Hi, I’m Shannon Sadoski, owner & operator of Live Unprocessed. Born in southeast Michigan, I spent most of my childhood residing in the Metro-Detroit area before attending college at Central Michigan University, where I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Health Fitness in Preventative and Rehabilitative Programs in 2007. I moved to West Michigan to begin my career as a personal trainer, focused on assisting clients with weight loss, corrective exercise post-injury, and overall health improvement. While working at MVP Athletic club as a top fitness coach and mentor to my peers, I developed a successful running club for all levels, designed many nutrition coaching programs, and volunteered to assist in developing a successful pilot program for improving the health and lifestyle of overweight children.
After working in the mainstream fitness industry for over 5 years, I moved to Boulder, Colorado to complete a certification as a Natural Food Chef at Bauman College. I studied therapeutic nutrition with an emphasis on culinary skills, and applied this knowledge through personal chef work, catering services, small-scale event planning, and product development. Upon completion in 2013, I returned to West Michigan and accepted a position as the education coordinator for the Grand Rapids Downtown Market, in which I developed extensive programming for culinary, wellness, and gardening, as well as a scholarship program for the underserved community. After over 2 years of assisting to develop a strong framework for public, non-profit education at the market, I have followed my heart back to focus solely on vision for Live Unprocessed. I recently married my long-time partner, fitness enthusiast, and recipe taste-tester, Ryan, and we reside in Grand Rapids, MI.
