Miriam graduated from St. Peter's University in 1988 at the top of her class with a B.S. degree in Marketing and minors in Math and Economics. She then spent her corporate career specializing in employee benefit plans, such as 401k (including IBM’s $1 billion account), health and welfare, and supplemental insurance. She did this from all sides: the financial institution, human resources, and the insurance agency.
Miriam later decided to stay home to raise and homeschool her small daughters. During that time she experienced dramatic health improvements due to diet and lifestyle changes. When her friends and family noticed the changes in her and started asking how she did it, she started her health ministry and blog (Your Body: God’s Temple) in 2007 to help others improve their own health and become pain-free. She is referred to as Dr. Miriam by many, including several real doctors. Besides her family, helping others is still her biggest passion to this day.
