Amy Greeson is the founder and executive director of Healing Seekers. Amy devotes her life to discovering ancient healing techniques.
Amy Greeson's lifelong interest in pharmacology began at the knee of her father, a pharmacy owner in Thomasville, North Carolina. After an NPI Internship in research and development with Burroughs Welcome Pharmaceutical Company and spending a summer with the Alaska Public Health Service, she earned her own pharmacy degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Amy went on to work in both a clinical setting and a retail pharmacy setting in Alaska before returning to take over her father's practice.Her interest in centuries-old healing traditions began during a transformative trip to the Amazon, which she says opened not only her eyes, but also her heart and soul. "It awakened me and showed me a bigger, more complete picture of what healing and medicine are all about," she says.
Since then, Amy has traveled extensively to study with shamans and village healers in the far reaches of Belize, Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, and Madagascar. Upcoming expeditions include New Guinea in 2010 and the Congo, 2011.The educational and entertaining video compositions, from footage of expeditions, are being utilized in school systems like Guilford County Schools, and avenues such as the NC Zoo's website, Field Trip Earth.
