Linda’s nursing experience ranges from being a clinical nurse in a surgical intensive care unit to being the administrative head nurse of outpatient surgery departments of two different hospitals. As a nursing manager, she helped establish a chronic pain center with both inpatient and outpatient services. Linda brings five years of nursing experience in a drug-free rehabilitation clinic and over 11 years of clinical experience in dermatology to the practice.
Linda has learned many techniques in Mind-Body medicine which she began to use with the guidance of Dr. Gustafson after her diagnosis of breast cancer in 2008. Since that time she has advanced her studies by learning how to use Food as Medicine. She applies her studies at home in addition to counseling patients at the office on living a healthy lifestyle. Linda has become an active volunteer at a local hospital where she mentors post-surgical breast cancer patients. She is now certified as as First Line Therapy Educator and is in the process of studying to become certified in both Holistic Nursing and Healing Touch.
