The Care of You is about more than just giving you resources pertaining to common elements of your daily health. It's also meant to be a very valuable resource to readers to help you create and maintain a healthy lifestyle because a healthy lifestyle leads to a better state both physically and mentally.
The Care of You was started by three health professionals who originally met in college during their undergraduate studies back in the early 2000s. With more than 30 years of experience between them, each of them brings a different background to the table, as all three are involved in different fields of health care, giving The Care of You great perspective from all angles. While each of them contribute to The Care of You remotely across the United States, they're constantly connected to make the site as resourceful and valuable to readers as it can possibly be.
Jeff Barnes, originally from Boulder, Colorado, and now residing in Silver Springs, Maryland, makes a living working as a sports nutritionist. In his role, he works with a wide array of clients to advise them on everything from what foods to eat to how nutrition is affecting their health. Having been a sports nutritionist for just more than a decade now, Jeff has worked with athletes from all over the United States, including those from the National Football League (NFL), the National Basketball Association (NBA), Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Hockey League (NHL), and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). It's not surprising considering his line of work, but when Barnett isn't working with clients, he can often be found an hour up the road in Baltimore seeing one of his two favorite sports teams play, the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore Orioles. He's married to his best friend, Layla, and the two are the proud parents of three daughters.
Rose Wallace, a physical therapist born and raised in Neptune Beach, Florida, has several years of experience in her field under her belt. She's always had a passion for helping others and found her calling to eventually be a physical therapist at a very young age, when her youngest sister suffered a serious sports injury and she did all she could to help her every step of the way in her rehabilitation. As a mother of three teenage sons, Rose certainly has her hands full when she's away from her practice and The Care of You. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, kayaking, and just going for a long walk in her hometown of Neptune Beach.
Andrew Schmidt contributes to The Care of You aside his career as a mental health counselor. One of the areas that he specializes in is working with clients with eating disorders, trying to get their lives back on track both physically and mentally. Andrew was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, but now currently makes his home in Denver, Colorado, and has an unmatched passion for hitting the slopes. He's both a husband and father and also has two English bulldogs, Link and Luigi, that he couldn't imagine life without. Those who know Andrew personally consider him to be the biggest fan of the St. Louis Cardinals that they've ever met in their life due to his extreme passion for both baseball and the team.
After years of chatting about their work online, Jeff Barnes, Rose Wallace, and Andrew Schmidt have come together to make The Care of You a reality. From daily nutrition and the lowdown on vitamins to exercising and preventing sickness like the flu, The Care of You hopes to be a resource for readers around the world.
