P.E.I. nutritionist Rachelle Wood is celebrating her eighth year in business in an environmentally-friendly way.
Wood’s award-winning business, SeeResults, been made almost completely paperless. Wood has also opened a second location in Moncton.
SeeResults is an online weight loss program that allows clients to simply log in to their computers to see their customized weekly meal plans and shopping lists. Clients can also view recipes, document goals and accomplishments and communicate with Wood.
SeeResults is currently being used by Canadian Nutrition Professionals in Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
With the success of SeeResults, Wood has recently transitioned all of her in-office clients to the online program. Aside from in-take forms used when a new client signs up with Wood, her office is now completely paperless.
“I’ve always enjoyed sitting down and meeting with clients face-to-face, and I continue to do so with many of the people I counsel for their nutritional needs. But, because SeeResults works so well, putting all of my weight loss clients on the program allows me to take on more clients who really need that additional in-office counselling like high-endurance athletes, people suffering from eating disorders, and other specialized cases,” said Wood.
The transition to moving all her weight loss clients online has also allowed Wood to expand her business into other markets with the opening of her new practice in downtown Moncton at 795 Main Street in Moncton.
Wood is also directing a tour group to Iceland from June 1622, direct from Halifax. Wood fell in love with this health-conscience country during her first visit in 2010. She’s been back once since then, and on her upcoming third trip she’s bringing a group of Maritimers with her.
A graduate of the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, Wood says she has helped Prince Edward Islanders lose more than 100,000 pounds since she opened her weight loss practice in 2005. In 2009, Wood won the P.E.I. Business Women’s Association’s Emerging Business Award. Then in 2011, she was awarded the BDC Young Entrepreneur of the Year for P.E.I.
Wood is an active member of several organizations, including the CSNN Alumni, P.E.I. Business Women’s Association, and the Moncton and Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerces. She volunteers her time for several causes including speaking to community groups like Overeaters Anonymous and she fundraised to fight hunger and cycled PEI Tip2Tip4Africa in 2012.
