ABOUT THE ORGANIZER
Stacey Funt, MD, NBC-HWC
Hi! I am the founder of Lifestyle Health Adventures with a mission to create soulful group adventures based on the tenets of lifestyle medicine. I am a part time practicing radiologist, national board certified health/wellness coach, CTI trained Iife coach, global adventure traveller, and mother to 19 year old boy/girl twins. My favorite aspects of coaching are at the deeper level of identifying what we each value and desire most, becoming conscious of our thoughts and beliefs, and creating shared experiences that inspire and connect us to our core, and each other.
I also love world travel, hiking and a new adventure! I am a creator and the itinerary becomes my expression. My favorite recent trip experiences are trekking on the Laugavegur Trail in Iceland with my husband and meditating with buddhist monks and bathing the elephants in Thailand with my daughter. I feel most connected to myself and awake to the world around me when I am in nature.
I am so excited to for this trip as we move our bodies, play in nature, relax and have fun together in gorgeous Southern Utah. I look forward to meeting you!
