Meet the Aspen Family
The Aspen Clinic is a family-owned business. Its owners, Steve and Laurie Dupuis, like to think of their business as a family that is made up of themselves, their wonderful employees, and physicians at the 9 locations of the Aspen Clinic and the countless number of clients that they have helped over 30 years of business.
After growing up in the “Aspen Family,” Steve and Laurie’s oldest daughter also developed a passion for nutrition, exercise, and using her knowledge to help others lose weight for good. She has recently taken over as Vice President of the company and serves as the Nutritional Program Director – making the “Aspen Family” even more family-oriented!

“I think that one of the biggest things that separates our program from any other weight loss program is that we genuinely care about the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of our patients. Not only do we want to teach people how to lose weight, but also how to be healthy. We wholeheartedly believe in our program and ‘practice what we preach,’ which better allows us to help people reach their goals, keep the weight off, and live longer lives.”
“Our business was formed upon the belief that we could make a difference in someone’s life. After 30 years, our difference has made the difference in so many lives. To experience the transformation of an overweight, unhealthy individual into a healthier, happier person is something that words can’t describe.”
“It is your choice which group you fall into. The fact is if you are overweight today you are not in a minority. 63% of the country is at least 20% overweight. Weight loss marketing has got the whole country confused as to what is right when it comes to weight loss. We teach the truth about nutrition, low fat, high fiber, lots of vegetables and complex carbohydrates. We would be a healthier nation if we consumed more plant-based foods, and substitute red meat with fish and chicken. You must understand that fast food is bad food. But the biggest problem, especially in South Louisiana, is that the food is so good, that every time we eat, we eat too much. So the most important thing to do is EAT LESS. It’s your choice. That’s what we specialize in: HELPING PEOPLE MAKE BETTER CHOICES.”
