Stephanie has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Franciscan University and has worked as an RN since 1992. In her career, she has directed Heart Failure Chronic Disease Management programs to prevent heart failure hospital readmissions and coordinated therapies for end-stage Heart Failure patients bridging to artificial hearts and heart transplants. For decades, she has witnessed first hand the devastating effects of the Standard American Diet on her patients’ quality of life and life expectancy. ​ In her quest to seek a more natural way to promote health, Stephanie started Natural State Microgreens in 2019 and began selling this superfood to restaurants and at farmers’ markets. Ironically, around this same time, her husband Paul developed diabetes. They switched to a Whole Food Plant Based Diet and within 4 months, Paul’s diabetes was reversed and they both lost 20#. From then on, Stephanie was hooked! After becoming certified in Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell, her goal now is to provide education and support to people who wish to treat, improve, and even reverse preventable chronic diseases and transform their lives through a Whole Foods Plant-Based lifestyle. ​ Stephanie offers a comprehensive online, self-paced “21 Day Plant-Based Challenge Course” with a focus on chronic disease reversal pinpointing Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and weight loss, as well an entire class addressing the ever-popular question “Where Do You Get Your Protein?” She also periodically offers this course live in various central Arkansas venues as well as through a local non-profit educational consortium for seniors in Little Rock. https://www.naturalstateplantbased.com/ for more information Stephanie provides individualized coaching services to help clients clarify their health goals, individualize their WFPBD based on their situation, and facilitate their ability to navigate the healthcare system.
