Chapter President Bio
I woke up to the idea of holistic wellness when I experienced the personal challenges of colon cancer and later of domestic abuse and suicide. Treatment opened my eyes to the many opportunities for the health care system to better serve patients struggling with similar challenges. I embarked on a journey of self-discovery to better understand my body and improve my well-being. Personal advocacy eventually connected me to countless underserved people who were suffering from mental health challenges and substance use disorder. This taught me that we have been forced into a false dichotomy that would have us choose between time-honored Eastern philosophy and traditions and modern Western medicine and technology. Instead, I've come to believe that the true richness in healing exists at the intersection, where East meets West. My goal is to change the healthcare landscape from illcare to wellcare through education and increased awareness.
