Kerry’s ethos as a health professional is that health is NOT one size fits all. Each of us is unique, and as such requires individualized treatment. Her philosophy on health and medicine began when, as part of her graduate studies, she observed the effects of environmental toxins on human health; toxins which left patients with a myriad of symptoms that didn’t have a specific diagnosis.
She has since dedicated her life to developing an integrative approach to medicine that combines the individualized approach of Ayurveda with the benefits of modern technology, such as genetic and epigenetic testing. By combining the wisdom of eastern medicine with the breakthroughs of western technology, she is able to create wellness plans for her patients that are personalized down to the molecular level.
Kerry has a B.S. in Neuroscience, a Masters in Education, and has studied at The Kripalu School For Ayurveda and the world renowned Ayurveda Institute. She is the CEO of The Holistic Highway, where she helps her clients achieve optimal health through customized health services and programs. She also has a practice at The University Of Pittsburgh’s Center For Integrative Medicine, runs the Ayurveda Sanctuary at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, is a registered practitioner with the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA), member of Yoga Alliance and the owner of the TEDx Talk “Context Is Everything.”
Kerry has spoken in front of dozens of audiences, ranging from small workshops of 25-50 people to TEDx events of over 1,000, to online events with 50,000+ views. Her engaging personality, dynamic stage presence and British sense of humor are consistently applauded by event attendees and event managers alike.
