Susan Russell

Owner / Operations Manager / Health Coach

Susan enjoys mingling with patients and supporting their individual emotional, physical and spiritual growth as a health coach when she’s not behind the scenes managing business operations and marketing.  Her TV news career and background in video production, coaching and business development prepared her well when it comes to connecting with people, creative ideation and juggling multiple projects under deadline.  Her compassion for patients and desire to help them realized their health goals comes from her own healing journey.  And much like her storytelling days, Susan finds great pleasure cultivating truth to awaken the heart when it comes to guiding patients towards wholeness. When not diving into business affairs, she enjoys spiritual pursuits, quality time with family and friends, working out, traveling, experiencing new and different cultures, the beach, the mountains, mt biking, hiking and camping.

Sue brings to our office over two-decades of customer service expertise as she was once a professional hospitality interior designer. She is often the friendly face you’ll see when you arrive for your appointment. Her warm, caring personality allows all who walk into our office to feel at ease. When she’s not answering your calls, assisting clients with scheduling, and filling supplement orders, she can be found hanging out at the pool with her husband, two daughters and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. She also loves to sew and has a passion for modern quilting.

Patti Becht

Assistant Office Manager

Patti joins our front office staff working afternoons. She feels blessed to be a part of this wonderful team, and truly cares about each client that walks in. She takes your calls, assists with scheduling and filling supplement orders, among many other tasks that keep the office busy. Patti has over 20 years experience in administrative roles and customer service. As her two children have now grown and gone off to college, she is now able to enjoy the role of customer service once again, and looks forward to meeting each of you. When she is not in the office Patti loves being outdoors. You will find her most days out walking with her two dogs or working in her garden.
