Owner, Bio Technician, and Lifestyle Coach
As the owner of our clinic people ask me if I am a doctor, I am not a doctor. My background is in business. For 17 years I owned a sales company called Eclipse Marketing. I spent 5 years with Winder Farms and then 1 year with PRIME, a health and nutrition education company. Along with being the business owner here at Healthy Living Family Medical, I am also a certified Bio Meridian Technician and Health Coach with experience in weight loss and health training programs.
I try to be active in serving the community. For two years I served as the president of the Utah Chapter of the Young Entrepreneur’s Organization. I served for six years on the Board of Directors for the Utah Chapter of Make a Wish Foundation. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Utah Community Credit Union.
My interest turned to health and Functional Medicine when I got a Carotid Intima-Media Thickness test (CIMT) which measures inflammation in your carotid artery. I took the results to a doctor and he said I was six months away from a stroke. I am an active person; I have completed 8 Half-Ironman races and multiple Olympic and Sprint distance triathlons. I was going to be one of those stories, the guy running a marathon that drops dead of a heart attack or stroke. I had extensive blood work and gene testing done and it came back that I have a defect in my MTHFR gene. It was causing the inflammation. As soon as I was on the proper methylated B Vitamins my risk was dramatically reduced. I am grateful for Functional Medicine that tests for and knows how to treat these kinds of conditions.
I am passionate about what we do here at Healthy Living Family Medical in Layton. We are saving lives and giving hope and answers to people’s health problems. I see it every single day. I love being a part of this work and team.
