Hello & thanks for visiting my page! I’m Melissa, Pharmacist and Fitness Coach. I have a wonderful husband and we have three fur babies. I was inspired to pursue pharmacy as a career by a pharmacist I worked with who was passionate about counseling his patients on their medications and disease states. I wanted to be that person- the person people felt comfortable coming to for questions and having the knowledge to help them.
In 2009 I started my own healthy living and fitness journey. In pharmacy school I was learning about the dangers of obesity: heart disease, stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes, weak bones and others.
I decided it was time I started taking care of myself.
A friend loaned me a copy of Beachbody’s Turbo Jam and a Treadclimber. My life changed forever. I learned to love exercise, lost weight (which felt great!), learned to appreciate my body and developed a healthier relationship to food.
I became a Beachbody Coach to keep myself motivated and committed, be able to share my story with others and help them be successful in their journeys. I now have knowledge to share about diseases and health conditions, how medications can help (or hurt) and personal experience learning how to transform my own lifestyle. I have been able to help people quit smoking, take control of their diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. If you are ready to take control of your life, I am here for you. 🙂
I am also a resident “Wizpert.” Have questions about medication, nutrition, exercise, weight loss, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure…? Tired of message boards? This is a great way to connect to experts in various fields instantly! Please don’t hesitate to ask for a counseling session! Currently offering this unique service for FREE! 🙂
