About Our Company

Our Mission

Our mission at Ideal Wellness is to help you achieve your ideal you inside and out. We will provide the highest quality weight loss coaching, nutritional products, and information to help you reach your goals. This is a lifestyle change and we will be with you throughout and after the entire process. Our goal is to help you, your family and the community in long-term wellness.

At Ideal Wellness we believe no one should go hungry. We are committed to helping those in our community get the food they need. In 2015 we launched our program {a pound for a pound} where one pound of food is donated to a local food bank for every pound our clients lose. If you know of a local organization that could benefit from this donation please contact us at info@idealwellness.com.

Emily Countryman

Owner

I started the program in the summer of 2011 when I had about 15 pounds of baby weight to lose. I finally lost it in just 4 short weeks! I had my 3rd baby in November 2012 and am proud to say I am still at my goal weight. Because of my success, we opened Ideal Wellness and have since opened multiple locations. We have helped thousands of clients lose tens of thousands of pounds and I am committed to helping others lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. I believe we can end the obesity epidemic and am determined to make a better future for our children.

I have worked in the healthcare industry since 2003. I am a certified weight loss coach and a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and look forward to your success on your weight loss journey!

Mardi Bock

ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

I am a Weight Watchers repeat offender. In 2011 I had bloodwork done and knew from those results, I had to make some major lifestyle changes. I tried the program, not knowing what to expect. I lost 75 pounds in 4.5 months and have never returned to that weight again.

I grew up in Eastern Washington. My husband and I moved to the Bellingham area in 2016 to be closer to our grown children and grandson. With my weight loss I discovered a new love for hiking, and moving to Whatcom County has opened a whole new world of awesome trails and views.

I am very excited to help you reach your goals on this journey to health and wellness!

I grew up in the PNW with all the beauty and outdoor activities available at your fingertips. I worked in the fishing industry for 12 years, and then moved to Orcas Island for 18 years. I was a bank manager for 16 years, as well as a Cardio Karate Instructor. My daughters convinced me to move to sunny San Diego where I worked in construction for 15 years, and enjoyed watching my grandkids grow up.

I am now happy to say that I am lucky to be working at Ideal Wellness with fantastic people. Not only are they helping me reach my weight goals, but I am able to help others feel better by doing Red Light Therapy.

There are so many benefits to RLT and the coaching you get here, everyone wants to see you reach your goals and continue through life healthy and happy. What a blessing finding Ideal Wellness. I’m excited to pass on what I know to others so they can be happy too!!!

Angie Parmely

Coaching Director and ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

I began the program in January 2013, in hopes of losing the weight I had put on due to life, before my 30-year high school reunion that August. I lost 45 lbs and showed up to my reunion smaller and healthier than I was in high school! In the past, I had tried every diet and exercise program out there, and as my weight yo-yo’d, I learned a valuable lesson. DIET was a bad four-letter word! The ShiftSetGo program works because it is not a fad diet. It is an education for your personal life about how food, and our society’s affliction to socially eat anything, affects your body. My cholesterol dropped 40 points into a healthy range and doctors lowered and removed many of the medications I had been taking. They were, simply, no longer needed! This was an eye-opener for me, and this valuable lesson has allowed me to continue my healthy balance for over 5 years!

“Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels!” This was my mantra during the program. This single line kept me on track during social engagements, as I did not need to speak the words, “I can’t eat that, I’m on a diet.” That empowered me to say no thank you, without questions. My coach would encourage me with it, and it pulled me through those low days when I wanted to give up. Today, I say it as a reminder of who I was versus who I am now, a strong healthy woman!

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you!” (Fred DeVito). As a Coach for Ideal Wellness, it is my sole purpose to encourage you through all challenges, and help you find what will empower you to change your habits and lead a healthy lifestyle. Through education, I want to help you establish and meet your personal goals, provide support and encouragement, and be your biggest cheerleader. Who do you want to be?

Tara McKinney

ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

My path has been one which has taken me from coast to coast with many stops in between. I am blessed to have received two amazing kids along the way who I’ve watched grow into fine young adults. They are the truest joy in my life. My life and career have always been helping people in whatever industry I find myself in. My heart is always bent to the service and aid of other people as they work to better their lives.

After many years of struggling with my weight and self-image, and trying various programs to become a healthy person at a good weight, I found Ideal Wellness. Together with the partnership of a friend who was pursuing her own weight loss journey I have lost 50lbs. This was the first program I found that I could commit to and as a result got incredible results. It gave me a freedom and confidence in my life that makes each day count in an amazing way. The team of coaches share a philosophy that is not only encouraging but creates a genuinely supportive and safe environment. Their coaching and support has given me my life back and added a quality to living that I have not experienced in years; essentially a new lease on life for me.

Currently, I am a ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach for Ideal Wellness. It is very rewarding to be a part of a team that encourages others with their personal care journey and I look forward to contributing to healthy personal goals for clients as well as myself!

Red Light Therapy Tech

In 1999, my husband and I and our two young daughters moved to Washington from Southern California. After settling in, we made the decision for me to stay home with our girls until they were both old enough to start school. During those years of being home, I became a really good cook, but I also was paying the price by gaining weight. I tried the various diets; South Beach, Atkins, even HCG. I would lose but then the weight crept back up.

Being a caretaker for my elderly father, I was stressed, and I put myself second to dad. Spaghetti became my favorite go-to comfort food. As his health was deteriorating, so was mine. In 2016 I found this program and dropped 25lbs effortlessly and I was able to drop my BP medications!

I am delighted to be able to help others achieve their goals through RLT, be it inch loss, pain relief, wound healing, or any of the many other benefits that can be achieved with this fantastic technology! I feel so fortunate to be part of a team whose goal is to help each and every person who comes through our doors achieve the best for themselves. Here’s to better health!

Corrina Bickle

Operations Director and ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

A Snohomish County native, born and raised. Once I hit my 30’s, my general health was steadily going downhill. I realized that I needed to do something about it and made a decision that changed not only the way I physically look and feel but also how I approach life. I found Ideal Wellness through a friend, and did my own research on the program. Ideal Wellness works!

I began the program in February of 2013, lost 70 pounds and learned how to successfully keep it off for good. I chose to become a coach because I believe in this program – not only how but why it works.
As someone who has “been there,” I love being on the other side of the experience so that I can help you through it with experience, knowledge and encouragement!

Tammy Ramaley 

ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

I am so proud to be a part of the Ideal Wellness team in Smokey Point.   I previously worked for two years coaching clients and discovered that I had a strong interest in helping people reach their weight loss goals. Being a coach at Ideal Wellness, I feel I’ve returned to a world that inspires me and makes me happy.  And I am currently enjoying success on the program myself.

Born and raised in Hawaii, where rich foods play such an important cohesive role in family gatherings, I’ve struggled with weight my entire life and tried multiple fad diets along the way.  Raising two active (now adult) children, volunteering in their schools, working full time with no time to make planned healthy meals, and constantly reminded of the culture of my upbringing through family in the Islands, I can relate to every situation and challenge that clients encounter during their busy lives.  I’ve been there!

Sharon Kosofsky 

ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

With over 25 years of experience in nursing and supporting the needs and goals of the health client, I have found my true passion in life as a Certified Holistic Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition 

When my daughter was 6 years old she was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis, an autoimmune disorder that would change her outlook on self-love. Due to my daughter's diagnosis currently having no cure, it became paramount to me that nutrition is key to every individual's health. 

My intention is to support and teach the reversal of these bad habits while creating healthier habits for life. I am proud to be part of Ideal Wellness as its program is NOT a fad diet, but a healthy lifestyle change through knowledge on nutrition. Knowledge is power and through power, we all have the ability to regain control of our lives!!

Chelsea Marie

Red Light Therapy Tech and Administrator

Oregon born, Washington raised.  I moved to Washington when I was 7 and I have loved it ever since, the PNW is one of my favorite places to be. I love spending my time with my family outdoors camping, hiking, kayaking, but most of all the natural beauty all around us.  I love to travel and learn about new cultures and experience other parts of the world.

I found this program in 2013, I was oblivious to how much weight I had gained over the years. The program taught me a lot about myself, how food affects me, habits, patterns, and so much more. I was able to overcome many of these things and have had amazing success on this program. I have coached health and wellness for the past 4 years. I have a passion for helping others create and live their best lives. I am grateful for this journey as I am able to teach my daughter the things I have learned and help her have a better understanding of their limiting beliefs and help them overcome their challenges to achieve their goals. Working at Ideal Wellness has been a dream of mine or the past 3 years, and I am so happy to finally be here, and help make a difference.

Roxanne Lewis

Redlight Therapy Director and Red Light Therapy Tech

My pursuit and dedication to the transformative powers of nutrition began in the fall of 2004 when we discovered my son had autism. Since that time, I have had the good fortune to witness and personally experience numerous life changing transformations.

In 2014 I became a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. During my time as a Health and Meditation Coach, I discovered LipoMelt. The more I learned about the amazing benefits of Red Light and Near Infrared Therapy had to offer, the more convinced I became that I just had to be a part of it.

ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach

I found Ideal Protein in the fall of 2013. My daughter got engaged and one of my first thoughts was how much I will hate the way I look in wedding photos. Though I had struggled with my weight for most of her life, I still never imagined myself heavy at my only daughter’s wedding. My wake-up call wasn’t health or medical issues – it was vanity. It was the reality of that milestone occasion that finally motivated me to change and I was scared. I had failed at every other diet attempt and I wasn’t sure this would be any different.

The difference for me was meeting with a coach on a weekly basis, bringing accountability and encouragement. Not to mention the fact that this self-proclaimed sugar addict also had access to chocolate on a daily basis! I finally found success! I lost 75lbs in a little over 5 months and I wore a cute form fitting dress at my daughter’s wedding! What I appreciate most about this program, 3 years later, is that the Ideal Protein model is always there to help me through the minor weight fluctuations throughout the year. I have never gone back to my original weight because I have implemented the plan and support I need. Be ready to change your life!

Jessica Iverson

ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach and Certified Health Coach

My journey to becoming a health coach began when I was working in the biomedical field and felt stuck, and unhappy with life. I knew that my life was meant to be exciting, and my career rewarding. So, I began seeking what was next for me. I’ve always had an interest in health and wellness, and a desire to help others. I knew there had to be a way to positively impact people’s lives in the health industry that allowed me to be hands on and work directly with people.

Fast-forward a few years, and here I am! I discovered health coaching and obtained my certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Through my studies, I learned how my work/life balance was setting me up for chronic illness, and how much I wanted to be working directly in my community. I’m inspired to help others regain control of their lives to have energy to do what they love, as I am doing the same!

I’ve grown up in Kitsap and love it here! When I’m not working with Ideal Wellness, I’m building my personal coaching business, playing with my dog, riding my horses and enjoying time with my family and friends (if I’m lucky near or on a mountain).

I believe in living your best life possible and am here to give you the tools and resources to do so!

Lisa Chandler

Red Light Therapy Tech

My passion for health and good nutrition began when I was 16. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune illness. I still had hope that I would get better. Then my doctor told me that my illness would only get worse and soon I would be totally bed ridden.  Devastated, I gave up and stayed in bed, day after day. I found comfort in desserts. Sugar certainly did not help my situation, but it helped me to stuff my emotions. Right then I knew I had two choices. I could continue down the path of self-sabotage and speed up my misery. Or I could fight and work to create a healthy lifestyle. I chose to fight. Giving up was only making my emotional and physical health worse.

I started telling myself, “You can do this!”, instead of my usual negative self-talk. It was difficult at first, but I would visualize myself living the life I truly wanted. I got a job at a health food store and I read every book I could. Through my new knowledge, the support of my friends/family, supplements, and good nutrition, I conquered my illness.

I am now a certified Health and Life Coach. I am excited to be working at Ideal Wellness and love coming to work every day. I can’t wait to support clients in finding the fighter inside of them and creating the healthy lifestyle they have always wanted.
