Meet A Gutsy Girl.

Sarah Kay Hoffman is the founder of A Gutsy Girl, which was founded in 2012 as a way to connect with women worldwide who were also seemingly sitting in silence about all things IBS, IBD, infertility, and more.

What began as an online journal documenting the day-to-day with one health issue after the next, would become less story-focused; more research and journalistic-based.

Sarah Kay Hoffman graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Marketing/English/Mass Communications. After years of struggling with her own health issues and considering there must be more to healing than the answers she was given, she went on to study at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, adding a CHC (Certified Health Coach) to her education.

She began devoting every last single spare second to studying, researching, (and practicing!) and things gut health and gut healing.

When Sarah is not giving back to the Gutsy community, she is likely writing on a more personal level at A Thyme for Milk and Honey, traveling, drinking lattes, reading her Bible, and soaking up all the love that is her husband, three adorable children, family, and friends.

Her full story can be found HERE.

I'm Trinity Morrow, a health coach + right-hand woman to the Gutsy Girl.

I work on the AGG team doing a variety of things including:

  • brand outreach and partnerships
  • customer service
  • graphics and design
  • health coaching! (my newest role upon graduating from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition)

I am currently finishing my last semester at Duke University studying biomedical engineering and chemistry with plans to attend medical school post-graduation.

As a Gutsy Girl myself, I am healed from SIBO, and Leaky Gut. I became interested in holistic health after being diagnosed with celiac disease and I am also a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My goal as a health coach is to help other women achieve their best lives and overcome health challenges by implementing simple steps.

When I'm not studying, I love to cook (allergy friendly recipes, of course), rock climb, mountain bike, travel, and paint. 


I'm Gabbie, social media and graphics assistant.

I am an experienced freelancer in the fields of social media, client outreach and project management.

I have over 7 years experience, and I love working with people from all over the world as I learn about different cultures.

I value the quality of my work, every time, all the time.

I love spending time with my beautiful 2-year-old daughter when I'm not in front of my home office.

I believe in A Gutsy Girl's mission towards helping her fellow women heal.
