brendaBRENDA, Ideal Protein Manger and IT Manager

I joined Vista Family Health in 1995. Since then, I have done pretty much every job here. I am a board certified practice manager and in 2007, I completed my accreditation with MGMA as a Certified Medical Practice Executive. Although keeping up with the many changes in health technology takes a good portion of my time, I love managing our Ideal Protein program.

In December 2009, I started the Ideal Protein weight loss program. I was unhealthy, overweight and sick and tired of being sick and tired. Ideal Protein changed my life! I lost 88 pounds in six months! In April 2010, I established the Ideal Protein program at Vista with only 5 patients. Less than two years later, Vista has grown to be one of the most successful Ideal Protein clinics in the Northwest with more than 25,000 pounds lost.

Nothing is more rewarding to me than helping patients reach their goals and get their lives back. Having successfully completed the program, I know what it takes to get results. I understand how hard it is. However, there is no amount of chocolate in the world that would ever make me want to go back. This is my last diet ever!


Casey EditCASEY, Ideal Protein Coach

I love being a part of the Ideal Protein weight loss team at Vista Family Health!  After reaching my own weight loss goal of losing over 40 lbs on the Ideal Protein protocol, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help and encourage patients to meet their personal weight loss goals, as well.

I believe in the Ideal Protein weight loss diet. Unlike so many diets I had tried in the past, the Ideal Protein protocol is medically designed, scientifically based, professionally supervised and FDA approved.  It really works!  It worked for me, and I have the privilege of watching it work for others every day.

It is exciting to be part of a process that is truly life-changing for so many people.  It is my joy and honor to walk through your weight loss journey with you, to help guide and support you every step of the way.

Vista has been my family’s health care provider since 1995 because of the high quality of care and attentiveness that the staff and doctors provide.

I joined Vista Family Health in 2011 as a diet coach for the Ideal Protein weight loss program. As an Ideal Protein coach, I strive to provide excellent and friendly service to our patients. I have seen the program work in so many lives and truly love watching our patients melt away week after week. I understand how difficult weight loss can be. My goal is to support you, encourage you and sustain you during your time with us until you reach your target weight loss goal.



Rae EditRAE, Ideal Protein Coach

On February 1st, 2012, I once again decided to lose weight and I wanted it to come off fast.  That’s when I found Ideal Protein.  It’s a safe and effective way to lose weight fast and it helps you understand how to eat healthy food.  By March 30th, I lost 22 pounds and felt great.  I finally found my last diet ever!  

When the opportunity opened up to become an Ideal Protein coach at Vista Family Health, I jumped at the chance. I look forward to helping patients with their last diet and to change the way they view food too.  I love meeting new people and watching the delight everyone has when they achieve the results they want.  I also love to see patients be able to stop taking their medications associated with being overweight.  Come join us today and change your life too!


mellieMELLIE, Ideal Protein Coach

I started working at Vista Family Health in 2002 as a janitor. In 2007, I began working part-time as a receptionist until 2010, when I moved up to full-time. During my time with the front staff, I learned the daily operations of our family practice.

At the beginning of 2010, I chose to start the Ideal Protein weigh loss diet. It worked incredibly well for me. Within a few dedicated months, I lost 57 pounds! The Ideal Protein program changed my life. I felt like a new person and I wanted to help others achieve their weight loss goals.

I joined the Ideal Protein department at Vista in the fall of 2010, as a certified coach. In the spring of 2011, I was promoted to Ideal Protein department lead. However, after a year of service, I chose to step down and move back to part-time to be a mom. Working with the Vista team is a joy. We all take great pride in providing the best care possible to our patients.

I have known Dr. Flesher for many years, and was so excited to hear about a weight loss program he offered at Vista that actually works. Having been “morbidly obese” for longer than I care to remember, I understand the pain associated with being overweight. I lost 180 pounds on the Ideal Protein diet. I am Vista’s “biggest loser” to date.

After many years of service, I retired from Stratton Surveying & Mapping in Kennewick to work part-time at Vista as a diet coach. It’s my way of giving back. My goal is to help others achieve the same results I worked so hard to achieve. The staff members at Vista are caring and professional. I look forward to a long relationship together.
