"All About You".
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. In 2003 I dedicated myself to help a bed ridden client that went undiagnosed for nine years with Lyme disease.
We worked together for 2 years once a week and today that client is a very good friend and walks the track every day and has been able to enjoy life. We both worked diligently toward her goal to be able to walk again.
