Welcome to Well Mind Ways. I’m Susan Skinner, a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, NBC- HWC, specializing in brain health (dementia prevention), meditation with mindful movement, and physical activity for adults 40+.

If you’ve experienced brain fog, memory lapses, and you just don’t feel as “sharp” as you used to, I’d like to help you regain your brain. Together, we will explore the best path for you to achieve goals related to healthy cognitive function, optimal physical performance, and clear mental focus.

  • Educate clients on health, lifestyle and wellbeing topics
