Wellness coordinators work in a variety of settings to promote healthy work environments and improve the lives of others through exercise and nutrition. They are often employed in health care settings and by colleges and universities to promote healthy living and meet a variety of employee health needs.
Wellness coordinators work primarily indoors to develop diets and health plans for clients and employees, and they are encouraged to stay up-to-date with the latest health facts and findings and inform clients of any major changes in wellness information. They often work with a wide range of people and must be able to communicate well with others to promote a healthy lifestyle.
A bachelor's degree in a health-related field is generally required for this position, and some wellness coordinators may work both indoors and outdoors or with people of all ages depending on the employer. Shifts can also vary by employer and location, but typically take place during regular daytime hours.
