Dr. Henele – Founder, Executive Community Director, Faculty, CHN
If you’ve been searching for a community of Certified Holistic Nutritionists and natural healers you can feel really good about joining…look no further. And if you haven’t taken a class with Dr. Henele (aka Dr. Henry Ealy) yet, we strongly encourage you to watch any of the many free videos available on YouTube or be our special guest at an upcoming Follow Your Heart Open House or Love Without Limits Meditation on our Facebook Page. Students who want to know how to make Natural Medicines, like Holistic Nutrition, really work trust Dr. H with their professional development. He’s dedicated decades and tens of thousands of hours to unlocking the secrets of making Natural Medicine really work and, more importantly, how to teach it to you so you can make it really work too.
When you spend even a little time with him, you can feel his passion…his love…his caring…his sharing…his sense of humor…his light-heartedness…and his depth of experience. You’ll feel like you matter…because you do. It’s not an act or some marketing ploy…with Dr. H, what you see is what you get, and one thing you’re sure to get is a LOT of Love Energy. You’ll feel like you’re needed…because you are now more than ever. And most of all, you’ll feel inspired to ignite the greatest energy living within you.

He holds a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from SCNM, a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA, is Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition by the NANP, and has over 20 years of teaching & clinical experience helping people understand how to care for their amazing body by unlocking the healing potential of Natural Medicines. He is an Ordained Minister for all denominations and has been additionally certified as a Yoga Teacher, Clinical Massage Therapist, Human Anatomy & Physiology Teacher, as well as American Kenpo Teacher. He is the 1st Naturopathic Doctor to regularly teach at a major university in the US, where he headed up a program at Arizona State University on Stress Management. Upon graduating from UCLA, he was hired by a major aerospace company to be a primary database developer for the International Space Station Program. Recently, he has helped co-author a research paper just submitted for peer review on Climate Change discussing the importance of planting trees to help sequester carbon from the atmosphere.
He has a strong background in and deep passion for Data Verification & Analysis, Teaching & Personal Development, Curricula Design, American History, Herbalism, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Yoga & Ayurvedic Medicine, Meditation, Clinical Massage Therapy, Lab Testing & Assessment, The Basic Human Sciences, Environmental Medicine, Climate Science, Holistic Nutrition & Naturopathic Medicine.

And he likes wearing flip-flops while hanging out with trees, doggies and good people with a lot of love in their hearts while listening to love music with a lot of soul.
In 2012, he sold his Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Phoenix to pursue his life-long dream of founding a healing arts school with the ability to transform both education and healthcare…and his dream became the Energetic Health Institute today…aka ‘Our School’. EHI is a home for aspiring healers, brave souls, misfits, nerds, activists, outcasts, and anyone, from any background, that believes in Love. EHI is the school that Dr. Henele always wanted to attend when the healing arts first attracted him…a vibrant student community, an encouraging faculty & administration, and stimulating classes filled with transformational information focused on sustainable energy, health, and happiness.
While his responsibilities for the school are many, he still makes time to work with patients on a weekly basis and conduct free monthly holistic health science webinars designed upon one simple idea…making our world an amazing place to live by healing from within. 🙂

Linda holds a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services with 5 years of experience in Early Development Education and California Teaching Credential. Thanks to this background and her years in team management at the corporate level, she is able to create a special experience for each member of our student body.
Virtually each day we receive unsolicited comments from our students telling us how wonderful Linda has been and how much she really helped. We certainly couldn’t provide the level of encouraging, personalized 1-on-1 attention that we do without her.
She coordinates all aspects of our unlimited student interaction, from Student Success appointments, so we can make sure each student is on track for graduation to the daily assistance required to conduct a successful open-enrollment format. Linda also helps coordinate Field Study Apprenticeships for students who elect to take advantage of this option while in school and coordinates communication with our CPA to ensure we are always in full compliance as a 501(c)3 Non-Profit School.
And when she’s not taking care of our students, Linda enjoys spending time with her family, especially her handsome and very happy grandkiddos. 🙂

Kaylee Koozer – Faculty, Certified Holistic Nutritionist
Kaylee brings a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and an eternal positive outlook to the faculty. Teachers are easy to identify because they express an unquenchable curiosity for what they’re learning and certainly Kaylee has demonstrated that again and again and again.
We’re very excited to see the influence her positive energy has with our growing student body and where here pursuit of wisdom leads her on this amazing journey. 🙂
Lisa Maillet – Faculty, Certified Holistic Nutritionist
Lisa…well, we had our eyes on Michelle from the very beginning because her attention to detail and researching accumen is something to behold. At EHI, we keep our best and brightest around…and that’s saying something because we always have too many amazing healers to choose from, which is a great problem to have.
Talented, humble, and introspectively curious, Lisa brings a quiet confidence to each teaching session that is completely free from the pitfalls of egocentric thinking. She routinely goes above and beyond when working with our students and we absolutely love that about her. 🙂

Brittney Kara – Faculty, VAX101 Co-Author
Mother, Wife, Entrepreneur, Vaccine Education & Medical Freedom Movement Activist…you would think this powerhouse for uplifting change had 48 hours in a day. Brittney is absolutely amazing as her legion of Hero Mommas will attest.
She is the Co-Creator (Along with Dr. Henele) of VAX101, the 1st ever Vaccine Education Specialist Certification course. A course that fills an urgent need in the health care field because literally no Medical School teaches anything more than a lesson or two at most on this polarizing and diverse subject often leaving Licensed MD and NDs alike at a severe disadvantage when it comes to being able to interpret Vaccine Ingredients, How to Identify Vaccine Injuries, and How to Report Them as well per the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System established by the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.
Knowledge is power. Being informed is the key to living free. Informing parents is her passion. And Brittney is a powerful authority when it comes to wisdom and CDC supported vaccine data every parent should know. 🙂
Vickie Novak – Faculty, Certified Vaccine Education Specialist, CHN
One of the many things we love about Vickie is that she’s an Eco-Friendly Homesteader. Want to learn how to regrow Garlic, Celery, most things we think of as ready for the compost heap? Vickie will show you how to keep that circle of life going so you can save money without compromising the nutrient density.
Just another of our uniquely talented and completely dedicated faculty. 🙂
Sandy Lyle – Community Welcome Specialist, CHN
Hug everyone with your words…this is what we think of when we work with Sandy because that’s how you feel each time you leave the conversation…like you just got a big southern hug.
What’s amazing is we often think of genuine people, like Sandy, as never having to had to go through hard times…that’s why they must be so happy. When it’s more accurate that the hard times they went through taught them what really matters and they’ve embodied those lessons to a ‘T’.
Sandy is on the verge of graduating from our Holistic Nutrition as well…and what’s really cool is that between her and Sherri…you’re education can begin before you even take your 1st class. 🙂
Meg Montanez – Community Success Specialist, CHN
Meg has been one of our brightest spirits for years here at EHI and easy to admire because of the courage she has continually displayed on her personal healing journey.
Loving, resilient, upbeat, and deeply caring, she is the perfect graduate to assist Linda in helping our students overcome personal challenges that inevitably arise as they progress towards graduation. It’s people like Meg that make EHI such a special school for our students. 🙂
Carmen Adams – Community Growth Specialist, CHN
What can you say about Carmen except for absolute inspiration! In her 1st year in practice she already had a 3 month waiting list of clients referred to her from Licensed Doctors. We’re talking Heart Specialists, Oncologists, et all. Doctors trust her with their patients and we trust her clinical expertise with our student body as well.
Carmen heads up our student-teacher communications for students anxious about their business abilities as graduation approaches, always reassuring them that they can do exactly what she did and showing them the step by step process that leads to success.
There will always be a market for a Ferrari…and when it comes to Holistic Nutrition expertise…Carmen is that Ferrari. 🙂
Shannon Summers – Community Outreach Specialist, CHN
Sweet, Gentle & Authentic…Shannon is an absolute gem and talented technical writer to boot. She’s also a tremendous organizer and editor for our emerging eLibrary team. Always warm and extremely helpful, Shannon is a wonderful addition to our team.

Camille Calvin – Freelance Film Producer
We first met Camille while doing an interview for a student in our program and were immediately impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of everything from lighting, to audio, to cameras and angles, to editing.
Some 50 project or so later, we’re happy to say that she has far exceeded the early hopes we had for working with her. Always on time. Everything always done to make sure we’re happy and EHI is presenting herself in the light of what she truly is…A School for Amazing Healing.
Camille is all kinds of awesome and if you’ve watched a video from EHI…it’s likely thanks to her talents and dedication. 🙂
Cristobal & Associates – Certified Public Accountants
Ms. Vee and her team of dedicated CPAs have been marvelous to work with for the several years. At EHI, we value production, we value abiding by the rules,…and even more we value people who care.
Ms. Vee and her team really, really care. 🙂
