Tell us a little about your business. – There is a lot of confusing and conflicting information out there about what to eat and where to get it. We are genetically hunter-gatherers, and not designed to eat the food of modern civilization, The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.).  The health of the planet is also of upmost importance to our health as well, and due to chemical toxicity and altered seeds, there are big problems. As a Registered Nurse for 40+ years, with a master’s degree in Holistic Nutrition, and Board Certified, I feel I have the knowledge and experience to help you find the path to better health. I am especially concerned about the health of our children, who are so fragile in this current environment.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – To keep learning and keep up with the explosion of information (and the misinformation as well) so I can provide my clients with the most up-to-date information possible. Also a lot of what I know is cutting-edge and may have not yet reached all primary care physicians, so it seems to conflict.

What is your most important achievement professionally? – The ability to keep reinventing myself. I worked 15 years as a hospital nurse, and 2 years in an eye clinic.  I worked 14 years at Midwest Dermatology Clinic first as a staff nurse, head nurse, and finally clinic manager. Then I went to work for Dr. Ryan for 14 years, went back to school and got my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in holistic nutrition. Finally I started my own business.

Tell us a little about your family. – I am blessed to have a great family.  My husband Monte and I have been married 42 years. He is my greatest support in anything I have done. We have two grown daughters, Brandi Curnyn and Abby Mazzuca, and four granddaughters (Sophi, Samantha, Ella, and Genevieve) who all live here in Omaha so we get to spend lots of time with them.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – I enjoy spending time just sitting in the silence; meditating, praying, walking outside on a nice day, sitting on my patio swing on a sunny day. It’s easy to get caught up with doing and overlook the importance of just being and getting to know yourself.

If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be? – Health is my true passion. I cannot think of another profession that would have given me the great joy that helping others heal has done.

What local non-profit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why? – There are a few organizations that I support; Weston A. Price, Institute for Responsible Technology and Heifer International are at the top of my list.

What is your favorite movie? – One of my favorite movies is Medicine Man. It highlights how important the rainforests are to life on planet Earth, and the healing wonders contained there. It also stars Sean Connery, who is one of my favorite actors.
