Katja Evans, eager to change careers, researched accredited online holistic health education and enrolled at the American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS). In 2020, she earned her Master of Science in Health and Wellness.

Katja graduated from ACHS with honors. Throughout her program, she selected courses that provided a comprehensive overview of an integrative approach to health and wellness. Her studies at ACHS culminated in a Capstone Project that focused on community initiatives and secured grant funding for a local elementary school to implement a Farm to School program. This program will directly impact the school’s nutrition, health curriculum, garden, and local food economy.

“I chose ACHS because I wanted to focus on an integrative approach to health and wellness. The range of classes and online format allowed me to earn a comprehensive education on my schedule. The coursework built my solid foundation of knowledge which led to my new career.” says Katja.
