Our Story / Our Team
LifeStyles INFOCUS™ is a woman owned, family business based in San Diego that serves as a Wellness Solution for companies, organizations, and communities both locally and nationwide. After spending years interacting with parents and families while owning a motor skill development gymnastics program, my mother (Toni) and I (Jessica) realized that the single best way to educate and build trust with a parent, a child, was face to face – to be able to see the whites of their eyes. We have both worked in the health and wellness industry for decades – she via food and healing and more recently training to be a certified CHOPRA educated Ayurvedic lifestyles teacher, and myself having worked in the biotech industry researching and viewing disease from the very micro level. Together we believe that each person has the power to make real changes in their own lives – but not without a little help. That’s where LSI comes in. Let us bring solutions to you, at your place of work, where you spend the most of your waking hours, so that you can take charge of your life today. “How would your life be different if…You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day…You pay attention to what you feed your mind, your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today.” ― Steve Maraboli, The Power of One We have worked with over 200+ companies and 500+ wellness providers nationwide over the past decade with three initiatives in mind: EDUCATE, EMPOWER, and ENHANCE. EDUCATE: We connect health and wellness resources to corporations and the community in order to educate individuals about living a healthier lifestyle. EMPOWER: Our goal is to empower individuals to take charge of their health, both physically and mentally, which in turn directly impacts a company’s bottom line. ENHANCE: It’s our mission to enable our clients, vendors, and the community to positively enhance their lives and personal well being.
