Linda is a graduate of UC Davis and University of Bridgeport, Ct. After earning her Master of Science in Nutrition, she studied orthomolecular medicine with physicians trained in using naturally occurring substances, including food, to correct health issues.
Following a western education, she studied Chinese medicine, mentoring with TCM doctors in San Francisco, ultimately traveling to China to see eastern health care and healing cuisine first hand.
After a decade growing a private practice at the Claremont Resort and Spa in Berkeley, Linda spent 8 years sailing the Mediterranean where she studied the foods and health of this long-lived population. She ultimately landed in Turkey where she lived for several years in an Aegean village.
Linda’s nutrition philosophy bridges east and west. As an epicure and nutritionist, Linda’s passion is to teach others how to choose and prepare foods to tantalize the palate while healing the body and mind. She incorporates nutrients, botanicals and homeopathy to help heal, keeping her clients off harmful drugs.
Her book, Live in the Balance: The Ground-Breaking East-West Nutrition Program, shows readers how to apply the principles of eastern medicine in choosing western foods for balance and restoring health.
Linda moved to Eugene in 2010. She lives on the McKenzie River where she continues to study homeopathy, write a blog, and provide healing plans via email and Skype to clients around the world.
