Barbara graduated from Duke University with a BS in Cellular Biology and a Medical Doctorate degree. After eight more years of advanced training, she moved to the Tampa Bay area of Florida where she practiced 26 years as a diagnostic radiologist. Initially her focus was Interventional Radiology, but in the early 1990’s, she turned to addressing the needs of women facing the possibility of breast cancer. In the mid 1990’s, she established the first patient-centered breast cancer detection service in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Her heart for the uninsured and her understanding of the power of a unified community vision led her to establish a non-profit organization that provided free breast screening backed by a guarantee for treatment coverage. In 1999, she brought the community together to support this and other important outreach programs by establishing the Suncoast Affiliate of the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. After retiring from medicine in 2013, Barbara searched for the perfect fit that would combine her love of health advocacy, mentoring, and visionary leadership. This search led her to create, along with her good friend and business partner Lisa, Integrative Wellness Solutions International.
Barbara is married to husband Jim. She has one daughter, and she and Jim enjoy being part of the lives of their mutual three children and eight grandchildren. She focuses on living out her faith, optimizing personal wellness, and experiencing daily joy.
Lisa graduated with a BA in Management Science followed with an MBA in Marketing and Management from California State University. Her corporate career in medical equipment sales spanned several decades of shifting health care policy and focus, and she leveraged her well-established business skillset to obtain positions of increasing influence in companies such as Covidien, Draeger, and McKesson. In her final years of corporate life, Lisa rose to the level of VP of Corporate Accounts with Aesynt. After her most successful sales year in 2016, and receiving the highest award within the company, Lisa boldly stepped off the corporate hamster wheel. She was ready to follow her passion for helping people build optimal lives through vibrant wellness, natural health, a joyful spiritual connection. That same year, she became an Integrative Health Coach through Duke University, and passed the National Board of Medical Examiners Health and Wellness Coach examination in 2017. Integrative Wellness Solutions International is the vehicle Lisa has created with her dear friend Barbara to bring wellness, vitality, and joy to people desiring an abundant life.
Lisa is a three-time breast cancer survivor. She volunteers in the American Cancer Society’s “Reach to Recovery” program and is a passionate volunteer for the Prayer and Crisis 24/7 Hotline. Lisa is married to husband Bob, and has 15 nieces and nephews and 20 greats nieces and nephews. Lisa focuses on faith, exercising for strength and flexibility, cooking and golf.
