Luncheon to focus on healthy choices

Deana Christofferson and Michele Milani Sahm, local health and wellness educators and entrepreneurs are speaking at a Women’s Empowerment Luncheon on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Christofferson is the original “Mom on a Mission,” working to help educate families on why it is so important to make healthy food choices in a fast-paced world promoting de-natured, processed food.

Her background is in the health and fitness industry, where she worked for more than 18 years as a certified fitness counselor/personal trainer and aerobics instructor.

Christofferson has been a student of nutrition since 1982 and has been a sought after lecturer on the topics of health and nutrition both nationally and internationally since 1996. She has been a national marketing director with NSA since 1999, representing Juice Plus+, clinically proven and most scientifically researched whole food in the world.

She is a Dr. Sears certified lean coach, teaching classes to parents on how shop smarter, by learning to make healthy choices for their family’s diet. She is also a certified diet and lifestyle intervention coach through the Wellness Forum

Milani Sahm is the founder of Healthy Styles Inc., a health and vitality company that educates through live events and gatherings, coaches one on one and also trains other wellness entrepreneurs who are interested in the simple and personal approach to health and greater wellness.

With a love for live foods, the culinary arts and a heart to help people live healthier lives, she is natural at guiding people in the direction of greater health and well-being.

Her specialty topic is “balance” and her signature style comes from the foundation of inner and outer “simplicity.”

These luncheons have inspired women to establish a network of support throughout the region.

This event provides women an opportunity to get together and identify their goals, shape their dreams of living to their potential in the realm of possibilities, and to plan how to take care of themselves, support their families, their local businesses and grow as a community.

This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and build a network of support for charting our destiny, both personally and professionally within a supportive and interdependent community according to organizers.

The topics up for discussion include: divorce, disability, debt, death and last, but not least, dreams.

Cost for the program and luncheon is $10. This event is open to any woman who wishes to create a healthy sustainable livelihood that balances personal goals with family and community.

There will be a drawing for all the guests that attend this event.
