Triple Braided’s approach to wellness is all about Standing Stronger Together! When we encourage, motivate and help one another, the results make us stronger. So Triple Braided designs integrated wellness plans around the life you’re already leading. Then we work together; sharing ideas, challenges and successes to uncover the real benefit of your strength: your happiness.
There isn’t one static answer for every individual, but there are some static truths and tips that can help everyone design their individualized plan. A healthy lifestyle takes dedication, determination, and trying new things, but it is within everyone’s reach, and it looks different for each of us!
The name Triple Braided comes from a verse in Ecclesiastes that says, “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple braided cord is not easily broken.”
I am a registered dietitian nutritionist, wife, mother of 3, devoted Virginia Tech Hokie, and avid runner . I love what I do, and have a passion for sharing how we can all make one another the healthy and joyful people we are meant to be!
