I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

Welcome to YOUR transformation! We are Dennis Baker and Dr. Michael Smith, and we have assisted thousands of people in their journey to lifelong transformation. We understand the struggles many go through, and we would be honored to partner with you. After several years with high blood pressure and diabetes and trying to lose weight, Dennis found Optavia, lost 37 pounds, and changed the trajectory of his health. Dr. Michael is a board-certified internal medicine physician and WebMD's Chief Medical Director. We realized we had a powerful gift we needed to share. Dennis also has a passion for healthy cooking and Dr. Michael is a certified personal trainer. Dr. Michael also lives with an autoimmune condition and has great passion for helping others take control of their health through healthy habits. We believe strongly in the power of coaching and look forward to working closely with you to identify obstacles and bust through them. There is hope. We can do this together.
