Sarah Frost Crew – Plan Health Coach & Director of PR
Sarah Frost Crew grew up in a family that emphasized nutrition and the healing powers of food. She works as a teacher and lecturer to change behavior patterns that cause physical and emotional distress. Sarah turned to The Plan at age 30 because she was taking 5 medications for moderate postpartum depression and unexplained pain throughout her whole body. Four months after finishing the 20 day plan, Sarah was able to come off of all 5 medications and remains off of them 4 years later.
A turning point came when Sarah’s oldest child, 7 yr old Emma, had daily pain and was diagnosed with ADHD and restless leg syndrome. Her prognosis was a regimen of serious medications. Sarah contacted Lyn-Genet, who walked Sarah and Emma through a custom Plan designed for Emma. Within 6 month Emma was out of pain, no longer recommended for medications, and is now achieving awards for her focus and performance.
Sarah has taken her lifelong commitment to health and empowerment to help people worldwide. She is working with Lyn-Genet one on one to specialize in pediatric, teen and family nutrition.
Toby Ford – Head Nutritionist
Toby Ford began her journey to becoming a Plan health coach in 2014. She was unhappy with her weight, was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and was not satisfied with her relationship with her health in general. After trying every fad diet out there she began her journey with The Plan. Needless to say, The Plan has changed her life. Weight began to quickly come off, the lower back pain completely subsided and she has found that when a food is reactive, her lower back lets her know!
Toby has a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from California State University, Long Beach and a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University. Toby’s goal is to help people find the path to wellness with The Plan.

Emily Smachetti – Plan Health Coach
Emily, who works full-time as a federal prosecutor and part-time as a yoga instructor, turned to The Plan after struggling with a life-time of migraines, allergies, weight gain and hormone imbalance associated with early onset peri-menopause. Amazed at the virtual disappearance of these symptoms when she started to eat the foods right for her chemistry and stopped excessive exercising, Emily quickly began to share The Plan with friends and colleagues and embarked on her journey to becoming a Plan health coach.
A graduate of Smith College, the Vanderbilt Law School, and Frog Lotus yoga teacher training, Emily’s goal is to support, guide, and nurture her clients, while empowering them with skills that will allow them to find the version of The Plan that is right for them.

Sara Box – Plan Health Coach
As a NASM certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, Sara has nearly 10 years of experience working closely with individuals of all ages and fitness levels. After watching her clients struggle with the cookie-cutter “eat less, exercise more” approach to nutrition and weight loss, Sara recognized the unique nature of every body and the need to develop individualized exercise programs and health protocols in order to achieve optimal health. She studied Biological Anthropology and Exercise and Health Science at UC Santa Barbara and went on to complete her Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition through Hawthorn University. In 2014 Sara was introduced to The Plan and Lyn-Genet who helped Sara determine which foods were actually contributing to her own chronic allergies and hormone imbalance.
Eager to be a part of this groundbreaking and structured nutrition and exercise protocol that closely aligned with her individualized approach to helping others, Sara began training under Lyn-Genet to incorporate exercise testing with her private clients. Sara uses these findings to continually evolve the programs and classes at her own gym, Titan Sports Performance located in Santa Barbara, California.
Laura Kimmel – Plan Health Coach
Laura grew up in the kitchen. It was there that cooking, drinking, and laughing as a family inspired the real joy of cooking. Her creative spirit and passion for food and fun led her to open her own catering business that she owned and operated for 20 years.
Laura began struggling with health issues that nobody could fully diagnose or explain. She gave up gluten, sugar, potatoes, pasta, and chocolate, yet weight gain, migraines, hormonal imbalance and skin rashes intensified. This went on for 18 years until she was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2015. It was at that point that she found out about The Plan and it changed her life. Not only did she shed the unwanted weight, but she rid her body of the inflammation that was causing so many other issues. Most importantly she realized that her passion was to help others using The Plan.
Her personal mantra: I want to have passion, make a difference; have relationships that grow; have integrity and do the right thing; use the power of great ideas to be creative; hold myself to the standard of excellence; have balance; have fun; be successful. If everybody wins so do I.
