My background started very young influenced by
my own family elders. Alternative traditional
Western Medicine was first introduced to me by
my grandmother, a true "Prairie Woman". All
kinds of home remedies passed down to me from
my grandmother's, forefather Squire S. Whitman,
who came across the Oregon Trail & founded the town of Monmouth Oregon. Another important influence, was my mother, a surgical nurse for 7
years & became the charge nurse for the New Born
Infant Center, at Dominican Hospital, Santa Cruz, Ca. My formal education was in pharmaceutical sciences as a doctoral candidate at University of the Pacific Professional School of Pharmacy, with a clinical emphasis and an IV Specialist.
My pharmacy studies completed with a clinical clerkship & medical rotations at the
Navy Regional Medical Center (NRMC) Balboa Hospital, San Diego, Ca. and
writing a Pediatric Handbook,"A Therapeutic Orphan", for use by other doctoral candidates going through the pediatric rotation, at NRMC. I have worked 10 years in institutional medicine along with 24 years, concurrently in relief pharmacy work & a year with the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation (CDCR) Salinas ValleyState Prison (SVSP), Soledad, Ca.
