Before her years at Options Center, Helen worked in various areas of community health care and obstetrics.

In 1979, Helen visited a chiropractor for her own health problems and discovered alternative health techniques. She began reading books, attending workshops, and participating in correspondence courses that dealt with holistic health. Among the holistic approaches, iridology first fascinated Helen. Friends began asking Helen to “read their eyes.” Soon thereafter, she started charging for her services.

Since 1985, Options Center has grown to become what it is today, a place to discover your optimal well-being.
