About Us

Mold Mentor


Mold Mentor is the Ann Landers of the mold community. If you have a mold-related question for which you are seeking an answer, you can submit it to Mold Mentor. Questions will be answered based on published, peer-reviewed documentation and first-hand interviews with leading experts in science, medicine and industrial hygiene.

Professional Resources

Mold Mentor is an online community advocate center where people affected by mold and toxins can become more informed and locate professional resources. Minor mold challenges can become mold nightmares that last years simply because of lack of knowledge. Empowering people with information so they can make informed decisions for themselves and their families is the philosophy of Mold Mentor. With fore-knowledge, people can minimize re-exposures from remediation and avoid further damage to their health from potentially harmful side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.

Who is Mold Mentor?


The authors of the book MOLD: The War Within, Kurt and Lee Ann Billings, are the driving force behind Mold Mentor. After their family recovered from mold-and mycotoxin-related illnesses after Hurricane Katrina, the Billings became health advocates for other mold victims. They have spread their message of mold prevention and natural recovery options in articles published in national health magazines, as guests on a nationally syndicated health TV show, and through local and regional newspaper, television and radio. Lee Ann has a BA in Journalism. She is also the author of three children’s books in the Super Bouv Series and is co-author of several additional articles published in national health magazines. Kurt has worked in the media field for multiple years and has authored two prior nonfiction books.
