“My passion for obesity medicine began when I was 39 years old. After four children, I looked in the mirror in tears. Depressed, self-conscious, and imprisoned by an excess of 30 pounds on my small height of 4’11”, I decided to make a change. I pledged to concentrate on obesity medicine and to develop a personalized plan to lose weight and achieve a healthy lifestyle,” said Dr. Darby.
Since launching Lifestyle Changes, Dr. Darby has successfully led hundreds of patients on personal journeys towards significant weight loss and ongoing weight management. Under her supervision, patients lose up to 50 pounds in four to six months and more than 100 pounds in a year. Her proven success in helping individual patients has expanded into corporate wellness programs where she offers a combination of services to companies of all sizes.
In addition to Lifestyle Changes, Dr. Darby is the author of Get Your Sexy Back, her autobiography sharing her weight loss journey to wellness. She is also the creator of a private-label collection of vitamins and supplements to complement her treatment plans.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Darby is a Supervisor of Lower Providence Township in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

In her civic duties, Dr. Darby helps build a community that accepts, respects, and encourages all individuals’ values, dignity, and capabilities.
