About Anna Russ
Ex-Biotech, turned Ayurvedic Practitioner Herbal Formulator, Anna W. Russ is committed to helping people lead meaningful, healthy lives, naturally.  As founder of PURE®, Anna's mission focuses on holistic lifestyle education and training. Over 20 years as clinical researcher, program manager and educator gives Anna unique perspective and insight into this field.

Anna has studied under Deepak Chopra and David Frawley, key thought leaders in the field of Ayurveda. She received her Ayurvedic certification through Sai Ayurvedic College and continued her training through Maharishi Ayurveda Wellness Program. 

To offer a truly comprehensive lifestyle program she furthered her training with RYT-200 Yoga Teacher certification and advanced Health Fitness certification through American College of Sports Medicine.

As a clinical researcher, she managed trials for leading global biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies including GlaxoSmithKline, Amgen and Genentech. This afforded her a unique insight into the science of treating disease. The pivot point came early on in her career when she began to observe significant gaps in the way allopathic medicine manages disease. This compelled her to explore other healing modalities that recognizes the significant role the mind-body connection plays in wellness. Ultimately this lead her to shifting focus and energy from treating disease to preventing it. 

In 2011, she launched an exciting venture where she brings the knowledge of modern science fused with ancient wisdom to educate individuals and organizations on how to improve their health, productivity and the most important health indicator, the joy in their life. 

Anna is an Ironman competitor, volunteers on the Scientific Advisory Board for Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancers and in her down time loves hanging around on the front porch with her husband Ted and their dog Henry.
