Stephanie Fee-Maschek

Founder & CEO

In 2015, Stephanie found that the demands and experiences of her career in the wine industry were taking a toll on her health. She began (what started off to be) her weight loss journey and as she moved through various stages of change, she realized that diets had exhausted her confidence and proved to be effective only in the short term.  Moving through the phases of transformation, she realized that there were enormous and endless obstacles presented within the existing structures of diet and weight loss programs. In addition, she realized how endless opinions, advice and labels were overwhelming and confusing her in the process. She began asking herself and others a lot of questions.  She decided that she was going to disengage from labeling the way she ate and focus on tuning into her mind, body and trusted sources in order to find what worked for her.  In the process, her physical body transformed and she discovered the value of releasing the weight of her past experiences.


It became very clear that most women were battling the same obstacles. With that, she became motivated to create the solution. Utilizing her professional coaching skills, developed while working for Strategic Coach, a premier business coaching company for entrepreneurs, she developed the first version of The Nock Life Program.  In 2019, a beta group was formed and that group provided the justificatory basis for the ultimate formation of Nock, LLC in January of 2020.

 

Today, Stephanie’s vision is for every woman to sit down to the table with confidence and discover a life beyond a weight loss goal.

Stephanie is currently pursuing her Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification and will enroll in the Cornell University Critical Thinking Certificate Program in late 2021.  She is an active cohort of The Polk Institute for Social Entrepreneurship and a member of Founders First System.
