James Maskell is the founder and CEO of Evolution of Medicine and HealCommunity. 

His journey started as a child, growing up in a commune, doing natural medicine from a chiropractor to a holistic dentist and realizing that was not the ”normal way” other kids did their healthcare.

He studied health economics in the UK and traded on the world‘s biggest trading floor before he decided to follow his interest in healthcare. His work since then has evolved to one mission: popularize functional medicine.
