Senior National Educator, Country Life, LLC
Dr. Ross has been with Country Life for 11 years and is their Senior National Educator providing product training for retailers and consumers throughout the United States. She joined the team with an extensive 30 year background in the Natural Products Field. She possesses a PhD in Naturopathy, is a Master Herbalist and also has her degree in Marketing.
For 10 years Dr. Ross ran a successful Naturopathic consulting practice in Texas where she served as overall health coach to her patients. She has conducted national and international seminars on general nutrition, weight loss, managing chronic health challenges (including diabetes and hyperlipidemia), stress reduction, label reading, and proper supplementation.
For 3 years, she worked closely with medical doctors in the Dallas/Fort Worth area providing nutritional consultations for some of their more challenging patients - the majority of whom suffered from diabetes or hyperlipidemia. These patients were not successfully controlling these conditions solely through medication so her responsibilities included overall evaluation, supplement recommendation and lifestyle alteration based on case histories, and continued monitoring of progress. The success rates her patients achieved was well documented and respected in the local medical community.
Dr. Ross has taught multiple Continuing Medical Education credit courses for Medical and Dental Assistants in Texas and Illinois and has a passion for education, especially in the natural industry. She has also worked on the retail side of the Natural Products industry, managing and opening several vitamin departments for a major vitamin chain.
Additionally, she has co-authored a book on female hormone management (published in 2000) and is a frequent guest speaker on numerous radio shows throughout the United States. Her passion for education and her extensive knowledge has helped her bridge the historical divide between allopathic and naturopathic medical practices.
