Katrina Giuliano Hausmann
Katrina is a Nashville native from Dickson, TN. She married Dr. Hausmann on April of 2017. She received a Master’s in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology from Lipscomb University after completing her B.S. in Exercise Science at Tennessee Tech University. She has over 10 years of experience in the exercise industry and 5 years of personal health coaching experience as well.
At a younger age, she saw her brother struggle with his health due to an autoimmune disease. A long road of medical treatments and procedures provided him with no improvement. It wasn’t until he was introduced to proper nutrition and exercise that he radically healed and transformed his health. Doctors were astonished! Seeing him fully recovered and healed, Katrina became extremely passionate and driven to help others achieve health and healing through nutrition and holistic methods.
When realizing that chiropractic care can help get to the cause of so many diseases people deal with, and how these simple lifestyle changes could have prevented years and years of unnecessary medications and hospitalizations, Katrina decided to dedicate her life to teaching the world about proper nutrition, exercise, chiropractic care, and living a healthy lifestyle. She is excited to share her commitment to health with everyone here at Stronghold, and her compassion and drive makes her a wonderful addition to our team.
