Jeff began his health journey 25 years ago by overcoming childhood obesity. After trying every diet and workout fad ever to have a book written about it, he took up daily meditation and a plant-based diet which he continues to this day. Jeff is now a health coach to encourage and teach others how to cook yummy, nutritious plant-based meals. Jeff continues his studies in nutrition from Dr. Michael Gregor of NutritionFacts.org, and the works of Drs. T. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn.

Mia experienced depression in 2016 after achieving a big goal without understanding why. So she went on a healing journey that took her many places, one of which was Family Constellations in 2018.

Through the work of Family Constellations and other practices, she continues her path of healing and supports others along the way. She’s also learning Tai Chi, how to grow vegetables, and American Sign Language.
