After completing her medical degree at the University of Arkansas, she joined her husband in practice, first as a general practitioner in their Medi-Stat Medical Clinic chain and subsequently in a private practice devoted to bariatric and nutritional medicine, gaining first hand experience treating thousands of people suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, and obesity with their nutritional regimen.

Since 2009, she has also been the Chief Culinary Officer for Eades Appliance Technology, creators of the internationally acclaimed SousVide Supreme cooking appliances and has written and published a series of nine sous vide cookbooks.
