Jodi Schaeffer, MPH, RD, LDN
Since January 3, 2007, I have been driven by passion and purpose towards a healthy body, mind and spirit. In an effort to gain my health back, I launched a full armor war on obesity and won! Starting with my willingness to change my way of thinking about food, I learned to gain control over the triggers that caused my overeating and lack of exercise. Learning how to eat and fitting regular exercise into my life was the key to losing and maintaining a 90-pound weight loss.
As a result of my transformation, I returned to school and earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition Science. My role as a Master Wellness Volunteer is to continue enhancing my healthy living and sharing with others the joys of transformation. The main point I have learned during this journey is when we transform our mind, we transform our life.
