She has over 14 years of experience working in various scientific research laboratories that study genetics, entomology, HIV, macro and molecular, environment, as well as cancer.   Shortly after completing her dissertation Dr. Scott began working with her partner, George Leonard Bess who has been a practicing naturopathic healer for over 9 years.  He has real-time research experience in reversing diagnosed physical and mental illnesses through his study of macro-environmental effects as it relates to the body’s microenvironment.  He was recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Aboriginal Medical Association of North America for his development of the break-through health paradigm entitled the Nutrient Retention Rate which Dr. Scott assisted in refining.
