Megan WellSteps guide

Emma Sackley

I was drawn to the worksite wellness industry because it makes perfect sense to me. We spend the majority of our waking hours at work, so why not make those hours as healthy and enjoyable as possible? I’ve always been passionate about health and well-being, and this field allows me to combine that passion with the workplace. It’s rewarding to help people thrive in an environment where they spend so much of their time.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Wellness from Brigham Young University. I am currently working on my Exercise Physiology certification and hope to get my health coaching certification in the near future.

– Emma’s Wellness Wisdom –

“Always have frozen fruits and vegetables on hand. They are affordable and very convenient on days you need a quick, healthy meal, or when your favorite produce isn’t in season.”

What do you believe is the most important aspect of a successful wellness program for clients?

Simplicity is the most important aspect of a successful wellness program. If users are left confused or overwhelmed, it will feel impossible to be successful. Simplicity allows clients to focus on achieving their wellness goals instead of being frustrated by a complicated program.

What is your favorite WellSteps tool, and why?

I love the leaderboard! Nothing motivates me more than friendly competition.

What do you find most rewarding about your work in the wellness industry?

Supporting people through positive change is inspiring. I find it rewarding to witness client’s journeys towards a healthier lifestyle and know I played even a small role in it.

What do you enjoy most about being a WellSteps Guide?

I love the chance to help people make meaningful changes in their daily habits. It is rewarding and inspiring.

If you could choose one word to describe yourself, what would it be, and why?

Devoted. I’m fiercely loyal as a friend, teammate, family member, and coworker. I believe in giving my all and staying committed to those I care about, both in personal and professional relationships.

What is your go-to healthy meal?

My favorite go-to meal is a sheet pan dinner. I select whatever vegetables I have, my favorites are zucchini, bell pepper, broccoli, and sweet potato. Then I add a protein source, such as chicken sausage or shrimp. I toss the chopped up vegetables and protein with a little bit of olive oil and seasoning and throw it in the oven for 20 minutes. I love that I can use whatever produce or protein I have in the fridge, and only dirty one pan!

How did you get started in your career as a worksite wellness professional?

One of my internships as an undergraduate student was for my university’s worksite wellness program. I loved the experiences I had. I was inspired by great wellness professionals who helped facilitate healthy changes in people’s lives. This led me to pursue a career in worksite wellness.

What are some activities you enjoy outside of work?

Outside of work I stay involved in lacrosse by coaching the local high school team and reffing—it’s a great way to stay connected to the sport I love. Additionally, I have a passion for floral design. I love working with flowers to create beautiful arrangements and bouquets. These interests keep me balanced and fulfilled in my free time.

– Advice for someone looking to improve their overall wellness –

Start with small goals. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of healthy changes we want to make. This leads to discouragement and wanting to quit. Instead break your overall goals up into small, achievable goals and focus on attaining those. Start one at a time and build up. You will feel more motivated, successful, and encouraged this way.
