Kristie Rosser, Optimal Wellness

I’m Kristie Rosser — Married Mamma with 4 awesome, busy kids,

Marathon runner, Endurance athlete, Entrepreneur
and Lover of clean whole food.

I believe that we only have one life to live and that we should live it optimally.
I have worked in a vast variety of health care settings for more that 25 years.
During this time, I have seen disease, unhealthy lifestyles, unhealthy aging, and poor life choices close-up.

After 4 babies in six years (all C-sections), while working full-time, a 70+ pound pregnancy weight gain with each child (true story—and yes, yikes!), I developed a struggling adrenal system resulting in chronic fatigue, constant brain fog, a failing thyroid, weight loss resistance, food allergies, worsening seasonal allergies, and eczema. That coupled with the aging hormonal changes that naturally occur beginning at 35 years old and beyond, all resulted in a lack of “umph” = lack of enjoyment to my life= I was seriously bummed.

St George MarathonI had gone from a high-functioning amazing high milege running woman, to feeling tired all the time.

Bottom line:
It was time for a change.
I was ready to find my balance and reclaim my life.
I decided to design and live a healthier, balanced, more optimal life.

So, I made a decision to get far away from disease -– both professionally and personally.

I left the traditional disease-based medical profession (which included leaving the security of a high-paying job), and started my entrepreneureal journey into opening my very own holistic wellness practice.

I furthered my holistic education, primarily as an effort to learn how to heal my own body since traditional medicine didn’t offer solutions that made sense to me.

Throughout my education, I have been exposed to the most cutting-edge hormone therapy, age management, nutrition, lifestyle, detox, and dietary theories, and studied highly effective coaching techniques to help you find the right life-balance that works best for you. My wellness practice has evolved to incorporate what I know works to help my patients find life-balance and live their optimal lives.

Most importantly, I have learned through my own experience that in order to be well, you must live a life of complete balance. This balance includes: stress, sleep, hormones (thyroid and adrenal, too), nutrition, emotional/spiritual, and relationships. Once I figured out where I was out of balance and corrected it, I got my life back. My energy returned, my body weight balanced, and I began to train for marathons again.

In a nutshell, I help you unlock your inner power to heal. I help busy people find their life-balance.

It’s time to become a priority in your life.
Take your health to the next level—the optimal level.

My background as a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with 25 years of experience in the medical field, combined with my Holistic Health Coach, Nutritional Therapist and Detox Specialist Degrees have enabled me to view health and wellness in a unique way.

My additional certifications in Age Management Medicine and Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy allow me to help my patients in a more complete and foundational way to enable them to age well and enjoy an exceptional quality of life.
