Tricia Fogle Director:
I have enjoyed living in Western North Carolina for the past 13 years. I came after earning a Bachelors degree from the University of Utah in 2003 and an associates degree from Dixie College in St. George, UT.
With over 12 years of combined experience working with youth in Outdoor Wilderness Treatment programs and with youth & adults in Experiential Education, I have developed an appreciation for the "aha" moments when people of all ages gain deeper insight into their mind, body, and spirit. To Life of Energy Retreats I bring you my education, experience and desire to live better, live healthier, & live more purposefully.
I love spending time with my husband and two children and I strive to care for them with the best health and wellness methods available. More recently, my path has followed my son who has ADHD. I continue to learn and research on his behalf since I believe there are more options out there for him to heal and/or decrease his symptoms. I feel something is lacking when my childs regular doctors are unable to really give more options other than medications, which usually do not have good side effects. I believe in being open and aware of more wholistic choices. I worry about the health statitistics in our western society re obesity, hear disease, depression, etc. And I worry about the food supply and toxins/ chemicals in our enviroment. How can I protect or help my family?!? The rise of many environmental factors and toxins, and evan trauma effects many of us, I believe in having a doctor who has a more wholistic approach. I have always believed in basic whole foods, and physical activity and clean living. I credit my mother for inspiring my life-long commitment to health and nutrition. It was in her kitchen that I learned about healthy foods and the benefits of growing a garden. I am grateful to both my parents for creating opportunities to live in beautiful Southern Oregon and Southern Utah where experiencing diverse cultures and climates inspired my appetite for greater experiences, traveling, and learning.
I am committed to continually growing and learning and sharing as much knowlege as possible with other parents and families. I believe in combining all the science & research and healthy good things together to have a healthy life & expereince. I feel deeply grateful and honored by those who choose to experience the journey with me and share our paths.
