Sondra has worked in the Wholistic Health Field for over 20 years and her passionate interest in Health and Nutrition dates back even further. Like many people faced with perplexing health challenges, mainstream medicine did not bring the level of well-being she sought. Her search for alternatives led her to study Nutrition, Homeopathy, Bach Flower Therapy, and various forms of Body Work including massage, acupressure, and energy work. She started the Healthy Lifestyles website to share what she has learned and to assist others in maintaining an active role in their own healthy lifestyles. She is currently the editor of the site.

Susan has worked in Health and Nutrition for over 15 years, and her specialty is holistic pet care and nutrition. Over the years she has studied many modalities including many types of energy healing, flower remedies, color and sound therapies, homeopathy and nutrition.  She believes in the healing power of whole foods for our pets. She is grateful for the many nutrition experts and holistic vets she has worked with over the years and especially her own cat, Mr. Kitty. He was diagnosed with FIV, the feline immune deficiency virus. Because of him she learned many gentle but powerful healing therapies and was able to help him live a long and healthy life for 16 years. She still practices these healing techniques with her own pets and helps others with theirs. Her passion is to help others learn how to keep our animal companions happy and healthy.
