Marcia Kerns, MEd, NP, CPT

IHT Certified Trainer, BioScan Practitioner
Director of Sales, USA/Mexico

Marcia Kerns is a mosaic of professional experience and education that harmonizes in her role at IHT. Marcia possesses the heart of an educator, as reflected in her Master’s of Education.  This was utilized in the classroom setting for over a decade until she found another passion—physical fitness.  Marcia has owned her own fitness studio for nearly a decade but felt limited in the ability to help people with sustained change because wellness and health was deeper than exercise.

After discovering IHT Technologies as part of her own wellness adventure, she was convinced of the efficacy and wasted no time incorporating it into her business.  While Marcia continues her passionate pursuit of educating and supporting her clients in their best lives, she joins our team as an IHT Certified Trainer to educate new practitioners and as our Director of Sales in the US and Mexico, sharing her knowledge and experience in IHT Technologies and in business as a way to support and grow other business.

Kelly Bonhomme, NLP Master Coach

Director of Sales Canada, IHT Certified Trainer

Kelly Bonhomme is thrilled to be joining the IHT Team! She has always been interested in people’s well-being, starting her education by completing a Bachelor of Physical Health and Education. From there Kelly continued her studies in the Sports Injury Management field, and went on to become a Certified Athletic Therapist. Kelly felt that massage would be a nice complimentary skill to add to her repertoire and she returned to school to become a Registered Massage Therapist.

An injury and surgery caused Kelly to take a close look at her career, feeling that she needed something less physical although still having a significant impact on her client’s health and well-being.

She went through the certification process to become an NLP Master Coach, adding Time Line Therapy and Hypnosis to her skills. At the same time she was having such great success as a BioScan client that she invested in a system and became a practitioner.

Over the last year and a half, Kelly has enjoyed learning everything she can about the BioScan, becoming certified in all 3 SRT Levels, and now working her way through the MSA levels. She is teaching new practitioners how to use the system and has now taken on the position of head of BioScan sales in Canada.
