At ELANZA Wellness, we put emotional health at the center of fertility, family building, and reproductive health. To ensure that people get the support they need throughout any type of fertility and family-building journey, we’re building a behavioral health coaching platform with 1-1 coaching from National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coaches alongside personalized digital workshops and tools.
Since COVID-19, the need for emotional support throughout the fertility journey has never been more important. We believe the answer is to provide high-touch support in a way that is inclusive and accessible. To accomplish this, our platform highlights the best attributes of one-to-one care from National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coaches, and uses technology and personalized content to expand past the boundaries of a single session. By providing people with a single source for fertility and family-building wellness, we can empower people to create their fullest life with intention.
We are accepting applications on a rolling basis to build a team of coaches that not only represents the diversity of the society we live in, but that also have lived experience as and/or coaching experience with LGBTQIA+ people, Disabled people, Black and Indigenous people, and People of Color in their fertility and family building journeys. We encourage BIPOC, Disabled, and LGBTQIA+ candidates to apply for this role so that together we can build a coaching offering where we each find ourselves represented and supported.
We’re female-founded, venture-funded, and have recently graduated from Techstars NYC, the world’s preeminent startup accelerator. In order to become the number one digital destination for anyone facing confusion around their reproductive health and fertility journey, we’re building an ambitious team of coaching leaders that are truly passionate about what they do.
Our innovation-driven, fast-paced environment requires you to be adaptable, flexible, and collaborative as we build and grow. Our culture is extremely supportive, passionate, and committed to our mission. We take a dynamic approach to learning and we are constantly striving to improve our quality of care.
ELANZA Wellness is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. In fact, we are confident that the most inclusive and diverse teams accomplish the most extraordinary results.
Wisdom - We gain wisdom by combining evidence-based science with the hands-on insight that comes from experience. Information is not knowledge. And knowledge alone is not wisdom. We know that sometimes we must embrace complexity in order to get to the simplest solution.
Wonder - We stand in awe of the deep mystery of life that sits at the center of every fertility journey. At the core of this mystery is the desire to tap into our most basic creative potential as humans: To create life, whether that’s one’s own life or bringing a new life into the world. To create family. We believe that by embracing what is unknowable with wonder, we can move through anxiety into a state of curiosity and gratitude. This is where the best creations come from.
Well-Being - Every problem has a unique answer and each life has its own path. Well-being arises when we approach situations with an open mind, knowing that where we started may not be where we end up. When we stop chasing what we believe to be ‘the one right thing’ we become receptive to possibility and wholeness.
