Matthew Felber - Executive Assistant

Meet Matt Felber:

After finishing high school and attending college in Florida I made a decision to follow my passion for golf. Working my way up from the bottom and working at several clubs from Florida to New York I moved to West Virginia in September 2011 after a death in the family. After opening the Dick's Sporting Goods in Beckley, WV in 2011, I continued my employment with DSG until July 2014 when all 470+ PGA Professionals company-wide had their position eliminated. My employment with Imagine Medispa officially started January 1, 2015. Gradually, my duties have changed and I now facilitate all areas of Imagine Medispa with a focus on working directly with the owner and controller on a daily basis.

In 2015 I graduated from Marshall University with my Nurse Practitioner Degree. It's been a long journey but hard work pays off. In 2016 my youngest son was diagnosed with T1D which required a lifestyle adjustment for our whole family and that's when I learned more about carbohydrates. I started working at Imagine Medispa in May of 2016. I enjoy helping patients achieve their weight loss goals through education on the importance of diet and exercise.

Ginger Dixon-Adkins, LPN

Meet Ginger Dixon-Adkins:

I inherited my love for nutrition from my parents. Growing up, my mother was always concerned about nutrition and taught her 5 children to be "label readers"; this carried into our adult lives. After finishing my Associates Degree in Education, I reflected on my days as a Lactation Specialist and remembered how much I loved teaching people about health and nutrition. This brought me to my decision to become a Nurse. I have been a nurse since 2013 and enjoy helping others obtain a healthier lifestyle.
