I realized early on in life that health is about diet, lifestyle, and your environment. I made it my personal life mission to understand health and wellness from a broad perspective. I studied environmental health as an undergraduate at Connecticut College, where I completed my honors thesis on the public health effects of factory farming. I attended one of the nation’s top Western medical schools, the University of Virginia, where I focused on allergies and the effects of environment on our health. I studied and published studies with Dr. Thomas Platts-Mills, who was knighted for his work in allergy and who is a former president of the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology, and Dr. Larry Borish, who sits on the editorial boards of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and The American Journal of Rhinology and Allergy. I have also studied traditional Chinese martial arts, first with Master Abdul Mussawir in New York City, and later with Sifus Adam Woolsey and Wei Fu Zhung, in Salt Lake City, Utah. I traveled to China in 2013 to meet Master Wu Nanfang of the Wugulun School of Kung Fu. I recently began studying indigenous medicine with Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD, of the Coyote Institute, currently a Professor of Family Medicine at Eastern Maine Medical Center.
I am now the fellow in Environmental and Integrative Medicine at the Sponaugle Wellness Institute in Clearwater, Florida.
