One of my life’s passions is to motivate others to realize their potential so they may experience a life of health, vitality, and freedom from disease. Working alongside experts in the field of Functional and integrative medicine gave me the confidence to open The Metabolic Institute clinic18 years ago. It’s amazing the impact that healthy nutrition, exercise, and positive lifestyle habits can have on one’s health…it can be that simple, but challenging in a world surrounded by toxic exposures and mental stressors. My interest in integrative oncology began with treating cancer patients who had been through conventional treatments but hadn’t achieved the level of health that they had hoped for. With my functional medicine background, I knew there had to be more that needed addressing.
I enjoy the outdoors and all of the activities that it provides which nurtures my sense of adventure and connecting with nature. Juggling a career, family and the business presents its challenges; spending time with my husband, three sons and grandchildren reminds me of the importance of balance in life. This motivates me to stay focused on my life’s mission, which I hope will also become your life mission…being all that you can be and having everything you ever dreamed of! Treating endocrine imbalances, adrenal dysregulation, gastro-intestinal health, mold toxicity, chronic diseases and the mental/emotional aspects of health are some of my favorites, now along with integrative oncology and the prevention of cancer.
