I believe that we play a fundamental role in creating our lives, our reality, and that it is time that we step up to the plate and take full responsibility for ourselves – our thoughts, our words, our actions, our health & wellness – everything. I believe fear is the biggest block we have – be willing to walk through that and the world is yours! Life is a glorious adventure and we are in charge of the trip. And is it always fun and easy? Well no, but then be in the moment of what is – stomp your feet and feel the emotions of being fully alive. Then sink in more deeply past the thoughts and emotions to the deeper truth of who you are. We are so powerful, such incredible beings, each one of us. Stand in your courage, your beauty and be who you truly are!
Standing with you in Radiance & Joy,
In 1990 I began studying aromatherapy through a variety of professional doorways including clinical studies, emotional release work and subtle aromatherapy. Through continued self study and experimentation my love for this modality continues to grow.
My first licensing in bodywork was in Massage Therapy in 1994. As I moved more and more into gentle, effective, empowering types of work, I found myself seeing more permanent results with the addition of energy therapies. I began teaching energy work in 2000.
Since 2000, I’ve taught workshops and professional trainings helping others integrate heart and practical energy practices, both in healing and personal empowerment modalities. I have been involved in alternative health since the late-80’s and professionally since the early 90’s.
I have my Master of Science degree in Holistic Health studies, I am a Supervisory Instructor in the EMF Balancing Technique (having studied under Peggy Phoenix Dubro) and an Instructor in Quantum Touch hands-on healing.
I have also received training in Jin Shin Jyutsu (High Touch), CranioSacral Therapy (Upledger Institute), the Trager Approach (Trager Institute), Aromatherapy (The East-West School for Herbal & Aromatic Studies), LaStone Therapy (LaStone), Reiki (Usui), Equine Massage (Northwest School for Animal Massage) and Equine Acupuressure (Tallgrass Equine Acupressure). Other studies have included advanced Aromatherapy studies, Aroma Genera, Low Frequency Sound Therapy and Lightbody. I am a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals as well as the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
That said, my passion for personal evolution and empowerment is what has fueled my journey. The challenges I’ve had, while not easy or enjoyable, have taught me so very much on all levels. We are incredible beings and have the ability to live our lives full of health and happiness. That is what I choose.

I am thrilled to be living in the country again, planting a garden, eating local foods, enjoying the forests, mountains and hearing about local bear and cougar sightings. It feeds my soul. I self-published my first cookbook in 1992 and while I have always threatened to do another one, I’ve just done updates and small new editions for family gifts. But who knows, one of these days…..
As life unfolds in the most perfect way, I am living my dream come true with great passion in the beautiful Northwest. I’d love to hear from other adventurers who love the game of life. Click Here to drop me a line.
When you enjoy your life, the love you give to others is just that much better.
Be Well. Live Life. Find Passion.
