After a successful career in engineering and program management for a Fortune 50 defense contractor, the death of her grandmother from ovarian cancer in 2001 led Dr. Lynise Anderson to become more interested in applying her knowledge of system dynamics to the human body’s potential for healing than to engineering systems.
In 2003, Lynise received her Doctorate degree in Naturopathy from Trinity College of Natural Health in Warsaw, Indiana, then went on to complete post-doctoral training in nutrition and herbalism. In 2005, Dr. Anderson opened the Seven Oaks Wellness Center, in Odenton, Maryland. In response to an overwhelming need for more responsible and reliable health education for both the public and private sectors, Dr. Anderson founded The Wellspring Organization in 2008, a 501c3 non-profit organization established to provide health education and wellness promotion programs to the community at large. In 2010, under the tutelage of William Wolcott, the world’s leading authority on metabolic typing, Dr. Anderson went on to complete additional post-doctoral training in Advanced Nutritional Metabolic Typing.
Author of the book, Who? Me? Stressed?, Dr. Anderson is the co-owner of the Healing Tree Wellness Center, located in Floyd, VA. Dr. Anderson’s philosophy of “treating the person who has the illness” is fundamental in helping her clients regain and maintain their health by not only looking at the symptoms, but by addressing the underlying causes of imbalance in the body. Dr. Anderson’s warmth and credibility—plus her lively sense of humor—create an authentic space for being open to the possibilities for healing, both on stage and in the office. A popular and sought after speaker in the field of stress and health, Dr. Anderson’s engaging and well-researched presentations and workshops have empowered and enlightened both public and professional audiences around the country.
Recently named 2017’s Top Health Professional by the Wellness Council of America, Lynise’s uncomplicated approach to health imparts a simple yet profound message: knowledge is the way out of suffering and into well-being.
