Molly O’Neil is a certified health coach through Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She is passionate about wellness and helping others find better overall health. Her approach is to educate and empower others to live a healthy lifestyle by adding in healthier foods and life long habits rather than restriction or extreme dieting.
Jen Buettner RYT, RN, BSN is a Certified Yoga Teacher and Registered Nurse. She is passionate about yoga. She finds it to be an invaluable tool to alleviate stress, face life challenges by shifting perspective, and to live in a positive way. She began her journey after her decision to combine her experiences in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Pediatric Nursing, and her daily yoga and mindful practices. Yoga helped her balance taking care of others and herself, while creating a mindful, healthy approach to life. She hopes to share with others the practice of yoga by linking breath and movement to decrease stress and anxiety, and enhance one’s own mindful approach to wellness.
