    Teamwork has a direct impact on performance

    A note from Annie

    ``As a former Division 1 athlete, my performance relied heavily on teamwork efforts from coaches, peers, teachers, trainers, family, and my own personal input. That’s a whole lot of energy! With this idea of a team environment being applied into my daily life as a busy-working Entrepreneurial Mom, I developed our Prescribing Partners Program to recreate the essence of teamwork. This program brings together an intimate group of personally curated, and highly Certified Educated Experts in the field of Nutrition and Food Medicine across the country. I look forward to growing and sharing this community of industry experts with you all to support Food As Medicine through accredited recipes, products, and thoughtful conversations about navigating Nutrition!`` ~ Annie
