My name is Becky Anderson. I am the creator and owner of Physician’s Choice Wellness. I started PCW in 2008 after a lifelong mission to help others lead a healthier life. I wasn’t exactly sure which direction I needed to steer my studies, but when I lost my mom from complications of diabetes when I was 18 years old, I knew what God had planned for me. Now a mother of 5, I am passionate about raising an active/healthy family. I love my “6th child–PCW,” and am blessed to have the amazing team that I do. I grew up a basketball player, and after playing college ball, I started coaching high school girls. 22 years later I continue to coach at all different levels. My education and training is as an Exercise Physiologist, but my favorite part of counseling patients is helping them with the behavioral part of this weight loss journey. I don’t think outside the box, I live outside the box. My directors and I are constantly working on new and better ways to help the people that seek our assistance. I am honored with every single person that comes to us for help down this sometimes daunting road.
PCW directors keep the program running smoothly from start to finish. The directors have to wear several hats by being able to teach a class of any discipline (nutrition, exercise, or behavioral), manage the day-to-day operations, oversee the team, facilitate marketing efforts for growth, and work with any upset patients/employees/medical providers along the way.
The program directors are:
This group of ladies provide the clinical support to the PCW patients. They do lab work, EKGs, weekly clinic visits (weigh ins), and run the doctor days. The clinical assistants are the first point of contact for the patients, so they often are counseling them depending on how their week has gone.
The clinical staff is:
The attached are the PCW medical staff that provide the medical monitoring. They clear the patients to participate, meet w them regularly while in the program, review the progress, adjust medications, and motivate them to keep the weight off once they have lost it.
In any solid weight management program, it may appear obvious what the role of a Registered Dietitian or a Nutritionist would be. The nutrition discipline at PCW is so much more than that. It is vital that not only do these people learn how to eat better, but that they come to terms with a world that revolves around food. PCW is fortunate to have two of the best in this field.
Not to take away from the important roles that these ladies play, below are ladies that round out a strong PCW family. April Roulea is a life coach that helps to encourage and motivate the patients to keep working on their healthier life no matter what set back they face. April also manages the front desk and getting people started on the program.
Sara Mills is the lady making sure the billing part of PCW is running smoothly. She manages the patients’ accounts, as well as takes care of anything and everything involving insurance.
Patty Patient is the provider liaison that communicates between the team and the medical providers. She is a Registered Nurse that oversees the compliance of our medical monitoring. Kelley Lundy (not pictured) is a life coach that has been a participant herself. Her testimony helps others relate to her since she has been in their shoes.
Michelle Boatman (not pictured) is an exercise specialist that also has been a PCW participant. She is passionate about helping others become more physically active. She understands the crucial role exercise plays in long-term weight maintenance, and she practices what she preaches.
