Tawnya and Chris Wilkinson are very passionate about their fitness, and are passionate about helping others live better lives. In 2007, while helping others achieve their health goals through personal training and wellness coaching, they began dreaming of launching their own business together where they could help more people. Within weeks Tawnya and Chris had found the opportunity they were looking for. Blending a passion for helping others with elder care turned out to be a natural fit for this couple. Since starting their own award winning Nurse Next Door franchise in 2008, Tawnya and Chris have worked hard to continue helping others while uniting a team of people who love working together. Living their core values each and every day in their personal lives and business has created a powerful synergy. ‘Make a difference in the lives of others’ and ‘admire people’ are two of those core values that guide them and help their personal and business relationships grow.
