Kevin Thornton- Author & Health Specialist

I came to EMU from Cleveland , Ohio in 1990. Was a RA in Hill hall and graduated with a BS in health Administration in 1994. Work for Blue Cross Blue Shield in Michigan, Indiana and finally Georgia. In 2012, I was life coached by Ilyanla vanzant and her team and that when I realized my life's purpose. I went back to school to get my Master's in Psychology and got certified as a life coach. I began coaching and also teaching fitness classes to create my platform. In 2015 I was certified as a holistic health coach. I started and internet radio show on status network called the Wellness architect Show with the purpose to inspire, educate and motivate others to create the healthiest versions of themselves mind, body and spirit. With that platform, my goal was to showcase black men in a different light. Society and the media show black men negatively and I wanted the world to know that there are more men like me than they are of what the portray us to be on tv. Finally, in 2017, I co-authored the Amazon best selling book 20 Beautiful Men.
