About Anne: Anne graduated from nursing school in 2002 as a 2nd degree student because her organic chemistry grades weren’t good enough to get into Med school (seriously). She moved to nursing after 5 years as a paramedic, and took a job in the Neonatal ICU. She spent 12 years at the bedside, and 3 years as a Nurse Educator in that unit until she left the hospital to work as a holistic educator full time from home.
Anne is passionate about caring for people with a wide open heart. She loves helping people to trust their intuition and learn about the root causes of their symptoms.
Anne lives in Michigan with her husband and 3 kids.
