About Chandra

My name is Chandra Green and I’ve had multiple roles around health, fitness, and advocacy. One day I took some step classes around age 20, and then ended up teaching those classes as a certified AFAA instructor for 8 years. That coincidental fitness class directed me in ways I didn’t even realize at the time.

A few years later, I got a Master’s in Health Education from ECU which has supported my passion for personal and professional health outcomes. The strangeness of 2020 has led me to complete a Yin Yoga instructor training in 2021 and a Resilience & Thriving Facilitator certificate in 2022. In February 2023 I will complete a Breath Coach Trainer certification. 

I’m most proud of past work in tobacco-free legislation affecting all North Carolinians. I was part of the statewide team that advocated for individual smoke-free policies at restaurants, leading to legislative change for smoke-free bars, restaurants, and schools. Talk about seeing significant change in a state that has deep cultural and financial roots to tobacco as a crop! It was such a great time to be involved in a dramatic paradigm shift here in North Carolina.

I think it’s always important to look for opportunities and take a risk, whether it’s personally or professionally. A growth mindset and being proactive is critical to moving forward no matter what arena you’re in. 

You can learn a lot about yourself if you lean into discomfort and the unknown.

  1. Hi Chandra! I was cleaning out my file cabinet and ran across my Tobacco Free schools’ folder. You did a great job!
    Glad you are doing well. We are too. All 4 of our children are doing well too – successful careers and exercise regularly ! We have 4 beautiful grandchildren!
