Mountain Peak Nutritionals Honored by AANP as Corporation of the Year Mary Closson | Director of Membership and Development, OANP
OANP’s Silver Supporter, Mountain Peak Nutritionals, Receives Recognition at AANP’s Annual Conference in Phoenix.
An extra surge of Oregon enthusiasm was in the air at the AANP award banquet held Saturday, August 9th at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix. When the announcement came that the recipient of the Corporation of the Year Award was Mountain Peak Nutritionals, the enthusiasm turned into wild applause as Jim and Karen Massey made their way to the stage to accept the award.
Mountain Peak Nutritionals (MPN), a Portland, Oregon based company, was founded in 1995 when Jim Massey had a thriving naturopathic medicine practice in Colorado. From the very beginning, MPN was established with a core philosophy that it supports the efforts and goals of naturopathic medicine.
“MPN was created as a way to raise money for the Colorado Association of Naturopathic Doctors back in 1995,” noted Jim Massey. “We needed to raise money to help pay for the two lobbyists who were helping us get a naturopathic law. The financial support we have provided to the different state licensure efforts, the AANP and the naturopathic medical schools are just a reflection of the support we receive from our incredible naturopathic community. We are just giving back to a profession that has provided us with a way to truly make a healthy difference in the lives of people who discover empowering themselves with our medicine.”
MPN’s condition specific formulas® are naturopathic in philosophy and in their action. “I truly love being an alchemist and formulator,” Massey continued. “But it was definitely a group effort. Karen and I have received so much genius from the input of other NDs that MPN and the formulas are the result of the naturopathic community's assistance.”
Joining her husband at the podium, company co-founder Karen Massey added, “We are surprised and delighted to receive this award. There are so many deserving companies from which to choose that Jim and I feel very humbled by this honor.”
Mountain Peak Nutritionals has been a longtime supporter of OANP. Through serving as a Silver-level supporter, Mountain Peak Nutritionals has been instrumental in helping OANP continue its legislative advocacy programs.
