Bio for Denise Shamlian 

Denise Shamlian, Health Education Advocate and owner of Get Up Get Out Get Well Health Coaching, has successfully worked with clients around the world helping them achieve their health and happiness goals. 

Episode highlight

As an Armenian-American, Denise Shamlian was raised to be straightforward and direct in her communication and pursuit of goals. Listen in on how she uses her talents and abilities to create a productive solutions-based existence in the health and wellness industry.





“Health and wellness is something that sets you up for success in so many places in your life.” 

“Anything is possible, anything is achievable.”

“Feedback is just feedback… it’s neither good nor bad; it just is.”


Childhood Incidents

Denise is a first-generation Armenian-American on her father’s side and second generation on her mother’s. Her family taught her to be tenacious, direct, straightforward, open and free-spirited in her communication. Being an older sister in a single-parent household, Denise also learned to stand up for her mother, and become a solution-seeker who took charge. 

Influential Groups 

Denise grew up in Queens, New York in a middle-class community composed of people from different backgrounds, cultures and religions. Even though she is not a religious person, being born into a Christian Armenian family taught her to be tolerant of all practices. 

She also gets her love for food from the Armenian culture, which she has extended into her practice as a wellness coach, teaching people how to use food to heal. Denise belongs to the Central Park Dance Skaters Association and has skated all over the world. 

Temperament and Personality Influences

Denise has always been a “persister”, throwing tantrums if she didn’t get what she wanted as a child. She is working to go with the flow of the universe and pick her battles now. 

Cultural Epiphanies

In her travels, Denise found that her direct style of communication was not always a good fit, especially in the more “proper” areas of Europe. Even in her professional life, she has found that there can be a big gap between what is being communicated and what is understood. 

Advice to an Employer 

Denise wants her clients to know that she is committed to their happiness and using the therapeutic relationship for all-around growth.
