A passion for helping people find healing of body, mind and spirit, guided Virginia to establish health and wellness, educational programs, after recognizing that many chronic health conditions were not only preventable but also reversible.
Medical model/s that continues to prove ineffective addressing the link between illness and lifestyle choices, dismal healthcare data and trends for many preventable chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and obesity, and a personal journey of self-healing, motivated her to develop a series of educational and wellness programs that have proven very successful.
