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, Barbie, also developed a passion for nutrition, exercise, and using her knowledge to help others lose weight for good. She serves as Vice President of the company and Nutritional Program Director. Recently, their youngest daughter, Danielle, also joined the business and serves as the Marketing Director – making the “Aspen Family” even more family-oriented!

M. Barbie Dupuis:

AFPA Certified in Holistic Nutrition, NASM Certified Weight Loss Specialist, NASM Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist and Primal Blueprint Certified Primal Health Coach

“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 for the rest of their lives. 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.”

Danielle Dupuis:

Being able to grow up and watch the impact the Aspen program has made on so many people’s lives is something I will forever cherish. Now that I am able to be a part of that impact firsthand I have been able to truly see how lives can change once someone learns to prioritize their health and nutrition. There is nothing more important in life than one’s health, and the Aspen Clinic teaches that our program is so much more than just weight loss.”

Laurie Dupuis:

“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.”

Steve Dupuis:

“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  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 – eating real foods like plants and animals, instead of the processed garbage on shelves today.   We would be a healthier nation if we consumed more whole, nutrient dense foods and that is what we try to teach our patients. 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.”
