“Being part of my profession and helping others in obtaining their best health is such a passion for me. After my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment several years ago I realized that I had not done this for myself. I committed to myself to always quest for better health through all available modalities and methods not only for my patients but for myself.
“Since that time I have become a student of integrated healthcare and functional medicine practice. I believe prescription medication is but a component of healthcare and should be reserved for use after other types of treatment have been utilized. Nutrition is one of the key components to health and wellness. That is part of the reason I am so excited LivLabs and the premium Hemp Oil nutritional products we offer that I believe will increase quality of life for so many customers.
“I am married to a wonderful man Andrew Orr. We enjoy spending time with family especially our grandchildren. We both believe in contribution to our community. I have been involved in many organizations and most recently was on the Hospice of Southern Maine Board of Directors. My husband is part of the Shriners organization and we are avid supporters and contributors to the Shrine Hospitals for Children.”
