Who We Are
We are a team of dedicated certified health coaches, health and wellness professionals, and program facilitators collectively joining forces to fulfill the mission of Start Living LLC.

Barbara Peters, MBA, CEO
Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist,
Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
Barbara and her team provide workplace wellness programs to offices, teams, and departments, as well as health coaching services that exceed client expectations. We make implementing sustainable changes convenient, practical, and rewarding.
Barbara's prior career was in Nonprofit Consulting. She worked with many professionals who sacrificed their health for their careers. She had enough of watching hard-working individuals struggle to cope with lifestyle-related chronic conditions, and die prematurely because they did not know how to adopt a healthy lifestyle. This inspired her to establish a health coaching practice with workplace wellness programs that address the unique challenges of busy professionals.
The mission of Start Living LLC is to help people heal themselves, by adopting lifestyle habits that support their bio-individual needs.
We also believe in supporting local businesses and organizations that strive to improve the health and well-being of others. Barbara currently serves as the Chair of Corporate and Community Relations for the National Association of Women Business Owners of Alabama, as well as a Board Member for Feeding the Gulf Coast.
