Holly Tobiason
Holly Tobiason
Health Coach

Holly found Ideal Protein in 2016 and successfully lost 40 pounds. She spent 25 years raising kids and being active but didn’t take time for herself. Since losing the weight, she has been able to maintain her healthy weight and create a healthier lifestyle for herself and her family.

She has been a health coach at Aspire Wellness for 3+ years. She has learned so much from attending several Ideal Protein training events, as well as a Beck Institute seminar. Holly loves being creative, whether that’s helping with a meal plan, creating new strategies to achieve weight loss goals, or decorating the office. She enjoys helping people take what they learn from our protocol and slowly building healthier habits to last a lifetime.

Holly is a wife, mother of 7 children, and grandmother of 4 grandchildren. She likes staying busy, whether it’s golfing with the girlfriends, planning a trip with her family or volunteering in the community. She loves to spend time with others but also values investing time in eating well, staying active, and even alone time with a good book and a hot bath.

Rebecca Barkhurst
Rebecca Barkhurst
Health Coach

Rebecca spent most of her life struggling with her weight, from the time she was a teenager. As an adult, having 4 children within 5 years took a toll on her body and she reached an all-time high in her weight. She kept telling herself she could lose weight on her own, but the reality was that she wasn’t succeeding in her attempts. A few friends had seen great success with Ideal Protein and encouraged her to start the protocol. Rebecca was skeptical and resisted at first, but after her continued failure and their continued success, she decided she needed to make a change. She started the Ideal Protein protocol in April 2016 and lost 80 pounds in 6 months! Rebecca felt so much better about herself and was able to get out and play with her children because of her increased energy. She became a health coach in 2017 after becoming so passionate about the protocol. Rebecca is so thankful for all that Ideal Protein has added to her life and she loves helping others to get healthier and improve their quality of life.

Rebecca lives in Skagit Valley with her 4 children and has been a part of the community for 25 years. She loves to travel to new places and go on road trips with her children. She enjoys staying active with hiking, kayaking, playing tennis, etc. She also homeschools her kids part-time so she stays quite busy. In her “spare” time, she enjoys photography, writing, scrapbooking, and making memories with her friends and family.

Jill has been a health coach at Aspire Wellness since April of 2018. She worked in health education for 12 years prior to joining our office. She has been on the weight loss rollercoaster her entire life until she lost 55 pounds on the protocol and has maintained it since. This protocol has felt like a miracle! She enjoys the connection she gets to have with her clients on the journey of life transformation through food and supporting them as they change their lives. She is also a group fitness instructor at two local gyms and feels privileged to share health and fitness with her clients.

Jill grew up in New York state and moved to Mount Vernon her senior year of high school. She lives in Conway with her husband, 2 sons, and 2 dogs. She loves to read, organize, and hang out with friends and family. She can often be found shopping consignment looking for great finds and styling her friends.  Fashion/ styling is one of her favorite hobbies – when you need a new wardrobe she is always up to help!

Valerie Hockett
Valerie Hockett
Health Coach

Healthy and strong is the actual meaning to her name, Valerie. It makes sense why she has enjoyed finding new ways to improve her health and why she loves to teach others how they can do the same. When Valerie found out about health coaching, she jumped on the bandwagon to enroll in the Health Coach Institute (HCI). Once she was done with her schooling, she quickly realized she still had a lot to learn and desired to find a place she could go to get in as much experience as possible. That’s when Valerie was referred by a friend to visit Aspire Wellness! Once she joined the team, she knew she was in the perfect place to grow and work with a wonderful staff and amazing clients.

Health coaching is Valerie’s passion but it’s not the only thing she does with her time. When she’s not coaching and it’s the winter season, she is usually decorating her home for the holidays, doing house chores, or shopping at as many thrift stores as possible with her mother-in-law. During the summer months, she gets active with kayaking, camping, hiking, gardening, DIY projects, and going to as many parks with her dog, Bristol. Throughout the year she tries to maintain family time, takes walks with her dog and husband, trains in Ju-Jitsu, does yoga, cooks up new recipes, and spends time with friends. It’s all within good balance because there are days when Valerie does absolutely NOTHING and she loves it!!!
