Improving the lives of our patients
Joy Wellness Partners was founded in 2016 by NP Carol Hanselman Bender, following her extensive work in a regenerative medical clinic in Murrieta, CA. Having experienced first-hand the powerful, life-changing results of regenerative medicine, Carol founded JWP with the vision of making high-quality personalized medicine available to more people in the greater San Diego area. Having personally experienced the power of regenerative medicine in San Diego, our staff at JWP Utah is proud to bring the same powerful medicine to you.
Andrew Nichols, Paramedic “FP-C”
Andrew Nichols, Paramedic, flight-certified critical care paramedic, nationally-licensed Phlebotomist, IV Therapy and EKG technician, brings a wealth of knowledge and past life experience to Joy Wellness Partners Utah. From his first profession, serving as a police officer in the front lines of one of the most dangerous cities in the Southern United states, to helping severely injured Veterans in Nursing facilities, Andrew has a heart of compassion and care for each of his patients. Unfortunately, Andrew has also spent a considerable amount of time as a patient, when he was victim to a near-fatal auto accident. Having barely survived and with life altering injuries, Andrew understands the struggle and hardships along the path to recovery. It was this road that led Andrew to Joy Wellness Partners in San Diego. At JWP San Diego, Andrew received regenerative medicine treatments that significantly improved his recovery and allowed him to take his life back. Because of his heart for helping others, and the results of his own treatments, Andrew has worked tirelessly to bring the same life-changing services to the State of Utah. Andrew looks forward to being one of the regenerative medicine pioneers in the state of Utah.
Josh Nichols, Director of Health and Fitness
Josh Nichols has a long standing passion for fitness and bodybuilding. Today, Josh continues his passion for health and fitness working as a Crossfit Instructor and personal trainer. In addition, Josh focuses on customer success and customer enablement for a large enterprise software company in Utah. Josh is excited to be part of the Joy Wellness Partners Utah team as the Director of Health and Fitness, because he is able to combine his knowledge and passion for fitness and nutrition along with customer service to ensure that the JWP Utah customers get the best service, products, and advice possible.
Josh has always been interested in what many refer to as the “Golden Era of Bodybuilding”, that is the first group of Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia competitors back before steroids took over the sport of bodybuilding. A student to fitness, Josh studied every publication from these world-class athletes. Josh had the rare opportunity to work directly with the very first Mr. Olympia Larry Scott. In their work together, Josh was able to learn Larry’s training secrets first-hand and became the first athlete to complete Larry’s official Larry Scott Training Course, certifying Josh to work as a personal trainer through Larry’s Scott’s personal company, Larry Scott Research. One of the key takeaways from this specialized training with Larry was that one size fits all workout solutions and diets do not work. Every person has a unique body, with different chemistry, and both the workouts and diet need to be custom tailored to the specific individual in order to get optimal results. This same philosophy is the ingrained in everything we do as a company as we are able to provide custom health and wellness plans based off each individual’s body chemistry and end goals.
Ron Nichols, Chief Financial Officer
Ron K. Nichols is an active practicing Utah attorney for over the last 2 ½ decades.
During his practice of law in the personal injury field Ron realized the real deficit in the ability for clients to really heal from their injuries and to be properly reimbursed for their injuries by the insurance companies.
When Ron went to San Diego to experience a new approach to treatment with his son Andrew, who was completing his paramedic studies and training, Ron saw and recognized a real chance to help individuals with treatment and to help his clients gain increased settlements. At that point, “Joy Wellness Partners-Utah” was born.
Ron’s goal in bringing this venture forward is to bring the benefits of regenerative medicine, with the expertise of Carol and Joy Wellness Partners San Diego, to the State of Utah.
Since that time the concept of the company has grown and the possible benefit to Utah Clients has increased dramatically.
With Ron’s great experience and management skills that he has developed and honed over the years with his many successes, Ron is well suited to shepard this opportunity.
