About Us

Dr. Kim Vanderlinden ND, DTCM
CEO of Hope Science

Who and What Is Hope Science?

Hope Science is a unique, natural products company. We do not offer an entire line of supplements like many companies, rather only a few select products supported by scientific studies and trials.

Founder and CEO, Dr. Vanderlinden, had a patient who had three back surgeries and was still in constant agony. His pain was unbearable. During a clinic visit, Dr. Vanderlinden rubbed some Active Again pain cream (Esterified Fatty Acid Complex) on this patient’s back.  Within minutes his pain began to subside and the sufferer’s eyes sparkled. “I actually have hope again,” the man gleefully stated. Hence, the company’s name was born: Hope Science.

Dr. Vanderlinden’s primary inspiration for natural medicine, and subsequently natural products, was his mother, who had terminal cancer and was given only a few months to live. She survived the disease by using natural medicine instead of the typical allopathic treatment and chemical-based drugs.

We believe that at the very core of medicine should be hope. People with health challenges always hope to get better, but need scientifically proven products, hence our name: Hope Science.

After AT&T, she moved into medical sales and a District Manager position with New England Critical Care, where she worked in the medical industry for the next 12 years, creating a niche with several transplant teams, before leaving her Contracts Manager position to stay home and raise their two children, Ryan and Carly. In 2010 she was offered the Center Director position to open John Harvard Academy, an after-school tutoring and college prep company in Coronado. For the next seven years, Susie “coached” students academically and tried to help each student realize their potential.

While continuing to work at John Harvard Academy, she ran 10 marathons, including the Boston Marathon twice! Currently, she participates in Cross-fit with a fantastic group of people, which is where she met Dr. Kim Vanderlinden. Through Dr. Kim, Susie discovered he owned the pain cream she had been using, the last eight year’s, post ACL surgery, and that it was a Hope Science product. She believed so much in the cream, IP6, and in Dr. Kim’s philosophy, offering HOPE through clinically proven products, she accepted the Regional Sales Manager position at Hope Science and feels blessed to be working with such a special group of people.
