I have spent nearly 5 years in the health and wellness field and have recently transitioned into more focused holistic practices. I chose this course as I believe in the ability of the body to recover, heal and perform as long as it is respected.  I am blessed to be able to work with clients who have suffered or suffer from such disabling conditions as stroke, obesity, fibromyalgia, arthritis, back pain, knee pain, diabetes and other chronic diseases and see them improve their quality of life.  I consider myself very fortunate to serve in this capacity.
