Hi!

I'm Jason Dawson

Ui/Ux & Print Designer

Meet Leslie Lipsius!


Upon graduating from the University of Georgia in 2016, Leslie began working at Alkaline Wellness Center. As she was mentored by Dr. Connie, she found a new career path.  


Leslie was inspired by the Alkaline Method , and as she witnessed the healing transformation of Alkaline patients, she knew she wanted to learn more about the method.  She was previously on the path to become Registered Dietitian, however, as Leslie concurrently shadowed dietitians at an Atlanta hospital, she realized the clinical environment was not the atmosphere in which she wanted to pursue a career. She witnessed the limits of conventional medicine, with its focus on sick care, and not healthcare.


She committed to learning under Dr. Connie, and has completed her Alkaline Yoga Teacher Training, HeartMath Practitioner Certification, and Alkaline Method ™ Coach training.  


She is excited to work with patients one-on-one to help them achieve new goals in 2018.  

WELCOME


Hello, I'm Leslie Lipsius

I love to be active: hiking, yoga, tumbling, and strength training.


Nutrition is a passion of mine, as I believe food has a tremendous effect on our health.


But I also believe balance is key, therefore I occasionally enjoy foods I LOVE, like Thai food and all sorts of desserts!


I am a recovering perfectionist, and through the Alkaline Yoga Training, I've learned to love myself even more and realize that we are all a work in progress.  :-)
