Meet The Staff At Diagnostic Weight Solutions
I am so fortunate to have found health in my life after being diagnosed with cancer. My story starts when I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2001 after going to the doctor for back pain. This diagnosis took me down the medical route of chemotherapy, dozens of CAT scans and multiple trips to the doctor. Needless to say it was not my idea of what life was to be at 34 years old.
During my first 2 Chemotherapy treatments I had literally lost 15 lbs and all my hair. I knew at this point I was going to die if I kept going down this road. So I did what most people don’t do. I took the road less travelled. Through the advice of a very special telemarketer (who I am friends with to this day) I changed everything I knew about the food I ate, the supplements I took, the products I used, and the thoughts I allowed to stay in my head as well as the words that came out of my mouth. It all changed.
Against the oncologist’s advice, against my family and friends’ advice, against the fear of the unknown, I stopped all my cancer treatment. I began my own journey of discovery for health. It was hundreds of hours on the internet, dozens of books on health, and many hours speaking with natural paths, s, holistic M.D.’s, and dentists, that I journeyed. Now 15 years later, I am still here. I am happy, healthy and excited to share the most exciting news of all! You don’t have to be overweight, sick or unhealthy. The oncologist at Mayo Clinic gave me a year to live, but I am still here and I am sharing the message that was right under my nose. Literally!
I am so passionate about health. I found true health to be a balance of right eating, right nutrition, right exercise, right relationships, stress reduction, a nervous system working at 100%, family, and God. This is what I strive to balance in my life and in the clinic.
I’ve been fortunate enough to spend the past 7 years in the healthcare field. Most of my time has been in a natural healing environment. Watching hundreds and hundreds of people get healthy naturally (through adjustments, whole food nutrition, and weight loss programs), get off medications, and lose weight has created a passion inside me to help more people.
Working at Diagnostic Weight Solutions has given me the chance to help people lose tons of weight, and get rid of stretch marks and cellulite. I also get to work with the to help my patients with neck and back pain, headaches, posture problems, and overall health and wellness. I love coming to work every day and as you can tell… I love my job.
Outside of work, I love taking my dog (Jade) for walks, fishing, and shooting my bow. God and family are very important to me. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and especially enjoy outdoor activities.
I have loved health and wellness for my whole life. When I was in the professional dance world in the twin cities, studying ballet and modern dance, I really started to dive into wholesome health. It opened my eyes to the importance of helping your body function the way it was designed to instead of working against it or putting patches on issues. It is so awesome to watch the human body work!
Having been so invested in wellness it was a dream come true to get to work at Diagnostic Weight Solutions. I have the joy of helping so many patients which is such an honor. There’s nothing quite like helping people achieve their goals. It’s a privilege I do not take lightly, and I get to have fun along the way! I truly love people so working here is simply the best!
Outside of work I love to create. I enjoy art of all forms. When I’m not painting or creating, I enjoy hiking, riding my motorcycle, and teaching dance. I am also going to school for my Pastoral license in hopes of doing vocational ministry in the future. My all-time favorite thing to do is spend time with people. People are awesome!
