Sunshine Team

Meet the Sunshine Team

We are proud to say that the Sunshine Team is a small team of women who LOVE our jobs!  Not only do we feel passionate about helping other women transform their lives, but we are enjoying this fun (and maybe a little messy) health journey, together as a team.

Hi!  I’m Betsy Markle

I’m a Registered Dietitian and Holistic Nutritionist with over 20 years experience.  I graduated from University of Pittsburgh and started my career in the clinical setting where I was taught the conventional wisdom of Calories In = Calories Out.  It was a simple equation that made sense during my schooling but…

The problem I found with this thinking was that it didn’t take into consideration that people’s metabolisms can become damaged over time due to stress, too much dieting, health problems, medications, and hormonal changes.  

I started working with a world-renowned endocrinologist (Diana Schwarzbein MD) in Santa Barbara, CA who showed me I had the power to HEAL client’s metabolisms through proper nutrition and lifestyle interventions.  I was already getting great results for my clients when I met Stacy (who is now my business partner).  Stacy Hinkel is an amazing person, trainer and health coach – you’ll meet her below.

Together, we created the Metabolism Mojo system and have seen INCREDIBLE results, helping our clients transform their lives.  My heart is full and I’m living my life’s purpose, helping people out of overwhelm, pain, and deteriorating health and into a balanced lifestyle that feels right.

P.S.  Most importantly, I am a mom with three kids.  We are a salty surfer family living in the Melbourne, Florida area but we all play sports and love to travel.  As you can guess, my life is BUSY and messy at times.  This perspective has probably influenced me the most when creating Metabolism Mojo.  Some keywords that I live by are:

  • Life Balance
  • Organization
  • Stress Management
  • Fuel & Nourishment
  • Connection
  • Healthy Routines
  • Self-Love
  • Consistency

Hey, I’m Stacy Hinkel

I’ve worked in the fitness industry for over 20 years as a business owner, personal trainer, college lecturer, group exercise instructor, Director of Education for a Health Care College, and as a sports coach.  

With two degrees in Kinesiology and Certifications as a Strength Coach, Personal Trainer and Health Coach, I’m sure you can tell that I am super passionate about fitness and wellness.

Like our whole team, I’m a mom juggling it all, understanding the true importance of realistic nutrition, exercise, and balanced living.  I’m married with two kids and a yellow lab (who counts as an extra kid and co-worker) and we live in Indialantic, FL.

I LOVE to dance, especially to 90s West Coast hip hop and rap (I grew up in Long Beach, CA and this is the music of my high-school and college days).   Betsy and I met on the dance floor at a PTO event for our kids’ school.  We were the two craziest dancers out there and knew we were like-minded from the start.  Betsy’s nutrition and lifestyle philosophies have helped me to feel more in control (less cravings and no more need for calorie restrictions or HIIT workouts 5 days a week to get results).  I can honestly say I feel better in my body now than I did 10 years ago.  

My focus is to help our clients live pain free, active lives that get better as they age.  Whether your goal is to just get out of knee pain or as ambitious as climbing Mt. McKinley, I’m excited to help you attain that goal!

Hello, I’m Katie

I’m so grateful that my path crossed with Betsy and Sunshine Wellness.  I used to work full-time as a Quality Management Director for a mental health company in the mountains of North Carolina. When my oldest turned 2, I decided to stay at home and we subsequently moved to Florida.  Since my kids are getting older, I decided to get back into the work environment and Sunshine Wellness has been a healthy and positive fit for me and my whole family.

My office job title is Office Manager but my most important role at Sunshine Wellness is to give some extra love to our clients.  When someone gets started with our program, they may feel a bit overwhelmed so I help them as needed.  I also guide our clients to stay on track throughout the whole program. Seeing our clients thrive and succeed truly makes my heart happy!

Hi, I’m Kelly

I’m excited to be the newest member of the Sunshine Team.  Working with this crew has been enlightening.  Not only is it a fun, positive work environment, but it’s amazing to continue learning about healthy living so I can be a good role model for my family, friends and all of our clients.

When you are first introduced to Sunshine Wellness, I am usually the first person to greet you.  I am the social media coordinator, leads manager and I also assist Betsy with projects throughout the Metabolism Mojo program. I enjoy speaking with everyone I meet, learning about your goals and watching your personal health journey.
