LifeVantage has appointed Erin Brockovich to its Board of Directors.
“We are thrilled with the addition of Erin Brockovich to our Board,” said LifeVantage Board of Directors Chair Garry Mauro. “She brings an uncommon blend of legal prowess and experience, health and wellness advocacy, and global voice and influence. Her passion, tenacity, outside-the-box thinking, and ability to move health-related issues forward will be a major boon to the company.”
Brockovich has over 35 years of diverse public health, legal, and business successes, both domestically and globally, and is one of the most requested speakers on the international lecture circuit.
As President of Brockovich Research & Consulting, she is currently doing consulting work for three national law firms, involved in numerous environmental projects worldwide, and writing her fourth book scheduled for release next spring.
Raised in a family of athletes and nutrition advocates, she has a deep-rooted passion for health and nutrition and has spent the better part of the past two decades sharing that passion on a global stage. Brockovich became a strong advocate of dietary supplements in particular following an automobile accident that resulted in a serious back injury.
“I am proud to join the LifeVantage family in this capacity at this important time in the company’s history,” Brockovich said. “This is a company I have admired at arm’s length for some time. It’s a company with strong momentum –not just in the US– but globally. In today’s world, actively managing our health has never been so vital. By the same token, it’s never been so easy and accessible. LifeVantage is helping people from every walk of life better manage and optimise their health, and I’m excited to be the newest member of the LifeVantage biohacker community.”
In addition to health and wellness, Brockovich is equally passionate about improving water supply standards worldwide. Her iconic legal battle with the energy industry over groundwater contamination was portrayed in the 2000 Academy Award-winning biographical film that bears her name.
She has requests for her help with water supply issues in every state in the US, Australia, and other international hot spots. She is currently working on cases in California, Texas, Florida, Michigan, Illinois, and Missouri.
Born and raised in Kansas, Brockovich has been awarded myriad health and wellness honours and distinctions over the course of her career, including Harvard School of Public Health’s highest award, the Julius Richmond Award. She has also received an honorary Juris Doctorate from Lewis and Clark and an honorary doctor of humane letters degree from Loyola Marymount University.
Brockovich currently resides in Southern California and has 3 children and 4 grandchildren.
