Aiming to provide a link between conventional medical care and holistic treatments, Beyond Basics Health Coaching helps its clients by offering nutritional tips and support. This personalized guidance begins with a one-on-one session, which allows one of the organization's nurses, dieticians, or nutritionists to meet with each person individually and discuss long-term goals.

"If you make it, you will taste it" is the motto founders Julie Fabing Burleson and Suzy Vinson Nettles envisioned when they created Young Chefs Academy.

With centers in more than 10 states, Young Chefs Academy enriches growing minds ages 3–18 with engaging cooking classes, camps, and birthday parties that impart valuable life skills, such as self-reliance and how to trick a younger sibling into doing the dishes.
