WHAT I DO
I bring a broad range of experiences in areas including healthcare, the arts, finance, service, and retail. I have worked in sales, creative, support, and management. For 20 years I ran my own business and I was the creator of my own product line.
But it was my commitment to sharing and teaching my clients and students how to cultivate a peaceful, mindful, state where I realized the power of being present. It was here that I was able gain the experience and opportunity to develop innovative ways bringing Applied Mindfulness to a variety of applications.
Seeing the power of being present led me to develop these unique approaches in helping others to live a more calm, peaceful, and mindful life, at work and at home. My fascination with becoming more present and more myself changed me in deep and important ways.
I had my own healthcare practice for over 20 years, and have been teaching in the area of personal development since 1998.
Originally from Western New York, I moved to Minnesota to attend the U of M’s MFA program in Theater Design. I earned a Diploma in Herbal Studies from the Australasian College of Herbal Studies, and then became an Advanced Practitioner and instructor in a neuromuscular re-education known as Ortho-Bionomy®.
