the experience & press

Her professional expertise is respected and she has been interviewed and quoted in the New York Times, First for Women and Women's Health magazines, Prevention magazine and blog, and Reader’s Digest blog as well as a speaker at several national meetings. Additionally, she has authored three textbooks and multiple textbook chapters. Her research in preventative health has appeared in peer-reviewed journals.

the wellness philosophy
Skye’s wellness training has a foundation rooted in both the traditional and non-traditional. She completed her undergraduate (Bachelor’s in biological sciences), graduate (doctorate of pharmacy), and post-doctoral residency in traditional medicine. Her certifications, continuing education, and family roots are deep in preventative and non-traditional medicine. Her experience has shown that both approaches to medicine can work together in synergy to help promote wellness. Skye has found that non-traditional methods are often the most successful at preventing disease.
Skye understands there is deep mistrust and skepticism in the wellness industry — and often for good reason. Millions of dollars are spent by Americans each year on cleanses, pills, and protein powders that simply do not deliver upon their promises and, in many cases, cause harm. This is one of the reasons she believes in transparency and is dedicated to using an evidence-based approach to A Better Way Wellness. Her approach is real, sustainable, and results-oriented. Skye deeply cares about the health and wellness of others and her recommendations are founded on integrity.
Skye has an innate desire to learn and tirelessly seeks the truth. She believes in community, kindness, compassion, and sustainability. Known by friends and family to be the chef of food that tastes amazing, Skye makes sure her culinary creations are shockingly good for you. She is a firm devotee to self care so she can be her best for others.
