"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." Pablo Picasso
And, congratulations on taking the time to explore options that support your health and your family's well-being.
I am passionate about being healthy, living well, enriching the lives of others and making a difference in the world.
This website is designed to educate, inspire and empower you. It provides an opportunity to create the healthy, balanced life that you desire and deserve. As we each develop a personal healthcare system focused on prevention and self care, we are empowered to live a joyful, healthy, and meaningful life, which, I believe, is what we all aspire to and are here for.
In 1990, I opened a private practice as a Holistic Practitioner and Educator combining a variety of energy medicine and healing arts practices. From 1998-2007, I was Founder and Director of "Holistic Alternatives," a ME licensed proprietary school providing accredited training programs in the healing arts and personal enrichment seminars for the community. As an independent contractor, I partnered with massage schools as a Polarity Therapy instructor and I was a frequent guest speaker for businesses and educational facilities throughout the state of Maine.
My introduction to Nikken, a Japanese Health Research Institute, expanded my scope of practice to include advanced magnetic and far-infrared technologies, as well as nutritional, environmental and lifestyle solutions. Though I have enjoyed a plethora of personal product experiences, I was thrilled that Nikken's wellness solutions were instrumental in my total recovery from a near-death heart health challenge, triggered by chemical toxins from my drinking water, that the medical community did not expect me to recover from.
I look forward to being of service to you - to pay it forward - to invite you to live your best life - with health and balance in mind, body, family, society, and finances.
Be Healthy, Live Well, Enjoy Balance!
"Divine Elegance" is a 7-minute photographic prose presentation I created for PechaKucha, a community-sharing event. It would be more appropriately placed on my PhotoArt page, yet it resides here.
