Lineage & Training

Curious about my background? While I believe life is the greatest teacher, so many amazing mentors have played (and are playing!) an important role in shaping who I am as a healer and I still feel them walk beside me and cherish the wisdom that they've shared. I've listed the highlights below.

First, a little ancient history…

I have a BA in Music Performance (oboe/EH) from Temple University (2002) which was followed by miscellaneous musical adventures in my early career, all of which have almost no bearing on my work in holistic health, except that they taught me that the richest learning is had by doing.  

In 2003 and 2004, while on a Broadway tour and later, working in an orchestra in Mexico, I taught myself to code. This grew into a twelve-year career in web design, marketing, and online course development and management. I left the field in January of 2016 (with great relief!) though I still manage my own projects when the spirit moves me.
