Pam Dobbins, 
Pharmacist & Wellness Coach

Pam is a licensed and registered pharmacist with over 30 years of experience.  Due to her own health issues and watching her patients' health continuing to deteriorate despite pharmaceutical intervention, she began to study more natural solutions to well being.  In 2013 she attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and received her certificate in health coaching.

Pharmacists are required to complete continuing education credits each year.  Pam has over 450 of these credits.  Lately, due to friends and family health decline, she has concentrated on Diabetes education by attending the American Association of Diabetes Educators Convention.

Pam's passion now is to assist people in finding alternative ways to address their health.  In America today, she sees a medical system that tends to be reactionary and focuses on symptoms.  She concentrates on the root causes of health problems and helps people discover more proactive ways to address their well being.
