Our Mission | "SEE"ing A New Way of Living
The Wholistic Picture looks at the picture of your overall wellness, not just nutrition. We are focused on "SEE"ing a new way of eating. "S" meaning self awareness. Self awareness is important because it tunes us into our own bodies and how they each uniquely work. The first "E" is for education. Through nutrition and wellness education, we can learn how our bodies function, how our bodies are affected by different external factors and we can learn how to research and be curious about what is in our foods and how they affect our system. Through self awareness and education comes the last "E", empowerment. Empowerment to make confident decisions and create sustainable habits that work for our unique bodies and lives. Utilizing these three pillars of thought we will create sustainable practices that you can carry with you well beyond our time together.
A bit more about me...
Hi there! I'm Jess Hatheway and I'm so happy you are here.
I am from Pittsburgh, PA born and raised. I grew up with a passion for cooking and baking with my family which led me to pursuing my certifications and degree in Culinary, Pastry Arts and Hospitality Management.
Along my college journey I navigated through a severe battle with anxiety and depression. Through that time I found my passion for fitness and nutrition.
I dove head first into the fitness industry after college and became club manager and fitness instructor at a local fitness boxing club. Along the way I continued my education to include certifications in personal training, nutrition and wellness consulting and holistic nutrition.
I am a firm believer in finding a healthy lifestyle that goes against society's dieting culture, and creating one that works for each individual. Wellness is not one size fits all and my passion lies in helping my clients find what THEIR balanced, happy, most fulfilling life looks like for them.
A few of my other favorite things...
- being a proud cat mom to my two fur babies Jason and Jasper, the most adorable kitties you ever did see
- reading personal development
- binge watching Netflix (FRIENDS, Gilmore Girls, Stranger Things, just to name a few)
- traveling, especially to the ocean to enjoy some scuba diving adventures
- spending time with my amazing family and boyfriend who are all as goofy and silly as I am
- and of course all things FOOD
"The Wholistic Picture program has helped me look at eating and living differently.
After yo-yo dieting for several years, I learned how to make good food choices, manage my stress levels, and create strategies that keep me on track. I have always hated counting calories and maintaining food journals, but by using the strategies in this program, it was easy to stay on track and I never obsessed over the food choices I made. Learning to meal prep and eating more often during the day have also helped me achieve and maintain my goals. The Wholistic Picture truly lives up to the promise to change your whole life." ~Doug M.
"Finally, after many years of switching from one “diet” idea to another, I came up with my brightest idea yet, The Wholistic Picture.
Jess has helped me in so many ways but the most notable is how she’s changed my mindset on dieting, fitness and the overall concept of being healthy and beautiful.
I purchased the three month package because I know myself better than anyone, of course, and I needed accountability for an extended period of time. I knew it would take some time to get my mindset ready to match my appetite and set goals. This program helped me set goals for myself which, Jess explains, goals do not always have to be numbers on a scale. It felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders once I finally wrapped my head around that concept.
The program provides cooking ideas as well as grocery shopping dos and don’ts and ways to save money. I learned to flavor my meals in different ways to mix up the same old same old and keep meals interesting.
Jess also suggests many books and podcasts that are helpful when it comes to self-motivation. I found myself listening to podcasts in the mornings while stuck in rush hour traffic. Now, time flies as I sit in traffic and listen to the boost I need to start my day in a positive light or simply hear new breakfast smoothies to make. They remind me that it’s ok that I shoved my face full of cookies the night before because that’s not the end of the world!
The Wholistic Picture helped me lose a few pounds and a lot of inches, but mostly, it gave me the tools to continue to eat well, exercise and feel great majority of the time. Self-image is something I’ve always struggled with as I’m sure most almost 30 year old women have but I’m feeling much better these days. After three months of working with Jess, I feel confident that if I get off track, I can easily get back on and she’s always there to help motivate me!" ~Alisha G.
"Being an employee of one of the area's largest healthcare providers, we understand in our organization the importance of healthy lifestyles.
Because of this importance, we attempt to lead by example and put together a group of employees from the office to partake in healthy lifestyle challenges augmented with weekly group meetings. As a part of this workshop, I routinely try to bring in subject matter experts to educate the group on various topics such as exercise, the human body, and nutrition. Having worked with Jess as a fitness trainer for several years, and knowing of her culinary background and new business endeavors, I thought she would be a perfect fit to speak to the group. Within minutes of her presentation starting, I realized I was correct as the entire group was very engaged, extremely interested in her healthy cooking options. Her presentation was very interesting, giving healthy ingredient substitutions for the group that made total sense and was very easy to follow, even for individuals with no background. Following her presentation, I was approached by the majority of the group and was told how much each of them learned and enjoyed her discussion. I plan to have her back in the future, and believe that her insight will be helpful moving forward with our fitness and eating habits." ~Doug R.
