Jessica grew up in a household where food was important. Where meals were cooked and shared together as a family. New recipes were made all the time, and new ingredients were used. Today, she is still in the kitchen creating and experimenting with new culinary creations, but with the knowledge of how food interacts with your body and its important role in your overall health. Her husband and young daughter enjoy the fruit of her labour.
In the summer of 2017, Jessica decided to try Ideal Protein to shed the excess weight that had accumulated after changing jobs and having a baby. In 5 months, she had lost 70lbs and was back to enjoying life again. Ideal Protein changed the way she thinks about food and gave her a new challenge in the kitchen. She now follows a Paleo/Primal (no grains or sugar) lifestyle and has never been happier. Jessica has kept her weight off for almost a year now.
She looks forward to sharing the challenges and knowledge she learned through her 6 months on the Ideal Protein Program, as well as all the other healthy eating tips and tricks she’s picked up along the way. Her favourite way to do that is through the Ideal Lifestyle presentations that are offered to current and past clients, as well as anyone interested in learning how to live a healthier lifestyle.

Jon started his career as a pharmacist in Vancouver after graduating from the University of British Columbia in 2017. After a year working in the city, he decided to take a leap by moving to Ashcroft and joining the team at the IDA pharmacy. His favourite part of Ashcroft is the sense of community and how he is able to get to know all of the names and faces of people visiting the pharmacy. He loves helping people to better understand how to manage their medications more effectively. He realizes that community-based pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare professional to consumers. Having the skills, the knowledge and ability to improve patients’ health and outcomes, and working as part of a multidisciplinary team to support patients’ care. Jon became a medical advisor for Gemini Wellness Services programming in August of 2018. Again, wishing to help create positive changes in his new community and be an important resource in facing the ever-increasing diabetes’ epidemic. Outside of work he can often be found exploring the outdoors (and playing lots of fetch) with his dog Peaches, who loves the small town lifestyle.

What to Expect From Your Ideal Protein Experience
One of the most important things a health consultant does, is work to establish a bond built on genuineness, respect and trust with every client. To allow for a successful and effective professional relationship, we establish an understanding of each individual psychological, behavioral, and emotional needs. That begins by identifying their unique personality through open communication and active listening. At Gemini Wellness Services we recognize that access to support programming can be hard to achieve in rural area and for shift workers. We take that challenge away, by offering extended office hours, as well as satellite/outreach opportunities. We value how continuity of care and a multidisciplinary approach, with your medical doctor, pharmacist, and specialist empowers patients through support and education, to achieve their personal health and wellness goals.
