My journey to functional medicine is rooted in my family: health issues have caused me to delve deeply into many areas of function medicine to address problems when conventional medicine did not have solutions.  

I have a life-long commitment to research and education:
I am forever a home school mom, taught nursing, and mentor high school students doing research projects.

I love teaching my patients, especially young adults just starting to take on responsibility for their own health.  My dream is develop an active network of education and support to help real people make real changes.

I am intellectually curious.  If we don't have solutions, I am willing to explore.  This has lead to me learning about not only functional medicine, but appropriate use of integrative/alternative approaches, "off label" use of low dose naltrexone (LDN), and other options.  My conventional education is from UW-Milwaukee.  I am Board Certified in Family Practice.   I will soon receive a Certificate in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine (typically a 5-7 year process).  

I believe in Creating a Sustainable World
