Work Integration Coach, Joshin
Mesha Allen graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Contemporary Arts in 2018 is currently a Joshin coach. Mesha has experience with peer support, advocacy, and wellness coaching as a Fibro Youth Advocate Coordinator with the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America, Inc. She has also worked with the Mental Health Association in New Jersey as a Co-Facilitator of Peer Support Groups and Crisis Counselor for survivors of Hurricane Ida. She also worked as a Support Coordinator with Amazing Strides, an agency that works with people with disabilities to find resources and support for the goals they want to achieve. Her lived experiences with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, adenomyosis, depression, anxiety, and inattentive ADHD, and insomnia drive her to do the work she does today.
Mesha is enrolled in a wellness coach certification training program through Legacy Holistic Health Institute. Soon, she’ll sit for the National Board Certified – Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) and the International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) Professional Certified Coach (PCC) exams.
Mesha facilitates all connections using the Healing Justice framework and guides clients with a well-rounded approach to achieve their goals. She deeply values the Peer model and finds the most transformative guidance from people who have lived with the same or similar challenges. Community care is the plan: empathy and kindness for each other brings us closer, and radically allows us to uplift and heal with each other.
