My Story


Throughout four decades of learning and advocating for Natural Integrative health and metaphysical healing practices, I’ve come to realize that we are not just physical and vital, but energetic beings, universally connected for a purpose greater than self. I continually strive to be a character-molding force for others by focusing on being a writer, humanitarian, health-coach-speaker, healing facilitator, educator and artist. I’m passionate about motivating others to build a stronger emotional core and to connect with their energetic self. So, I developed and published self-help Gratitude Keeper® Core Therapy Cards.

I’m the founder of the Corporation Gratitude Keeper®, designed to work with people in developing regions of the world in order to provide them with clean potable water and a sustainable income. As a result of this work, thousands of people now benefit from accessing clean water. Their livelihood has improved by having better health and time for education.​

I am grateful for all the support I’ve had to help me launch this humanitarian outreach. I’m absolutely motivated, and proud of my accomplishments.  

I am encouraged to connect, inspire, and positively impact other people’s lives to help them rise. 


-Dr. Maxine McLean

I was inspired to build wells in order that families can access clean drinkable water in different parts of the world. But, had no idea that I had been noticed. I’m humbled and grateful; it’s indeed and honour. Thanks Eminence for the recognition.
