Meet Founder

Joanie Lingmerth, RN, BSN, MBA

Hi! My name is Joanie Lingmerth, and I am the founder and CEO of IV Wellness. I am a mother of two teenage boys, and a loving wife for 17 years.  Being a Registered Nurse for nearly 25 years, I have worked as a medical/surgical nurse, hospice nurse, and private duty home care nurse.  Additionally, I have experience as an infant water survival instructor, real estate investor, and pharmaceutical representative.

Taking care of your body from the inside out has always been a priority.  Growing up, I was a competitive gymnast for over 15 years, and then a fitness competitor in my adult years.  Starting my own business with a concierge service that provides optimal nutrition for overall wellness and anti-aging only made sense, enabling me to be fully dedicated and passionate about taking care of each of my patients, family, and friends when in need.  Being well-rounded and enjoying life to its fullest is important to me, so in my spare time, I enjoy boating, motorcycle cruises along the beach, snow skiing, adventure traveling, dining, and, well…relaxing at a nice Sunday champagne brunch!
