Like many in the natural healing world, I came to this field as a result of my personal health and life-purpose crisis.  Good fortune dropped me in the hands of some of the leading holistic healers and teachers, who, in addition to helping resolve my health challenges, also started me on my way to learning and being able to help others.

It is my mission and my joy to help people achieve vibrant states of wellness on physical, emotional and energetic levels and to fully express their very best in all aspects of life.

I love to learn and to share knowledge with others, and am on a permanent quest to deepen my skills and learn new ways to help my clients.  The journey thus far has included:

  • Traditional naturopathic degree and continuing post-graduate training with specialists from the U.S., Europe and Australia
  • Taught natural healing methods and counseled students/clients for three years at the Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute
  • Certified Aromatherapist, National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy; continuing study with leading practitioners in the U.S., France and South America

  • Skilled in multiple forms of kinesiology assessments, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET)Certified professional coach by the International Coach Federation

  • First-hand experience running a private business, and leading a multi-million dollar division of a large corporation in a challenging emerging market
