About this pro
Because I am truly a synergist. What I mean by that is that I am a Motivational Speaker, a Naturopathic Doctor, an Ayurvedic and Reiki Practitioner, a Licensed Massage Therapist, Qi Gong and Cooking Instructor and more. When I work with clients, I blend the best of what I've learned to best serve them because each modality on its own has its limitations. I do what I love and I love what I do. More importantly, I do what I do because the Holistic Healing Strategies that I use completely reversed and healed the COPD that ruled my life for over 20 years. So I am a true believer. You can read my story on my website. I often say that I don't create dependency; I create butterflies. I ease my clients into their cocoon and then encourage them and keep them on the path while they transform into butterflies. So I love this process of seeing them finally recognize that they are special, lovable and that they have something unique to offer to the world. At that moment, when my client begins to believe in their potential, when they transform from needing help to being an inspiration to others, that is what I love the most about my job. I am honored to be a part of another person's evolutionary process.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes I take all sorts of continuing education courses. I am a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor which requires that I take continuing education courses every year. I am also a Certified Natural Health Professional and a Licensed Massage therapist which requires that I take 30 hours of continuing education credits every other year, so essentially, I'm always learning more about health and healing. I'm curious by nature so I always have more continuing education credits than I need. My favorite areas to study are Qi Gong, Therapeutic Massage, Ayurvedic Therapies and deeper levels of CranioSacral Therapy. At some point I would like to become a yoga teacher as Qi Gong and Yoga complement each other so well--they make the perfect married couple.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?As a young child, I experienced a series of emotional traumas. The following winter, I developed a terrible case of bronchitis (a COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and was afflicted with it every winter of my childhood into adulthood. Eventually, I had to be heavily medicated with pharmaceutical narcotics because my cough caused internal bleeding. Each year my doctors gave me stronger medication, and each subsequent year, the bronchitis would come back worse! In addition, the doctors pumped me full of antibiotics which pretty much ruined my digestive system. By my late 20's, I had adrenal fatigue, my body was racked with pain, I was so congested that I could barely breathe, and it seemed as if EVERYTHING I ate gave me gas - and I'm talkin' 'bout the methane kind, ya'll! Desperate for answers, I began to study Ayurveda and other holistic practices which filled me with optimism for the first time in my life. I learned that what you can "get" you can "un-get." I am living proof that you can truly reverse the course of dis-ease. I no longer have chronic bronchitis, pain or adrenal fatigue, and I've successfully rebuilt my digestive system. Oh, and as a by-product of getting healthy, I lost a bunch of weight and got my self-esteem back too!
