The beautiful Teresa Powell is our featured model for the Fall 2023 Capsule Collection and good friend of Melony Huber, LPC Founder. We had the chance to sit down with her and ask some questions about her career journey and experience modeling for La Peony Clothing.
"Beauty for me begins within, on a cellular level. When we take care of our health and create the balance our body continuously strives for, we exude beauty, strength, and confidence on the outside. Treating patients for over 20 years, my passion shifted to treating clients’ underlying conditions, not just the symptoms. My passion is centered around prevention and longevity which includes the biopsychosocial aspect of each individual. While managing the thoracic practice for over 16 years, I understood with the advancement of medicine we need to offer more to the client. I’ve been studying Integrative Medicine since 2018, and obtained my master’s degree from USC as a Family Nurse Practitioner."
As a board member for CHOC Glass Slipper Guild, she volunteers her time to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Dedicated to the advancement of healthcare technologies, Teresa is also a member of the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine, Functional Medicine of Orange County, Southern Medical Association, California Nurse Practitioner Association, American Association of Nurse Practitioners, American Nurses Association, and The Academy of Preventative & Innovative Medicine by Worldlink Medical.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself? How did you get involved in hormone replacement, genetics, & aesthetics?
Women are overlooked, disregarded, symptomatically dismissed in healthcare research. When women’s research has been done, it’s heavily faulted, and heavily dismissed in the medical field in regards to optimizing hormones. I am excited to be in a field with continued research proving the benefits of hormone replacement is vital for our health, wellness, quality of life, and mental health.
Epigenetics: Empowers my clients understanding of their genetic makeup. How to prevent or subdue specific genes from creating chronic illness and/or for an example (current weightloss GLP-1 trend). It’s important to understand your genetic makeup and how optimize your health.
Aesthetics: I’ve been doing for years and I compliment and enhance beauty. I don’t change appearances. Aesthetics are a very private topic that I respect and it’s nice to see the clients instant gratification.
The amount of time and research I do everyday to make sure clients have the most up-to-date knowledge.
1) PIMCO: I was the assistant to the trade-room for the founders Bill Gross and Frank Rabinovitch. Two brilliant men!
2) My decision to become a nurse and leave the ‘fun’ corporate world under Scott Purcell /Founder and CEO of Fortress Trust (Custodial for Crypto).
3) The love for my two children gave me the strength to pursue a path of innovative health and wellness and to be able to spend more time with my children.
The whole team was incredibly patient with me and created a fun and fabulous day. I was so impressed with the photographer, Dimitry Loiseau and makeup artist, Eric.
