"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." Pablo Picasso
I am passionate about being healthy, living well, enriching the lives of others and making a difference in the world.
Like a buffet, this website has a variety of “dishes.” As you browse, you will discover that total wellness includes health in body, mind, family, society, finances, creativity, lifestyle and environment.
I invite you to explore how you can take ownership of these key areas and truly have the opportunity to discover, live and share your best life.
Choice gives us the rich opportunity to change our lives and transform our world.
Nature, dance, music, photography, landscape gardening, health, healing, spirituality, creativity, beauty and freedom fuel my zest for living. I am blessed with a wonderful son and I am graced with an ever-widening circle of amazing friends.
I have had four near-death experiences and my journey to health included natural methods that assisted in healing my body, mind and spirit. Energy healing, therapeutic bodywork and innovative wellness products created an environment for my body to recover, to repair and to ultimately perform more efficiently.
"Energy is the vital force in the body and the core resource that supports our body's innate ability for self-repair and renewal."
As a Board Certified Polarity Practitioner and Educator, Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Breath Facilitator, Cranial-Sacral Practitioner and Health Coach, I have had the honor of positively impacting many lives.
Along with my private practice in the Healing Arts, I was also Founder, Director and Faculty of a licensed proprietary school where I provided approved training programs and personal enrichment courses. I’ve been on the teaching staff of multiple massage schools and facilitated programs for businesses, educational systems, healthcare facilities and retreat centers.
As an Entrepreneur in a collaborative, home-based, global business with Nikken, a company committed to empowering people to fulfill their potential and achieve balanced living, my scope of practice and personal vision of what's truly possible in the world have exponentially expanded.
Educating people about unique, life-enhancing solutions that support total wellness while mentoring others to discover their dreams, achieve their goals, and to live their best lives are incredibly rewarding and life-changing opportunities.
"Divine Elegance" is a 7-minute photographic prose presentation I created for PechaKucha, a community-sharing event.
