I completed residency training in Brooklyn, New York and became board certified in Internal Medicine in 1996. In 1998 I relocated to the greater Chicagoland area to work in a large multi-specialty managed care group.
In my search for that better way to practice, in 2005, I went into private practice with two other business partners. However, our practice philosophies were divergent, and so after five years of trying to build a viable practice in 2010 I made a hard decision to leave.
In March 2018 I attended a conference by the Institute of Functional Medicine in San Diego, California. As I sat listening to the lecture topics I realized that I had finally found my tribe of like-minded people who were also passionate about optimizing health and promoting wellness of their clients. I embarked on a year and half long training and in December 2019, I became a certified practitioner of the Institute of Functional Medicine.
THRIVE Functional Health is my functional medicine practice located in Chicago, Illinois. I consider myself my ideal client. I am committed to helping women particularly those living with chronic health conditions to optimize their health and wellbeing so that they can experience wholesome lives allowing them to fulfill their purpose on the planet.
