She has training in nutrition and integrative medicine that she obtained outside of the traditional medical training. Besides her undergraduate degree in nutrition, she did online pediatric integrative medicine training through the University of Arizona. She takes this passion and knowledge of nutrition and integrative medicine and applies it to helping families and children be more well.
After working for 10 years in the managed care system, she struggled to provide the care she wanted to give. It became more apparent that families need in-home, individualized holistic healthcare for their children, so she opened her own direct primary care practice: Mindful Pediatrics.
