All my life I have been searching.
For healing, for truth, for the secrets of this world.
My search first led me to study Landscape Planning with a focus on Landscape Architecture, Garden Design, Plant use, Garden history, Resource Management and Environmental rehabilitation in Berlin, Germany with internships in Auroville, India and Israel.
It was in those days that I developed an auto-immune disease that I was later able to heal through diet and lifestyle modifications.
After working for a few years I was asked to build, develop and later manage an Organic Farm in Southern California, which posed new challenges and learning opportunities.
After 2008 I began to refocus on my original passion – Natural Medicine. First with a Master’s degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and then with countless trainings at Integrative Medical Conferences, including Nutritional Genomics, Functional Medicine, Environmental Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine and integrative Oncology.
Once I had a handle on those things I began focusing on Botanical Medicine and studied with David Winston, RH AHG, Feather Jones, RH, AHG, Roy Upton, RH, AHG and a few other big names. I am now working on a doctoral degree as a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition at Maryland University of Integrative Health.
Since 2020 I have incorporated trauma work, energy work, meditation and spiritual healing into my repertoire, after realizing that most (chronic) diseases at the root level really are caused by a lack of emotional well-being and chronic stress.
I am currently building a small Yoga and Meditation circle in Redlands and a worldwide network of retreat centers and refuges called “The White Spots”, which came to me in a vision and has as its mission to offer an experiential, holopathic approach to healing, meaning healing on all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual.
