About Us

Welcome to Positive Transitions

Avril – Wellness Coach/Owner

It’s not just a job, it’s a lifestyle!

I started my own journey with Ideal Protein back in 2014 and lost 25lbs. I couldn’t believe how easy the protocol was to follow, the best part? I could cook one meal for my family of 4!  I was so taken with program that I started “coaching” friends for fun (some of them called it lecturing!) I loved sharing recipes, tips and tricks to help them reach their goals, getting together to support each other and then it became clear. I needed to get involved directly with Ideal Protein and help others based on my passion I had for this lifestyle. 

In 2016 I took over Positive Transitions from my coach, and since then have evolved the business, offering other complimenting wellness services.  It goes to show you how one decision, one phone call, can completely change the path you are on.

I love my job and am so grateful for all the amazing clients I have been lucky enough to introduce to this life-changing program. Take that first step and reach out today! 

I look forward to meeting you! 


Joanna – Nutritional Consultant

In 2012, I found myself at an all-time low, or when it comes to weight struggles, an all-time high. Weight had always been a struggle for me, but this time it was different. I hated the way I looked, I hated the way I felt, and overall, I kind of hated myself. There had to be a change. Little did I know, walking into this little Ideal Protein Clinic, that I was about to have a change of a lifetime.

After much success on the protocol and losing 90 pounds, I wanted this to be more than a diet, I wanted to do this to be my life. In 2014, I was trained at my first Ideal Protein Clinic and became a coach. This was when the magic happened. Helping people achieve their goals became something I lived for. Every pound they lost was another pound I lost. Inspiring, teaching, coaching, this was where it was at and so life continued to flourish.

In 2016 I went to school at Elevated Learning Academy earning my Diploma in Science of Nutrition, becoming certified in Nutritional Counseling and from there have never looked back.
I’m so excited for the opportunity to work alongside you and help you achieve your goals.


Connie – Wellness Coordinator

I am born and raised in Calgary – a true Calgarian!
I had taken a brief break from the workforce but quickly realized I needed more.
I joined the Positive Transitions team in 2020 as the Red Light Therapy Technician and although my background was not in the Wellness industry, I have always been dedicated to my own health and have truly enjoyed learning and educating others to live their best life. 

I love being part of this team and look forward to meeting many more of you.

See you soon!


Dea- – Recipe Consultant/Health & Wellness Coach

I have been a health and wellness coach for 6 years with my main focus as a recipe creator with low carb low sugar recipes. In 2019 I published the first of 3 eBooks, then a printed low carb recipe book that is used by a wide variety of clients and clinics across North America. I continue to create recipes weekly and showcase them online. I love presenting at retreats and workshops to assist in healthy lifestyles, highlights were presenting in Seattle and Los Gatos California.

I love to present unique recipes and prepared food to clients and clinics. When I’m not in the kitchen I’m passionate about whole food supplements that align with health and beauty. I’m also a licensed cosmetologist and still enjoy time spent working in my salon on family and friends. I reside in Medicine Hat Alberta with my husband and 3 kids that truly love to be fed well. We love to camp and fish and enjoy the mountains. I look forward to sharing recipes with you no matter what stage of health goals, and continued collaboration with coaches and clients to achieve success.

Much love and gratitude as we continue writing the chapters of our life stories
