Shane Wetzel

Administrative Support Specialist

I am on a constant transformational journey of growth, for my own personal development, and for those enlightened to take a similar path. Being on the team at SAFM is a perfect match to bring my skills and passion to grow with a like minded community. I have 20 years of management, business ownership and teaching experience that encompasses coast to coast in the US, Japan, and Rome. I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with my wife and two children. My goal at SAFM is to support all the students leveling up their skills which leads to the ultimate goal of healing our society.


Mohita Patel

Student Experience Coach, Huddle Facilitator and Forum Mentor

I am truly passionate about helping people be empowered to take their health into their own hands! Having personally navigated my own chronic illness, I’m thankful for the opportunity to now guide others in their own path to better health. Likewise, I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to be part of the SAFM team and to see people become empowered by their knowledge and learning experience here. Functional Medicine changed my life and I can only hope that I am able to share the wonders of what I was gifted with, an incredible tribe of like-minded practitioners!


Kathy Connell, CHC, AFMC

Student Experience Coach and Huddle Facilitator

As someone enormously blessed by the gifts of information and education that have empowered me to embrace Better health and well being, I am overflowing with gratitude and passion to share the bounty with my fellow human beings. The opportunity to be part of the SAFM team allows me to share the faucet of information and support that was given to me. I have become part of a loving family of brilliant and loving practitioners. Its the gift that keeps on giving! Indeed my cup “runneth over”.

Cheryl Wooster

Student Experience Coach

From working in corporate wellness, to “disease management”, to my own practice, Balanced Bodies, I’ve worn many different hats. Each of them helping to shape who I am and what my practice looks like today.  Since embarking on my journey with SAFM I have not only found the knowledge to truly transform clients lives, but arguably more importantly, I found the community as well.  I feel so humbled and fortunate to be part of the SAFM team, helping students to feel the warmth, support and guidance that was so generously flooded to me.
