As healthcare continues to evolve, the role that functional medicine plays is increasingly important. Individuals are feeling empowered to take a more active role in their own health and health coaches are a rapidly growing segment of the industry.What is Functional Medicine?Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. It is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.Today I speak with Dr. Sandra and we will learn about mind-body health.

She spent nearly five decades making healthcare and education more holistic and innovative. With a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, Sandi specialized in positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mind-body medicine, and served as a teacher and the director of a clinic for Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD). She is a pioneer in her fields, having implemented programs such as the use of neurofeedback with patients and becoming the first-ever psychologist to earn certification through The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).Dr. Scheinbaum founded the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy in collaboration with The Institute for Functional Medicine. A clinical psychologist for over 35 years, she is an expert in positive psychology and mind-body medicine, and the author of Functional Medicine Coaching, Stop Panic Attacks in 10 Easy Steps, and How to Give Clients the Skills to Stop Panic Attacks.Connect with Dr. Sandra: FMCA WebsiteInstagram -  @functionalmedcoachFacebook -  functionalmedicinecoachingacademyI believe that Functional Medicine coaches are uniquely suited to help people take charge of their health.

About Veronica:Veronica is a digital marketing consultant, solo-traveler, and creative professional who believes in living big and laughing often. I specialize in assisting entrepreneurs with digital marketing strategies to help build a clean and effective online presence. After graduating with a BBA in Marketing from the University of Houston and 2 years in the oil industry, I felt something was missing; it was an adventure. A 3-week trip to Spain turned into almost 3 years abroad. The adventure wasn’t just plane rides and books on the beach, it was meeting new entrepreneurial women friends and reconnecting with pageant sisters (I was Miss Teen United America 2009) that were looking to make their mark in the world. All these women had two things in common 1: they needed help with “that social media stuff” and 2: they trusted me with their passwords. For the past 3 years, I have researched and learned the ins and outs of social media and the best practices to build a brand online. I was featured in a Women in Business spotlight for Eclectic Shades Magazine out of Austin, Texas to share my expertise with social media and small businesses. Even with all that I’ve learned, I struggle with imposter syndrome and always think there is someone who knows more and sometimes cringe when I call myself a “social media expert” but the truth is I am a Digital Marketing Consultant, Social Media Expert, and Public Speaker. Pageant life came full circle Thanksgiving 2018 when I was planning a trip to Sicily to visit my college friend and I had a message from Dr. Corinne Devin, a pageant sister who was stationed in Italy. I told her I was headed her way and invited her to our Thanksgiving dinner to find out she was only 15 minutes away! 9 years later we picked up where we left off and I started working with her and the International Ms. Pageant to support their social media initiatives.   When I am not managing social media accounts, creating content, or learning new digital marketing strategies, I take a break from the screens and go bike riding or crochet a new blanket. I am currently in Montgomery, Texas having coffee with my mom and taking my nephews for ice cream. I look forward to traveling abroad again but excited to explore the great state of Texas in search of beautiful sunsets and good food!I am finding my place in the world working alongside strong women to help build their online presence, providing someone they can trust as a sounding board for their ideas and join them on their adventure. How to reach Veronica:To schedule a consultation visit www.veronicaolivarez.comConnect on LinkedIn: on Instagram: @vero_olivarezSupport the show (

Learn how to heal from your past and say YES to wellness!Dawnel DeRubeis is no stranger to the pageant world, having started her career at the young age of 14.  She has held titles from the first-ever Miss Teen Santa Clarita Valley to Mrs. California and first runner up at Mrs. US Universal just a few years ago.  Throughout her pageant career, Dawnel feels so honored to have been given the opportunity to volunteer thousands of hours with various organizations including the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, Domestic Violence centers, 2020Mom, and many others.  She also credits her experience in the pageant world with lighting her fire for motivational speaking and that love extends into what she does today.  She has also aligned herself as a volunteer with an organization that speaks to her own story and has given her the chance to become a volunteer educator working with junior highs and high schools.  Dawnel believes the stigma will be shattered and true change in the number of lives lost to suicide will come with more and more people becoming educated and understanding the connection between mental wellness and suicide.  She often says, "there is no shame in my game" and she wants to guide people to a place where they can embrace who they are, what their story was, but to know that they can be so much more than what their story says. She is also the chair for the Out of the Darkness Campus Walk that takes place in Valencia each year.  The walk will be in the 3rd year in 2021 and she is proud to say the first two years not only met but exceeded the fundraising goals set by the national office.  Today, Dawnel is a certified health and life coach with an emphasis on mindset and mental wellness.  She says that her heart and life purpose is to help others create a life where they are thriving and truly living in their most authentic self.  Becoming certified was a natural step in her own healing journey after spending many years exploring ways to build her own wellness toolkit.  Her toolkit as she lovingly names it, helps her live with depression and anxiety in a healthy way.  In a way that brings clarity, a sense of calm, and a true sense of what being happy can be.  The newest tool she has added also brought her to become a wellness partner with a company that offers all-natural/holistic solutions for people that want to live their best life.  To be better than just good.  Dawnel is also proud of the wine business she is building alongside her husband of 17 years, continues to support and run the business side of her husband's art career, all why being Mom to two amazing kids.  Her daughter is going to be entering high school and is all things creative staying busy with singing, acting, piano, and of course friends.  Her son who is 10 is as most kids, loving the time with video games now that school is out for summer but also enjoys building his drum skills along with a few other instruments he is exploring. You can say the DeRubeis house is full of creative people! As a family, they enjoy traveling and creating new experiences and memories together.  How to reach Dawnel:Facebook: @DawnelDerubeisInstagram: @queenderubeisdk@derubeisfineart.comSupport the show (
