As a certified nutritional consultant, I have helped many thousands of people to improve their health. I am also a certified Metabolic Typing Advisor and have specialized training in reading and interpreting hair mineral analysis reports. I graduated from Loyola University School of Law and was licensed to practice law in the state of Illinois in 1986. I practiced law on and off from 1987 to 1993.
My interest in natural healing began as a result of my six-year battle with chronic illness. During this time, from 1984 to 1990, I saw dozens of health care practitioners, both conventional and unconventional. I was diagnosed with a variety of illnesses including food allergies, chronic candida, chronic fatigue syndrome and toxic metal poisoning. By 1989 I had made little progress and had almost given up hope. It was during this time that a life-changing shift in my understanding of healing occurred: a combination of natural therapies that addressed underlying toxicities, deficiencies and emotional challenges is what helped me break through years of struggle, and I was finally able to regain my health. After regaining my health I felt compelled to share this message of healing with clients from my legal practice, friends, family, even complete strangers. From this point on my life took a new path into the field of natural healing.
In 1996, I began my professional career as a nutritional therapist. Most recently, I was on staff at The Optimal Wellness Center, the largest holistic medical clinic in the Chicago area from June 2000 through January of 2004. For two years I had a private practice in Oak Park, Illinois offering a variety of health and wellness seminars and trainings to health care practitioners. Beginning in 2007 I opened a private nutrition consulting practice in Ashland, Oregon. My ongoing education includes a doctoral program in natural healing. I am also completing my naturopathic degree from the Clayton College of Natural Heath.
I have also been a featured nutrition and alternative health care expert on Channel 7 news in Chicago (the local affiliate of ABC) covering areas ranging from public health and safety to tips for healthy eating while traveling.
