I am a Certified Zen Shiatsu Practitioner, although my professional life began in the travel industry helping people live their dreams and create lifelong memories. During that time I developed a great love and awareness of Nature and all that she has to offer. I have been an avid organic gardener for over 25 years, having cultivated a compelling sense of responsibility to cherish and nurture the Earth and protect the health of our planet.
I feel that an unyielding bond with the Earth, Nature, and Spirit are vital to our personal health and inner peace. This is what ultimately led me to the study of Zen Shiatsu, where it is believed that all aspects of Nature and Spirit are undeniably woven into the very core of our being. I am an AOBTA Nationally-Certified Practitioner of Zen Shiatsu, graduating after two years of study from the renowned Zen Shiatsu Chicago. I went on to complete advanced post-graduate training in the Zenki Soho style of Shiatsu, which is a practice that delivers clinical results with chronic, degenerative and autoimmune conditions. Additionally, I frequently participate in continuing education classes to further expand my knowledge and hone my skills.
