Lori Bray-Levinsohn, CHHC

Lori Bray-Levinsohn was born and raised in a large family in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Her family had the tradition of all sitting down for dinner together each night, and the meal usually consisted mostly of the typical Midwest diet of meat and potatoes — and, being in Sheboygan County, a lot of hamburger and brat cookouts with fresh corn on the cob from local farmers on summer weekends. She hopes to see that tradition of the family dinner return to homes everywhere. They also lived in a house right on Elkhart Lake, which kept them busy with a lot of outdoor and lake activities.

She moved to the Chicago area and worked as a Flight Attendant for 20 years. Lori stopped flying when she got pregnant with her son at 44 years young. She struggled with earlier pregnancies and miscarriages before having a healthy baby. Due to this, Lori became a stay-at-home mom, content to spend as much time with him as possible. As her son was getting into his double digits, she decided she wanted to do more to help and inspire herself and others.

Lori decided to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach and received her Certificate from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). Through her struggles with pregnancies, she got inspired to help other women navigate their journeys to become healthier and happier and to become parents, as well as guide them in making better choices for themselves and their children’s health. Being an older mom has also made her realize the importance of staying healthy for your family, and she also has a quest to keep kids healthy and centered with all that kids face in today’s world.

At IIN, she studied dietary theories, contemporary health issues and topics, and Eastern and Western nutrition with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. While recognizing each client's bio-individuality, Lori works with people, helping them discover their primary & secondary nutrition choices as they create a healthier lifestyle.

Lori loves getting out and doing activities with her family, especially watching car racing at Road America. She has taken up paddle boarding as a hobby and loves to get out on Elkhart Lake and Lake Michigan whenever she can.
