The founder of Wonderfully Made Wellness, Qura Woodbury, developed a passion for helping children diagnosed with obesity during her time in graduate school. Through her research and studying, she saw that there was a need for an innovative, hands-on approach for helping children who were already overweight and obese.
Wonderfully Made Wellness began as a fitness and nutrition after school program for the general elementary student population, in Douglas County, Georgia. Throughout the school year, Qura recognized that there were students who needed more than just an after school program to teach them about healthy living. She realized that families needed to be involved and there needed to be someone there to help them make real change. After that, Wonderfully Made Wellness created its program to be specific to families who have children diagnosed with overweight and obesity.
Our goal for this program is to see that families are equipped with the tools and resources needed to enjoy living a healthy lifestyle. We want to help build their confidence within themselves so that they can overcome barriers to living healthy!
