A teacher of yoga and mindfulness since 2004, and a practicing lawyer with a Masters in Public Health, Justine Fanarof’s own experiences as a law student and lawyer have brought her deep awareness of the tragic reality of the prevalence of drug abuse, depression, and suicide in the legal profession, in the corporate world, and in society at-large. Armed with both skills and life experience, Justine serves as a corporate wellness consultant for law firms and other businesses across the country.
An employee wellness program is no longer a far-fetched dream, but a necessary business strategy on multiple levels. As a corporate wellness consultant, Justine devises customized programs and solutions to improve employee engagement and performance, attract and retain top talent, increase job satisfaction, and reduce stress. As employers continue to learn that employee wellness reaches far beyond physical health, Justine takes a holistic approach to employee well-being.
Corporate wellness means more than just providing a discount on gym memberships or bringing in a nutritional coach. To achieve true well-being, businesses need to address emotional, social, mental, and environmental factors as well as physical health issues. And, since every company’s culture and goals are different, the definition of wellness can vary substantially from business to business.
As a wellness consultant, Justine plans and facilitates custom programs for individuals, non-profits, professional associations, businesses, and more that are designed to gain leadership buy-in, as well as increase and encourage employee participation.
To better support the vital roles each individual plays in the proper functioning of society and in the workplace, Justine incorporates holistic practices designed to reduce substance use, mental health distress, as well as to improve the overall well-being and long-term health of employees.
