Born in the midwest, her passion for natural health care started when her aviation career resulted in prolonged hours of sitting, leading to chronic back pain in addition to a violent, unexpected reaction to the flu shot.
This turning point propelled her into digging into the “why” behind achieving optimal health, not just accepting ordinary health.
She detoured her career as a pilot and meteorologist into functional medicine and chiropractic after she obtained her MBA.
Founding the functional medicine club as a student at Logan University in St. Louis over 10 years ago, she is now on faculty at Logan teaching students principles of operating a successful functional medicine practice.
