Working from home can be difficult and be both physically and mentally demanding. Be sure to check out November’s Lunch and Learn listed below. Kids at home too? Check out these resources to help keep your children happy and healthy so you can all work together to maintain and even improve your well-being.

Lunch and Learns

These lunch and learns are based on information and knowledge that I gained over the past year while completing my Masters Degree in Human Performance and Nutrition. Throughout my career and while working with clients at OC Tanner I began to notice a gap in an understanding of health management, misinformation, missing information, and knowledge that just is not being shared. To that end, I began to create a system of classes designed to help individuals improve their total health and wellbeing by providing important and necessary information and tools to enhance and optimize their lives. You just have to attend and implement them. Hope to see you in an online class soon!
