Martina Gadberry, Clinical Assistant. "I have enjoyed working in health care for 25 years. After having 3 children, I found myself overweight and unhealthy. I wish I had been able to find a place like PCW while I was on my weight loss journey. PCW has not only inspired me to eat healthy, but also how to help others overcome their unhealthy eating habits."
Chris Gadberry is a Life Coach and Billing Director for PCW
Since I was a little girl, when people would ask, "What do you want to do when you grow up?" I would say, "I want to have 3 kids and help people." I have been so blessed to be able to do both! I believe that this team is one of the biggest reasons our participants have such success and to be a part of this team has been a very rewarding experience." Chris is always there to talk to you and help you keep your feet planted on the path that leads to the healthier, happier you that you have been searching for.
