40 years ago you might have met me walking down the street in a t-shirt that read “FOOD for PEOPLE not for PROFIT”.
Even then I was bringing light to important issues and becoming an advocate for truth.
I am always seeking higher standards for what I put into my body and out into the world.
It has been a constant theme in my personal and professional life, with a successful career in law, education, entrepreneurship, leadership and now health and wellness.
My family’s health has always been a top priority in my life.
I experienced a personally profound time when my daughter became ill and was misadiagnosed and improperly treated for over 17 years.
During this time, my search for answers intensified, and I found some shocking and suprising facts about the choices available in health and wellness.
Like many facing difficult health choices, I sought out experts, doctors, and treatment amidst a sea of misinformation. Sadly the choices often only managed symptoms and never offered any prevention or cure.
As a result, I immersed myself in learning the science behind what truly nourishes and heals our bodies.
I became a Board Certified Health Coach as well as a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and partnered with the highest rated nutrition company in the world, USANA.
This Gold Standard company has not only changed my life, but the lives of my family and led me to fulfilling my mission by helping people take back their health and wealth.
