The Nutrition Team

Layci’s own nutrition and fitness journey started 6 years ago, after the birth of her second child.  2 babies in under 2 years left her with 40 lbs to lose and no idea how to do it.  After years of cycling through one fad after another, through trial and error and more error, she finally learned what works. Now she is ready to help other’s find a path to long-term success. 

Layci has always believed in the power of the individual to rise above when surrounded by the right supports and evidence-based methods for success. So much so, in 1997 she pursued a degree in Social Work and has over 18 years of experience using cognitive-behavior change methods with hundreds of individuals and groups that want to change the trajectory of their lives. 

Through Nelson Management Strategies, Layci teaches leaders and executives how to manage teams and lead from the front business and  life.  Her passion for fitness and nutrition,and the important role it plays as part of  a rewarding life, affored her the opportunity to share with our Valley through her regular column in the Yakima Herald Republic, Beyond Fitness.  She is thrilled to have this platform to bring  it all together  to help her Iron + Mortar Family identify, and walk in thier full potential.
