Sara’s Story

Sara pursued a career in nursing as she has always enjoyed helping other people feel better.  It must have been in her genes as her mother and grandmother were both nurses as well.  Sara's career was mostly cardiac related; from bedside care, Rehab, Operating Room and Open Heart to the Cardiac Cath Lab and finally landing in Education (Cardiac Cath Lab, IR and Cardiovascular Services).  She always had a personal passion in general health and nutrition as she tried to maintain her own health and the health and wellness of her family.  Sara had struggled most of her life with many health issues; GI, hormonal, general immune, 6 root canals (1 removed), acne, sinus and allergies for a few, with anything and everything; from over-the-counter products to medications, self-help books and many doctors.  In 2005 (10 medications and 4 doctors later) when her health further spiraled out of control, she decided to seek alternative ways to regain her health.  She found out that she had Hashimoto's, Epstein Barr and Lyme's Disease. It has been through diet modification and nutritional therapy (supplements) that helped her get off all medications, regain her health and ultimately leave her doctors as well.  She learned over the years and came to believe that with real whole food, the right whole food supplements along with a healthy mind and spirit that she could improve and maintain her health.  When the flu-shot mandate was a requirement of her employment in 2013, she opted to leave her 17-year career as a nurse in the medical field as to not further risk her health and fragile immune system that she worked so hard to regain.  It was truly an amazing opportunity to move in the direction of her passion. She is excited to share and to help as many people as possible with their own health and wellness through the same methods that worked and continues to work for her.  Besides following her passion for good, real food and nutrition, she loves to read about it, continue studying it and definitely enjoys eating it. She loves music and laughter, family and friends as well as going for a walk, hiking, yoga, SUP, bodyflow, pump, spin, kayak, snowshoe, and a rare skiing trip is always awesome; but mainly being outside as much as possible, especially with her pooch “Daisy” and/or family and friends.

Jamie’s Story

Jamie’s self-appearance has always been a struggle since childhood making her conscious of her body and what she ate. That led Jamie to have a lifelong passion for health, the human body, and striving to always look, feel, and perform better. Jamie pursued a career in nursing as she wanted to help keep herself and others healthy. She was also the 4th generation in her family to become a nurse so helping others was definitely in her blood. Jamie’s nursing career was in the Emergency Room. Jamie struggled with cold sores, GI issues, hormonal imbalances, and concentration difficulties for most of her life. It then progressed to having her gallbladder surgically removed. But after the removal of her gallbladder, she continued down a slippery slope of more health issues; weight gain, fatigue, more hormonal imbalances, thyroid and adrenal issues, more GI complications, as well as Lyme’s disease and infertility. Jamie had always dreamt of becoming a Mother. It was through diet modification, whole food supplements and balancing her mind and spirit that helped Jamie turn her health around. Her dream of having a vibrant, healthy pregnancy and baby came true in July 2017 while delivering at Authentic Birthing Center. She chose not to have any ultrasounds done throughout her pregnancy followed by no conventional newborn interventions nor vaccinations for her baby. Jamie decided to leave her medical career after 5 years to further protect her own health as well as her new baby boy’s.  It was the perfect time to continue with her passion and help others. Jamie is excited to help as many people as possible with their own health and wellness through the same methods that worked and continues to work for her. Jamie enjoys reading and continuing to learn about her passion for food and nutrition as well as child bearing women and children. She enjoys being active and enjoys the outdoors while hiking, biking, golfing, playing tennis, mountain biking or even just going for a peaceful walk and practicing yoga.  Jamie also enjoys traveling, cooking and spending time with her family and friends.
