Dr. Lexi Lain, ND, is on LKNConnect’s Advisory Board and is a naturopathic physician who coaches professionals and entrepreneurs around the world on how to transform their health so they can reclaim their lives.

“Taking care of yourself is the success formula to reaching your full potential in business and in life, but it all starts with awareness. Most root causes of dis-ease stem from how we are living our daily lives. Without awareness, we can easily ignore the foundations to health which is a path that can lead us to burnout, exhaustion, and stress. I believe that if I can educate, inspire, and motivate busy professionals to take care of themselves, their new behaviors can impact the health of their teams, families, and community.” — Dr. Lexi Lain, CEO and Naturopathic Doctor
