I am retired due to disability as the result of a prescribed antibiotic. I spent 15 years in the Property/Casualty Insurance field, initially as an agent, and later in the legal/compliance and process improvement area of the industry. Prior to my work in insurance, I spent 20 years in the health and beauty industry, as a cosmetologist, aesthetician, aromatherapist, and herbalist. I am also an avid wildlife photographer. Since my forced retirement, I have been researching many issues involving our healthcare system, the inappropriate use of pharmaceuticals, the politics of the pharmaceutical industry, and also involved in many support groups for victims of Fluoroquinolone Toxicity.
