ABOUT ME

Naturopathy. Health. Pre-conception.

I'm a Naturopathic Doctor, who practices integrative medicine with an emphasis on women’s health.


My current focus is on Environmental Medicine and the conditions that are associated with toxic exposures: auto-immune diseases, fatigue, cognitive decline, hormone imbalances, mitochondrial dysfunction, and neurologic conditions.


I also have a Masters in Public Health and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I was the Naturopathic Doctor on staff for the First Disabled Ascent of Mt. Everest in 1998. I was also the creator of Insulite Laboratories, a company dedicated to reversing disorders related to insulin. My private practice Holistica Integrative Care is in Boulder, CO, which I've managed for 24 years.

I am the co-founder and Vice President of Pride Pads Africa whose mission is to manufacture sanitary pads in Northern Cameroon to keep girls in school. I am the author of a book called "Preconception Detox: How to clean up your Internal and External Environments to have the Healthiest Baby Possible."
