1. What is the most gratifying part of your work?
Properly diagnosing and assessing difficult medical conditions and working with patients to resolve these conditions with nutrition, hormone balancing and wise use of conventional medicine.
2. Why did you get into your profession?
I was diagnosed with osteoporosis and went through an early menopause. I was afraid and this fear propelled me to find answers for myself and for my patients. Then and now, women are faced with a lot of conflicting information regarding their health. I learned that my skills lay in sorting through all the contradictory viewpoints to give women the very best advice that conventional and alternative medicine have to offer.
