Lydia Speck - Founding Partner, Nuuvo Health
Lydia Speck is an expert in health and wellness and specializes in health management. Raised in the Dallas area, she chose Texas State University where she received a degree in Consumer Science and a minor in Business. Upon graduation, she pursued a career in fitness and personal training. It was there that she realized, when it came to maximizing results, fitness was most advantageous when paired with medicine. Since that realization, she focused on understanding how to apply these new medical approaches with lifestyle changes to achieve maximum results in the pursuit of a healthier and better life.
Lydia has spent the last three years in the medical field she has seen remarkable results from therapies using IV infusions. However, the most common request from clients was to have these treatments in a more convenient setting than a clinic. After extensive market research the idea was born to offer a mobile service, starting with her hometown of Dallas, TX. She Co-Founded Nuuvo Health at the end of 2016 with Dr. John Ruffino and currently acts as the COO.
