Dr. Eschtruth is undoubtedly the living osteopath who has spent more time with Dr. Fulford and is still the closest to his philosophy of life and work.
She graduated from the Chicago College of Osteopathy in 1964 and has worked as an osteopath in Oregon ever since. Throughout her career, she has been an active member and lecturer at the Osteopathic Cranial Academy, of which she was also vice president from 1981 to 1982 and later president between 1984 and 1986. In 2005 she was elected Mentor Hall of Fame by the American Osteopathic Association, and in 2009 she was appointed honorary member of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy.
She spent virtually her entire professional career in close contact with Dr. Fulford. Upon his death, she continued his teachings through various courses and conferences in the United States and worldwide.
