Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As any human being, I have had challenges and obstacles along my path. Coming down with Epstein Barr in 1993, at a time when nobody knew how to treat it or to even acknowledge it was a daily struggle. I had to mentally create tools to get through the day and study, then to have the physical strength to work. I put myself through school and worked to support myself after school with Chronic Fatigue and joint pain and limitation as my daily friend. Thankfully in 2003, I met holistic practitioners and modalities that facilitated my recovery into remission. This year I contracted Lyme disease and again had to manage working on my own and navigating my strength and focus. I am happy to say it is in remission and I’m back to caring for my patients with strength and the capacity to be a healing space for them as I facilitate their path to wellness.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I have had a few moments that I feel really left a moment where I was self-prizing myself for my accomplishments:
Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Mikael Baryshnikov – a legend in ballet.
Working on professional sports teams is a highlight.
