My Bachelor of Natural Health Sciences degree is in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Natural Medicine, San Dimas, CA. I am certified in Iridology from the Institute of Natural Therapeutics, Bakersfield, CA., and I am a certified Herbalist. I earned my Nutrition Educator certification from Bauman College, Santa Cruz, CA, and my Natural Health Consultant certification from the Tree of Light Institute, St. George, UT. I am Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition.

I am continuing my education in the Natural Health field with the International Iridology Practitioners Association, the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, and the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. I am pursuing my Doctor of Naturopathy degree from Clayton College of Natural Health.
I have been in the business of supplements since 1975 and in the herbal realm since 1982. I have seen many things come and go, including but not limited to my own health. I have been helping people with herbs for over 25 years, and have been a full time consultant since 2001. I have seen hundreds of clients with a broad range of symptoms and/or diagnosed diseases. In most cases I am able to help people more than anything they have experienced before, and in some cases the recovery is nothing short of miraculous.
I believe that this is because I do not specialize or deal with disease names, but with underlying imbalances. This science is known as the terrain of the body, and I utilize information from the saliva and urine to detect imbalances. This is what Naturopathy acknowledges because all disease comes from underlying imbalance. I am also extensively trained in biochemical blood analysis. Your body can be trusted to heal itself with proper nutrition and in the absence of toxin. "The germ is nothing, the terrain is everything", and "it doesn't matter what disease has the client, but what client has the disease!"
I also believe that my clients' successes are because this is a calling for me, not just a career opportunity. I am doing exactly what God has asked me to do, my specific call was this: "It's time to be a student, I want you to be a teacher and a healer; teach my people to take better care of their bodies." In light of this I am perpetually learning, in order to be perpetually teaching.
