Carrie Bircher, CPT, BA

Carrie Bircher joined our SOGA Center for Medical Weight Loss (CMWL) team in 2015. In addition to being the CMWL Director, she has been a Group Fitness Instructor and Certified Personal Trainer since 2003.  Carrie sees patients in Highland, Illinois at the SOGA offices.  She is looking forward to having her own space in 2018!  

Carrie has helped many women with healthy lifestyle changes and worked with them to achieve medically significant weight loss. In 2009 Carrie and her husband started their family.  After gaining 50-55 pounds with each one of her  three pregnancies, she again turned to diet and exercise to lose the weight! She believes holding yourself accountable, tracking what and when you eat, and moving more are, for many women, important keys to losing the weight and keeping it off!

Because of premature menopause, I gained weight at a young age. At the time I started CMWL, I was 90 pounds overweight. The program helped me lose weight through confronting my emotions, helping me with my hormones and learning to make healthier choices. I was able to lose the weight with the help of the CMWL and some great people!

Carrie has amazing energy and knowledge. When I hit a plateau with my weight loss, she was able to make some suggestions to keep me on track. This program is based on medical science and is not just another fad diet. I really felt like Carrie and the doctors adjusted the program to meet my needs! Thank you so much.
