Meet the Posse: {Sheri Brinkmeyer}

The Unapologetic Entrepreneur posse is a community of successful, powerful and unapologetic women who are building a better world through impact-driven entrepreneurship. Join the posse by visiting

Sheri Brinkmeyer is a Functional Wellness Specialist, Certified dŇćTERRA Essential Oil Specialist, and ASCP Certified Pathologists’ Assistant with a Masters in Health Science from Duke School of Medicine, which provides her with a unique and powerful background to help others on their journey to optimal wellness. In her role as a Functional Wellness Specialist, she is a translator, a guide, and a partner with her amazing clients as they learn to listen to the language of their bodies and what they are being told about the disconnect as well as interconnectedness between the life they want to live and the one they are currently experiencing. Her greatest joy is when a client tells me about a symptom they were able to link back to a lifestyle choice that they changed on their own!

1. What is your business and when did you start it?
I first started to explore a career opportunity beyond the traditional employer/employee relationship in January of 2014 when I learned about and fell in love with dŇćTERRA essential oils. With dŇćTERRA, I finally felt like I was fulfilling my life’s purpose to help others live a more educated and empowered lifestyle to embrace true wellness through nature and to become stewards of their health. However, I felt there was more to the story, and that I had a greater potential. When I enrolled at The School of Applied Functional Medicine at the end of 2019, I found that last puzzle piece and launched my solo entrepreneur business, Root Cause To Wellness, in May 2020.¬†
2. What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I was inspired to become an entrepreneur because I knew that the only way to truly give all that I have to those that I have the honor of helping was if I did it on my own terms. 
3. Why did you join the posse?
Somewhere along the way solidifying my essential oil business and before launching my functional medicine business, I met Bri and benefited greatly from her manifestation challenges as well as working in a small group setting redefining how I looked at myself, my potential, and the gifts being presented to me by the Universe. When the posse became an opportunity a year ago, I knew that it was exactly where I wanted to be. I see great value being surrounded by strong women who are also following their calling to live within their Zone of Genius even though and especially because those Zones are quite diverse.  We support and encourage each other while also lending our experiences to help navigate these completely new experiences. And no matter where we are in our journey, we all have a slightly different perspective and therefore always have something to give to each other.  

4. What is your favorite part of your business?

It’s hard to pick the favorite part of my business so far. Is it helping a 75 year old woman cut her fasting blood sugar levels in half while understanding for the first time in her life how what she eats impacts her health?¬† Is it helping a 63 year old woman live a life of less overall pain, lose weight, and decrease her need of additional insulin injections?¬† Is it helping a 26 year old work with her doctor to wean off of anti-anxiety and antidepressant meds and start to enjoy more hair growth?¬† Is it helping acknowledge that a client is overwhelmed and honoring her need to take a step back and pause her healing journey until she’s at a better place to move forward?¬† The answer is yes.¬† Yes to all of these client wins and more.

5. What do you have coming up in your business that is exciting you?

I’m most looking forward to leaving 20 years on the bench as an Anatomic Pathologists’¬†Assistant behind in mid-December to dedicate my time fully to my studies and my clients.¬† I have been the best PA in the nation for years. It’s time to step aside and let someone else take up that title as I walk hand in hand with my clients to become stewards of their own health.
