THE HEALTH AND
& WELLNESS BOARD
At the Wellness Journey Partnership℠ , I have developed a balanced team of professionals to help me stay on track and improve. I use my Healthcare and Wellness Board to critique my techniques and provide new information that will contribute to the clients’ success. Of course, I keep our client’s personal information strictly confidential and would never share identities, etc. without the permission of my clients. The Healthcare and Wellness Board consists of the following professionals: Dr. Daniel Veno, Family Physician, Melanie Hoffman, Corporate Wellness Professional, and Therese Shumaker, Registered Dietician and Counselor.
