Her philosophy is rooted in her own success in overcoming the challenges she has faced. Even though she dropped out of school at the age of 16, she had a successful career in insurance and real state. At the age of 32, while in college she recognized her true calling and went to pursue a medical degree. Another great challenge was her weight. She’s only 5 feet tall yet at one time wore a size 22 dress. Today she maintains her 70 plus pound weight loss by applying the same methods she uses to help her patients achieve their weight loss.
