supporter, the one who wipes my tears, and never let’s me down. He listens to all of my business ideas, shares his honest opinion, and let’s the world know that he is on my team no matter what. I love them both!
