My Story:

During my early medical career when my patients asked “What else do you have to offer besides a prescription”, unfortunately, my answer came up short.

So I went back to school and discovered the world of integrative holistic medicine and then the Institute of Functional Medicine. This was a game changer for me. I learned that about 70% of chronic illnesses have a lifestyle component.

What started out as a way to better serve my patients became the ticket to my greater health as well (in addition to my husband’s)! You see, I’ve also been on a heath journey.

I was struggling with a host of issues including IBS and chronic fatigue. Then muscle tenderness and general malaise. Clearly something was wrong and I was going down the wrong path. I was among the “walking wounded” – kept working, raising a family and pushing through.

Once I started applying the principles of integrative functional medicine myself, my energy and symptoms greatly improved. Nothing like personal experience to infuse passion into a mission/message! One thing I’ve learned is that the body is always trying to heal and I’ve seen people of all ages have improved quality.

I’m grateful for the chance to help others on their path to healing!
