I initiated my health care career in 1981 by attending the Boulder School of Massage Therapy.  For 10 years following graduation, I maintained a private massage practice in Denver, Colorado.  I then chose to take my career to the next level by pursuing a Doctorate of Chiropractic.  I attended the Palmer Chiropractic College in Santa Clara, CA, graduating in 1989, and began the next phase of my life as a Chiropractic Physician.  I have always felt my career was designed prior to my 'knowing' and my path is just filling in the steps; this was definitely one of those moments.

I established my first clinic in Sandpoint, ID, a small town in northern Idaho.  The practice was an open room adjusting concept with a payment box on the wall, modeled after the practices of the philosophically based chiropractors.  At that time, I used no supplement support; I simply adjusted, opening the nerve channels in the spine to support the body in regulating itself.

In 1995, I began studying European methods of natural healing, including homeopathy, nutrition, nutritional supplements, and a series of diagnostic tools designed for early detection of biochemical imbalances that lead to disease processes. Over the next decade, I studied European Biological Medicine with Swiss-based Naturopathic Doctor and researcher, Martin Keymer; Chief Medical Director of the Paracelsus Biological Medicine Network, Thomas Rau, M.D., also from Switzerland; and in the United States with the German Naturopathic Doctor, Marlene Geiser.  During this time, I had the rare opportunity to practice with Alf Zeigler, a German medical doctor, homeopath, and medical intuitive. It was the culmination of these experiences that led me to the German Biological Medical system I practice today. Anthroposophical Medicine is a holistic and human-centered approach to medicine viewing health and illness, nature, and the human being in a spiritual light.  Under the Physicians Association of Anthroposophical Medicine (PAAM), I became the first Chiropractic Physician to be certified by the international organization that has traditionally been exclusive to medical doctors.

In 2008, I began studies with Dr. Datis Kharrazian from Apex Energetics, focusing on neuroendoimmunology.  I am very excited about this study and feel privileged to be a participant in what I consider to be the most current research in holistic functional medicine.

In 2009, I founded a cooperative of natural healers, creating a community healthcare resource in the small town of Pittsboro, NC.  A community of licensed health care practitioners, our mission was to provide comprehensive integrative therapies using a holistic approach that combined conventional and alternative health care, and encompassed the physical, energetic, soul, and spiritual aspects of the whole being. To reach out to more of our community we provided a sliding scale clinic one night a week.

In 2013, I chose to simplify my life by moving my practice into my home.  As an avid learner & an individual with a passion for healing, I am inspired to seek ways that promote health & well-being for my patients & my community.  This move enabled me to further my studies in bioenergetic medicine, allowing for an expansion of services including Rubimed Therapy, EIS Technology and other diagnostic & treatment modalities.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share this passion with you
