Meet Carolyn Kim Johnson of CKJHSN in Burbank

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carolyn Kim Johnson.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve always had a keen interest in health and wellness but it wasn’t until a few years ago did I decide to pursue a passion project and create a career out of it. Thinking back, what served as a catalyst for this change was my dad’s diagnosis of gastric cancer. I recall following along to his daunting appointments with various physicians and one thing that stuck with me after leaving each one was how coincidental it was that not one of these physicians spoke about nutrition as a form of treatment.

True, nutrition can only go so far in terms of treatment, but I found it odd how eating ‘clean’ was not mentioned as a way of assisting the process of being partially, if not, completely cured. I then took it upon myself to do my own research. Soon after, I found myself going down a rabbit hole, coming upon and reading up on strangers’ testimonies about their own journey or that of someone he/she knew and how cancer was (for lack of a better word) cured through a no-stress lifestyle, exercise and most importantly a clean eating regime that consisted of whole foods and plants. I knew right then and there that this was what I had been looking for all along.

I took initiative and enrolled myself in a plant-based nutrition certification program. I had the best time learning and teaching others what I was studying along the way that another light bulb went off in my head. I sought to continue my studies and certification journey by enrolling in a wellness coaching program. Now, with the aforementioned certifications under my belt, I currently moonlight as a wellness coach with an emphasis in plant-based nutrition. I strive to lead by example and positively influence those around me (or whoever may be paying attention) to eat clean and live well with content.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In all honesty, I struggled with self-doubt along the way. But never did I question my motives or my purpose. I struggled in the sense of whether I’d be able to pull it all off. Would it be enough? Would people be willing to listen? I’m glad to share that there’s not a doubt in my mind now. I strive to share with others what I’ve learned throughout the years and encourage those around me to live a life that’s based on health and happiness.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about CKJHSN – what should we know?
CKJHSN is a full-service health and wellness brand with an emphasis in healthy living, self-care, and plant-based nutrition. As a wellness coach, I offer a full-range of counseling, support and advisory services to women, men, adolescents and professionals across all industries and age profiles. I deliver personal, one-on-one attention to every client and develop customized programs based on each client’s specific needs, issues and goals. I’m proud to help clients improve their health, achieve their goals and develop sustainable habits for a well-balanced life.

As a bonus, my program not only helps clients achieve optimum health through clean eating, it also consists of an individualized, curated skincare regime based on clean ingredients, for those who are interested in upping their beauty game.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Authenticity. I feel the most important aspect that I can emanate is being true to my ideals and to the purpose behind everything that I am doing. Not only is it imperative that I translate this as something others can relate to, but something that others can perceive themselves embracing and adopting into their own lifestyles.
