My life’s calling has been about the journey of healing of stress and burnout, health, and integration of mind, body, spirit…beginning with myself…

It is my intention to share what took me decades to learn, to now help guide you to be able to understand within months. And we will all need to continue to learn and grow, personal and spiritual growth never ends.

I am able to serve either as a physician guide or speaker/messenger/. Education and relearning the truth about health and food as medicine is an important part of this journey.
