I'm Lisa A. Smith, plant-based health and business coach. I'm on a mission to extend the healthy life expectancy for people of color via the adaptation of a plant-based lifestyle and a life devoted to radical obedience. In 2016, I launched PHARM TO TABLE™ Plant-Based Coaching Program where we've helped hundreds of individuals to combat chronic health challenges whilst improving their confidence, quality of life and contribution to society.
In 2021, I founded The Plant Protocol™, the first plant-based business accelerator and coaching certification to be founded by a person of color. The primary goal of The Plant Protocol™ is to improve the diversity and access to culturally relevant coaches and subject-matter experts in the plant-based coaching and education sector.
I began my own journey to optimal health in 2012 at 190lbs. I lost over 60lbs and fell in love with fitness, nutrition and personal development. With my new-found confidence, I started my first company in 2015 and my second in 2017. Today I spend the majority of my time speaking, servicing our clients across our three coaching programs and assisting other organizations with developing their coaching curriculum and programming.
"I’m a recent graduate of The Plant Protocol™. It has been an amazing life-changing experience working with Lisa A. Smith and fellow classmates. I’ve learned so much about myself, coaching, and I am completing the program with my own signature program and curriculum to share with my clients to help them succeed with their health goals. I have another certification that I received from another program and all I walked away with is a certificate. I didn’t come away with anything really. Working with Lisa has given me the confidence, tools and skills to run my health coaching practice. Her curated classroom fosters an environment of high-level coaching, education, support, encouragement, and camaraderie. Lisa teaches the importance of investing in yourself and your business and this investment was worth every penny. I highly recommend it to anyone seriously interested in health coaching to enroll in The Plant Protocol™. You won’t be dissatisfied." -Melanie T.
"I am proud to be able to say that I'm certified by Lisa A. Smith's Plant Protocol™ Coaching Certification program. I'm proud not just because of the great education, self-development and tools I received, but also because I am part of the powerful community of coaches she has curated to help achieve the goal of improving the healthy life expectancy of Black people. I'm grateful to already be helping people change their lives, as we all did ourselves, by adopting a whole food plant-based lifestyle. Lisa will bring out the best in you and make you an effective coach who gets results." -Joya W.
