Elisabeth founded Holistic Caring in 2016 to bridge the gap between traditional and cannabis medicine through education, guidance, and supportive care for patients. An educational provider for the California Board of Registered Nursing, she professionalizes medical cannabis by equipping healthcare providers to have necessary conversations with patients and to approach cannabis by emphasizing holistic and functional medicine.
Her background includes a decade working in hospitals where she specialized in psychiatry, diabetes and medical units. Prior to starting Holistic Caring, Elisabeth spent 20 years in operations and sales management of several health insurance carriers (including RSM of Anthem Blue Cross). She believes cannabinoid medicines offer a chance at healing, comfort and wholeness in a more holistic, economical and empowering way.
Elisabeth earned her MBA in Healthcare Administration, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She is also a member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and serves on the boards of the American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA), Los Angeles NORML, and the San Diego Cannabis Chamber of Commerce.
