Nearly 30 years in invasive, general, and nuclear cardiology led to a halt in her belief that the highest quality pharmacologic, diagnostic, and procedural methods were a solution to controlling her patients’ cardiovascular disease. She now focuses exclusively on Lifestyle Medicine consultations, culinary medicine, and developing tech and human connection-enabled Lifestyle Medicine programs that solve for cardiovascular and other lifestyle-related conditions.
