In 2003 I was searching for a life and career change and looking to leave behind my 23-year career on Wall Street.  I desired a life that I believed in, that would bring about healthy lifestyle changes for me, my family and friends, the people in my world and in the bigger world.  I enrolled in IIN and never looked back.

Welcome to my monthly newsletter where I share suggestions on how to improve bone health through organic whole foods and lifestyles.

Growing strong bones starts in childhood. Encouraging our children to eat unprocessed foods and organic vegetables (whenever possible) prepares the body for the last few chapters of life, while helping us avoid bone illnesses such as osteopenia and osteoporosis.
