Betsy Ranum Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coach and Registered Nurse at MN Integrative Health Studio

Betsy Ranum MA, RN, NBC-HWC

Betsy (she/her) is an integrative health & wellbeing coach, and community holistic nurse. A registered nurse in Minnesota since 2012, Betsy earned an integrative nurse coach certificate in 2014, became a national board certified health & wellness coach (NBC-HWC) in 2019, and in 2020 completed an MA in Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coaching at the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality and Healing.

Betsy’s nursing path has been unconventional: in 11+ years of nursing she’s never worked in a hospital. Before professional nursing, she worked in social justice movements and political organizing, sustainable farming and beekeeping, coffeeshops and farmers markets, and cared for her dad who lived for 15 years with early onset dementia. Betsy’s work and volunteer care experiences include public and preventive health (most recently helping lead and provide direct care at the University of Minnesota COVID-19 Testing Site); community holistic mental health and integrative/holistic psychiatry practices; supportive housing for individuals transitioning from unhoused, institutional, and incarcerated circumstances; the Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition; housing for people living with HIV; a community clinic in Nicaragua; harm reduction sites; and home health care. Betsy started incorporating integrative coaching into nursing practice in 2014. As part of her graduate studies, Betsy interned as an integrative health coach at Virgin Pulse and Hennepin Healthcare. She worked as an integrative nurse coach in private practice for two years, and as front desk staff and integrative health and wellbeing coach at NE Wellness.

Betsy practices coaching with deep humility, respect, and unconditional positive regard for the clients she works with—as a model for flipping the paradigm of care from power-over to power-with. She partners with clients, skillfully cultivating space for people to find their inner wisdom, explore challenges, and expand their own vision of what is possible.

Trained in various modalities including:

  • Relaxation
  • Awareness,
  • Mindfulness
  • Breathing
  • Guided imagery
  • Hypnosis
  • Biofeedback
  • Reiki
  • Enneagram, and other mind-body-spirit practices

 

Betsy has years of experience supporting many people-–from woo-woo lovers to side-eyeing skeptics—to tap their innate healing skills and creative resources.

Betsy is her own #1 case study in the art and science of integrative health and wellbeing. A raced-white, settler descendant, cisgendered, queer woman with a highly sensitive nervous system, Betsy is on a humble, awkward, and persistent lifelong journey to heal and transform patterns of generational, ancestral, and cultural trauma and systems of domination within her own mind-body-spirit. Her greatest hope is that this work might also radiate out: in service of others, her communities, the collective, and the planet. She loves to nap, read, be quiet, be outside, think and talk about astrology and politics and water and all kinds of other stuff, hang out with her amazing friends and beloved partner Andrew, and hoof by the river—and just about everywhere—with their dog Danney Mars.
