About the Author
I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana â second of four children. Always a high achiever, I participated in every extracurricular activity that I could. I married Donald Cave, attorney, after graduating from LSU with a B.S.in Medical Technology in 1966. I had "several" careers including medical technologist, research specialist, instructor of clinical chemistry. The present one, physician, I hope is the last. I went back to Medical School at age 36 after having three children, fulfilling a dream I had had for years. I graduated in 1983 and completed a residency in Family Practice in 1986. Board certified in Family Practice, I have been in the private practice of Medicine in Baton Rouge, Louisiana since 1986. My practice was a typical family practice until the last couple of years. I now enjoy integrative medicine and I spend my time mapping out and normalizing chemistry for my patients. In the last 4 to 5 years, I have treated autistic children. My colleague, Dr. Amy Holmes, and I are seeing more than 700 autistic children. This is where the inspiration for the book started. We realized that there is a link between vaccines and the epidemic of autism that we are seeing. I set out to put together a way to give vaccines safely and effectively and the book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations, is the result.
