About the Author

Authentic...vivacious...and passionate... Those are just a few of the words that have been used to describe Jasmynne Shaye. As a child her eyes were filled with wonder and inquisition as she searched for answers to questions that most never thought to ask. Dubbed an old soul at the young age of twelve, Jasmynne always had a heart for others and dreamt of becoming a physician so that she could help heal the hurting. But it was the first nutrition course she took in college that became fuel to the fire that was burning inside her, and it changed her path forever. As a result, she has been a certified Nutritionist and Wellness Coach since 2001. Through her company, Day One Nutrition, she has helped scores of individuals achieve their wellness goals by applying principles that she also uses herself. Even still, it wasn't until she relocated from North Carolina to Los Angeles that she got a glimpse of how far her helping hands could actually reach.

In 2009 she made the bold decision to share her personal story of trial and triumph with the world through her autobiographical one woman show, Stepping On a Few Toes. The show details hurts, pains and dark skeletons in her closet that would bring shame to most. By courageously sharing her secrets, Jasmynne was unintentionally helping audience members fight their personal battles-and win. It was then that she got a better understanding of how important her voice is and the kind of hurt she was put on this earth to heal.

Jasmynne prides herself in walking the walk as she's personally dealt with abuse, depression, lack of confidence, and obesity; and she truly believes everyone has the power to overcome any obstacle thrown at them no matter its size. And that's the Jasmynne Shaye difference. She is a person that has been there, battled demons, and won the war. After a single conversation with her you know she is different and you know she cares. She genuinely enjoys helping her clients tap into the goodness that lies within them as she takes an individual approach to helping them straighten the crooked roads they've been traveling.
