A Bit of History

Where It All Began

Maggie grew up in Saugatuck, Michigan, where she lives today. She moved away to go to college in St. Louis, Missouri where she graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a B.A. degree. After graduation she worked for two years managing the oldest health food store in St. Louis. While there she worked closely with an ND and soon realized that she had a calling to work as an ND herself, but she didn’t have the means to go back to school at the time.

Research into Vitamins, Herbs, and Nutraceuticals

She then moved back home to Michigan where she met her husband Ron and worked for twenty two years at a company that imports and distributes vitamin, herb, and nutraceutical raw materials to vitamin manufacturers throughout North America. In this position she worked closely with hundreds of supplement manufacturers and has visited dozens of these companies. During this time she read daily reports from around the world on the most recent science about these products, and many people started coming to her with their natural health questions because of her wide knowledge. Reading innovative science is still part of her daily regimen.

An Empty Nester

Once their youngest son graduated from college Maggie found that she had “empty nest syndrome” with both extra time and extra funds on her hands. Remembering her desire to become an ND she finally did so, partly so that she could put that diploma behind her already large repertoire of natural health knowledge, and mostly because it called to her soul. She could honestly say that she fully understood nutritional supplements from beginning to end, from manufacturing to how they affected the human body.

Looking Forward

Maggie enjoys enlightening clients about their own health and nutrition, and especially likes watching each person’s journey towards health. In this practice she uses many types of nutritional therapies to find the causes of disease and then offer her clients options to address those causes. In this way they are able to remove the sources of disease and allow the body to heal.

"Find the cause,
Address the cause,
Your body will heal."
