Getting to know your coaches...

We are a mix of lifelong Ballard and Seattle residents in addition to a “transplant” 20 years ago from the east coast. We have 7 children among us and 8 grandchildren. Our hobbies include; gardening, knitting, cooking, boating, family time, scuba diving, home remodel projects, movies and travelling.

Our other professions include being an opera singer, human resources professional, event planner and marketing professional.

Between us we have lost over 200 pounds on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method, over 100 inches and we each reduced our body fat percentage by 12-18%!*

Although every client has private one on one coaching sessions, we pride ourselves on taking a group approach here at Ideal Weight Loss Ballard. We like to get to know all of our clients so you have access to all of us to answer questions, offer suggestions/tips and help in any way we can. We find coaching not only rewarding but a privilege to be able guide individuals through their journey and be a part of helping people achieve their personal goals.

Getting to know Dr. Brandon...

DoctorbrandonI’ve been in private practice since 1993. I am a board certified OB/Gyn and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons. I have focused my practice on overall women’s health and aesthetics for the past 5 years. I’m married with two teenage daughters and an Australian Shepherd named Freckles. I live in Seattle. I was trained at the University of Washington School of Medicine. I started Ballard Women’s Health in 2008, a private practice dedicated to women’s health. My areas of interest include prevention, current treatment strategies for abnormal or heavy periods, contraception, and management of abnormal Paps, and management of the menopause and the peri-menopause. I generally have a holistic approach to health maintenance. I keep my patients up to date on current information in women’s health.

Why Ideal Protein? I had been attempting for years to bring a weight management program into our clinic. We tried a few times but it never really caught on. Then I was introduced to Ideal Protein and once I attended my first open house at an existing clinic. It all made perfect, scientific sense to me and I immediately knew I had found what I had been searching for. We have been running Ideal Protein out of my medical clinic for two and half years and I couldn’t be happier with all the good our team has had in a goal to improve overall health with weight loss.
