I grew up in an educational family, at a time when being a teacher or a nurse were the professional options for women. Since childhood, I’ve been influenced by my parents toward education, and by my live-in grandmother toward the magic of healing arts.

My formal education includes a Doctorate in Educational Leadership,  Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Learning, and lots of post-graduate education. My formal bodywork training over 22 years includes over 2,500 hours: as a graduate of the Carolina School of Massage, then as a Basic Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner, and registered Instructor of Ortho-Bionomy®.  More recent training includes Medical Intuitive series  with Medical Intuitive Master Healer Kim Seer, certification as a Matrix Energetics® Practitioner with Richard Bartlett ND/DC, and continuing studies of complementary consciousness technologies.

For nearly 25 years I enjoyed a stimulating professional career as a classroom teacher, professor, teacher educator, organization development/change consultant, instructional designer, curriculum developer, training director, and wellness coordinator. In each of these roles, I was the innovator who co-created transformation and new opportunities for individuals and systems in a variety of educational and government settings.

Then the positive results of my intuitive healing work with my mom, as she struggled with cancer, led to my transformation into healing practices and  related therapeutic education.  My initial massage training included a variety of modalities (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Joint Mobilization, Polarity, Sports Massage, Pregnancy Massage and more).  Early in my client practice, I experienced osteopathically-based, gentle body therapy that emphasizes comfort in working with the whole being. Many years of practicing and teaching this bodywork system deepened my skills using “gentle touch with deep results” – with both clients and bodywork students across the US.

As my work has grown and expanded to embrace quantum consciousness technologies and medical intuitive applications, my ONE BODYsm instruction has evolved to incorporate and integrate techniques and resources that afford options for attending and responding to individual clients more effectively as they open to infinite possibilities for transformation.  Complementary concepts from these healing systems are key to my bodywork practice and instruction:  honoring the whole being, respecting our innate capacity to heal and self-correct, surrendering intention and allowing more to happen, facilitating a healing conversation of body, mind, and spirit in the present moment, and attending 100% to infinite possibilities.

Now I play at my chosen work in the best of both worlds combining healing and teaching/learning.

For Clients and Community  – I enjoy interactive work with my clients in both office and phone sessions.  Our focus is to restore balance and well-being in body, mind, and spirit, as well as to access individual transformation through gentle, respectful, and comfortable bodywork and self care.

For Bodywork Practitioners – I’m inspired by my students in classes across the US, who honor, learn, and integrate One Body techniques with their clients,  resulting in transformation and well-being in both practitioners and clients.

I’m living my dream, and loving it!
