Lori Widmeyer

Lori Widmeyer - Head Coach

Lori is more than a wellness coach. In addition to being office manager and assisting Dr. Widmeyer with his office procedures for over 15 years, she has been helping patients achieve their weight loss goals for over 9 years. Her passion for offering support and concrete advice to people as they make small changes through the program, no matter the goal, is fulfilled on a daily basis. The overall lifestyle change is awesome to see and Lori is grateful to be a part of it.

As an empty nester, coaching has filled her natural inclination to nurture people. Lori not only enjoys watching patients lose weight, but appreciates the entire wellness journey. Lori finds great joy in supporting a patient who has transformed into a better version of themselves. While she is not at work, Lori can be found reading about weight loss and healthy lifestyles, cooking, walking and doing Pilates.

Lori has been married to Jeff for nearly 30 years. Together they have twin boys and a dog, Maggie.
