Dr. Tucker opened Project Fabulous in March of 2012. It was a long time dream of hers to incorporate physical exercise into wellness for her patients. After a late life baby and hysterectomy she gained over seventy pounds and struggled with her weight through many hormonal changes including breast feeding, tubal ligation and thyroid issues. She understands women’s frustration with hormonal imbalance and through her journey has developed a 10 step bio balance program to help women in Northwest Arkansas and beyond understand metabolic hormonal balance issues and conquer them once and for all. Through extensive lab tests and hormonal supplementation, healthy eating and exercise any one can achieve all their weight loss and wellness goals quickly efficiently and without stress. She has become an expert in the world of bio-identical hormone therapy and offers an array of treatment options in her office.
She has written several books available at www.Amazon.com and continues to be a major patient advocate for women’s health and wellness issues in Northwest Arkansas.
