about

Jehan is a health coach at Risely Health.

After being diagnosed at age 10, Jehan was blessed to grow up in a positive environment with supportive friends and family- even giving her nighttime injections at sleepovers! Growing up, Jehan and her family actively engaged in fundraising for a cure for diabetes and even met Miss America Nicole Johnson who has T1D.  But like many, she still struggled with the mental load of diabetes, always trying to hide her struggles and put on a happy face for  family and friends when inside, Jehan was suffering.  Jehan carried these feelings into adulthood, until finally opening up about the mental, physical, and emotional toll diabetes had on her, 24 years later. As a mom, she knew she had to prioritize her diabetes if she wanted to take care of her family – especially her husband and daughters who mean everything to her. 

Before coaching, Jehan worked in the corporate world in HR and training. After having her first daughter, Jehan decided to shift to be a stay-at-home-mom. After a while, she knew she wanted to help people with Type 1 diabetes as a career.  After going through Risely’s Group Coaching program, Jehan was inspired to pursue health coaching after her own personal transformation. She is currently working towards her NBHWC.

Jehan’s passions in coaching include, supporting people with diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses, helping fellow moms prioritize their care, and being open and vulnerable with those that love you. 

She currently lives in Pittsburgh with her husband of over 10 years and their two daughters. Outside of coaching, Jehan enjoys learning new skills in the kitchen, live music, staying active, car sing-alongs and eating al fresco. She hopes to learn Arabic with her daughters someday!
