As a registered dietitian and nutrition educator, she finds it rewarding to work with patients one-on-one, to develop a plan that is successful, yet tailored to meet their individual needs.

Jeff Norment, CPT
Certified Personal Trainer

Jeff Norment is a certified personal trainer who thrives on designing patient-centered fitness plans for people who have physical and emotional challenges associated with being overweight. He recognizes that small steps can be a big win for a patient who has never been able to take steps toward fitness, has been held back by being overweight, or doesn’t have the stamina for traditional fitness programs. Jeff’s favorite part about the fitness center at Team:Bariatrics is that it’s private, so he can give the individualized attention each patient deserves.
