Kim Teasley – Director of Women’s Health and Wellness
Kim’s journey to being an advocate for Women’s health began over 10 years ago. During her years at Atlanta Medical as a Nutrition/Weight loss coach led her into discovering Hormone balancing. Seeing Women struggle with their weight issues and overall wellness at that “certain age”, made her realize there was more to achieving goals and feeling your best other than diet and exercise. Hormone balancing became her passion, not only because she saw how it was helping her women patients in large numbers, but she too became a patient. Along with helping her patients, that she also considers her sisterhood friends, she got the bug to help grow practices.
Kim then set out with numerous practices in the Atlanta market to do business development and made a big name for herself in the market to help practices grow and achieve the Richard Branson mentality for staff, owners and patients! Her passion is to treat patients as you would want your Mom, Sister, Aunt, Best Friend, to be treated, and also to treat your staff as family. Now that she has a permanent home with Brookhaven Women’s Health and Wellness, her goals are to help women feel their best from the inside out! She brings a lot of her own experiences in life to help women achieve their ultimate best in life as they journey together through the “certain age” issues.
Kim’s other passions are her 5 children and 7 grandchildren along with her 3 rescued fur babies.
She enjoys the outdoors, being with her family and her Pittsburgh Steelers!
In her spare time is a blogger, f–wordsbykim an inside look through her journey and others as we roll through those f years!
