Patient Story: Jennifer Zehringer


Jennifer Zehringer, a long time employee of Mercer Health, began working with the Weight Management Center patient in 2016. In April 2017, she had weight loss surgery and has lost a total of 95 pounds. Physically, she feels great – but that’s not what has had the biggest impact on Jennifer. She is more confident, she can do the things she loves and she feels happier than ever before.

Self-care looks different for everyone, and for Jennifer, self-care meant making her health a priority by finding time to make an appointment with the Weight Management Center where the staff helped her create a personalized plan for success. With the support of the WMC team, she learned how to eat foods that fuel her body, how to find joy in exercising and how to live an overall healthier lifestyle, ultimately leading to a new love for life, more confidence and happiness.

If you are in a place in your life where you think taking charge of your health could help you find greater happiness, take the first step in your journey by contacting the Weight Management Center at 419-678-8446.
