ASHLEY MEYER
Owner, Clinical Nutritionist

Ashley Meyer, ACT Certified Designed Clinical Nutritionist and Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner, is the managing owner of ORGANIQUE in Tomahawk, Wisconsin, a clinic and spa devoted to alternative and holistic health. After graduation from university, Ashley worked in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. She transferred to Advanced Health and Educating Wellness Clinics in Rhinelander, WI, in 2009. Her zeal for results-driven natural healing inspired her to open her own clinic in Wausau, WI, in 2013 and another in Hazelhurst, WI, in 2015. The next phase in clinic development was a large expansion: the addition of a spa and cafe, as well as an organic coffee and nutrition bar company, resulting in the opening of ORGANIQUE as a destination retreat venue in Tomahawk, WI.

Ms. Meyer, B.S., graduated summa cum laude from UW-Stout in 2005. She later took the Advanced Clinical Training at UNS in Clearwater, Florida, where she received certification in Designed Clinical Nutrition and Nutrition Response Testing. She is one of only a few hundred in the country noted for the highest level of competency and expertise within the field and was inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame for the most successful graduates. Over the next ten years, Ashley continued to expand her education in the field of Applied Kinesiology in applications of environmental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Ashley thrives on challenging cases and enjoys working with those who have lost hope. Her passion for infertility is paramount, and the success testimonials with these patients are some of the most meaningful to her. Other special areas of focus include autism, cancer, auto-immune and hormone-related conditions. Regardless of the case, her unique "niche" is in uncovering the missing link to the body's ability to heal. Her most ardent ongoing education and research efforts are within the field of Environmental Medicine.

Filling her life to the brim are her two sons and her husband, Steve, a PA of Internal Medicine with Ascension Medical Group, WI. Ashley and Steve often join forces on cases, as they both emphatically agree on the key components that are involved in a successful health journey.

Other interests include her passion for truth, energetic and spiritual education, singing, songwriting, research, the woods, and the mountains.

Her mission is to inspire others to take control of their bodies so they realize their full health potential and the calling God has on their lives.

"There is immeasurable satisfaction in helping people write their own success stories. The human body is innately created to powerfully heal itself when it has the correct nutrition, supplementation, and spiritual grounding."

 

 



BRIDGETTE REILLY

Certified Patient Advocate Nurse, R.N., B.S.N.

After 20 years of caring for patients in a hospital setting, I am excited to pursue my new position in a holistic healthcare setting at ORGANIQUE. After graduating from UW-Eau Claire with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, I worked for 5½ years as a Pediatric ICU nurse at UW- Children’s Hospital in Madison. Returning to my hometown of Tomahawk, I worked for 14 years as an Endoscopy Sedation Nurse. The years spent in hospital settings, along with my background in Exercise Kinesiology/Management, resulted in my intent to prevent disease through nutrition and exercise.

A surgery in my teen years, along with unresolved health issues, inspired me to search beyond the limits of traditional Western medicine and symptom-based treatments. It was through a friend that I found ORGANIQUE and began my own healing journey and the discovery that true is health rooted in the interconnected realms of the physical and emotional aspects. I was supported to make changes in mind, body, and spirit, which expanded into the desire to help others. I continued my education with a certification in “Food, Nutrition, and Health.” What started as a need became a mission.

My husband Mike and I have four children who keep us forever busy. My personal interests include gardening, landscaping, exercise, golf, waterskiing, hiking in the mountains, spending time at the family cottage, watching my children compete in sports, and, finally, drinking coffee with my husband on the front porch on early summer mornings.

I am excited and thankful for this new chapter in my life as a Patient Advocate at ORGANIQUE.

 


JEN MATTSON
Emotional Health Coach

Jen Mattson joined the team at ORGANIQUE as Patient Advocate over three years ago, after serving her community as a passionate organic grocery store owner.

Jen's enthusiasm for NRT and Designed Clinical Nutrition began over seven years ago when she came to Ashley as a patient. Her "epiphany" response to understanding and embracing the treatment has driven her beyond the role of store owner to working closely now with what she believes in most — Nutrition Response Testing and the reality that true healthcare begins and ends with what we put in (and on!) our bodies. That includes thoughts and emotions.

Jen's firsthand experience with how emotions block the individual from living to the fullest potential in life has guided her into a desire to share this information with others. She believes that the holistic approach to health encompasses mind, body, and spirit and the mind-emotion connection. In fact, emotional health transformations are just short of miraculous!

We are blessed to have her onboard to ensure that our patients enjoy a positive, effective, and complete healing experience. We adore Jen around here, and we know you will too!

 


KAITLIN MITCHELL
Guest Services, B.S.

Like many of the staff here at Organique, Kaitlin's journey with Organique began as a patient, where she underwent an amazing health transformation through Ashley's NRT program. Inspired by Ashley's holistic healing abilities and Ashley's purpose to live an authentic life, Kaitlin came on board in 2020 to pursue her own authenticity and passion for natural health.

Kaitlin grew up in the Northwoods and graduated from UW-Madison with degrees in Communication Arts, Journalism and Mass Communications. After working as a writer, she went on to work in local government for 12 years. Kaitlin is excited to share her passion for holistic wellness with others and to witness the incredible health transformations that take place every day here at Organique. She hopes to support patients on their journey to emotional and physical well-being and to be their cheerleader along the way. Kaitlin says, "Organique is my happy place, and there's no place else I'd rather be."

When not at Organique, Kaitlin loves spending time with her daughter and husband, camping, hiking, visiting friends and family and spending time at her family's cabin in Harrison Hills. She strongly believes in Ashley's mission to pinpoint and heal patients' underlying health problems, instead of simply putting a band-aid on the symptoms. That is what brought her to Organique and why she feels Organique's programs can work for anyone, no matter what the health issue. She has seen that everyone is capable of complete healing here at Organique and encourages you to come and experience it for yourself.

Why “ORGANIQUE”?
I have been a patient of Ashley’s for over 10 years. She held my hand through the loss of a baby due to toxic environmental conditions. She found things that stumped professionals in HVAC, septic, and construction. Ashley has a gift; she is a healer! Basically she aspires to empower others to take the reins of their own health! I want to be a part of the team that brings healing and zest for life to others. This, my friends, is love! Who could ask to be a part of anything greater than that?

LYNDA JENKINS
Guest Services

Born in a small town in Wisconsin, Lynda remained connected to her roots and the beauty of the Northwoods. Her service to others, caring nature, and belief in Eastern medicine took her on a personal path of self growth. As she discovered natural ways of improving her physical health, she went on to focus on her emotional health with Ashley’s help. In this way she found an innate capacity for helping others heal. With the offer of a position at ORGANIQUE, she feels that her life purpose is further realized.

I was born and raised in Northern Wisconsin and am currently entering my senior year at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, pursing an Exercise Sport Science and Nutrition degree. I found passion in whole body healing after visiting Organique for my own health journey. This profound way of healing allowed me to grow spiritually, physically, and emotionally. I yearn to help others visualize and achieve their health goals and could not be more excited to be a part of the Organique team and for all they stand for.

 


TIFFINI SCHADER
Certified Patient Advocate Nurse, A.D.N.

Tiffini Schader has worked in the healthcare field for twenty-five years and became a Registered Nurse in 2012. She has always felt a calling to be a caregiver; her abilities to help heal have guided her decisions.

As she matured in her career, she realized that her heart was not in "traditional" medicine, and she began to lose her passion for nursing. Her own health was poor, and she was scared for her future. This uncertainty led her to ORGANIQUE. She not only gained her health back but became rejuvenated in her passion to help others in their health journeys. She will forever be grateful for the knowledge and continued support from ORGANIQUE and feels blessed to be a part of that amazing team. She has realized the healing that was intended for her, and she is eager to support others in their quest for healthier living and improved quality of life.
