    I have been working with LaWanda this summer on the HAES (Health at Every Size approach). She has helped me to see things from a different perspective and to be more accepting of others and myself. I hope more people will jump on board and learn the HAES approach. This experience has boosted my self confidence and made me realize that we are not all meant to look the same. I enjoyed working with LaWanda very much.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing LaWanda for the past 30 years. Yes, I said 30 years. She is an inspiration and a blessing in my life. An empathic motivator who inspires one to reach their highest potential - in their own time, in their own way. Smart, witty, professional and intuitive - you can't go wrong with her as a life coach. Take that step and reach out to her, she'll meet you no matter where you are in life. LaWanda will show you just how powerful you can be, and help you to see the potential that's within your reach!

    LaWanda is an excellent wellness professional and coach. She created a lifestyle program for me that included a food plan and exercise program that I have been following successfully. I have more energy and lowered blood pressure. I highly recommend her.
