Sarah Kay Hoffman is a gut researcher, certified health coach, and founder of the online gut health community A Gutsy Girl. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in marketing, English, and mass communications. After years of struggling with her own health issues and considering there must be more to healing than the answers she was given, she went on to study at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a certified health coach. She then began devoting every minute to studying, researching, and practicing all things gut healthy and gut healing. Sarah is the author of The Leaky Gut Meal Plan: 4 Weeks to Detox and Improve Digestive Health (Rockridge Press, 2019), and the 90-day gut healing journal system, Healing Booms from Within, published in 2020. Through her blog, Sarah connects with women worldwide who are dealing with topics like IBS, IBD, and infertility and looking for reasonable approaches for healing. She believes wholeheartedly: Heal your gut. Heal your life. Her mission is to inspire that in others as well.
