"Healthy Initiative, Transforming the Nation's Health"One City At A Time

Shea Vaughn is the well-known creator of SheaNetics®, a revolutionary wellness and exercise lifestyle practice, and the founder of Healthy Initiative – a non-profit organization that through donations and volunteer contributions champions disease prevention in the U.S. through awareness, education and sustainable solutions.

The visionary behind Healthy Initiative, Shea has devoted her life to helping people break old, negative habits and replace them with healthier choices for a more joyful way of life. While we do hear that lifestyle-related diseases are costing taxpayers billions of dollars each year, we don’t always hear about the staggering personal cost. Adults are dying prematurely and for the first time in history parents will be burying their children – the tragedy of this trend is that it is largely preventable.

Beginning in Chicago, The Healthy Initiative Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation, is a nationwide effort that advocates disease prevention. Their mission is to defeat obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and other lifestyle diseases in children and adults, and they do this by promoting ideas and distributing knowledge and information on wellness, diet, nutrition, fitness and mental and emotional strength. They welcome like-minded organizations for partnering opportunities and Shea believes that with the support of concerned individuals, civic leaders, businesses and medical and wellness professionals, this fight can be won!

To raise awareness, the Foundation is following the success of Vaughn’s own SheaNetics® inspired “Breakthrough” program—which made its mark on the airwaves of ABC’s Windy City LIVE—likewise the first 40 participants in the Healthy Initiative’s signature 90-Day Breakthrough Program will experience her “Breakthrough,” gaining the necessary tools to embrace a healthier lifestyle and hopefully go on to become tomorrow’s community ambassadors for this beneficial cause. This is the only program of its kind to be conducted in conjunction with the Adler School of Psychology of Chicago, GH Training and DexaFit to produce a complete range of supplemental qualitative and quantitative data useful to understand and sustain personal levels of achievement.

With a passion that goes beyond the limits of possibilities, and fueled by an endless positive attitude, Shea and her team of experts inspire others and deliver results by helping to provide an exceptionally healthy Mind, Body and Heart experience to the wellness community they serve.

An international speaker, Shea has been featured on numerous TV programs, including Ellen and The Marilyn Dennis Show. As a health and fitness expert, she appears regularly on Windy City LIVE and The Best Ever You Network.
