Suffice to say I was raised in a hostile environment that didn’t encourage discovery or growth. I wasn’t allowed to graduate high school (because that would shine a light on my achievements), and “no” was a dangerous word in my home, so it wasn’t in my vocabulary. Ever.
I dampened down, became small, and didn’t have a voice. As I got older I became a chameleon. I copied what I liked about others and faked my way through life. From hairstyles to handwriting. If someone asked for my opinion I’d panic, get that familiar lump in my throat, and as my heart raced, I desperately searched my soul for one original thought. But, crickets … absolutely nothing.

And I’m trained in over 150 energetic modalities utilizing color, light, sound, breath, movement, energetic contact, visualization, and the Meridian system, to shift from “Arrgh!” to “Ahhhh…” in a nanosecond.
I’m zhuzhing up my own life story enjoying time with my main squeeze, George (married 40 years and loving life with him!), volunteering in the deaf community (folks who’ve taught me volumes about courage and connection), creating organic epicurean delights, and hiking in the spectacular Shenandoah Valley. Oh, and mastering a fabulous, no-bake vegan cheesecake!
