Most of her career she was in academia, teaching and research in Mineralogy and Materials Sciences.  On her heart is to see brokenhearted healed, captives delivered, sight and vision restored to the blind, and the oppressed set free (Luke 4:18). She has the desire to see people, specifically Christians in business and ministry, in God’s presence, experiencing His love. As a scientist, she has a unique, straight-forward approach.

After bible school and training, Dr. Burkhard was called to minister with preaching, teaching and healing at a local church for several years. She has seen many delivered and physically healed.


Her Scientific Career

When working in academia of Earth-and Materials Sciences, Dr. Burkhard’s special interest was in processes, reactions and genesis of minerals and rocks, in relation to the dynamics of the earth. Here, she had specified in physical-chemical processes in volcanic and synthetic glass, such as redox-reaction, and the geochemistry and genesis of ore minerals of serpentinites, and in granites. Based on that background, she later invented a new material with the functionality to adsorb and desorb water from air, Elapearl.  Dr. Burkhard has a
