We had the good fortune of connecting with Kirsten Miller and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kirsten, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My goal is to help people achieve better health. For each person that can look a bit different but I love to share my knowledge and see how that impacts others, with healthier nutrition or lifestyle changes. When I left my corporate job and started my nutrition business, I knew that I would not make as much money, but I was missing the feeling that I was contributing to others in a measurable way. My love for nutrition and health inspired me to achieve a masters level nutrition certification and start my business, Nourish2Flourish. My greatest achievements are not measured in dollars but in seeing how my knowledge has helped others to feel better and live healthier lives.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m really proud of how my business has evolved and expanded. I started out with a focus in sports nutrition since I’m an Ironman triathlete and did my thesis on fat adapted fueling for the endurance athlete; but as my practice has organically grown, I’m helping clients with deeper concerns, such as those with thyroid, reproductive and gastrointestinal imbalances. I’ve taken many continuing education courses so that I can support my clients from a holistic viewpoint. What affects one in performance, be it on the race course, in the kitchen or boardroom, also affects other parts of the body.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would start with an early morning run up and down Mt. Falcon. The views are gorgeous and no better way to start the day than with some time in nature. Following that we would head to Nixon’s coffee shop and then hit the South Pearl St. Farmers Market. A casual cruise down the Platte River bike path would take us to Angelos Taverna later that evening. We would savor the charbroiled oysters, dinner and a nice glass of wine while the sun sets over their beautiful patio.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I could not do what I do without the support of my loving husband, Klavs Miller. He has always encouraged me to pursue my passions, even if it meant more responsibility fell on his shoulders. He likes to say that he is helping the man, but I am helping mankind. I’m so fortunate that he is my partner in love, life and my business.
