“I have been blessed to work with Amy Hiestand who specializes in bio-identical hormone therapy as well as weight loss. I continue to learn and grow my knowledge on a daily basis and absolutely love helping my patients not only reach their weight loss goals but keep the weight off. What we find our patients are most satisfied with (other than their incredible weight loss) is the encouragement and support of my staff. We are here for you every step of the way both to cheer you on and hold you accountable.”

As a teenager I was already checking glucose, blood pressures, managing medications and many other medical assistant duties for my mom who was diagnosed with a tumor in her brain which caused her to become completely blind. I became a certified Medical Assistant right after high school because I enjoy helping patients seek all the medical attention they need. I have always been very family oriented and putting family and patients needs ahead of everything else is a priority for myself. Working at Total Body Wellness encompasses my compassion to work closely with patients and to help them achieve their goals in health and wellness.

Right out of high school I joined the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman and separated after 4 years. During my time in the Navy I had so many amazing opportunities in the medical field. I learned more then I ever thought possible in those short 4 years. One of my favorite accomplishments is being one of sixteen Corpsman in the Navy chosen to do a trauma rotation at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. This was such an amazing experience and it really sealed the deal for my career in the medical field. I am currently a Certified Medical Assistant and I am going to school to become a nurse. I genuinely love helping my patients in any way that I can. I have also always had a passion for fitness and nutrition. I am currently a certified personal trainer and love helping people on their fitness journey. I am so trilled to work at Total Body Wellness so I can help you reach your weight loss goals.

My goal was to like who I was by the time I turned 50. I’ve always been very goal oriented. I graduated
from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Industrial
Psychology. I started off in Transportation and Manufacturing Management and gradually transitioned
out of operations into administration management. My family and my career always took a backseat to
my health. When I was 49, my granddaughter was born; this is when I decided I wanted to weigh 75 lbs
less on my 50th birthday, and I went to Total Body Wellness.

In addition to reaching my weight loss/ birthday goal, I also realized I didn’t want to work in my
corporate job any longer. Prior to COVID, I enjoyed traveling Europe while tagging along with my
husband on his business trips, but when I was home, I really struggled with anxiety every morning trying
to figure out what I should do during the day; I missed working, but it had to be something I either liked
a lot, or felt passionate about. I like Angela a lot, and I’m passionate about Total Body Wellness. TBW
helped me create a great life for myself, and I welcomed the opportunity to be a small part of other’s
weight loss journeys.
