Meet our Team

the foundation of my business

Meet Sam Wissel

Sam currently assists behind the scenes.  Here is a little bit more about her.

Sam is from Lynn Indiana and has a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition as well as a minor in Exercise Science. She attended college at The University of Saint Francis. When I asked her why she wanted to be a part of my online coaching team, this was her response – “I want to be a coach for SJF Health Coaching because I have a passion for helping people succeed! I want to be there step by step guiding you in your nutrition & fitness journey. Furthermore, I love the motto “Small changes lead to big results.”

Sam is most excited to build a relationship with her clients to help them lead a healthier lifestyle. She wants them to know she is right alongside them through their nutrition/fitness journey! She will be their biggest cheerleader & number one fan! 

Meet Amy

Hi! I’m Amy Parnell, Sara Jo Fountain’s assistant.

I live in Dukedom, TN and have lived in northwest Tennessee for most of my life. My husband and I have seven children and three grandchildren. Prior to working at Sara Jo Fountain Health Coaching, I was a legal transcriber and a full-time stay-at-home mom plus an advocate for substance abuse prevention and drug endangered children.

Now, at Sara Jo Fountain Health Coaching, I take care of anything behind the scenes that Coach SJ needs done (the techy office stuff that I really enjoy) to enable her more time to spend with her clients and focus on helping them achieve their health and fitness goals. I’m also always available to do whatever I can to help answer any questions and offer support as well.

In addition to being Sara Jo’s assistant, I am also a challenge participant. I have faced the same hurdles and share the same objectives as many of her clients. To walk side by side with other challengers and then to get to be a small part of their accomplishments and the change in their lives is just one of the many reasons I love my job! I am honored to be a member of the Sara Jo Fountain Health Coaching team and work for a woman who truly cares about helping others and to be a part of that process.
