Who We Are

Jeanna here! Dr. Steve and I met 20 years ago, and our joint passion for health and wellness was evident from the start. Our first date was at the gym, and our second date was a hike...really!  :)
We were both at an interesting intersection in our lives. Steve had lost his mother 2 years before, from complications due to diabetes. He had made the move from the administrative side of health care into fitness and nutrition, so he could make a real impact. I had been struggling with my health for a while (chronic fatigue, migraines, weight gain, severe gut symptoms, and more) and finally found Functional Health, and what would eventually change my health and my journey in every possible way. 
Not only we did fall in love, but we also brought our vision of helping others together and ultimately founded Lifestyle Evolution. And our company has grown with us and evolved, as we have dug deeper and deeper into how we bring ancestral principles to our work, to ensure that our clients not only lose the weight for good, but improve their health in ALL areas. Thus the Ancestral Health Protocol was born!
And our path, like most people, has been full of twists and turns, and many challenges. We now have 3 kiddos, one who is grown and two that are still young (currently 8 & 10). Our 8-year old is medically complex, with severe epilepsy, a cyst in her brain, and the inability to speak and walk. So life is unpredictable to say the least! I share this so you can see that we understand how hard it can be to put your health and self-care first. It is something we work on as a family consistently, and it takes time to create new habits and a lifestyle that supports longevity and vitality. But I promise you, it is worth it and you deserve to be living your healthiest and happiest life!
