Michelle Larson, Certified Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner

Michelle is a Nutritional Response Testing Practitioner. Her passion for this work started long before  training to become a Practitioner.  Prior to this work, though active with a relatively healthy diet, she still found that something was missing. Her sister was on a program with us,  saw amazing results and experienced complete health shifts and she wanted in on that game! Michelle became a client and feels she saw more than 100% change in her health! She is extremely active with hobbies such as soccer, broomball, running, hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and snowboarding. After going through the program, she felt a strong pull toward this work, as she wanted to aide others in their healing so they could feel as awesome as she now does! Michelle notes it has been the most gratifying experience, and she enjoys every moment with the clients and staff.

Note: Michelle has a love for testing four-leggeds for support as well.  Arf, arf. Meow.


Manna Towler

Manna Towler, Professional Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner, Birth & Postpartum Doula & PSYCH-K® Facilitator

Hi I am Manna, I am a true Minnesota girl from a small farming community in the southern part of the state, but I now reside in the twin cities with my husband, Nate and our doggie, Bella. I have always had a passion for caring for people… finding and working for My Healthy Beginning has given me the outlet and skills to be able to do that at a higher level than I ever imagined.

My background has been in the traditional American healthcare field since I entered the workforce as a teen. I have worked in nursing homes, adult specialty care facilities and with the elderly doing in home care here in Minnesota and in various parts of our country. Never did I see myself leaving that field of work, yet once I discovered holistic healthcare several years ago and started to learn about what it really takes to have optimum health (i.e. truly nourishing, detoxing and supporting the body to perform at it’s best), I knew that my desire to help people on their journey to wellness would have a much different path than I originally had planned.

I am an Associate Nutrition Response Testing practitioner, currently completing my Professional Level Series of training at Ulan Systems in Clearwater, FL…. so if you don’t find me at MHB, chances are I’m there getting more training to help our practice members in their quests for health. 

I am also one of our Birth & Postpartum Doulas. I am fully trained, working with clients inside my apprenticeship and currently earning my Certifications for both from DONA. As a private doula, I serve clients in the entire Twin Cities Metro and can attend births in any birth settings that my clients choose.

I absolutely love getting to work with people ready to take on their life and health in various ways! My clients can always count on me to be their biggest cheering section and someone who will stand with them as they go through new life experiences, whether that is in the realm of transforming their health and diet, or in welcoming a new baby into their family.

If either of those things are what you or your family is up to, I would love to have the opportunity to support you in achieving the life and goals you are dreaming of!


Shaina Lacey Towler, BIO Birth & Postpartum Doula, & PSYCH-K® Facilitator 

I am a vibrant, compassionate, and nurturing person by nature. I have always thrived inside of working hands on with people, and have had a passion for pregnancy and babies even from a young age. I never knew that being a doula was my true calling until after having my son in 2013.

Nichi (MHB’s incredibly talented owner and founder) was my doula and childbirth educator. Like many new moms I knew almost nothing about birthing and definitely had never heard of a doula before! The knowledge I gained during my pregnancy led me to having a beautiful birth experience that left me feeling like a whole new woman, more empowered than ever before in my life, more connected to my husband, and confident in caring for and bonding with my newborn. I knew after experiencing the benefits of having a doula, that I wanted to bring those gifts to as many other birthing women and partners as I could!


Chelsea Reinking, Practice Manager & Client Nutrition Coach

Hello! I’m Chelsea and after earning my degree in Corporate Wellness I landed my dream job here at My Healthy Beginning in February of 2020. I am proud to be MHB’s Practice Manager and our client’s Nutrition Coach. I live in the countryside with my Husband, two young children, and one pup. My passion in life is making honest raw connections with others and serving them in their health and wellness journey. The life I live is one that shines His light of love onto others. My purpose is to make every single person that I come into contact with feel like they matter. 

On days that you don’t see me at My Healthy Beginning I can either be found chasing around my children, vacuuming up dog hair, or meeting a gathering of friends at a local park (all are welcome). I enjoy walking (not running), reading, and having my home filled with family. 
My Healthy Beginning gives me the opportunity to connect with others in our community-helping them along their health and wellness journey. Because of this, I am truly able to live my dreams. 
Never stop learning. Never stop dreaming. Never stop loving.
Believing in you friend.
