Timothy Logemann, MD - Medical Director

Tim LogemannAfter 20 years in private practice in cardiology I have seen way too often, firsthand, the devastation obesity and its related problems bring to patients’ lives. I have seen people struggle mightily against this problem, often with limited results despite all their efforts and energy. So I was very excited to work with our great staff to bring this program to life for the benefit of our community here in central Wisconsin. The results that we see and smiles and hugs we receive truly make my day.

Kelly O'Heron, RD - Program Director

Kelly O'HeronI grew up in Wausau with two younger brothers and parents who always made nutrition a priority. As I began college at the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County I was excited to learn that my passion for nutrition could be a career. I transferred to UW-Madison to pursue Dietetics and have now been a practicing Registered Dietitian for 8 years. During this time I have received certification in adult, adolescent and childhood weight management. My passion in nutrition has always been geared toward weight loss because it can change the whole person by improving the body and mind, reducing needs for medications and increasing quality of life.

Working with Ideal Protein I get can tell patients that, due to a weight loss, they are able to stop medications that they have been on for years. Weight loss has a very powerful and positive impact in our lives and I feel very fortunate to be involved with the program.

Ann M. - Health Coach

Ashley S. I began my wellness journey at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where I stumbled through many different majors before finding the perfect match for me. I knew Health Promotion and Wellness was the right choice when I found out that I could take all the aspects I’m passionate about and merge them into one. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science from Stevens Point in December 2015. I was beyond ecstatic to take a position with Aspirus as a Nutritional Resource Health Coach in May 2016 to continue this journey. Working as a health coach, I have been able to see others find their very own wellness journeys. I love being excited for my clients when they’ve reached a goal they’ve had in mind. I believe that having a goal brings out so many other great characteristics that you never knew you had inside. It allows you to take control of your life and center yourself when other things might lead you astray. I am grateful that Ideal Weight Solutions has given me this opportunity to help guide others to reach that goal.
