    Joni’s philosophy as your coach is as follows: “Wellness is not one- dimensional; it is very intricate and individual. No two people are the same, so no diet or plan will work for everyone. We are all unique. It is important to nurture every dimension and focus on small steps towards the ultimate goal, your health and wellness.”
