Michael Roesslein, MS, FDN, HLC
One co-founder of Rebel Health Tribe, Michael holds a Masters Degree (MS) in Exercise Science & Health Promotion, is a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, and Certified CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach. He founded Natural Evolution Holistic Health in 2009, and co-founded Rebel Health Tribe in 2014. Michael brings plenty of real-life experience into his practice and work, having faced his own internal struggles and health issues over the last decade. His laid back and honest style have made him a popular speaker, teacher, and guest at conferences, events, and health summits. Michael has also studied under several world-class natural health and functional medicine practitioners – many of whom you will see appearing on Rebel Health Tribe blogs, podcasts, webinars, and interviews! Originally from the Chicago, Illinois area, Michael now lives in San Diego, California and was recently married to his inspirational and beautiful wife, Mira. Together, they have two dogs (Marley and Nica), and a cat (LuLu). Michael has a 16-year-old son (also Michael – but not a junior!), who lives in Illinois but visits them in San Diego often!
Joe Rignola, FDN, HHP
One co-founder of Rebel Health Tribe, Joe is the author of the best-selling books The Definitive Way to Go Gluten Free and Sow: Planting the Seeds for Health, Well-Being, and a Superhero Life. He has also hosted several successful online-based events, such as the Primal Cooking Workshop! Joe battled personal health challenges for much of his life; challenges that included severe digestive issues, blood sugar problems, and depression. This led him to seek standard medications for these ailments, which brought along debilitating side affects, and forced him to seek alternative means for his health. It was through these means that Joe was finally able to take control of his health, and implement a holistic wellness approach that transformed his entire life. With this new life came immense amounts of gratitude. Joe decided to walk away from a successful business venture, and went back to school so that he would be able to teach others how to transform their own lives. Now, as a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, and Writer, he is able to give the gift of a healthier, happier, and more sustainable life to people all around the globe. Some of Joe’s favorite activities include writing, film making, cooking and spending time with his family. His main form of exercise is keeping up and playing with his four-year-old son. Joe lives in the State of New York, 45 minutes outside of Manhattan, with his beautiful and supportive wife, Marissa, their ever-inquisitive son, Mason, and a new addition on the way soon!
