"I’ve learned a lot about eating healthier and keeping track of foods. I have been able to reset some of my poor patterns of eating with some success."

"It has been eye opening and soul inspiring. I wish I had done this when I was in my 20’s. Rolanda has gone outside the box to help us. She has given us so many helps and aids to support health issues and other concerns. She is committed and dedicated to her profession. She is very likeable and often tells us she is journeying with us. We love each other and we support each other and Rolanda has given us that. This class is so great. Casey and Amanda are great too!"
