We had the good fortune of connecting with Carol Jensen-Linton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Carol, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
That each person I work with is an individual with their own unique needs and wants. I ask appropriate questions to find out what they are and then help devise a plan to help them get what they want.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
After graduating from the University of Nebraska and later Tulane, I was a social worker working mainly with pregnant women. That was the beginning of my interest in nutrition and the role it played in wellness. Fast forward 20 years, I was introduced to Juice Plus+. It was a simple way to add fruits and veggies to my diet. I appreciated that it was backed up by independent medical research published in peer reviewed journals. I started noticing positive changes in my own health so I decided to share the information with others. I saw Juice Plus+ as part of the solution for a healthier lifestyle but I wanted more. I had always loved how Dr. Bill Sears explained complex concepts in easy to understand ways. I decided to enroll in his training through his Wellness Institute and became a Certified Health Coach. I love helping people find simple solutions to improve their health and their lifestyle. By listening to them, we set up a plan that works for them.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First, I would take them on a golf cart ride around Peachtree City showing them all of the interesting sights along the trails, ending up at Grinds and Wine, my favorite restaurant. They have a great wine list and I love their shrimp tacos and hummus salad! Then I would take them up to Atlanta to see the Aquarium, CNN, and the MLK Historic site/museum. Depending on their interest, we may go to the College Football Hall of Fame, the Zoo, World of Coke, and Fernbank. If they want history, we would go to the Atlanta History Center and have lunch at the Swan Coach House. Two other places I like to take them to eat – the top of the Westin so they can see all around Atlanta and Two Urban Licks because of its unique decor and awesome Salmon Chips.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Dr. Bill Sears of the Sears Wellness Institute.
