Lisa Kirshner, a busy wife and mother of 3, noticed changes in her health that were slowing her down. Nothing made sense, after all she was conscientious about food and fitness and did all the “right things.” It was not until she started following the wellness plan at work that she noticed a drastic improvement in her health.
“Living the lifestyle that I guide patients through gives me an understanding of the challenges and benefits they will experience. Until you heal and feel great you don’t fully appreciate how lucky you were to have been able to change the course of your life.”
She is proud to be part of a team that provides life changing care to patients.
