I was a morbidly obese Nurse Practitioner. I weighed 231 pounds at 5’3” with a BMI of 41. I believed that as a provider, I should be an example of a life well-lived, however, I failed continuously at creating health in my own life. I was introduced to the Optavia plan by my coach mentor Kristina Rodriguez and the rest is history.
I started the Optavia plan on May 20, 2020 (during the pandemic when everyone was gaining weight), and by the end of the year, I had lost 60 pounds. I started attracting clients who had been watching my journey and wanted help to get healthy just as I did. I believe my journey was the catalyst for building it into my business model.
As a medical spa owner offering body sculpting treatments, I also saw the value of providing holistic health management that had the clinical data and science to back up the success that I was experiencing. Believe me, I did my research and was impressed with the credibility of Optavia and Dr. Andersen.
