Hi! I'm Doctor Emily Vinzant

Doctor Mom E

I am proud to be equally Weight Loss Coach, MD, and M-O-M. When you are a Doctor, everyone wonders about your credentials. Let’s get that out of the way first:


  • University of Kansas – Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Secondary Education
  • Saint George’s University School of Medicine – Doctor of Medicine
  • University of Kansas School of Medicine – Residency in Family Medicine
  • American Board of Family Medicine – Certification
  • American Board of Obesity Medicine – Certification


My knowledge of the FOODS from my medical training is top level. 

Here’s my secret, though. There always seemed to be a missing component in the medical weight loss process. I found myself asking again and again: Why are these Moms (the ME’s of the world) who are successful in every other area of life unable to lose weight and keep it off? 

Then I discovered the answers to the “FOOD DRAMA” also known life and weight loss coaching. That passion took me down a special path to:

  • Life Coach Certification | The Life Coach School | March 2020
  • Weight Coach Certification | The Life Coach School | March 2020

So, now for the good stuff.

I am also the mother of a 3-year-old daughter, Eliza, and an 18-year-old daughter, Ella. I have 3 step-sons (Austin (24), Alec (22), and Adam (16)), a husband (Brian), a yellow lab named Ace and a cat named Grogu. And my life has been anything but simple. I was pregnant with my daughter my first semester of medical school, spent my daughter’s first birthday on an island just destroyed by a hurricane, and struggled through life as a divorced, single-mom, medical resident. Through it all, I kept gaining weight.

I met my husband, moved to the country, and we had a baby the week our youngest turned 13. I lost the weight, became a coach, and learned how to help all those Mamas like me do the same. I really do love my life, my family, and helping other Moms like me lose the weight for good.

I’ve found the answer for Moms to that common question:

"How can I lose the weight and keep it off?"
