Jennifer Trejo

Founder & Naturopath

Abundant Life Wellness Center was founded by Jennifer Trejo. Jennifer became interested in natural health and a more holistic way of life after her father died unexpectedly from a heart attack at the age of 59. Out of a determination to learn how to improve her own health and finding a passion to help others do the same, Jennifer left her career in international human resources and completed her Doctorate in Naturopathy.

Jennifer was trained by Dr. Kharrazian in Blood Chemistry Analysis from a functional/preventative perspective as well as in complex autoimmune conditions. Jennifer also continues her training through the Institute of Functional Medicine which was founded in 1991 by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, the founder of the functional medicine discipline. In response to a need she has seen rising over the last few years, she is additionally training under Dr. Ben Lynch on MTHFR and other genetic mutations that impact mythelation and detoxification function in the body. Dr. Lynch founded www.mthfr.net and is the leading researcher in this area that impacts over 45% of the U.S. population (many of whom are unaware).

Jennifer has also earned her Bachelors degree in Business from Dallas Baptist University and her Master in Business Administration from the University of Dallas. In addition, Jennifer has trained under Dr. Datis Kharrazian who is considered one of the leading experts in non-pharmaceutical applications to chronic illnesses, autoimmune disorders, and complex neurological disorders.

Jennifer’s education and training as well as the use of the most advanced technologies and professional-grade supplements, allow her clients to receive natural, quality health services. Knowing that there is often better and safer alternatives to pharmaceutical or over-the-counter drugs and surgery, Jennifer is excited to help educate her clients how to live healthier and more holistic lifestyles. She knows this allows bodies to do what God created them to do best, heal naturally in a healthy environment.

Jennifer lives in Fort Worth with her husband Thomas, daughter Lauren and son Matthew. She enjoys her family’s active schedule, spending time with friends, reading, and being involved with her church.

Tandy Dowdy


From a very young age Tandy was drawn to everything natural and holistic. It wasn’t until she was faced with her own health struggles that she was introduced to Functional Medicine. This journey led her to find Abundant Life Wellness Center where she became a client and started her healing process. After being in the dental field for twenty-five years she decided to make a career change. Tandy diligently prayed for God to lead her on the path he wanted, and this opened doors she could have never imagined.

Tandy was called to attend Trinity School of Natural Health where she completed her studies to receive her Naturopath degree. She is Board Certified by The American Association of Natural Wellness Practitioners, and is a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine. She is trained in Blood Chemistry Analysis and is very blessed to have Jennifer Trejo as her mentor. She looks forward to educating her clients at Abundant Life Wellness Center on becoming the person God created them to be and living their best, healthy life possible.

Tandy and her husband Kolt are native to Parker County where they reside and have a show cow business. Their family is very active with this and shows cows at all the major stock shows and jackpots. When they are not showing cows they are taking their son to team roping’s where he competes, or watching their daughter cheer. Tandy also enjoys spending time with her horses and dogs, reading, exercising, and cooking healthy meals.

Tricia Mendoza

Holistic Nutritionist & Health Coach

Tricia is a native of Fort Worth. Her journey to ALWC began with a love of science. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from the University of North Texas. She began working for a large pharmaceutical company and was there for 13 years. However, Tricia had an awakening about her career choice after her son developed eczema, food sensitivities, severe nut allergy and an inability to detox from various chemicals coming from food, vaccines and other environmental sources. This ignited a fire in her to find ways to help her son heal. That is when she was introduced to functional medicine and alternative therapies. Her son is now free from the nut allergy, has beautiful skin and was able to find relief from the toxic chemicals that were so difficult for his little body to remove on it’s own. They give all glory to God for his healing and continued health because they know we can not do any of this alone!

After this experience with her son and finding balance in her own life with nutrition and lifestyle choices, her desire to help others with similar issues grew stronger. Tricia decided to learn various body work modalities and became a bodywork therapist while also attending and graduating from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She began helping her clients in her private practice learn more about how to heal from the inside out. She continues to study functional medicine modalities and detoxification methods. She is excited to join ALWC as the Holistic Nutritionist & Lifestyle Coach! Tricia is here to help those who are ready to work on healing and balancing their bodies with the help of diet, nutrition, lifestyle and living a Christ-centered life. She is passionate about building relationships and providing continuous support to those on their wellness journey.

Hannah Linville

Office Assistant Team Lead

Hannah is a Texas native, with a heart to see people healed and set free. Her journey with natural health began in 2021 when she had a negative reaction to the birth control pill. Over the next year, she saw many doctors who ran countless blood tests only to find “normal” results and many times was told it was all in her head. Frustrated, but convinced that she didnt have to live in pain, she began to do her own research. Through a God-appointed connection, she was able to speak to a family friend with experience in natural health. Hannah learned about toxins, food allergies, inflammation, etc, and was finally able to receive freedom from pain and fatigue, and was able to start her journey towards a healed and healthy body! For that reason, she is so proud and grateful to be a part of the ALWC team!

Hannah lives in Keller with her sweet husband, Christian. They love music, books, fishing, being outside, spending time with their families, and day-dreaming about having a farm one day. She loves the Lord, His Word, and wants to see her community made healthy in body and Spirit.

Kristi May

Office Assistant

Kristi is a compassionate individual that has always loved to help others. Her boy’s are the light of her life! So as she began her journey through motherhood, only the best would suffice. Holistic health became a big part of her life. Having studied esthetics before starting a family, she already had a passion for product/ingredient knowledge. While being a stay at home mom and helping her family start a business, she wanted to continue utilizing the skills she attained. Making her own products for herself and her family using essential oils and other natural ingredients became a hobby.

When her health began to struggle and Medical Dr.s failed to help, she began to broaden her knowledge and gain awareness on what was going into her body. Learning more about quality food/supplements, holistic healing and how to implement those things into her life, as well as her loved ones, became a rewarding pursuit.

When she’s not doing crafts or playing outside with her boy’s, she continues to explore the many platforms of natural healing/living. Getting to be apart of such a strong team that changes so many lives is beautiful blessing she is extremely grateful for.
