Meet the Team

Our mission: to equip women to be their best and have joy in their daily mission field.

Our method: Peeling back the layers one by one, not rushing the process. This takes time and we want to walk alongside you. 

We do this by aiding women in throwing off what hinders, so they can run the race set before them with joy and perseverance. 

Hebrews 12:1

God placed me in the healthcare world when I was 16, and I had plenty of time to see that my heart for serving others might not be best used in the pharmacy.  But it wasn’t until I had my daughter back in 2012 (full story here!) that I saw a glimpse of the full scope of what God wanted me to pursue. 

As the founder and co-owner of this virtual integrative healing practice, I know this is what God made me to do. Leading a team of other practitioners as we serve and share the love of Christ with them, it’s one of my greatest honors.  I’m so glad you’ve found yourself here ( and I know it’s not by accident:) and I pray that the Lord leads you to true healing in Him.

Meet Kari

Founder, Co-owner, Lead Practitioner

Meet Jenn

Co-owner, Lead Practitioner

God put a deep desire in Jenn’s heart to love and serve others, I could tell that right away when I met her for the first time back in 2021(read more about her story below!) . It’s been nothing short of amazing to watch God intertwine our stories and passions since we first met. During this time, God laid on my heart that community among practitioners was missing.

In committing to follow His lead, I have now stepped into more of a leadership role within this practice. It was so obvious to me that Jenn was a true partner and that she is so gifted in working with clients. So as the new co-owner and lead practitioner of this virtual practice, she is exactly where God made her to be. I am so thankful for the Lord’s leading in this, as both of our missions have always been to help more people.

-Kari

I am an Integrative Health Practitioner (IHP), focusing on finding the root physical cause of mental health (anxiety and depression), and chronic conditions such as autoimmune disease and Lyme.

I struggled with depression, anxiety, and horrible periods throughout my teens and college. I started having panic attacks after college and realized that I couldn’t live my life like this anymore.  I started looking into the root anxiety, depression, and painful periods with someone trained in functional nutrition. What I found was I needed to replenish my minerals and other micronutrients, balance my blood sugar by eating more consistently, address the inflammation in my gut, handle my emotions through tapping (emotional freedom technique) and address the constant stress with HeartMath, a proven technique to interrupt the stress response.

After learning how to improve my own health, my passion was ignited. With my background in athletic training and my love of nutrition, God led me to
Standard Process, a professional supplement company. I spent 19 years working in sales for Standard Process, consulting with doctors and practitioners on complex cases and root cause resolution. I helped develop effective protocols for patients, often giving these patients relief when mainstream medicine could not. During my tenure with Standard Process, I attended over 2000 hours of continuing education seminars on various subjects, including muscle testing. Nutrition Response Testing, a type of muscle testing, is one of the invaluable tools I learned while with Standard Process. This technique allows practitioners to learn the precise nutrient needs of the body and has become invaluable for me in my current nutrition practice.

What I have discovered through my own journey and those of countless others, is that although many of these symptoms are “normal” for many, when you find the root cause of your health challenges and address them, vibrant health comes organically. What follows is more joy, more presence with the people you love, and the ability to serve where needed, whether that is at work, at home or both. Because isn’t that what it’s all about, showing up for the people that matter most?

Jenn’s specialties and strengths are:

-‘tough to crack’ cases/ those not getting results

-those that have gotten the run around with main stream medicine

-putting the pieces together, even when it’s not straightforward

-complex cases

Jen is amazing!

I didn’t realize just how lousy I always felt; tired, lightheaded, weak, until seeing Jen. I haven’t felt this strong and healthy in years, she has changed my life. Jen has also helped my daughter who has always had issues with constipation and severe anxiety.
Since seeing Jen these past few months she has become regular and hasn’t had any major anxiety attacks. I know she feels huge improvement because she takes care of her daily supplement routine on her own without any reminders.
Sarah

Jenn is so intelligent and informative! She has taught me so uch about my mind and body. Most importantly, she is so kind and patient. She genuinely cares about my well-being and takes the time to ask many questions as she can to get to the root of the  problem.

For years, I have suffered from anxiety, stress, sleep and hormonal issues and had basically given up any hope that I would get better. Through her recommendation, I have completely changed the way I eat and the way I deal with stress. Since implementing her diet advice, supplement recommendations and techniques for dealing with my emotions, I have been feeling better than ever!

 

Brian G.

Jenn has provided care for members of my family ranging in age from infants to the elderly. She understands that we are all multifaceted individuals with complex stories and takes time to listen attentively without judgment – and always with compassion – to our stories. Jenn recognizes that we are emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual beings and that each of these elements influences our overall health.

Jenn is intelligent and determined. Her knowledge is used to heal our bodies and not just cover up our symptoms. She gives hope to the often very weary and discouraged person with an infectious smile, friendliness, great ability to listen, patience, expertise, and a doable action plan that actually gets results. She is gifted and all of us have benefitted in small and very big ways from her professionalism and love.

Meet Hannah

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner
Client Liason

I’m Hannah! Former elite athlete of 17 years, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist Practitioner , Holistic Practitioner, wife to Josh and mama to Josie. 

Like many of you, I was lead by the Lord to the field of functional medicine and a holistic approach to health after a debilitating gut disorder, which spun into a ruthless eating disorder, and a chronic cycle of under-eating while over-exercising, almost took my life.

Conventional medicine, while incredibly helpful in many situations, only put a band-aid over my declining health through diets, medications, and therapies. With the help of many (especially Kari), through functional testing, personalized protocols, and unwavering support, I’ve experienced SO much healing, so I know you can too!

My passion is to support women in their healing journey’s through:

* Helping you to create a sustainable protocol to best support you and your family through: diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, and supplements.
* Coach up your God-given intuition, because no one knows your body better than you!

One of the things that makes Hannah so special is how she compassionately empathizes with you while constantly listening and truthfully seeing where you’re at. She is thoughtfully wise and uses her God-given gifts to fight for truth, freedom, and wholeness. Hannah has a quiet and joyful strength that encourages and comes along side others to uplift them. Truly she is a constant blessing to have in your corner.

Krista

Hannah is an amazing woman to know. She is caring, attentive, and very driven. Hannah is great at listening and is thorough in her explanations! Her love for Jesus and love for others shines in everything Hannah says and does.

Kristin

Hannah is someone I would highly recommend for any task that requires one to be patient, thorough, kind, and empathetic. In both friendship and professional settings, I have observed Hannah strive to fully understand the scope of any situation. She approaches problems and conflicts with not only a level head but also compassion and empathy. Doing life with Hannah is made easy by her infectious laughter and joyous smile!

Meet Amanda

I’m Amanda, a holistic health coach who uses food as medicine. Whole wellness is looking at all areas and making sure there is a balance between spiritual, physical, and emotional health. Whole food is the way God intended for us to eat and teaching others what that looks like so that their bodies can heal themselves is one key to the puzzle. My journey has been long and personal, but it makes me compassionate yet straightforward on how your lifestyle affects your health. Everyone needs a cheerleader and an accountability partner rolled into one! My goal is to help others learn to listen to their bodies and make them the best version of themselves they can be. I love teaching simple tricks to improve health and teaching others how to be their own advocate!

I received official training from Health Coach Institute as a certified health coach in Sept 2019 and then finished my life coaching certification in December 2019. But what lead me to that was being a caretaker and health advocate for my son for 11 years and then my own personal health crisis that took 10 months to climb back from. My love for research, and holistic health took root during those years. I have since never stopped learning and the desire to share my own journey and help others has continued to grow. 

Amanda’s specialties are nervous system support and brain rewiring.  

To work with Amanda plus others on our team simultaneously, make sure to select that option to add on to your package.

Acknowledging, dealing with and forgiving myself will have a huge impact on the rest of my life.

April

Amanda’s passion to see others come to wholeness-physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally drives her great work. You can tell how much she cares about your well-being in every conversation she has with you. Her recommended exercises and activities are well timed and tailored for her clients. She is an amazing listener and helps you process your needs with time and understanding. She speaks truth in love and grace.

Stacey

Learning that control and surrender are opposites has changed everything. Learning that being present and mindful takes work but is worth it. And learning that set backs are not failure or defeat has opened my eyes.

Valerie

Unsure what would be best for you?
