Their motto is, “Helping you SHINE from the inside out.” Her goals are to educate clients about the care it takes to feel good, stay healthy and achieve the fullest in leading stronger and healthier lives.

Lechner works with top diagnostic labs on the forefront of comprehensive diagnostic testing that help her understand the biomedical status of a patient’s current health, including nutritional status, gastrointestinal and hormonal health, and immune function. This information allows the development of a personalized plan to meet individual health goals.

Working with Lechner is a collaborative team effort where patients learn how their bodies work for healing and living with full vitality. She says, “Health is not just the absence of disease, but rather having the physical and mental capacity to achieve all your goals every day. A simple care for self is with vitamin D that most don’t realize. It is essential. The side effects of deficiency can vary on many physical and emotional levels.”
