OUR Core Values
PROVEN & MEASURABLE RESULTS
We are committed to the best possible proven and measurable results for our clients.
NATURAL HUMAN DRIVE
We are driven. Ask any one of us. We are driven every day to reach our own potential, personally and professionally all knowing we are here to help humanity do the same for themselves.
CONTINUAL GROWTH & EVOLUTION
We are each committed to our own continual growth and evolution, on a quest to becoming our best selves and living a life that is in alignment with this. We are committed to balancing the head and the heart in all that we do and moving from the heart for the betterment of ourselves, our clients, the company and our world.
IN SERVICE TO HUMANS WHO SUFFER
We are committed to the service of humanity, driven and committed to helping humans who suffer. Suffering can include habituations of the mind, chronic less-than-desirable emotion and a life lived out of alignment with one’s own values and potential.
UNCONDITIONAL POSITIVE REGARD
We are committed to practicing unconditional positive regard in every interaction in our lives, accepting and respecting others as they are without judgment or evaluation. We are committed, therefore, to constant open communication, authenticity and safe spaces that allow vulnerability in all interactions.
WE ARE NUUARIA
What is Nuuaria? Change-work. When you know what to do to create the change you want in your life but just aren’t doing it…. it sucks.
But you see, we’ve come to understand something, throughout this crazy journey called life… there’s an ENTIRELY easier way to create real change. (It’s so much easier than what you’ve been doing.) Nuuaria education provides the resources, support and
We know that change doesn’t happen until you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired.
We get it because we’ve been there too. You’ll find an unconditional acceptance for who you are right now. From this place, vulnerability is easier and change is possible. The Nuuaria education is REFRESHINGLY REAL.
Nuuaria is change-work by the people for the people. Through the years, we’ve found something unsurprising… humans want to help other humans. Our multi-level education says: (1) Change me. (2) Be the change. (3) Learn to help others change.
We believe experience trumps all. Lifting others up is the only way forward now. (You haven’t tasted this flavor of kool-aid yet 😉 .)
Through the Nuuaria Method® ology, you’ll be supported in your determination to see and live a better way. And when the storms of life hit, you’ll have learned to be the tree amidst the chaos of everyday life. You’ll find what used to ail, no longer steals your peace.
Our coaches responsibility is only one: to serve you (because they were you) and always hold you in unconditional positive regard through your times of stress and confusion. They promise to be the voice of reason, positivity, and possibility. They believe in you even when you cannot believe yet in yourself. They commit to your total health, healing and wellbeing.
And because we get asked a lot, Nuuaria means ‘new air’…
We’ve found there’s an ease and lightness, a newfound sense of freedom, when you live and breathe the Nuuaria education.
It’s kinda like the new air you breathe when you breakthrough your own bullshit.
Join us, okay? You’re not broken and you’re not missing a piece. We know it may feel that way sometimes, but we promise, everything is okay. The Nuuaria Weight Loss Program is where you’ll want to get started.

Founder & Chief Executive Officer
I like flowers. I love the sunshine. I like rocks. I can sit and watch the ocean for hours. I believe meditation is the key to my own personal growth and inner success.
And my heart hurts for humans who suffer…
The kind of suffering that comes from the mind. The self-induced kind. That kind that shows up in addictive behaviors, less-than-desirable emotions and unwanted thought habits, like perfectionism, all-or-nothing thinking, catastrophic thinking and obsessive thoughts that just won’t go away.
Which is why I’ve created Nuuaria, the Nuuaria Method®, to help humans become the director of thier lives, instead of the directed.
Because the peace I have found throughout my journey is an other-worldy, unexplainable peace that is available to everyone and I MUST share this. …And so this is the mission I have chosen for myself this lifetime – to inspire the life that exists beyond fear for all humans. Because I believe world peace begins with inner peace and inner peace is what lies beyond fear. This is my Nuuaria… my new air… a new world reality I see in my mind, hold in my heart and wake up for every day.
Big hugs and love to you, and thank you for arriving here.

Jacquelyn Ikonomov, CHES
Director of Enterprise Sales & Development
I enjoy adventuring to new places, trying new healthy foods, and learning something new that helps me think differently. Change excites me! It lights my fire. Life is an exciting journey with so much to explore and understand. Training your mind to think openly and accept what is to come next without resistance transforms your life into something beautiful.
I hold a BS in Community Health Education and a minor in Nutrition from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse. I filled an internship in Sweden, at Linnaeus University where I taught Health Education Courses and experienced how Swedish culture -or in Maya’s words beliefs- drive their thoughts of “lagom” (not too much, not too little), which drive emotions of peace, which drive physical habits of biking to work and social “fika” (coffee breaks).
Every day, my mission is to lead by example as an energetic motivator to guide people toward a better quality of life. I can’t wait to meet you!
Katerina Diaz, B.S.
Food, love, and laughter are my three favorite things in this world. I believe everyone deserves to enjoy this life we have been given and to live it well. Daily I am learning that healthy living can be simple and doable.
I played volleyball in college and thought I had my health together because I was an athlete. Once I stopped playing, I lost all motivation to exercise and take care of my body. The unhealthy habits I had formed caught up to me and I became unhappy with my appearance. When I finally got sick and tired of being sick and tired, I started learning more about food and its effect on the body. I loved learning about food and health so much I switched majors from education to nutrition.
I received a B.S. in Dietetics from Arizona State University, and I love how my life had changed since my volleyball career ended. I now cook more nutritious meals at home and find ways to exercise that are fun and enjoyable. I stopped weighing myself and started paying attention to how I feel each day.
My goal is to come alongside you and encourage you to be the best you can possibly be. I believe in you.

Since I was a kid, I have been fascinated and driven by the topic of personal development. My own struggle with emotions formed a question in me that I had to know the answer to – how do people overcome adversity and become the best versions of themselves? I even took my first personality test at age 12. I still love learning about the role of the personality, along with the mind, body, emotions, and everything that goes into this human experience. Each day feels like an opportunity for me to learn and understand more about this “whole being” experience that each of us is having. I trust and rely on a daily intake of inspiration to bring me right where I need to be, to know what I need to know, and to share all I can share. As I trust more and learn more, I find myself experiencing greater freedom and less struggle, even in the areas I once thought were impossible. I look forward to helping you and trusting with you in your own search as you watch struggle be replaced by freedom, opportunity, and possibility.
For those who are interested in my professional background: I am a licensed therapist and received my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology in 2008, then spent several years providing mental health services to U.S. military units around the world, and have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
