Name: Jia Ni Teo
Occupation: Life Coach, Health Coach, Writer, and Creator of Healthy Happy Abundant
I’m a life and health coach, writer, and creator of Happy Healthy Abundant. My purpose is to inspire, empower, and uplift people to create and live the life of their dreams – a happy, healthy & abundant life!
As a child, I was always an avid dreamer and manifester – always carrying HUGE ambitions and visions of how I wanted to live life in my heart. However, when I was in my teens, I lost touch of this inner guidance and my positive outlook on life.
I turned to outward fulfillment – which led to negative relationship with food, destructive relationships and low self-esteem.
As I journeyed back to my purpose and higher Self, everything shifted dramatically and very quickly. Now, life is an exciting adventure and a miracle every single day.
Through my experience, I am inspired to guide others to do the same – be it through my writing or coaching!
Health is a state where there is happiness, peace and balance in our mind, body, and soul.
Purpose, self-care & self-love. Through past experiences of burning out and fatigue, I know that we cannot be of higher service to others if we are not in our highest state of wellbeing.
Thus, self-care and self-love is an important aspect of our life, and this knowledge and awareness leads me to unplug, enjoy ‘me-time’, and form healthy boundaries where needed.
Lately, SILENCE. I’m really diggin’ reading a book on a comfy couch or out in nature in silence. Silence is extremely healing, and in these moments I feel extremely connected and inspired.
I also love to meditate, journal, do yoga, and take walks and hikes out in nature!
I found a huge pull to health when I had a really bad relationship with food. At that time, I found Kimberly Snyder and Kris Carr. Both of these ladies got me onto the green smoothie (Kim) & green juice (Kris) train.
I love that they walk their talk, and they are always glowing and radiating HEALTH! Adding green drinks into my life my first-step towards health, and it has been life-changing for me.
Where ever I am is a good place to be. In addition, I do love being out in nature as well, so anywhere with lots of trees, sun, or the beach is an ideal place to be!
I’m a huge advocate of healthy, fast and yummy.
I’m currently living in Perth, Western Australia, and some my favourite places to eat at are Manna Wholefoods and The Raw Kitchen – both located in Fremantle! I also recently discovered CNR café in Northbridge, which I adore as well.
I love this question! It’s so exciting to talk about what’s coming up next in life!
I’m opening up my coaching schedule in November so that is going to be hugely exciting. I’ll be creating more content (recipes, videos, and articles) on my website as always!
And I’ll also be collaborating with more like-minded peeps who share the same positive message, and who are looking to spread more love into the world!

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time. My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.
With kindest regards Samantha
I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.
When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.
I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.
Hey Jessica! I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again
I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!
Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.
Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!
I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).
I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud
My fiancé bought your book and we have cooked some of your meals. Amazing! I love your outlook on a healthy lifestyle and your hints and tips with preparing tasty meals are fantastic. Thanks for reviving us to live a healthier lifestyle and get our bodies wedding ready.
I want to empower you to make good choices, every day. I want you to enhance your understanding of health and nutrition. I'm committed to making sure you live the best life. Because you deserve it. Are you ready to start feeling great?
Let me know your email address so I can send you an eBook '7 Days on my plate' - a little gift from me to you!
