Coming on board at an optimum time with the release of Usana’s patent- pending InCelligence Technology, Cheryl is delighted to be a part of such a vision for cellular health.
She grew up in Goochland County but has resided in Henrico County for 30 years with her husband, John and three grown children. She is a partner in a residential design firm that specializes in construction drawings for homes, additions and garages.
Seeking out a logical approach to personally lose weight, Cheryl joined Usana and The Live Free group in July 2016. In a short while she discovered the importance that good health is not only about a person’s weight but it starts within the body with cellular nourishment. She found the support of The Live Free Group to be encouraging, enthusiastic and knowledgeable in their passion to share and teach a healthy lifestyle. With that positive impact, Cheryl wants others to develop daily habits in prevention and nutrition for a healthy future.
Carmen joined USANA and our Live Free Group team in January 2015. She has worked in corporate America for years, all the while struggling with health issues. Now that she understands more clearly that health begins at the cellular level, she wants to share this with others and passionately encourage them on their path toward health and freedom. Carmen, originally from North Carolina, now lives in Glen Allen, Virginia with her husband Chad and two daughters, Chandler (14) and Campbell (11). Carmen has experienced benefits personally to her health since connecting to USANA and this has given her even more reason to want to share the mission and vision of USANA for true health with others.
My Journey: In spending more time with God and studying the Health Message, I realized that I needed to make alot of changes in my lifestyle choices. I couldn’t do it on my own!
I prayed to God to help me to lose weight and feel better, I gave it to him! I was then told to talked to my friend Ellen who has been with Usana for many years. She would talk about the Reset, so I asked her what is this Reset and started in April. My cravings stopped for salty, sugar, coffee and wine!! Now Ive lost over 20 lbs and feel great! I now understand about The Glycemic Index and so much more. In September my Husband lost his brother at only 58 years old. That is too young to leave this earth and his 2 young sons! I know that God wanted me to start this business now to pass on what I have learned and experienced, to everyone I meet that is struggling. We need to take care of our temple so that God can use us how he intended and not cut our life short because of the choices we make daily! I’m so excited to be a health coach with Usana!

Ellen became very interested and more aware in personal health when one of your twin boys had reactions from the heavy metals contained in the preservatives that were part of the childhood vaccine schedule. Ellen was also personally dealing with unbalanced hormones and excess weight from her pregnancy and soon adapted the principles of a healthy lifestyle for herself and family. The Reset program was one of tools that provided a catalyst in bringing about her Transformation.
Now that her boys are 12 years old, Ellen’s goal as a health coach and mom have been focused on helping others become the best informed in the many ways to develop healthier options for their lifestyle. Her passion in helping those who may be going through some of these same challenges with their own children or wanting to have better health by offering support and knowledge through coaching and learning the importance of a low-glycemic lifestyle, with added nutrients from high quality supplementation and becoming more active can make in reaching your health goals with yourself and others.

I have a BS from Virginia Tech is Apparel Design and Fashion Merchandising. My husband and I just celebrated out 40th wedding anniversary and we have 3 grown children and a 4 year old grandson. Since March 2013 I have been focusing on my health, losing weight, and learning all I can about low glycemic eating and new ways of cooking great tasting healthy food.
It all started 12 days before I found out I was having hip replacement surgery. My goal was to not gain any weight while I was recovering. With the help of a health coach and the USANA products I ended up losing 20 pounds during my recovery. It has been an exciting journey of discovery. I would love to have you join me on this journey. “Sew Healthy” that is what I want to be! How about you!
